It was easy to tell that it was a full moon last night. It always amazes me how the pull of the moon's gravity can effect the energy level in the class. At the end of the day we had our first family meeting to discuss options for self-regulating behaviours in the future. Many great suggestions were shared.
Division 1 completed our second Mystery Skype today. Even though the other class figured out Vancouver before we discovered their location, the kids continued to narrow in and eventually determine school was in Cincinnati, Ohio. Developing geography knowledge will play an important role in the successes of our future Mystery Skype sessions.
1) Math - grade 7s - complete pg 14, #1- 8; study for quiz that will occur on Tuesday
- grade 6s - nothing (review is always a good option)
2) Socials - review longitude and latitude. Look on the internet tonight to see what line of latitude Vancouver is on.
3) LA - check the global read aloud website (see link on right hand side of this page under Language Arts). See if you can carry on the conversation that has now begun with Mrs. Lott's grade 6s.
4) Bring USB with photos on it for tomorrow.
5) Ice skating notices
6) PE tomorrow
Important reminder about Meet the Teacher: The PAC BBQ is from 4 - 7. The open classroom for grades 6/7 (a time for students to come in with parents to show them the class) is from 5 - 5:30. The parent meeting with the grade 6/7 teacher is from 5:30 to 6:00 in the intermediate open area.
Comment: What is one country that can be found on either equator or prime meridian. It must be a different answer than your peers so read carefully. Please state your answer in a complete sentence rather than one word. Also, comment on how we can make our next skype time even better.
I am a grade 7 teacher who has been teaching in the Surrey School District for over 28 years. I love to read, garden, walk, and spend time with family, friends and my golden retriever Kona.
