Lots of new learning opportunities today. Division 1 started the day with a Mystery Skype to Quakertown, Pennsylvania. Finding a small town proved to be much trickier than finding a big city. Students have discovered that using different resources will be important when narrowing down some of the locations. Also, new terms such as 'county' arose today; great for learning more about geography.
In the afternoon after French, we read two chapters from One for the Murphys. Just prior to that the students were introduced to a 'slow chat' on twitter and middletons class completed their first official two tweets. After the chapters were read, students were given a chance to discuss the characters at a deeper level. The photo on the right has Cookie Monster explaining the difference on the scale of truth versus lies to Cat. I loved listening to their conversations!
1) Math - grade 7s - nothing tonight
- grade 6s - worksheet
2) French - quiz next Wednesday
3) Work on Animoto- please use the green outline/criteria to direct the framework of this assignment
4) Complete the comment on the website. This one will take more thought, time and care to complete. Use writer's mumble before you submit. I would suggest you actually type up the work on a word document first as this will help with spelling and grammar mistakes.
Comment: We are coming to understand that Carley is not your average girl. She has many traits to her personlity. What have you noticed about her personality? What type of person is she? Use evidence from the story to support your thinking. Mrs. Murphy is also a very important character in the story. If you were Mrs. Murphy, how would you react to Carley and her behaviours? Why do you think that Mrs. Murphy is showing so much patience?
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.
