Weekly Update: Sept. 11

Hello!

It’s the first full, five day week of the school year! Here’s what’s happening this week:

  • ELA 7- We are getting in the swing of things! Students will start each class with quiet reading on days 1, 3, 5 so every student should have a book they are reading. We will be starting to write in our writing journals on Days 2, 4, and 6 at the start of each class. I have notebooks students can use, but if they would like to bring their own they can. We will be working on “Where I’m From” poems this week.
  • Math 7- We are working on divisibility rules. Students will be doing a variety of activities and practice this week and will complete their exit cards towards the end of the week. Some students have indicated that they struggle with their math facts (multiplication and division), it might be worthwhile to practice at home before we start on multiplying and dividing decimals in the next couple weeks.
  • Science 9- We are starting our first unit on the Universe on Tuesday. We will not have class on Thursday due to Cougar Fun Day.

Upcoming dates:

  • Thursday, Sept. 14- Cougar Fun Day and Colour Day. Grade 7’s wear red.
  • Friday, Sept. 15- Ms. Korver away for professional development.
  • Thursday, Sept. 21- Picture Day
  • Tuesday, Sept. 26- Ms. Korver away for a LF (learning facilitator) meeting

Weekly Update: Sept. 5

Hello! The first two days will be spent on classroom set up and focusing on building a classroom community. Later in the week we will begin to get into specific subjects:

  • ELA7- We will be spending this week and early next week surrounded by books and setting students up for independent reading. Students will be spending the first 15 minutes of ELA class either reading (odd days) or doing a quick write journal entry (even days).  If students have a book at home that they are currently reading, they can bring it to class. If not, I have a pretty extensive classroom library and we will be accessing the school library as well.
  • Math7- Later in the week, we will be doing some review activities and quick screens to be able to see where students strengths and weakness’ are in math class. We will then do a quick review on multiplication and division.
  • Science 9- We have science on Wednesday and Friday of this week.  Both classes will be spent on building class expectations and getting to know students. We will start on our Universe unit next week.

Have a great week!
