Hello!

Here’s what’s happening over the next two weeks:

  • ELA- We are nearing the finish of A Long Walk to Water. We will be doing some wrap up reflection activities to wrap up our thinking and coming back to our big question, “What responsibility do individuals have to respond to the needs of refugees?”  As writer’s we are working on brainstorming ideas leading into our “This I Believe” personal narrative essay.

A couple reminders:

  • Some students do not have a calculator for math. Please check if your students has a working calculator.

Weekly Update: Oct. 16

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful fall weekend! Here’s what’s happening in 7Korver this week:

  • ELA 7- Continuing to read and discuss A Long Walk to Water. We will be starting to introduce our next narrative writing assignment later this week and will be using some class time on Monday and Tuesday to prep for Parent-Teacher Interviews
  • Math 7-  Most students have completed their last round of exit cards. We are moving on to decimals, fractions, and percents this week. We have also set up accounts with code.org for students to have the opportunity to learn to code in math class- coding allows students to apply mathematical concepts (geometry, spatial sense, patterning, algebra, formulas) to relevant scenarios. It also tests their logic, critical thinking skills, and problem-solving skills. For most students, this will act as an enrichment opportunity to focus on when they have demonstrated a solid understanding of the math concepts we are learning in class. Students are more than welcome to access it at home as well. If you are interested in more information click here, here, and here.

  • Tuesday, Oct. 17- Ms. Korver away for Math meetings
