Jumping Tuesday

Hello parents and students, 

I hope everyone is having a great rain-free Tuesday. It was a wonderful day back to school. We started the day with math and reviewing coordinates, I have also signed off on all the pictures and the students have tonight to colour it. The students have to remember to use different material, shading, lines, colour etc. 

Then in math, we learned all about scatter plots and trends in graphs. Here is a video in case the students get stuck (it is very in depth and more detailed than the students require). 

Next, we completed our spelling test and our literature circles which have been marked for the students. We will be having a final project for Hatchet but I have given an extra week for any students that feel that they need to catch up in the book. The students were also given their journals for the "Healthy New You Project". Every night, the students have to summarize their day and then answer two questions from the question list, by the end of the project they will have answered all questions. Along the way, the students can also take pictures of the changes they have made and anything else they want to share which will be added to the final reflection at the end. 

Additionally, today we reviewed our pre-assessment for the OWA; we discussed the rubric together and created a success criteria. The students then graded their pre-assessment OWA. Tomorrow, we will complete a practice OWA and then on Thursday, the students will complete their post-assessment for the persuasive speech OWA. 

In UOI, we reviewed the circulatory system worksheet and then discussed the nervous system. Tomorrow, the students will be creating review questions with their group (5 altogether). These 5 questions will be put into a review sheet (25 questions) for the students. Next Monday, they have a quiz based on 10 questions from that review sheet. 

At the end of the day today, we got a chance to participate in the Jump Rope for Heart, here are pictures from the event with a special message at the bottom of the blog.
