We have not got into the details of adding or subtracting integers for the Grade 8s, so we are just dealing in basics.  That's okay, we are doing things one step at a time.  Here are some games to get you prepared for Friday's test:

I had an example, on the board, of how a comma can change the meaning in a sentence.   Here is one, using Brandon as an example:

As for some other work on commas, we took up the work from last night (some students did not do it) and for homework tonight, the students are going to apply the initial rules they learned about commas:

In light of the Progress Report going home, I want you to know that a Homework chart is used in the class to track work completion.  Here is a photo of it.  It is pretty simple:  Happy Face for completion and Red X indicating work not handed in.

After a couple of weeks away from Media Literacy, I have returned to the "cube" to have the students explore ads.  Using the cube will keep the key concepts of Media Literacy fresh in their minds:

Sample used by Mr. P

Comma sentences (6 in total) based on the three rules you learned from last night's homework.  This is to be done in the Literacy folder.  This is for the 7s and 8s.

Math tests for Grade 7 and 8 on Monday.  Study sheets were handed in today and be returned tomorrow for weekend review.

Have a good evening.
