CBC's The National explains UBER (to supplement tonight's reading), concluding sentences, and sorting through end of Term work

A CBC National news item to supplement some class reading.

As we continue to work on writing paragraphs, we turned our attention to the part that a lot of students have difficulty with:  the concluding sentence.

Here is an exercise we are working on.  It involves selecting a given concluding sentence from a list and then developing the details and topic sentence for it.

While the Grade 8s had to complete a Study Sheet for the upcoming test, the Grade 7s had a Math challenge as there final review.  I posted pictures of them in action yesterday.  Today, I posted the results of the team that won (showed the work with supporting details, images, and calculations.

Report card season is on the horizon and a lot of time is being spent completing work and preparing for a new term.  At this time of year, there are a lot of tests and final pieces of assessment happening.

So, this entry will be short as I sort through material and prepare to write my report cards.
