Homework, Drake Dance-a-Thon and Movie Night
Out of 20 students who were assigned homework for this past weekend, only 9 completed it. The class was required to come up with 3 sentences to support a topic sentence they worked on last week. Needless to say, I was disappointed at the lack of effort of many of the Grade 7 and 8 students to complete such a short task.
Junior put in a lot of effort to come up with a draft paragraph. I provided him with some feedback on it:
This homework should be completed for tomorrow.
The Grade 8s had some review questions for the upcoming Algebra test. We will take those up in class tomorrow. I am pleased with the effort that some of the students are putting into this challenging unit that has bridged the gap between the Measurement and Algebra strands in Math. Here is a sample image of two things: 1. An example question completed by me and 2. A couple of questions completed by Megan.
Here are a few announcements concerning events coming up in the school.
