A busy Thursday, the Eglinton Crosstown LRT, Learning Skills, and Students catching up on outstanding work

It was a very busy Thursday at AMG.  A number of Grade 6s visited from some of our feeder schools to see if our school would be a good fit for them in Grade 7.  That took up most of the morning. On a Day 5 in the cycle, I do not see the students very much.

The Grade 8s from Mr. Chung's class had a workshop in Stress Management, put on by our school Social Worker, Kandie Learmonth, in the early part of the afternoon.  Needless to say, a lot of work was not completed and the students' collective energy was not up for a lot of learning.  So, I will wait until Monday.  This also includes beginning work on the Mysteries of Harris Burdick narrative paragraph assignment.

This website is in reference to the Eglinton-Crosstown tunnelling.  I am going to use one of the measurements for an upcoming Math test.

The diameter of this tunnel is 5.75m.

The map of this future transit project is here:

There have been some students who taken some responsibility for not completing the work on the Homework chart and handed it in.  I will still grade it, but  time is running out because Report Cards are around the corner.

As for the Report Cards, I had the class fill in a self-evaluation based on the actual page 1.  To help the students along, I used a mock example.

Develop at least 3 sentences to support the topic sentence we worked around in relation to "Margaret." This work was to be completed in the Language notebook.

Have a good weekend.
