Hey everyone, just giving an update of what we are doing in our classes!
We are in full swing of our Sex Ed. chapter. Please ensure if you HAVE NOT handed in your final project for The Skin I’m In, to do so. Marks are going up on SAS, so if you have not yet handed it in, it will be marked as NHI until I receive it. Also, part of this mark included the questions that are in your portfolio, so it’s your job to get those to me as well! Any questions, please let me know!!
In both classes we are in the midst of finishing up our last novel Home of the Brave. We are also working on some poetry and finishing up our silent reading novels. Only a few weeks left, but still lots to do!!!
Hello to everyone!
I just wanted to give an overview of what the last couple months will look like!
For my LA classes, we are doing our third and final Novel Study: Home of the Brave! This book will be a quick read, with lots of interactive work within each chapter.
We will be starting Sex Ed. on Monday, so if you have not passed in your permission form, please bring it in! If you have a lost it, please bring a note signed by your parents!
Also, I have passed out your final project for the book we read in class ‘The Skin I’m In’. This will be due next class, so please do your best to pass it in along with your questions from the book and your drawing! Please let me know if you have any questions or if you’re about passing it on time!
I just want to wish everyone a Happy Easter and hope that you all have a nice break! The weather looks promising, so hopefully you all get outside to enjoy!
Just a recap/ catch-up on the classes!
Health– I’m putting a push on finishing our novel so we can move on to other things! Don’t forget there will be a 2 part assignment once we finish the book, so if you know you are going to miss class time, please make sure you get the directions for this project!
Language Arts– We are back into our silent reading! Such an important thing to practice, so make sure you have your book! Everyone has been super great at bringing their books- remember you can leave it in class if you think you might forget it!! We have also been working on our persuasive writing, which has been great! Next week we may switch over and try a debate…and I hope to introduce some descriptive writing as well!
Have a great long weekend!!
I just wanted to send out an overview of our schedule for the next month or so.
Language Arts: We will be finishing up our Outsiders project and then heading into some reading and writing. We are also going to work towards having an in-class debate. Stay tuned for details.
Health: we are working on finishing up our Health book, but I am going to put a push on to finish our in class novel so we can do the attached assignment.
Keep in mind that we will be doing a lot of our work on google docs, practicing our computer and writing skills.
Just want to wish all my classes a great March Break! Just filling you in on a few items for after the break!
Health: We will continue on in our book, and continue to read our class novel. There will be a final project to do with this book, so we will try and finish the novel fairly quickly after the break!
Language Arts: I’m not sure how many students will be in school tomorrow, but if you feel behind or wish to do work over the break, feel free to take home your duo-tang and the Outsiders novel. Upon returning from break, we will do a full recap of the novel and finish correcting our chapter questions. I will also be giving you the movie assignment to do. We will be watching the movie as soon as we return from break and completing this assignment for homework. The due date for your final project for the Outsiders is March 31st. Most of you have started working on your projects already, but for those who have not- you will have a few days after the break. I will only be giving you one class to work on the projects, so if you have any questions please come and see me! For anyone who has missed in class work (worth marks), please come and see me after break for direction and you can complete these assignments for marks!
I wish everyone a great, relaxing March Break!
Can’t wait to see you all at school on Tuesday! We have had a very long break! I hope you all are ready to get right back into it! 🙂
For my two Language Arts classes, we will be continuing on with The Outsiders novel study! This will probably take us right to March Break, and maybe after depending on weather and how we work in class! With The Outsiders, you will have some work to do in and out of class, so please be aware of this if you happen to miss a class. You don’t want to get behind on this book, as you will want all the possible notes for you final projects!
For my Heath class, we will continue to read the book “The Skin I’m In” aloud in class. This will happen sporadically in our classes, as I only have one copy of the book. I do, however, have questions that go along with this book and they will be in your folders. We will be answering them in class. Along with this book, we will also be continuing on in our Health book. You may have work to take home with you depending on how we use our class time, so please be prepared for this. If you miss a class, make sure you catch up from a friend, or come and see me!!!
Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow! It will be Day 4!
I just wanted to let my English classes know that I have posted marks onto SAS. Anything that has not been completed and handed in, is marked as such. Once I receive the completed work, I will change the status. If I do not receive the completed work, the status will stay as NHI.
Just a reminder to all students and parents, that if there are ever any questions or concerns regarding anything we are doing in class, or homework, please feel free to email me or comment on the blog!
Welcome back, I hope everyone had a great long break! 2017 is going to be a great year! We have lots of things to cover, but hard work and a positive attitude will help make the second half of the school year go smoothly!
For my Language Arts classes, we will be focusing a lot on reading and writing, and working in our new duo-tangs!
For my Health class, we will continue working in the book and will continue to have some great discussions!
I look forward to the next six months!!
Just letting you know I think I have finally mastered SAS. So if you are someone who gets automatic alerts or notifications- they may have been plentiful last Friday, and I apologize. I just needed to fix a few things. Either way, SAS should be up to date with all class marks right now, and if there are ever any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me!
Busy day today! Just wanted to remind my Language Arts classes about their quiz Tuesday and Underground to Canada Final Project due Wednesday. Also, to my Health classes, if you have any late work, please pass it in on Tuesday.
Also a reminder to parents, I do not have a homeroom, therefore I do not have any scheduled times for P-T Interviews. However, if you would like to see my on Thursday evening, I ‘ll be around from 6-8pm, and on Friday – all day! I should be in my classroom, Room 805, but if that changes I will let you know!
