Today, 8F and 8A corrected the review packet that was to be completed for homework during the weekend. They then placed it in their portfolios. They also started working on a grade 9 placement test. It is to be done for Wednesday. I will give them the anwers then.
8C and 8G need to complete the review packet for tomorrow so we can correct it tomorrow and place the results in their portfolios. They will then receive the grade 9 placement test that needs to be completed for Wednesday. The answers will be given to them then.
Thank you and have a great day.
Today, we missed our regular math class because of the Annual grade 8 Track Day. On Monday, 8C and 8G will get the entire period to continue working on the bilingual review packet of 79 questions that cover all 17 outcomes we have seen this year in math. They already had one full class to work on these. If by the end of Monday's class they are not completed, they will be assigned for homework. On Tuesday, we will correct them together.
Have a great weekend
These two classes have been assigned for homework to complete the 79 bilingual questions relating to all 17 outcomes we have covered this year. Today was the second full day they had to do these in class so they should be almost completed. We will correct these on Monday so it important that they are completed over the weekend.
Thank you and have a great day
Today, students handed in their tellellations they have been working on for the past week. They also continued working on their review packets that touches on ALL 17 grade 8 math outcomes covered this year. Answers will be given next week. There is no homework assigned for tonight. Don't forget that the grade 8 Track and Field meet is scheduled for tomorrow so make sure to dress appropriately for the occasion and bring your water bottles. I suspect that 8F will bring home the prize this year ;)
Have a great day
Students are presenting their ideal schools tomorrow. See the posted docs for a model.
Tomorrow will be the last day students will have class time to work on their project on tessellations. If they are not completed tomorrow, it will be assigned for homework and will be collected on Thursday (June 15th, 2017).
We will then continue working on a end of the year review packet (79 questions) that will touch upon all 17 outcomes we have covered this year in grade 8 math. Once that is complete, students will have the opportunity to re-do the diagnostic test they wrote in September 2016 and February 2017. We will then find the average of all three results.
Have a great day
