Coming Up at CapHill (June 20th to 24th)

Hello amazing humans of Division 7!

I hope you are all having a good weekend – one of the last before the end of the school year! Here is a very long post with lots of information about the week. My apologies for the delay!

I look forward to a day full of fun tomorrow with our canoeing trip and Loonie Swim!

Our latest “Homework” board looks like this:

  • Language Arts
    Bloom’s Taxonomy Book Review Ball (Tues, Jun 21)
    Survival Guide for Mr. Chu’s Future Students (Fri, Jun 24)
  • Social Studies
    Big Issues Speeches Done and Ready to Present! (Thurs, Jun 23)
  • ADST
    MACC’sterChef (Tues, Jun 21)

In language arts, our Bloom Taxonomy book reviews are being completed and they look SUPER COOL! There have been some really in-depth learning happening and students are really showing a lot of their understanding and engagement with the novel.

 

In social studies, students are finishing up their “Big Issues” speech and are getting ready to finish off their final copies and have them ready to present beginning on either Wednesday or Thursday.

In art… I have forgotten to post some of the AMAZING artwork that students created using mixed media and collage methods. These stunning creations took a lot of time, precision, but also creativity to make them look as stunning as they are.

 

In science, students got to take part in some experiential learning about circuits to create their own working circuit to turn on a light. This workshop was brought to us by SCWIST (Society for Canadian Women in Science and Technology), and their presenters will be joining us again this coming Tuesday for another workshop on a biological science topic. Mr. Chu can’t wait to see what kind of things they will do! Word on the street is that it has something to do with DNA.

In ADST, students are being reminded to finish off their MACC’sterChef videos after utilizing all 3 mystery boxes on: type of meal, colour, and required nutrients! May the best chef prevail!

Hello wonderful people of Division 7!

I hope you are all having a good weekend – the first weekend of June! How exciting!! (yet… also bittersweet at the same time as the school year starts wrapping up.)

I have a big shout-out to our Grade 4/5 track team! Mr. Chu is insanely proud of the results and dedication that our track team showed at the final meet. A big congratulations to Tania, Markus, Stephen, Srikrishna, Jeffrey, Eva, Jeffery, Anita, Bonnie, and Alice for their amazing work!! When Mr. Chu coaches other track teams in the future, I will certainly remind them of how amazing you all were!! 🙂

Our class novel is coming to a close this week, so students are also reminded that their Bloom’s Taxonomy ball will be due soon (likely a week from tomorrow)!

In math, we played a review game on solving two-step equations using mental math and algebraic methods. A new problem journal (the final one!) has also been assigned to sum up the skills that they have learned. An algebra quiz will be occurring in the coming week!

In social studies, students were working on creating a proper outline for the big issues speech that they are working on. Starting tomorrow, we will be looking at the outline and starting the process of forming an effective speech.

In physical and health education, we started our tennis lessons from our guest instructor, Marcus, who is AMAZING!! Students seemed to really enjoy their first session, and I can’t wait to see them brush up their skills in the game! 15-love, everyone!

In Core French, Mr. Wong is beginning to wrap up his projects. Students are reminded to check on Microsoft Teams for due dates!

In ADST, Mr. Chu has officially started the final ADST project – including cooking, video-editing, and photo-taking with the MACC’sterChef challenge! Students are going to be working on creating dishes to compete for the title of MACC’sterChef using the “plot-twists” in their mystery boxes. Ask your children about this! I’m certain it will be a lot of fun! 🙂

Coming Up at CapHill (May 30th to June 3rd)

Hello families!

Since I missed a week of updates, this post will have a little more information.

In other Capitol Hill news, Hornet Week was a HUGE success!! I want to take this time to say how proud I am of Division 7 for the amount of school spirit they had for it – really rocking the spirit days and trying their very best for the physical activity stations. And yes… it is true… BLUE TEAM WON!!! YAY US!

Our latest “Homework” board looks like this:

  • Language Arts
    Bloom’s Taxonomy Book Review Ball (Ongoing, due upon end of class novel)
    ** Please note: There are only about 2 read aloud sessions left, which means that the assignment is likely due in a week’s time from now!**
    Short Story Conclusion Draft (Thurs, Jun 2)
  • Math
    Solving Two-Step Equations (Tues, May 31)
  • Social Studies
    List of Events for “Big Issues” Speech (Tues, May 31)
  • ADST
    Short Story Book Cover (Thurs, Jun 2)

In language arts, students should have completed their short story climax and falling action. Students are beginning to wrap up their stories this week, so that the stories can be proofread and edited to share with larger audiences during the week of June 6th and 13th.

In math, we began looking into algebra and how to solve for variables/unknown values – using one-step solving processes as well as two-step solving processes. This includes solving for equations such as 2x-5=17.

In social studies, students read a little bit about what is happening in the United States with the tragic shootings occurring there. The students are learning about gun violence, government interventions, as well as understanding motives behind these devastating events. This allowed us to begin thinking about the many big issues that have affected our society.

In the weeks to come, students will be writing speeches to explain what is the biggest issue that needs to be addressed immediately. They are encouraged to think about the many topics we have discussed, and of course, are always welcome to bring up any issues that spark some sort of tensions to their minds. To plan for this, students were given a planning sheet to highlight and jot down some key events that are startling or impactful to them. Once they have a list of events, they can then start grouping them to see if a common theme emerges from their events as the main topic they would like to discuss.

In physical and health education, students did some research to explore myths that exist in common culture around certain diets and foods. They have created some presentations on the truth behind what media/society is trying to tell us!

In arts education, students began learning about dramatic arts with the Young Actors’ Project! Students seemed to have a lot of fun and really enjoyed working with our guest presenters. It was definitely a nice, fun exhale from their workload. Yay!

Please note the following dates or events this coming week and the near future.

Monday, May 30th

  • Canoeing @ Deer Lake (Day 1 of 3)

Thursday, June 2nd

  • Grades 4/5 Track Meet
    @ Burnaby North (3:00pm to 5:30pm)
  • Tennis Lessons begin!

Upcoming Dates

  • June 6th: Pro-D Day – No School

Coming Up at CapHill (May 16th to 20th)

Hello families!

I hope you all are having a restful weekend. As we have entered mid-May, it is about time that some fun year-end activities start moving along.

Please be reminded that Hornet Week is next week – a week where students get to do some community building activities, develop comradery while fostering team spirit, and participate in group physical activities. Division 7 is on Blue Team (if you have forgotten…), so on that note… GOOOOOO BLUE TEAM!

Please also be reminded that the Young Actors Program will begin next week and that forms + payment are due on the 17th. Students are assessed during this time, as performing arts falls under our curriculum in the Arts Education realm. Thank you.

Our latest “Homework” board looks like this:

  • Language Arts
    Bloom’s Taxonomy Book Review Ball (Ongoing, due upon end of class novel)
    Short Story Introduction and Rising Action Draft (Wed, May 18)
    “The Sniper” Questions on MS Teams (Tues, May 17)
  • Core French
    Finish Fashion Catalogue (Mon, May 16)

In language arts, students worked on providing and receiving feedback for their short story pitches that they are creating and are now tasked with writing the introduction and rising action of their story. The final story should be anywhere from 2,000 words to 10,000 words. Students were also given a new short story to read titled “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson. Feel free to ask them what it was about! For critical thinking skills, students have also been given questions on MS Teams to answer on “The Sniper” just to keep their brains moving.

In math, students worked on some applications of order of operations with fractions and submitted their problem journals. Students are now moving on to algebra for their next unit of study. We had a brief introduction to the preservation of equality and explained some basic algebra vocabulary. We will be going deeper into it next week to understand how to solve equations shortly.

In physical and health education, we looked into advertisements of food to understand some of the myths and misconceptions of some of the foods we eat to better understand what we as consumers need to pay attention to with regards to nutrition and the things that we eat.

We also had a fun time at bowling as well! The walk up Holdom Avenue though, I must say, continues to be a big workout for all of us.

Coming Up at CapHill (May 9th to 13th)

Hello families!

First, I’d like to take the time to wish all the mothers in our community a Happy Mothers’ Day. I hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far.

On Wednesday, student-led conference booklets went home for students to complete with their family members to demonstrate some of their learning and how they are able to apply their learning in different contexts. Please be reminded that these booklets are to be returned on Monday, May 9th. Thank you for your cooperation!

Our latest “Homework” board looks like this:

  • Language Arts
    Bloom’s Taxonomy Book Review Ball (Ongoing, due upon end of class novel)
    Short Story Pitch (Tues, May 10)
  • Math
    Problem Journal #5 (Thurs, May 12)
  • Core French
    Fashion Catalogue (Wed, May 11)
    **See MS Teams for more information
  • Other
    Student-Led Conferences Booklets (Mon, May 9)

In language arts, students were introduced to a variety of short stories in preparation as they begin to write their own to finish off the school year. We have explored some elements of story (plot, theme, character development, conflict, setting, and point of view) and students are to think of an overall brainstorm and general structure to present as a book pitch to our class for next week, so that we have a broad idea of what each other’s stories are about, but to also have the opportunity to provide suggestions and critique as students write their story. The pitch is not to exceed 3 minutes. Remember, the pitch is just a guideline and ideas can change over time.

Some students have already started writing their stories (and yes… they can work in partners if they like!), which is great! They are reminded to still do this pitch and prepare to make LOTS of changes as we learn more about effective story-writing, especially after going on a gallery walk to see some of the writing samples shared by our neighbours down the hall in Division 6.

In math, students worked on dividing fractions (and understanding the meaning of dividing fractions) as well as order of operations with fractions – combining and reviewing their skills with fractions in all areas – emphasizing how to show work, and how to simplify fractions. A quiz on multiplying and dividing fractions was on Friday. Students also had a rich task to complete with fractions in a problem journal.

Update: During class meeting on Thursday, we had a long and serious talk about behaviour. There have been increasing social problems between classmates outside of the class and issues were addressed. Students were also reminded about maintain positive school-appropriate behaviour, even as the “end-of-year jitters” start to kick in. This is so that our experience can continue and end on a high note. My main message to the students this week was that… the experience is only good and fun if you choose to make it good and fun – the choices you make for how you interact with others and how you approach situations make the difference; it is not the events that dictate how much fun you will have.

Please note the following dates or events this coming week and the near future.

Thursday, May 12th

  • Grades 4-7 Track Practice
    3:00pm to 4:00pm

Friday, May 13th

  • Bowling with Div. 1, 4, & 6

Upcoming Dates

  • May 16th to 20th: Hornet Week!
  • May 23rd: Victoria Day – No School

Coming Up at CapHill (May 2nd to 6th)

Hello families!

I hope you are all enjoying your start to the beautiful weekend! Can you believe it is already May?! Less than 10 weeks of school left.

Next week, please be reminded that there will be an early dismissal at 1:45pm on Wednesday, May 4th for Student-Led Conferences. In preparation for this, students will be given a task booklet to take home, so that they can guide and lead their families through to show some of the skills and knowledge that they have been building on.

In other news, bowling on Friday was a great success and the students seemed to have a lot of fun with their peers and interacting with students in other classes. Word on the street is that many people scored multiple strikes (with the bumpers up 😛 )! I hope that they enjoyed their time.

Our latest “Homework” board looks like this:

  • Language Arts
    Bloom’s Taxonomy Book Review Ball (Ongoing, due upon end of class novel)
  • Core French
    Fashion Outfit Sheet (Wed, May 4)

In math, students had a bit of an exhale, but we were still able to cover how to multiply fractions using a visual understanding (area model) as well as with an algorithmic method – ask your child for the golden 6 words when multiplying fractions together… we’ve only chanted it about 10 times! Haha 😛

In science, we continued to learn more about the effects and evidence of climate change with information gathered and presented by NASA. With this information, we are beginning to learn more about the impact that human activity has had on the environment, but more importantly, we are starting to infer and predict trends – along with their respective consequences, should they continue farther without any intervention or mitigation.

In physical and health education, students worked on some badminton skills once again for the final weeks that we have the nets up for, played a new multi-skill group game with Mr. Martin, and engaged in some good ol’ fun with bowling on Friday! The walk up Holdom Avenue really tired them out though! In other news, I am being mindful of conversations and curiosities of students around the topic of puberty, and have continued on discussions this week to hopefully help students develop greater maturity around the issue.

In Core French, Mr. Wong led students through a new activity related to a “fashion catalogue” and students will be working on consolidating their knowledge of simple adjectives (which we have learned) and utilizing it for a specific context. I was also impressed with some of the recordings that I heard on Flipgrid of students practicing their oral French. Well done!

Please note the following dates or events this coming week and the near future.

Wednesday, May 4th

  • Celebration of Learning – Early Dismissal at 1:45pm

Thursday, May 5th

Hello families!

I hope you are all enjoying your extra day to the weekend on this Pro-D Day. My apologies for the late post this weekend.

Please be reminded that our school photography studio will be at school on Thursday, April 28th to take each class’ whole class photo. It is scheduled to be outside at the moment, dependent on the weather. Please remember that masks for this photo are optional, as per provincial health protocols in schools.

Our latest “Homework” board looks like this:

  • Language Arts
    Bloom’s Taxonomy Book Review Ball (Ongoing, due upon end of class novel)
  • Core French
    Self-Introduction (Wed, Apr 27)

In math, students have learned how to take their understanding of adding and subtracting fractions and apply them to manipulating mixed numbers as well. Lots of students already came with a variety of strategies and in class, we primarily worked on converting between mixed numbers and fractions to solve for such problems. It was really cool seeing how rich students’ understanding is when it comes to fraction operations and number sense with fractions.

In science, we will begin talking about environment. On Friday, it was Earth Day! Unfortunately, Mr. Chu was unable to lead the activities planned on environment on earth and space, so he will be starting that up next week. On Friday, students were able to still conduct some research and discover some findings on climate change and its evidence around the world.

In physical and health education, we are continuing badminton and have once again continued the fun topic of puberty, as students are starting to indicate that they would like to learn a little more about it, as they are now noticing more of their peers discussing and questioning changes that they see in their bodies.

In Core French, Mr. Wong has been helping with troubleshooting for recording using Flipgrid. Please note that Mr. Chu also has access to these and have noticed that many students have not yet submitted their holidays or self-introduction recordings for grading. If you haven’t already submitted it, please do so at your earliest convenience, as no submission will be reflected in your final mark.

Please note the following dates or events this coming week and the near future.

Monday, April 25th

Hello families!

I hope you are all enjoying a restful, extra long weekend so far. For those of you who observe Easter, I wish you all a happy Easter and hope that you all get to enjoy some family time together – with Easter egg hunts and all!

My apologies for the late update and for missing one last week. This week will be a double-post with information missed from last week.

Please also be reminded that school will be closed on Monday, April 18th. We will see each other again on Tuesday, April 19th.

Our latest “Homework” board looks like this:

  • Language Arts
    Bloom’s Taxonomy Book Review Ball (Ongoing, due upon end of class novel)
  • Social Studies
    Learning About Refugees (Tues, Apr 19)
    Refugee vs. Immigrant (Tues, Apr 19)
  • Core French
    12 French Holidays for 2023 (Wed, Apr 20)
  • Art
    Collage Background (Wed, Apr 20)
  • Music
    Recording for “Moana” production (Tues, Apr 19)
    ** Wear blue shirts and try to avoid logos and patterns! **

In language arts, students were introduced to a learning framework called Bloom’s Taxonomy of Learning – a framework that recognizes the different levels and complexities of learning deeply composed of 3 neural domains: cognitive, affective, and psychomotor across 6 stages: creating, evaluating, analyzing, applying, understanding, and remembering. To demonstrate learning around our class novel, Refugee by Alan Gratz, students have a series of questions to address artistically using what is called a “Bloom Ball.” This will serve as their book report for this novel. Ask your child about it to learn about the book with us! 😀

In math, students have learned how to visualize, represent, and solve fraction problems involving proper fractions, improper fractions, and mixed numbers. Students began reviewing vocabulary of concepts related to fractions and practiced using only visual knowledge instead of calculations to understand how fractions work and how to convert, make equivalent fractions, and simplify.

Soon after, students worked on adding and subtracting proper and improper fractions with both like and unlike denominators. Next week, we will throwing in some mixed numbers into the mix of our learning of introductory fraction operations and hopefully begin to multiply and divide with fractions soon!

In social studies, we are learning about refugees given what is going on in the world and how it relates so closely with our class novel. Students were put into research task groups to find information on countries with high populations of people seeking refuge in other countries, specifically: Syria, Afghanistan, Myanmar, Venezuela, and South Sudan. Students shared out last week and are now working on understanding what the information that they have found actually mean, why this information is significant, and how it affects the world at large.

We also took some time to discuss what are the similarities and differences between refugees and immigrants and think about the 5Ws and how they may differ between the two. Lots of great ideas were brought up during our discussion and the Venn Diagram analysis will be due on Tuesday.

In ADST, students worked on analyzing and creating their own infographics to help synthesize information. Their task was to use an online media design platform to create unique infographics that draw attention to things that people should pay attention to and be aware of in relation to the topic of social media.

In physical and health education, we began playing badminton for our spring/summer season sport. We are working a lot on coordination, balance, control, and strategy for badminton. Mini competitions have been held (both singles and doubles) and Mr. Chu looks forward to competing against some students and simply practicing with them during gym glass and whenever the gym is open for use during recess and lunch. Rumour has it that Mr. Chu was on the badminton team in high school once upon a time!

In Core French, Mr. Wong (Division 4 teacher, Grade 6/7) has been teaching French weekly while Mr. Chu teaches Division 4 art. Mr. Wong has been getting students to practice and be familiar with some online platforms to help with practicing oral French speaking including “FlipGrid.” Please ensure your child knows how to use these platforms and ask them what they have been practicing regularly! Currently, Mr. Wong is reviewing some vocabulary we have learned previously and will have some new things planned for weeks to come! Stay tuned!

Please note the following dates or events this coming week and the near future.

Coming Up at CapHill (April 4th to 8th)

Hello families!

It was great to see the students back to work again and all safe, happy, and healthy. I hope that students have started to settle back into our routines as we begin our final stretch for the school year.

Our latest “Homework” board looks like this:

  • ADST/Career Education
    Social Media Infographic (Thurs, Apr 14)

In math, students completed a previous Burnaby School District’s math challenge called the “Abel Contest” for students in Grades 4 and 5. In this math contest, students take some of their learning from up to Grades 4 and 5 and are required to extend their level of understanding on it by solving word problems. Some concepts are “new.” I say “new” in the sense that it may not have been formally taught yet, but with the understanding of patterns and the ability to think deeper about math around them, students may still have a good understanding of these concepts.

Mr. Chu has used this to determine what kind of areas the class as a whole may need to work on moving forward and have also assessed students on their abilities to explain mathematical thinking to their peers using a “expert group” method. Students were placed into random groups and were assigned 5 questions to analyze and explain the process for. Afterwards, students rotated around the room to hear the explanation of other questions from other groups. Finally, students finished this activity off by explaining their thinking and process to the class, so that all students can develop a better understanding of how to approach such questions. Students are HIGHLY encouraged to always be listening out for explanations, as it can only help improve their abilities.

In career education, students engaged in some games, activities, and discussions on social media. As students are now surrounded by the stimuli of social media, it will be important that students understand the benefits and negative consequences that the usage of social media and technology can have, so that they are better able to control their online habits and recognize the purposes and intentions that people may have when sharing information on social media platforms. Students are also diving a bit deeper with an infographic creation project. They are to find a topic/issue with social media and utilize their research and design skills to create an infographic to share out information for others to synthesize and develop conclusions for.

In physical and health education, we started our discussions and learning around puberty – explaining some key concepts of how bodies change through adolescence and the teenage years. As we continue to unpack learning around puberty, we will also go over key concepts such as sleep, nutrition, hygiene, stress, and body changes/development.

In art, students got to have some fun with tempera paint, watercolour paint and pastels to create large sheets of uniquely designed paper to be collectively used for a mixed media collage art project. Stay tuned for more!
