Hi Division 7!
It’s Friday afternoon and you have all headed home after another great Sports Day. There were some interesting a new stations this year. Did you have a favourite? It’s always fun to see what the Grade 7’s come up with! Although fun is the first goal of sports day, there is an element of competition too. It was a close battle for first and I have to say, I was very surprised with the outcome: Green made a huge comeback after being in 4th place after the stations. That’s what determination does!! Blue, although leading at first, didn’t take the win… upset by the Red Team . Congratulations Red! Enjoy the moment 🙂
Our time together is coming to a quick end…. only 8 more full days of school before we all get to enjoy a relaxing break from work. But…. there is still more to be done and we didn’t waste any time this past week getting to it. Our biggest task was learning about the muscular, digestive, and respiratory systems in our research teams. All of you read about the system, shared your learning with each other, and then narrowed down all the information to TEN super facts…. that you will be teaching to the class. We brainstormed some different ways to do this and all of you are getting creative with how you will share your knowledge with the rest of us. There are power point presentations being created, skits are being written and acted out. All of you are also creating “Kaboom” questions as a way of quizzing us and making our learning more fun. These presentations will be happening on either Tuesday or Wednesday. 🙂
The other thing we worked on was getting our candy graphing project done. I have those this weekend and will give them back to you for your portfolios.
Another thing to celebrate was the addition of Ayra to our class. Welcome Ayra! You have joined us at a super fun time of the year. I hope you are enjoying Division 7! We are sure enjoying getting to know YOU!
I am going to keep this blog super short because I am heading to our staff party hosted by Mr. Ricker. We call it the “Ricker Q” and it is always a fun time!
So, just a reminder to practice your French “C’est Mon Corps” ( especially the Grade 5’s) because I will be quizzing your oral skills on Monday. Second reminder is that Sunday is Father’s Day. Please take some extra time to recognize your dad , stepdad, grandpa, or uncle with whom you have a special relationship. I hope they like your little token of appreciation.
Here is your question for this weekend: Wednesday will be potato harvesting day. What is a favourite way that you family eats potatoes? Can you describe it? Do you have a recipe that you could share?
Have a wonderful weekend Division 7! See you on Monday!
