Song For Courage – Courage Drum Song Lyrics

The Song for Courage was written by Cree-Dene artist from Little Red River Cree Nation, Sherryl Sewepagaham, to honour our grade 7 students transitioning into a bigger world.  We are bringing this song out now to offer strength and courage to all youth in Burnaby as they face moments of transition throughout their learning journey.  Artist’s biography: https://nac-cna.ca/en/bio/sherryl-sewepagaham


#1 Reading:

  • Raz-Kids will be available until July 6th so keep reading!
  • Have you registered for the BC Summer Reading Club yet?  The summer reading program usually available through the public library will be online this summer.  Please go to this link, BC Summer Reading Club website , to sign up and learn more about the program.  It has already started, so let’s go!
  • Burnaby Public Library – Log on to the Burnaby Public Library catalog!  You can choose some books to read over the summer, then reserve the books and do a paper bag pick up! Keep reading all summer long!

#2. Math: Please upload at least 3 math sheets from this week onto Teams

  • Grade 2’s: Today you will use a pictograph to read information. A pictograph is a graph which uses pictures to represent a number. Notice that on both worksheets today the picture represents 4 people. If you use half a picture it represents 2 people. Use the graph to answer the questions.    Worksheet 1    Worksheet 2
  • Grade 3’s: When using fractions, the bottom number (the denominator) represents the total number of pieces. It a circle is broken into 4 equal parts, the denominator would be a 4. The top number on a fraction represents the shaded or unshaded part of an object. If a circle has three parts shaded and 4 parts altogether, we would use the fraction 3/4 to represent what parts of the circle is shaded. We would then use the fraction 1/4 to represent the part that is not shaded. Watch this video and complete your assignment.   Worksheets 1, 2 & 3  If you would like to do some extra work on fractions over the summer, here are some additional sheets you can work on at your leisure.

#3. P.E.: Try one of more of these workout videos.

#3: Art:  Art for Kids Hub – Today I’ve chosen the theme, characters!  I can’t wait to see what you choose to draw! Remember to email it to me, Mrs. Leroux, so that I can add it to our gallery!

Have a wonderful and safe summer everyone!

Good morning class! Here are your morning announcements brought to you by Division 9!


#1. Reading: 

  • RazKids: read 1-2 stories and complete the questions
  • MySciLearn: read a story
  • Epic Books: read for enjoyment after you have completed the rest of your work

#2. Writing: Today is the second to last day of school, what are you planning to do this summer? Listen to the story And Then Comes Summer by Tom Brenner. While you are listening to the story, think about the fun things you would like to do this summer. Using this sheet, make a list of all the things you plan to do this summer. Then, write a short paragraph about what you plan to do this summer. Writing Sheet Please upload your work to Teams. Here is my writing: 

   

#3. Math: 

  • Grade 2’s: Your assignment today is to use the information from the tallies to answer questions. On the second sheet, you will use the information in the tallies to create a bar graph.      Worksheets 1 & 2
  • Grade 3’s: Fractions read with one number on top (called the numerator) and  one number on the bottom (the denominator). The number on top shows how many parts you are going to use. The bottom number shows how many pieces there are in total. We read the top number as normal and read the bottom number as halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, and so on. Please watch this video (you can skip to 1 minute and 50 seconds into the video) to understand this concept further.    Worksheets 1,2 &3

#4. P.E.: Choose for the list:

  1. Kids Workout
  2. Go Noodle
  3. Cosmic Kids Yoga – Trolls
  4. Despicable Me and Minions Workout

Monday, June 22nd

Good morning Division 8! We are down to our last 3 days of online learning for this school year!

On Wednesday at 1:00 we will have our last Zoom chat. In it we will be taking a class photo (Zoom style). We hope everyone can “make it” to this meeting!
Here are your morning announcements from Ms. Hall.

To celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day on Sunday, June 21st,  we will be sharing facts and music from the Canadian Indigenous Peoples:

  • The number four is very important to many Indigenous peoples; it relates to the four cycles of life, the four seasons, the four directions, and the four elements.
  • The Sto:lo have the belief that the cedar tree was once a kind and gentle man who always gave to the people.
  • The number of cultures and languages of Indigenous peoples in BC is greater than the cultures and languages in Europe.
  • Embracing it’s members’ Indigenous roots, the group’s hard-to-characterize but innovative music blends hip-hop, dancehall and underground club music with First Nations vocal chanting and drumming. The unique mix has been described as “powwow-step”.  A Tribe Called Red has received multiple Indigenous People’s Choice Music Awards and won best music video at the Native American Music Awards in the US.  In 2014, they won a Juno for Breakthrough Group of the Year and was nominated for Electronic Album of the Year.  Song – Stadium Pow Wow

#1. Reading: 

  • RazKids: read 1-2 stories and complete the questions
  • MySciLearn: read your first story of the week
  • Epic Books: read for enjoyment after you have completed the rest of your work
  • Connect to the library link at the top of the blog and listen to Mrs. Field’s weekly story

#2. Math: 

  • Grade 2’s: In today’s assignment, you will be reading and writing tally marks. We have done a lot of class work with tally marks, so you should be familiar with how to use them. Tally marks are bundles of 5, with 4 sticks vertically and the last one diagonally. When we count tally marks, we could be fives and then count by ones with the left over marks. On the first sheet you will draw the tally marks for each picture. On the second page, you will either write the number beside the tally, or the the tally marks beside the number.  Worksheets 1 &2
  • Grade 3’s: For your work this week, you will be learning about fractions. Factions are pieces of a number or an object. We use them to show parts of a whole. It could be used for a number smaller than 1 or to break items into parts. For example, if I have a chocolate bar that I will share with 3 friends, I will need to break the chocolate bar into 4 equal pieces. If the item is not divided equally, it cannot be make into a fraction. In today’s work, you will count up the equal pieces of each shape. If the pieces are not equal, you will write 0. Please watch this video to understand how fractions show shapes divided equally. Worksheets 1,2 & 3

#3. P.E.: Try  one or more of the following:

#4: Art:  Art for Kids Hub – Today I’ve chosen the theme, toys!   I can’t wait to see what you choose to draw! Remember to email it to me, Mrs. Leroux, so that I can add it to our gallery!

Hello Division 8!

Here are your morning announcements from Division 7!

To celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day on Sunday, June 21st,  we will continue to share facts and music from the Canadian Indigenous Peoples:

  • Elders are very important members of First Nation, Métis, and Inuit communities. The term Elder refers to someone who has attained a high degree of understanding of First Nation, Métis, or Inuit history, traditional teachings, ceremonies, and healing practices.
  • Indigenous cultures pass knowledge from generation to generation through oral traditions.
  • There is not one culture for all Indigenous nations. Each nation has its own culture, customs, beliefs, traditions, and world views.
  • Mob Bounce is a band formed by Craig Frank Edes aka The Northwest Kid (Gitxsan) and Travis Hebert aka EarthChild (Cree/Metis). They grew up in Northern BC and bonded over their love of hip hop. Mob Bounce is Indigenous influenced hip hop with a fuse of EDM (Electronic Dance Music), with traditional and contemporary aspects. Both Travis and Craig’s gripping lyricism delve into spirituality, social awareness/justice, and a connection to Mother Earth.  Song –  Keys to The Forest

#1. Reading: 

  1. RazKids: read 1-2 stories and complete the questions
  2. MySciLearn: finish your second story of the week
  3. Epic Books: read for enjoyment after you have completed the rest of your work

#2. Writing: Hopefully you have been working hard on your Father’s Day Card. Today’s assignment is to complete the written part (Step 3 #1) that will go inside the card. If you have not made a card, you can still complete this sheet to give to your dad. There are two choices of sheets, so pick the one you like best. Insert sheet 1 and Insert sheet 2 . If you would like Mrs. Nicoll and Mrs. Leroux to see your work, you can upload onto Teams, but it is not necessary.

#3. Math: 

  • Grade 2’s: Complete the worksheets on bar graphs. At the bottom of the second page you will see empty lines. You will fill the lines with the same sentences that are at the bottom of the other bar graphs (____ people read _____ books). Worksheets 1 & 2
  • Grade 3’s: For today’s assignment you will be drawing a picture in an array. If you recall, an array has rows and columns of pictures. To make an array for a division sentence is the same as for a multiplication sentence. If the questions says 15 happy faces, 5 in each row. I would draw a row with 5 happy faces, then draw another row with 5 happy faces, and keep going until it added up to 15 happy faces. You would end up with 3 rows. Then at the bottom of the box on the blank line I would write 15 ÷ 5 = 3. On the second sheet, question 3, you will have some leftover beanbags. When we divide and have a leftover, this is called a remainder. To answer, tell how many bean bags are in each group and then write how many are remaining. Worksheets 1 & 2

#4: P.E.: It’s should be another beautiful day to get outside for some exercise! Just like yesterday, go for a neighbourhood walk, a trail walk (Squint Lake or Burnaby Mountain have great ones), a bike ride, skipping, kicking a ball or practicing throwing and catching in a field.

#5: Art:  Art for Kids Hub – Today I’ve chosen the theme, vehicles.  You can choose anything from a hot air balloon to a sports car.  I can’t wait to see what you choose to draw! Remember to email it to me, Mrs. Leroux, so that I can add it to our gallery!

Have a thoughtful Thursday!

Good morning class!

Here are your morning announcements from Division 6

To celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day on Sunday, June 21st,  we will be sharing facts and music from the Canadian Indigenous Peoples:

  • British Columbia alone is home to 60% of Indigenous languages in Canada. In our province there are 34 distinct languages involving 61 dialects.
  • Not all Indigenous peoples do Pow Wows, potlatches, smudges or sweats.
  • There are 634 recognized nations in Canada and 3,100 Reserves. The nation refers to the people and the reserve refers to the land.
  • Buffy Sainte-Maire was born as Beverly Sainte-Marie on Feb. 20, 1941, on the Piapot Cree Indigenous reserve in the Qu’Appelle Valley, Saskatchewan. Sainte-Marie’s fearless social commentary and advocating for Indigenous issues, both in her songs and in her life, have earned her many devoted fans and the respect of her musical peers. Song – You Got To Run (Spirit of the Wind)

Tuesday, June 16th

Good morning class!! Please join Mrs. Nicoll for a Zoom call at 1:00 (see the link in Teams)

Here are your morning announcements from Division 6!

The BC Summer Reading Club is Online!  The summer reading program usually available through the public library will be online this summer.  Please go to this link, BC Summer Reading Club website , to sign up and learn more about the program.  It started yesterday, so let’s go!

To celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day on Sunday, June 21st,  we will be sharing facts and music from the Canadian Indigenous Peoples:

  • Since 1996, National Indigenous Peoples Day has been held on June 21, the summer solstice and the longest day of the year.
  • According to Statistics Canada, there are over 60 Indigenous languages in Canada.
  • In the 2016 census by Statistics Canada, over 1.6 million people in Canada identified as Indigenous, making up 4.9 per cent of the national population
  • The Jerry Cans create music inspired by their hometown of Iqaluit, Nunavut. With their unique mix of indie rock and throat singing, The Jerry Cans are a distinctly northern, one-of-a-kind group. The band perform many of their songs in Inuktitut and are passionate about preserving the language even as the north and their home community of Iqaluit evolve. They are committed to representing northerners and to challenging common misperceptions they have encountered about life in the Arctic; their music evokes the contemporary north and the spirited people that  reside there. Song –   Northern Lights

#1. Reading: 

  • RazKids: read 1-2 stories and complete the questions
  • MySciLearn: complete your first story of the week
  • Epic Books: read for enjoyment after you have completed the rest of your work

#2. Writing: You will write an acrostic poem. If you remember, you wrote an acrostic poem about winter with Mrs. Leroux and they were up on the bulletin board in the hallway. Please watch this video to refresh yourself with what an acrostic poem is. For today’s poem, you will choose to either write your name or the word summer, vertically at the start of each line of the poem. Remember you will need to start each line with the letter you write. Here is the worksheet to write your poem. When you are done, upload your work to Teams Under Acrostic Poem.

#3. Math: Today the grade 2’s will be reading graphs and the grade 3’s will be learning about division. Grade 3’s, we will not get to reading graphs this year, so I encourage you to look at the grade 2’s work and complete the worksheets.

  • Grade 2’s: If you joined Mrs. Nicoll’s Zoom meeting last Wednesday, you should be ready to get right to work. If you missed the meeting, you will need to know that you are learning about vertical bar graphs. We read the information about the graph by looking at the title and the words on the bottom on the graph. The numbers on the side tell us how many people chose the answer. The bar graph will be filled in to show how many people choose the answers. On your worksheet, read the information in the graph and complete the questions.    Worksheets 1 & 2
  • Grade 3’s: Today you will continue to learn about division. Just like we used repeated addition to figure out multiplication questions, we can use repeated addition to solve division questions. On the first sheet, you will begin by adding the numbers up. Let’s look at the first question. It says 4 + 4 + 4 = ___ . We know that equals 12. We will carry that answer over to the division problem where it says ___ ÷ 4 = 3. You will write 12 in the blank. Where it says ____ groups of the number ____, we will count how many groups there are, which is 3. In the blanks you will write there are 3 groups of the number 4. On the second sheet, you will count the picture and fill it in the blank. For the first question there are 12 flowers and the question says there are 4 flowers in each group. Draw a circle around every 4 flowers, then count how many groups you have. The amount of groups you have is the answer, so 12 ÷ 3 = 4  Worksheets 1 & 2 

#4. Father’s Day Card: Finish step 1 #3 , #4 and #5

#5. P.E.: Choose one of the following:

 

Monday, June 15th

Good morning Division 8!! It is our last full week before summer holidays. How exciting!!!

Here are your morning announcements from Ms. Hall!

Last chance for Div. 8 Lost and Found! We still have no claims for the grey and black stretchy gloves and now we are wondering who owns this umbrella with bicycles on it! Let us know!

 

We will have two Zoom meetings this week. One tomorrow at 1:00 (changed from Wednesday due to a staff meeting) and on Friday at 1:00. 

#1. Reading: 

  • RazKids: read 1-2 stories and complete the questions
  • MySciLearn: read your first story of the week
  • Epic Books: read for enjoyment after you have completed the rest of your work
  • Connect to the library link at the top of the blog and listen to Mrs. Field’s weekly story

#2. Math: 

  • Grade 2’s: Today will be the last day of reviewing 2 digit subtraction. In today’s assignment, you will complete the subtraction equation and then check to see if your work is correct. You will check your work by adding the answer (called the difference) and the number you subtracted. For example, if the equation is 60 – 29 = 31, I would check my work by adding 31 + 29. If my answer is right, it will equal 60. If it does not equal 60, I know I did my math wrong and will need to go back a fix it.      Worksheets 1 & 2    
  • Grade 3’s: Today you will begin learning about division. Division is very similar to multiplication, but is written in the opposite way. For example, if 5 x 6 = 30, the division sentence will be 30 ÷ 5 = 6 or 30 ÷ 6 = 5. When we divide, we start with a bigger number and put that number into equal groups. For example, there are 18 kids in our class. If I put you in groups of 3, how many groups will there be? Well, 18 ÷ 3= 6. I know this because 3 x 6 is 18. It is really important to know your multiplication facts when doing division. You could learn by getting flash cards or by studying the multiplication chart that was assigned last week. Listen to this story, The Cookie Fiasco by Dan Santatto to understand why we use division. In this story they wanted to share the cookies equally. In today’s work, you will put the pictures into groups to make equal groups.  Worksheets 1 & 2

#3. Art: Please refer to the post of the top of the blog that says Father’s Day Art and work on step 1 #1 and #2.

#4. Physical Health: Please choose an activity or two to complete 30 minutes of exercise today.

#5. Art: (for fun! optional!)  What will we draw today?  A minion! If you would like to share a drawing with the class, please ask a parent to email me (Mrs. Leroux) your picture and I will put it into the Gallery.  Have a look in the Gallery to see all the drawings that are already there! In fact, if you haven’t looked lately, Mrs. Leroux has learned yet another new tech skill and our gallery looks so much nicer now!!
