Math - we had our unit 1 test today. Students have had lots of review and completed a practice test yesterday.  We will be starting our new unit in Patterning on Monday.

Language Arts - students are working on expressing his/her opinion on topics relevant to their age group.  They have written a rant they will be recording at school next week.  Please ask your son/daughter to read it to you and practice saying them out loud this weekend, as it will be an oral communication mark.  We watched a few Rick Mercer rants in class to get an idea of how they should sound.  Students were also introduced to their summative writing task, they will be writing his/her opinion on:

Grade 7 - who/what they think had the greatest influence on the creation of New France.

Grade 8 - which reason they think was the most effective in unifying Canada.

History - we are finishing our first unit in History. Grade 7's have been working on our unit on New France and all the people/situations involved in its creation.  Grade 8's have been working on Confederation and all the reasons for the creation of the Dominion of Canada.  We will be looking at a unit test on Monday October 6th.  I will go over with students what they need to study and give them a cue card they can use on the test.

Students will also be working on their summative task, their opinion piece I explained above in Language Arts.

Phys Ed - we have phys ed 3 times a week.  I encourage all students to bring a change of clothes and shoes to participate, as we do tend to get sweaty and stinky! Students are working through their first fitness tests. Next weekm students will be asked to set some personal fitness goals that they would like to work towards for the end of the year. At the same time we are working on a unit on Flag football.
