What's Your Best Book Ever?

Wednesday is the day to assembly your photo- essay on Bristol board in class. Bring Bristol- board and all supplies. We can print off b&w pics. at school.

Explanation of Project

Our Language Arts classes have been invited to participate in the Spotlight on Indigenous People Project at the upcoming Pow Wow, Mawi’omi, at James M. Hill Friday, Feb. 16. Student projects will be displayed as we celebrate our Indigenous Peoples’ contributions to society.

 Last week, students began a research based literacy project in which they have chosen an Indigenous person who is a positive role model.  This person may also be from student’s family or community.  Students spent three days in the lab researching basic information on this person's life- family, career, and achievements.  They also collected pictures and quotes/articles.   This is a min-project intended to be completed in class.

This photo essay is to be placed on Bristol board. (Balance of pictures and information.) Students have been given the deadline to bring in all their materials for Wednesday, Feb. 14.  Each student also received a project guideline during their research time. Projects will be assembled in class on Wednesday.  Should they need to print off pictures at school, we can do so in black and white. If they want colored photos, borders, background paper, etc. to jazz up the board, students should bring it in.

 

Once completed, we will view and learn from each other’s projects. There will NOT be a presentation to the class. Evaluating each other’s projects will provide a more interactive learning experience.

We are finally wrapping up our memoir unit this Friday.  For the past two weeks, students have been revising their work for  word choice, organization, sentence fluency and ideas.  I hope you finished revising today so we can peer edit tomorrow.  Use my teacher notes on your memoir rubric to guide your revisions. Remember to use all the reference sheets that we used in class.

We have completed our first week of middle school!   I look forward to teaching and learning from such wonderful students. Students have received compostion books that they are probably personalizing this weekend. ( Don't worry if you forgot, you have all month to customize it.) These books are precious because they will contain students' ideas as well as responses to classroom instruction. 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!  Be observant so you can write about your adventures.

Check out  LUMINATE tonight. Amazing science, technology nd engineering science hands on exhibits in our gym from 6-7:30PM.

Grade seven and eight students have been working well revising their Remembrance Day stories.  All drafts are to be passed in tomorrow so I can assess this week's mini-lessons.

Posted: October 26, 2016

Presently students have been exploring the themes of Remembrance Day. They have been reading essays, articles, and poems and listening to songs along the theme of Remembrance.  Most of the work is done in class.  They could be doing more research at home or the public library. Some very informative sites are  www.warmuseum.ca   and   http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/

 Essays by past winners can be read at www.legion.ca/ under the youth heading.

A rough draft should be finished for Friday. At this time, we will begin revisions.  Next week we will have teacher and peer conferences.

Final copy due November 4.

Reading 25 minutes a night has been the expectation as they have been doing responses in class to prove that they were thinking as they were reading! :)
