Tonight, students have some language to finish up as well as math in chapter 12.3 1-8. A number of students need to do a better job with organizing their work- particularly in math. We've emphasized the importance or working through equations from top to bottom, ensuring that each step is mapped out according to each students level of understanding. If students require multiple steps to work through an idea or concept, they should be mapping each step out. Likewise, it helps to draw a picture as another opportunity to understand what the question is asking. Students are encouraged to underline chapters, sub chapters, dates and important information as they work through units. Working on these things helps organize concepts for studying later on and students get a real sense of accomplishment when they know their evaluative marks are partly due to his/ her conscientious efforts.
Just a reminder that magazine and east gary wear orders are now over due. On November 11th, we will be having our Remembrance Day assembly in the gym at 10:00am.
Just a note, yesterday we worked on a website called myblueprint.ca This is a website dedicated to tracking our students professional learning plan from grade 7 all the way through to grade 12. I encourage you to look at the website with your son or daughter and make some long term plans that you can record. This is a great website, each student has their own unique log in and password. Ask them about it!
Thanks! Have a great night!
