Hi 7-3 and 7-4,
Can you believe it's our last week of school? I'm really proud of how you have risen to remote learning for this last part of the school year. It's a very unusual year, and a strange way to end Grade 7, but I've seen some excellent thinking and growth in understanding while working online. Way to go!!
Your report cards will be available online this Wednesday afternoon (June 24th). If you have any comments or concerns, please email me this Thursday or Friday to discuss them.
There is a folder on our Google Classroom that has some math activities for this final week if you are looking for some math ideas!
I'd like to wish all of you and your families a wonderful summer! Stay healthy, stay safe, and I'll see you in September, whether in person or online!
It's that last week of school and we want to thank you for all the amazing work you guys have done during such times.
Wednesday June 24th by the afternoon you should have access to your online report cards.
Check out the Science games folder for some erosion and weathering games and check out the Math last week of school folder for a circle fever activity.
Hello 7-3 and 7-4!
For Monday's meet we will do a combined meet with Ms. Wattamaniuk as we will be playing a game. The meet will be at 1:00 pm and the code is wattamaniuk.
Please remember to keep checking for fun activities as we wrap up our last week of school. Report cards should be available online on Wednesday, June 24th. Teachers will be closing and archiving our online classrooms by the end of next week as well.
"See you" Monday!
Hello 7-3 and 7-4!
Hope all of you are doing well and that you didn't experience TOO much damage from this weekend's storm. I saw some photos and videos and heard some stories at our Google Meet; it seems that some areas of northeast Calgary got hit harder than others. I'm thinking of you and your families and wish you all my very best thoughts.
We have finished our math units for the year but will continue to post some fun activities and review for this week and next. Make sure you check out the folder that says "last week of school activities" on our Google Classroom page!

Hi Everyone in 7-3 and 7-4!
Things are evolving and we are learning how to teach online. Some modifications I have made this week is to our Google Meet times. Our meet times are not mandatory and they are meant to be for you to come and ask questions regarding math. Instead of two-hour blocks of time, we are going to work with this new schedule. If it works out well we will continue it. Also, I will be posting math tasks on Mondays so you have time throughout the week to work on it at your own pace. While the practice work does not need to be submitted, anything that is in a Google Form format must be submitted so I can review it and post your mark in PowerSchool. You will not see grades in Google Classroom.
Google Meet times:
Wed April 8 1:00-1:30 pm
Thursday April 9 9:30 a.m. - 10:00 am
Class code MS7
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
With these current extraordinary times, French is on hold. I'll be teaching grade 7 math until further notice; I miss all of you, but am excited to be joining the grade 7 math team!
Enjoy your time with your families,
Bonjour tout le monde!
Welcome back from spring break! I'm hoping and trusting that all of you are safe and staying safe. I didn't go to France this past week but the trip has been rebooked to October. It makes sense to stay put and not take any chances.
For this week, French and music are on hold. Stay tuned for updates! Duolingo is a great website for those wanting to continue working at their individual levels; this applies to all students from grades 6 through 9.
Know that you are missed and that we are all thinking of you and your families! We'll see you as soon as we can!
At this time we thank you for your patience as we wait to hear about expectations and timelines. I thank you for your understanding as we are planning and getting organized and sorted. As soon as we know more, I will be in touch.
Grade 6: Remember that you have a quiz about food tomorrow. You need to know your food groups, fruit salad ideas, hamburger or pizza ideas, what vegetables you like or don't like, and expressions (meals, "Yum! Yum!" "Have a good meal!", etc.)
Grade 7: Quiz next Tuesday (March 17) on school-related vocabulary; your dream schools are due by the end of the week.
Grade 8: Quiz on -er verbs and l'impératif - 8-6 quiz is on Wednesday and 8-7 quiz is on Thursday.
Grade 9: Carnaval work continues!
À plus! À bientôt!
I'd like to welcome back my student teacher, Mademoiselle Joanna McCarthy, who returned just yesterday. She is in her final practicum (student teaching round) and will be here until April 17, at which time she will be a fully qualified teacher!
Grade 6: Your "salade aux fruits" is due on Monday. Please have at least five fruits in your lovely concoction!
Grade 7: You have a work period tomorrow to complete your schedule in French. It's due Monday. If you have not already handed in your "sac à dos" assignment, it also should be in on Monday. Your model sentence is "Je mets _________________ dans mon sac à dos." Try to make me laugh!
Grade 8: Please make sure your culture package is complete and handed in, including all citations.
Grade 9: Bonne chance at your festival tomorrow for those who are participating! All community booklets should be fully complete by Thursday of next week.
Bonne année, tout le monde! Happy 2020!
Next week is the final week of French classes for 6-4, 7-7, and 7-9. They will all be starting band on January 27, and I will miss my lovely students tremendously!
Grade 6 students are finishing their studies on "notre province de l'Alberta"; we are looking at towns, cities, geography, animals, and natural resources here in Alberta.
Grade 7: Students in 7-7 have voted to have a potluck celebration this coming Monday and students in 7-9 voted to have their potluck next Wednesday, January 22nd. They are to bring something to share with the class; there is no sign-up, so what comes in is what we'll have! Students who are unable to bring something will be on cleanup crew. All grade 7 students should have now shared their final project (a French video weather report) - we have seen some wonderful, creative ideas shared on the SmartBoard!
Grade 8 students have shared their zoo projects and we are now continuing our studies on ethnic cuisine.
Grade 9 students have now finished sharing their dream home projects and our studies on "la communauté" are in full swing.
Grade 9 students should have their dream homes completed (labelled and visuals) by the end of the week. Their oral presentations will take place during the first week back at school in January.
Wishing you all a very safe and happy holiday break! Joyeux Noël et Bonne Année!
For some reason the link we were trying to use for Activity Day sign-up isn't working. Please replace the link with: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/swl-activity-day-2020-tickets-84262299807.
Today is Mme McCarthy's last day here in her first round of student teaching. She will be returning to work with French students on February 24 and will be with us until the end of April. We all wish her lots of learning and success in her final university classes in January and February!
Grade 6: Students are winding up their unit on community next week and will be studying the geography of Alberta in January.
Grade 7: Students are winding up their unit on "moi et les personnes autour de moi" next week. They will have weather report videos due during the second week back in January.
Grade 8: Students are presenting their (beautiful!) zoo projects and are starting their unit on ethnic cuisine.
Grade 9: The labelling and visuals of their dream home projects are due next week (10 fabulous ideas for a 2, 15 for a 3, and 20 for a 4) . Oral presentations will be due the first class back in January! Students will have to present five of their ideas (with visuals).
