Pancake Day

Good evening Parents and Students

Today was Pancake day and our Literature time was taken up enjoying pancakes. (Pictures to follow).

Today in Mathematics, I gave the students an extra period to finish up their Math Summative. Tomorrow we are starting a new unit. Those students who were finished worked on their UOI, if that was not completed.

We had Reading Buddies today as well during our UOI time. The students really enjoy reading with the younger students.

In UOI today we had a lesson on "Canadian Citizenship" and took the Canadian Citizenship Quiz. Several of the students found the Quiz challenging. Then we watched a couple of videos on what it means to be a Canadian Citizen to different people.

Language:
Spelling List #25 and Workbook Exercises
Read Chapters 11 of our Novel

Math: 
Math Summative Good Copy was due today at the end of the day. Some students are not quite finished and although they stayed in at recess, they did not finish. I gave them permission to bring it home as long as their Rough Copy was complete and initialed by me. Just a reminder that this is to be independent work only. 

A complete Math Summative, includes the Rubric, their Good Copy Mosaic which is fully coloured and their written component either typed or written neatly. All of these items are to be submitted tomorrow morning at the latest.

UOI:
1. 2 Sentences on what it means to be a Canadian Citizen due for class tomorrow (Thursday April 19th)

2. "Take a Stand" Good Copy Letters are due tomorrow (Wednesday April 18) by day end. I am expecting their Graphic Organizer, their Peer Editing Sheet, their Rubric with the Self Assessment filled out, and their Rough Copy to be attached. If they are emailing their Good Copy, then I expect the rest of the papers to be turned in separately, but still tomorrow.

Reminders:

For Arts Night: We are asking that each student bring in a recent and childhood picture. Please send in all pictures no later than April 20th. Thank you in advance!

Please send in the last page of your report card with your comments and signature. Thank you very much!

Pirate Day

Hello Parents and Students

Daily Activities:

In Language Arts today, we had our Literature Circles. Then the rest of the time was used for Mathematics. Mme Stella was absent today, so French class was also used for Math Summative

During Mathematics, I held conferences with every student to see where they were at with their Math Summative. Some of them needed to rethink their designs and adjust as they were missing pieces from the assignment. Everyone should be on track now. Tomorrow, will be our last class on the Summative. If students are not finished by day end then they will need to use their recess times to complete it.

In UOI today, the quiz was handed back. Please sign and return the quiz as soon as possible. The rest of the time was spent working on their "Take A Stand" Letters. Several students have their Rough Copies completed and have done their Peer Edit. They just need to type or write up their Good Copy which is due tomorrow (Wednesday April 18)

Homework:

Language:

Fundraiser Friday

Good evening Parents and Students

As I tallied up our fundraiser totals, I was thrilled to find so many students participating in our Spring Fundraiser next week. For more information and important dates please see below our daily activities and homework.

Daily Activities:

In Mathematics today, the students completed their quiz on Transformational Geometry. The paperwork for the Summative Assignment was handed out and explained. 

Here are some helpful tutorials that may provide students with some ideas:

In Literature today, the students completed their Spelling Test which was a review of Lessons 19-24 and handed in their Spelling Workbook. I also marked and returned their first Literature Circle Assignment.

In our Unit of Inquiry today, the students continued working on their "Take A Stand" Assignment. Ms. Walls and I have agreed that for those students wiling to put in a lot of effort to produce high quality work, and are willing to put in extra time (such as recess) to make their letter more formal, then we are willing to mail their letters to the appropriate municipal, provincial or federal government members.

Homework:

Language:
Literature Circle homework. We are on Week 2 covering Chapters 4-8 in Shannen and the Dream for a School. Some students also need to complete last week's Literature Circle homework as well. Please ensure that students are reading the instructions on the page when completing their roles.

Math: 
There is no homework in Mathematics, as we are working on the Summative Assignment. If any students brought home their rough copy, they are not to work on it please. If they have already done so, it needs to be independent work or the student will have to begin again. I must initial their rough copy before they can start the next section.

UOI:
Research for the "Take A Stand" Assignment. Students need to determine which government department would be responsible for their social issue, so that their persuasive letter can be addressed properly. They also need evidence to defend their reasons for why their social issue needs to be supported. Again, I need to initial their graphic organizer before their can begin their rough copy of their letter.

Reminders:

SPRING FUNDRAISER!!!!! Our annual Spring Fundraiser starts next week. This year our Spring Fundraiser will run from Monday, April 16 to Friday, April 20. All of the funds raised this year will go towards improving technology for our classrooms.

Today, was a good day. I sat in on music class to see how the students are doing with their songs. They are doing much better. Mr. Oliver will be sending along the music and the words for me to post on the blog for everyone.

Math class was extended this morning as we went over the Transformations page that I had handed out. There were a lot of questions about the Math, but I went through the problem ones on the board. It helped out a lot of students. Ms. Walls did an extra Math lesson at Recess time to provide extra practice for those students who felt they needed it.

In UOI I gave the students time to study their notes before the quiz. After the quiz the students used the time to research their social issue and then get them approved.

Rocking Wednesday!

Today, in Math class we took up the answers to our Transformational Geometry Quiz Review and I handed back the JumpMath page on Similar Figures. We took up both pages in class today and several questions were demonstrated on the whiteboard. To help the students be better prepared, I gave them an additional worksheet on Transformations that is due tomorrow (Thursday April 12th).

We had some time before our trip and I choose to hand out the "Take A Stand" Assignments. We went over the assignment and several students had their topic approved. Any student with an approved topic may start researching.

Our class had the opportunity to sit in on a Careers Presentation from the St. Jude's Academy Student Council. We listened to several different career areas presented by some very informative speakers. We heard about STEM, Money & Finance, Health Sciences and Legal & Government career paths. This presentation was held during Language Arts and French classes. 

In the afternoon, we went rock climbing or "bouldering" at the Cave. The students listened intently to their instructors as they learned how to climb properly and how to fall safely. Then they had many opportunities to try their hand at climbing. It was a great afternoon! 



All other pictures are up to date now if you want to scroll back to check out some of our activities.

Schedule Change: Day 6 instead of Day 1
Tentative Date planned for UOI Quiz on Canadian Government

As you may be aware, there was a tragic accident that occurred in Saskatchewan on Friday evening.

Here at St. Jude’s Academy, we strive to have students apply the learner profile attributes and attitudes not only through their studies at school, but in their community. St. Jude’s would like to show our support for the victims and their families by sending our students to school on Thursday, April 12th, wearing their favourite sports jersey to honour the Humboldt Broncos. The school will be holding a short assembly and a moment of silence on Thursday morning for Grades 3-12 to honour these players, coaches, and families.

Reading Buddies & Review Tuesday

Hello Everybody,

Mathematics:
Today, all the pages for the Transformational Geometry Unit that I have corrected were returned to the students and we worked on the Math Review to ensure the students are well prepared for their Quiz tentatively planned for Friday April 13th, 2018

Next, we are beginning our Math Summative, which will involve a Tessellation or Tiling Pattern. On Thursday, we will go over the Tiling Pattern sheets and introduce the Summative Assignment. If you child wants to get some more information on tessellations to help them out, this YouTube Video would be very useful:

UOI:
Yesterday, we discussed different social issues in Canada and brainstormed a list of them on the board. The students need to select a social issue that they are passionate about to prepare them for their next assignment called "Take a Stand!".  This assignment will be discussed in more depth tomorrow morning and the students will receive their requirements and rubric.

Today, I handed back the papers on "Who you gonna call?" and we took up the answers in class. This page plus the Canadian Government Package (Maps of Canada) are the study pages for their Quiz tentatively planned for Thursday April 12th, 2018. The second half of UOI was dedicated to writing the OWA pre-assessment.
