Day 1 – Math Review

Grade 6s continued reviewing number patterns in math today in preparation for Monday’s test. Each student had mini conference times with me as we checked over their work. Students who did not complete the review work in the time allocated used recess time and reading time to try get done. Students should complete all review questions if they did not get done in class today. The unit test will take place on Monday, October 23rd.

We continued working on our City of Ember novel study. Students met in their literature circle groups and discussed the ninth chapter using their assigned roles. Once discussions were completed, students were assigned a new literature circle role for the tenth chapter. Students used class time to read Chapter 10. While they read they worked on their role response and also worked on completing their graphic organiser. Students who did not complete this in class are to complete it for homework. We will have literature circle discussions again tomorrow.  It is important that each group member complete the reading and their response for the daily group discussions.

Students continued working on their science fair projects by building their car prototypes.

We did not work on our IB portfolios today. Instead we used this time to work on math review.

Grade 6s attended French, music, and gym class today.
