What a great day we had on Friday! There was a lot of learning going on!
I love how we are learning to write more interesting and thoughtful comments. The image above shows the students' practice comments to anothers' website. We have started a discussion about what makes a comment more effective.
Notice how many of us are praising and encouraging but very few are adding personal opinions or giving new information to promote student thinking. Guess what we are doing next?
Homework and reminders:
1. Watch the video by clicking on the 'We are all connected' link below. Let's practice personal commenting and responding to others here. What are your thoughts when you view this video. Remember our criteria for effective comments.
We are all connected.
2. Finish your two pages under Reflection: 1. The Digital Me 2. How I will manage my learning!
3. Math homework for grade 6/7 due on Wed.
4. Create a blog page under your reflection if you haven't done that yet and complete your first reflection. Then ask your parents to respond to you. (parents, you could ask questions, give suggestions or encouragement)
Question to answer: How do you feel so far with how you have been managing your learning?
We are doing the Grouse Grind on Tuesday, Sept. 25th. Be at school at 8:15, ready to leave at 8:30. A huge thank you to all parent drivers! We couldn't do this without you. Your child has brought home a driver form that you can fill out and give to me before we leave.
Be sure to wear layers and bring a knapsack with your lunch, plenty of water and throw in an extra t-shirt to change into after the hike.
Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to comment. We would love to find out more about you:)
