What We Learned Today...September 2nd

ELA: This morning we started out our morning a special Sorting Ceremony where students were sorted into their proper Hogwarts Houses. These teams will now work together to earn points for their houses through displaying positive behaviour in our classroom and school. Points can also be deducted from their houses for displaying inappropriate behaviour , but I don't believe that will be a problem with our class!

Health: We used this period today to go through the Connected Educator project that our classroom was granted this year.  Essentially each student will have their very own assigned laptop for the entire year that they will be able to use at school.  More information about this project will be going home next week. If you would like a peak at the procedures we went through as a class feel free to check out our One to One Device Procedures.  

Quizizz Activities: After we got the hang of our new devices the students participated in two online quiz games to review the procedures from our class as well as a quiz that helped them get to know their classmates a little better.

Egg Drop:  During the last hour of the day we headed outside for a special egg drop competition with our fellow Grade 8 students from Mr. Rieger's room.  Students tested out their creations from earlier this afternoon to see if they could protect their egg from a drop off of the roof.

*As I mentioned yesterday, I am so lucky to have such an amazing group of young people to work with this year.  I'm positive we are going to have an amazing year together and look forward to all the fun to come.  Have a wonderful weekend everyone, I'm looking forward to Tuesday already!

Bonus: *As a bonus for checking my blog, the first student to send me an email telling me their favourite part of this week will get 20 points for their Hogwarts House.
