What We Learned Today...September 15th

ELA: We started our morning out with one final period working on the "All About Me" presentations.

Math: Students began the class with a brief quiz on Socrative, before beginning the textbook assignment from Pg. 60 (Full assignment listed below).

Genius Hour: After lunch the students were introduced to the amazing project that we will be doing in our classroom over the next couple of months.....Genius Hour! This is a project that I started doing with my class three years ago, and I am extremely excited to do it again as it allows students to explore their own passions and encourages creativity in the classroom. The students have been tasked with brainstorming something they are passionate about and formulating an essential question. On Tuesday we will start to go through these questions and formally begin the project!

Terry Fox Walk:  During the last hour of the day we met up with our little buddies from Ms. Olsen's room and walked around the Deshaye area in honour of Terry Fox. I was so impressed with how kind and caring the Grade 8 students were with their little buddies today. They were so patient with their little buddies and did such a wonderful job making them feel special and I know for a fact that the Grade 3/4 students can't wait to hang out with their Big Buddies again! Great job Grade 8's!
