October 5th- October 9th

This upcoming week (October 5th-9th) grade 7 students will be taking part in the first round of our CARS and STARS assessment. CARS and STARS is a powerful combination of assessment and instruction that works effectively together to improve every student's reading comprehension. By focusing on 12 core strategies, CARS and STARS gives students the essential tools they need to improve their reading comprehension skills.

Students will also be continuing the work on The Secret path and Residential school. We will be continuing to looking at Chanie Wenjack stories including: watching videos, reading articles, and creating some thought provoking art based on the story. 


September 21- September 24

This upcoming week (September 21st - 24th) we will continue our investigation into the first Aboriginal Societies that Europeans came in contact with. We are learning to find commonalities, differences, and to isolate key information - all while thinking critically. Students are also going to be continuing their work around summarizing, transitioning from summarizing after viewing into summarizing after reading. Our focus will be on learning about Terry Fox, and beginning to recognize Personality Traits and examples where he exemplified them.

September 14- September 18

In Literacy,  students will begin working on developing and implementing their summarizing skills. By watching and listening they will be looking for key moments and ideas within stories and creating a summarized piece of writing. 


In Social Studies, students will start to investigate 3 different First Nations with whom the European settlers had contact with. They will be looking for things such as the similarities and differences in things such as traditions, decision making, and more. 


D2L will also be opened this week and teachers will show students how to access work and more.
