MONDAY         
Today we finished working on our masked selfies. Some students still need to colour them a bit at home. In math, we worked on a diagnostic test to review topics from Grade 6. I will try to upload the results to each child here on Edsby (I may have to send the paper copies home if that does not work).
         
TUESDAY    
Today we started correcting our Grade 6 diagnostic math tests (not for marks).  This is meant to be a review/reminder of subject material from last year.  In Science, we looked at abiotic and biotic factors as well as the needs of living things. 
         
WEDNESDAY    
Today, we finished correcting our math diagnostics (what students remember from Grade 6).  All students are asked to bring their test (not for marks) home so thier parents/guardians can see it.  Students are asked to reflect on areas of the curriculum they struggled with.  In Science class, we continued looking at Ecosystems.  In particular, we looked at relationships between organisms (lesson 2).  The worksheets are all under Uploaded Files and a digital copy of the textbook is also provided there:  https://docs.google.com/a/mringram.com/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=bXJpbmdyYW0uY29tfGNsYXNzZXN8Z3g6NDQ1MmNhYWQwMmRmMTk5Yg
         
THURSDAY    
In Language class, we listened to a short story entitled "The Treasure in the Forest" by H.G. Wells. Students wrote a response in their journals (personal and never for marks). In mathematics, we practiced place value and rounding (from https://www.math-drills.com/). In Health class, we started looking at healthy eating (https://food-guide.canada.ca/en/).

FRIDAY    
We worked on coding today in class!  Students learned some of the basics in coding in Scratch and made their sprites move, have sound, etc.  In Math, we looked at finding the GCF using factor lists and finding the LCM using skip counting.  In Science, we finished investigating the relationships between organisms.
