Social Studies:

Chapter 5 test will be written on Wednesday, January 18.  Some students took the review to work on over the weekend, and everyone else will get it on Monday.  We will be reviewing Monday and Tuesday.

Language Arts:

We have started working on a persuasive writing unit.  We started looking at ads and commercials, and students designed their own ads. We are now looking at persuasive articles and in particular examining their introductions, reasons supporting the author’s stance (and supporting details) and conclusions.  Next week we will look at techniques authors use to persuade, and then we will move on to writing persuasive pieces.

*Students were given a permission slip to have signed in order to participate in the Canadian Student Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs survey.  Please return to me as soon as possible!  Thanks!

We have finished chapter 3 and are working on the chapter 3 assignment (there is no test for this chapter) The assignment is a movie assignment.  We are watching “The Pursuit of Happyness” (that is not me misspelling happiness- that is how the movie title is spelled 🙂 ) And students have questions to complete about the movie.  I will give the due date when we finish watching the movie.  The questions will likely be due on Thursday at the earliest.

Language Arts

All 3 classes are finishing their book jackets for The Boy Who Dared.  All classes will have a little more class time to finish them and the due date is Wednesday, November 30.

Note- Independent Novel studies are due next Monday- December 5!  All 3 classes will have one more class to work on them.  Some students have handed them in already, and some students may need to be working on them at home.

7L~ After working on some current events and Remembrance Day activities, we got back to the text today and started chapter 3.  We read the first section of the chapter and students started some questions, which we will finish tomorrow.

Language Arts:

All 3 classes finished reading the novel The Boy Who Dared.  Students had some questions to complete as we read, and they are due for all 3 classes by Wednesday.  (Quite a few students have already passed them in.)

Tomorrow all 3 classes will start the assignment with this book, which is creating a book jacket for the novel.  Students will be given class time for this, although if they need more time, they will need to work on it at home.

*Reminder of the Book Fair, which is taking place the rest of this week in the library!  7G went today, and 7K and 7L will be going tomorrow. Students can go before school, at break, at lunch, and after school.
