December 7 – 11

We have almost made it to the end of semester 1.   4 more sleeps left, as my former students used to stay.  I hope everyone will have a restful, relaxing and fun break.

Also, since this is the end of semester 1, we will be saying goodbye to some of our students.  Although I haven’t been your teacher for long, it has been great having you in class and getting to know you.  I wish you all the best in your new adventure and hope that you will keep in touch!

I have also completed the Quarter 2 Newsletter.  The newsletter contains a review of quarter 2 and a preview of quarter 3.  It also has some pictures of the students hard at work.  Enjoy!

Lesson 1 – Students will peer review their performance task.  They will then have the rest of class to make any necessary changes.  G & H block will also play kahoot this lesson since I will only see them once this week.

Lesson 2 (A, C, F Blocks) – Students will play kahoot and then do a unit 2 survey in order to give feedback about the Innovation Unit.

Lesson 3 (only F Block) – The students will have a shortened block due to the half day on Friday.  We will play geography games.

December 1 – 4

I hope everyone had a relaxing 3 day weekend.  I went to Cebu and had a great time.  It’s already December and we don’t have too much longer until the big break starting on December 11 after the half day.  Next week is also Sports Day so it should be a great couple of weeks.

Lesson 1 – Some classes will have their non-fiction writing mini lesson today instead of last week.  All classes will have a bibliography  mini lesson that will help them make a bibliography in the correct format.  The rest of the class, the students will have time to work on their performance task.

Lesson 2 – Students will have time to work on their performance task.  For A and C blocks, their final product will be due at the end of the hour.

Lesson 3  (Only F, G, & H Blocks) – Students will have the class period to finish up their performance task.  It will be due at the end of the class.
