Our grade 7 English classes have been reading the novel The Giver. Mrs. Frost was having them do the final summative task today, which was responding to opinion based questions with support from their own experiences and evidence from the book.
Student working on their summative task.
On of their learning tasks was to create a memory wall of feelings, both positive and negative.
Students worked together to develop an understanding of the big ideas of each chapter.
In our grade 6 classes, students were asked to create a monster with a very descriptive text. Students exchanged their texts and another student drew the monster using the description in the text. We have some very scary looking monsters on our walls at SLPS.
In 2A, the students were learning how to write a letter. Students were working together to support each other, as well, they were using the teacher/student generated anchor chart.

Have you ever heard of a typhoon? It’s a huge storm, and the largest in history has just struck in the Philippines. Lots of people have been hurt, families have been torn apart and houses have been destroyed. They need our help. That is why, on Friday Nov. 29th, the intermediate student council are hosting a hat day. If you want to wear a hat in class, you have to pay just two dollars! All proceeds will be going to the Red Cross for the people of the Philippines. Don a hat and donate! From Student Council
Just a reminder that this Thursday November 14th from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m. and Friday November 15th from 8:00 – 11:00 a.m. our teachers will be conducting interviews with our parents and students. Interview request forms went home with the progress reports on Thursday November 7th. For students in grade 3 to grade 8, we encourage parents to bring them along to the interview. We believe students need to be part of the conversation and develop ownership of their learning. If you are not able to attend the scheduled interview time, we suggest you contact the teacher to make other arrangements. Please keep in mind, that some teachers do not have sufficient time to see all students given the limited time for interviews. I know teachers and students have much to celebrate from their learning and welcome the opportunity to share it with you and to work with you to set learning goals for the remainder of term 1. We look forward to seeing you later in the week.
