I do not think I will continue to maintain the blog daily as only two people responded saying that they read the blog.

May 15th

Work:

  1. Math 5 – Integers – Page 1 and corrections – Due Tuesday, May 16th
  2. Math 6. – Linear Equations – Pages 6-8 – Due Tuesday, May 16th
  3. Writing – Rough Copy – Writing from Different Perspectives – Due Yesterday – (Monday, May 15th)
  4. Computer – Scratch Videogame – Due Monday, May 22nd

Notes:

  1. Parents: I need your help. Some students are not finishing work or losing it. If they don’t turn the work in, they will receive a grade of zero. The Force and Energy project was one that about 8 students did not finish. I am asking them to submit a new project so I don’t have to give them a zero. So far none of those students have. Please discuss past and present projects with your child and ask if he or she has finished everything. In many cases, receiving a zero on the project could drop a student’s grade below 50%.
  2. The Playland field trip is on Wednesday – May 17. Dress for the weather. Bring a small backpack for sunscreen, lunch, a water bottle, etc. Money for lunch is optional (maximum $20).
  3. The students need to wear RED and WHITE clothes on Friday for the Mannequin Challenge.
  4. We are going to see a performance at The Orpheum with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. A note has been sent home. The cost is $8. Please send exact change in an envelope with your child’s name on it. Thank you.

TEST – I would like to see how many parents read these posts. Please message me on ClassDojo to tell me that you saw this message. If you aren’t signed up for ClassDojo, email me at gkachmar@vsb.bc.ca. Thank you.

  1.  A lot of kids have shown interest in buying the book 20 Games You Can Create with Scratch. It is still available on an old order through Scholastic. If you are interested in helping your child learn computer coding, this book is a great deal at $12.60. Contact Glenn if you have any questions.
