This week we are launching into http://www.bitstripsforschools.com/. Students are assigned to begin by creating an avatar of themselves and then creating a comic that introduces themselves to the class. Students are to share their comic with the class both on http://www.bitstripsforschools.com/ and on their personal class blogs.
Our “class code” is WPG67E
Today we talked about the 14.09.22 Social Studies text p.12-21 – notes for students. We are answering the question “What Does It Take to Put a Country Together?”.
- Goals As A Student: You are to complete some personal goals as a student to include in your portfolio (these are the orange sheets)
- Pieces To Be Proud OF: Have 1 piece ready from each subject including Math, Science, Social Studies, and English Language Arts.
- Piece I Could Have Done Better On: You will need to choose one assignment that you could have done better on to share with your parents. This could be from any subject area.
- Complete reflections for each assignment: These are the yellow forms for each of the “proud” ones and an green one for the “…better” one. These are to be completely filled in with detailed sentences to explain each piece.
- Put It All Together: All pieces and reflections must be stored neatly in your duotang in this order…(welcome, goals, proud #1, reflection, proud #2, reflection, and so on with the “better” assignment at the end)
- Are You Doing A Video?: If you finish all this early and want to make a video presentation to post to your blog you can do it now.
REMEMBER: THIS IS DUE NO LATER THAN 9 AM TOMORROW (WED.)
Suggestions for what assignment you can put in each subject:
- Math – your paper slide video or any paper assignment you have that represents your ability in Math
- English Language Arts – any blog assignment that shows your writing ability such as your Jabber critique, an item online you wanted to share, a reading reflection, or more…
- Social Studies – a news article to share on your blog or a weekly news or other news reflection. If you have finished your “What Does It Take to Put a Country Together” assignment you might include that one.
- Science – you can either include your current notes and essential questions on animal diversity or you can include your responses from the video watched in class today.
The students of 6-7 E and 6-7 G are going to the Manitoba Theatre for Young People (MTYP) to see
the play “Jabber” on Thurs. Nov. 23rd. Check out an interesting article about the play that appeared in the Free Press on Oct. 9.
