We've been up to a lot this week! First of all, we've been learning how to multiply decimal numbers using base 10 blocks. In order to do this, we have to understand area really well, because the area of a rectangle is like the product of a multiplication. Here are a few of us catching on to how we can find 2 decimal numbers that give a specific product.
We've also spent some time revising the rough drafts of our comics in Health & Career to reflect the feedback we got from Mme. B. This is helping us learn how to assess our work critically against criteria to ensure it is our best. After class discussions, skits with feedback, and a couple of rough drafts, our final copies of the comic should definitely show our best work!
Finally, we had a very exciting event today in class. We Skyped another class for the first time! Connecting with another grade 7 class in Surrey for the Global Read Aloud (we're all reading "One for the Murphys") was a great experience that taught us a lot about how different people can interpret texts differently. We're looking forward to connecting with Mr. Dorland's class again in a couple of weeks once we're further into the novel.
Overall, it's bee a busy but eventful week. We're looking forward to the learning that is still to come!
We are a class of Grade 6/7 students in Surrey, BC, Canada. This blog is one way we will share our learning with the world!
