this was so fun but we messed up
Stephanie, I am sure others barely noticed that something was not the way it was planned.
What size do we have to use when we type down the mini-report?
Are you asking about the font size? It depends on the font. Size 12 works well when you are using Arial or Times New Roman.
Hi, today was my first day at Douglas, and it was pretty fun, i made lots of new friends which was great. My teachers name is Ms.Treacher, and my science & Health And Career teacher is Mr.Hait. BYE!
You have a teacher named Mr.Hait? Okay...
YAY!! I hope you are having a great time em
It's good to hear from you Emily. I am not sure if Ms. Treacher will remember me, my Mr. Hait taught my daughter Math. That was quite awhile ago, but it is nice to see that he is still teaching there.
Hi, what are the words for L.A ( Tuck Everlasting )
You can check with someone in class tomorrow, if no one answers. Tuck Everlasting is not due until Thursday.
The words for Tuck Everlasting were: Reluctantly, brooch, gallows, accessible, isolation, intrusions, tolerantly, exasperated, self-deprecation, and remnants. I'm positive that these were the right words.
Your friend, Kevin
Thank you, Kevin, for coming to Joshua's rescue.
Do We also have to write the summary for the rock hyraxes in addition to the key words?
I think we write the twenty-five words or less on the Key Words 2 paper, unless I'm mistaken.
Yes, I belive that is what it is. Use the key words to make up a telegram. Each word except "a" is 10 cents and you have a tottal of $2.50.
Does punctuation count though Ms.M ?
Does the telegram have to be in the order of the sections?
Kevin and Clara, you are both absolutely correct about what you have to do. Clara, to your question about punctuation, it does not count.
Thanks Kevin Le and good job at the game (Kevin Le, MVP)
I also want to say congratulations to the boys basketball team for beating Tecumseh. The score was 68-43 so, good job!!
Oh and good luck in the FSA tommorow gr.7's
Oh, don't you worry about those FSAs.
Way to go, boys! Let me know if you will be playing at our school again. I would live to see the game.
Yay !! the boys team won!!
When does Ms.Bernard post the vocab words for Tuck Everlasting? It will be too late after 5:50 because I have to finish all work before 6:00.
If Ms.Bernard does not post it on the site, then here is the vocabulary words: Gall, disheartened, consolingly, plaintively, staggering, seized, intense, oppressive, meager, dimensions, and stationary.
I finished some telegrams but I was wondering if I have to keep the telegram part organized by the sections
Clara, it is not necessarily to present your ideas in the same order. You can combine and re-arrange them in any way, as long as in the end, you have a nicely flowing summary that makes sense.
Hi guys, do we do question 1 of the science homework according to chapter 1.1?
You just compare a salmon with a tomato plant. Create the columns like on the book (tally chart almost) and compare them based on the special features of living things.
Hey Kevin, you got kudos again!!!!!!!!
(Sighs) I know... excuse me...I'm going to cry (not exactly)...
I can predict the future, next week: Kevin gets kudos... again
I don't know about that......
Nope Tasfia, you're wrong.
Good luck to us grade 7's on the FSA test-again- tomorrow (yes, it's 12:00 "AM," I have jokes about those kind of times, so yeah)!
For the rock hyraxe thing what words don't count as 10 cents
Probably the letter "a."
Or if we can't use all key words
"A" and "the" don't count. You may find that you don't need all the key words for your summary or you may find the way to combine some of the ideas, so that you can reduce the number of words used.
I would suggest to fit in as much key words in there as you can-that's what I did for mine, at the end, I didn't fit all of my key words in, I closed as much words as I can.
what is the telegram thing?
Melanie did a good job explaining what a telegram is. You were away when we discussed this in class. You can get the text from me tomorrow morning. There are probably some extra copies in the "Extras" tote tray on the shelf at the front of the classroom.
The telegram is where you have to pay an amount of money for each word.
You can as Ms.M for the sheet tomorrow
Can someone tell me what the homework/what we did in class today was! I was not there.
Well, in French class, we had to finish the bedroom drawing of our bedroom (and we learned a new phrase: "On voit que dalle," meaning "you didn't see anything"). The bedroom thingy is due Thursday.
We were given out a new Tuck Everlasting booklet and new vocabularies to figure out--troupe, perversely, elated, reservoirs, eddies, lolled, camphor, assaults, helter skelter (yes, it's also a Beatles' song), and I think disarray--.
Ms. Bernard also handed out a science worksheet to work on and gave us a small science quiz. And I think that's it.
So nothing for math I was also away! And what is it for French? ?
For French, the bedroom bird's eye view of your own is due Thursday. it needs to be colored and outlined, too. And today for math, we started on the new "Measurements" chapter, and the questions were--on lesson 5.1-- 1,2 and 3, 5, 7, 8, and 11. It's pretty cool if you ask me.
I am ssooo happy to hear that Math is cool ! Kevin, you made my day!
For French it could also be how you look at your bedroom if you had just walked through the door
Ms.M? I thought that you said that the Social's notes were due on Wednesday and not Monday. Or am I wrong?
Kevin, notes and bibliography are due by the END of Socials on Monday, Feb. 2. The timeline that I gave everyone on the very first day we talked about the project says the same. Although you do have two periods of Socials on Monday, I suggest that you do not leave all your note taking for that day. The reason I am asking for the notes to be handed in on Monday is that I need a day to look over everyone's notes to make sure everyone has what he/she needs to do a good job on their Glog. If you want, you can sign out a couple of books that we have on the cart to take home. Just make sure you ask the teacher librarian to check them out under our name. Please bring the books back on Monday as someone else may need them for their research. The Champlain branch of the Vancouver library also has a good selection of kids books on Ancient Egypt. I hope this helps. Did your group show me your questions?
Thanks Ms.M, that explains a lot. And our group made some new questions but we didn't show it to you.
You can post your questions here and i can help you to refine them, if needed.
For the social studies is it 7-10 events each person or the partners altogether do 7-10 events?
Each person should choose 7-10 events, but this does not mean that you can't choose the same event or events. Right now, each person is researching the history of his/her country and that's why you need to choose 7-10 events that you consider important. Try to make sure that you choose events from different time periods. In other words, I don't want all you events to happen within 10-20 years. Some of them can be close to each other, but you should really try to show what events shaped the country over time.
Ms.M for th giant sequoia thing what did we have to do for that ....... Because I knew what to do for the 4 opening sentences but not sure on what to do for the tree thing.
See Homework page.
Kevin do you no (know ) what to do
Come on don't stop answering now
For the Giant Sequoia sheet that Ms.M gave out, we--i think-- had to write or underline the parts that we liked about it, just as we did with the chocolate story by Alex. ("I like chocolate,"as Gordan would say.) And for the 4 topic sentences, you have to make an opening topic sentence. Sounds fun, right?
Oh, and congrats to Jomahawk! I knew you would win Kudos! (Um...No offense to other people.)
Tank ku tank ku
Accent (I like chocolate) 😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑
I think the tree thingy is just an example for your 4 opening sentences
Ms.M for the 7-10 important events what kind of events should we wright down
You could write down an event that helped change your country, it could also be a very important battle.
Gordon, please check the homework page. I just re-posted the homework from Wednesday. There must have been a computer glitch since I did post all homework on Wednesday.
Aw man, if we could have made our own kingdom, I would have named mine "Dinomyte," the kingdom of dinosaurs. Good name, eh?
I would name mine " I like chocolate " with a accent
For the 7-10 important event do you have to explain about it
Yes, you do. Go to the Homework page for details.
Ms.M, i have searched up some of my questions and have written down the facts that the questions gave me. Do I still have to show it to you?
I am trying to make sure that you cover you topic in depth and that you don'the spend your time answering questions that are not significant enough. Otherwise, tomorrow, you may find that you still have a lot of material to cover.You can take your chances and show me your questions and along with the notes tomorrow, but be prepared that I may have more questions for you. Either way, I do want to see the questions. Remind me what topic is your group researching.
We are researching about the gods and goddesses of Egypt.
OK What questions have you come up with so far?
Our questions are:
1. What gods/goddesses did the ancient Egyptians worship?
2. What forms did Egyptian gods and goddesses take on?
3. Why did the ancient Egyptians started worshiping their gods and goddesses?
4. Where did the ancient Egyptians keep statues of gods and goddesses?
5. How did gods and goddesses represented themselves?
6. What roles did Egyptian gods and goddesses have?
I got some answers for these questions, too.
does anyone know when science is due?
Tuesday. Plus or minus.
That's a good start. #1,3 and 4 questions are very clear to me. #2 and #5 seem to be similar, but you can explain to me the difference in class tomorrow. I am also a little bit unclear about #6, but once again, you can clarify it to me tomorrow.
I also have a question that you may want to look into:
How did Ancient Egyptians worship their gods and goddesses?
I will explain it today Ms.M, it is kind of confusing. But, hey, I didn't think about your question.
bagel man was here
Look out man, Homer Simpson is gonna be out to eat you! (He does eat doughnuts, so he must eat bagels, right?)
ah ah ah aha ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
i didnt write that??????????
And P.S. I EAT BAGELS
Wait, Ms.B, do you have to change up the pictures or just let it stay like that for the science kingdoms? Re-create sounds like just change up the pictures but keep the words, right?
Oh, and we need to have a title, too?
For science when you say " recreate from biggest to smallest or smallest to biggest" is the way you listed it biggest to smallest because I do not have a science text book at home with me.
I don't know, I just listed from Animalia, to Plantae, to Fungi, to Protista, and finally to Monera-that is to say, biggest to smallest. I had the same question so I'm not quite sure.
And what pictures do we do . Do we do the ones from the text book or do we make up are own.
I believe we do, Gordan. (Or let's be Sherlock Holmes:"Elementary, my dear Watson, elementary." Not on topic, sorry.) When I checked the homework board on the website again, I saw that she'd said,"You may need to search for protista and monera on the internet to re-create the image." That was when I was beginning to realize that she meant that we had to search up the pictures for those cells. (Oh.) So I re-created the kingdoms and changed up, ah, some pictures.
Do my way at your own risk (even though I'm not sure which way's right).
We have to outline and color science??
I belive so kasia
Probably. I"m 98.7% sure because it would look way nicer with colors and outlines.
How do you know?
Yes. Qui. Si. Let's "go!"
Because I'm magical
Man, this guy is the Wizard of Oz, that's what he is. Then he just goes around with this joke and be like,"What do you call a dog that does magic? (Laughs in hysterics.) A labracadabradour! (Hein, hein, hein.)
I forgot I have gifted learners writing today, ms.m I forgot to hand in my SS notes and you said we can hand them in today but I have no way of getting them in today. I could take a picture and email them to you but I forgot your email. What can I do?
Clara, hand them in to me tomorrow morning. Enjoy your writing program today.
When is science (check your understanding) due
I don't know exactly..... but I think it's due on Friday
Well, Friday, that was what she said right? Since most people are already done science, probably the due date is set at Friday.
As I promised, here are a couple of websites for you to look at on Russia. Just cut and paste these into your browser.
There are many more, but you can start with these ones.
It's going to be a popcorn and chips sale tomorrow $1 each
Poor Movie Night got cancelled.
Boo hoo, so sad........
But they rearranged one in April, I think.
How come no one posted anything for homework?
Both Ms. Bernard and I were too busy at school until quite late last night. That's the reason I ask everyone to use their agendas, so that you have a back-up plan.
Can I ask the girls' basketball team something? Is it a home game tomorrow? Didn't check, sorry.
i think we have a game at cook ,probably
I think it's a home game, Cooks coming to our school.
Its a home game
How much do you have to type for your mini report?
You need about one page of notes and about one page for your mini-report. Remember to cite the books/websites you used for your research and to add an illustration or a diagram or anything else that will help to explain your topic. And put voice into your writing!
It's always 1 page
With either 12 font or 14 (max)
does anyone know when the "stucture in cells" table for science is due
Do we also have to do the characteristics column in the science vertebrates chart even though it's the same?
Yes you still have to wright in the characteristics column, but you just have to copy what they wrote
When do they update the homework
Ms.M I left my note taking sheets at school so can I just take notes on lined paper?
Who won kudos
Is this my brother or what? (Just kidding.) Maybe this is Gordan.
What??? You mean someone used your name in the blog????
How'd you know
Why are you Kevin Len now???? And I think you won Kudos.
Are they going to update homework board?????
The homework is exhausting to do. You already know right, Gordan?
The homework board is up to date. Check out the details I posted. Let me know if you have any questions.
You posted at 12:42 pm ( you beat Kevin Le's record of posting something at like 12:02 pm) .
Actually, my dear Bagel-man (Sherlock Holmes's voice), I posted at 12:02 "am." Scratch that, 12:03 am.
I don't know..... but in case they don't, the homework is: science chart and #1-4CYU, and the mini report. I think.
Hey guys, what are the questions for the religion mini report?
1) What are the main religions?
2) Which, if any, Gods are honoured?
3) When do people pray?
4) Does religion play a major or minor part of society?
Use my questions as a starting point in your research, however, do not limit yourself to these questions. If you feel that it is important to include something else in your report, go for it. I can not predict all the possibilities of what you may discover as your research your country. I am giving you some general questions that apply to every country, and it is up to you to add the rest.
Also take your research one step further, Don't just name the main religions, but explain briefly what are the main believes of those religions.
Good luck with your research.
Ms.M, for my group-me, Jomah and possibly Piravinan-, do we start our prezi now?
Kevin, you and Jomah can start your Prezi on Wednesday. Just make sure to gather any additional notes if I asked you in my feedback to the notes that you showed to me earlier. What you may want to do though is to think about what information you would like to include in your Prezi and how will you organize that information (E.g what headings you will have, what pics you want to incude etc). This will make your job easier on Wednesday,
Um...Ms.M, about that...I might have started on my Prezi already. I have found some pictures to include in and have some headings too. Is that bad or is it okay?
I don't see anything bad in that :)
Special delivery for Bagel-man (or G-man or Gordan), you just received a winning for Kudos!
If we note takeon lined paper how many notes should we do??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
I don't know...... maybe about 25 notes????
Wow! That's a lot of question marks. Gordan, there is no fixed number of notes that you are expected to take. You need to have enough notes to cover your topic well. If you are really looking for a number, I would say you need anywhere between 1-2 pages of notes to do a good job on your topic.
Also, if you are researching religion, don't just name the country's main religion. Describe its main believes.
Uh oh....... I didn't answer all of the questions for the religion report.... HEEELLP ME
Ms.M for the question when do people pray( religion) what should we wright for that ???
Sure. Maybe instead focus on how people worship .
If you Ms.M shouldn't your name block thing be in blue and not grey
Um...good point Bagel-Man. But maybe it is Ms.M because that's how she speaks. Keep it simple.
Gordan your are so observant! Ms. B. answered your question from her phone, but we did talk about it first. So, that answer is still the same. Instead of focusing on WHEN people pray, it is better to find out HOW they worship and WHERE.
I can't view this prezi. Make sure you are logged in before you copy what's in the search bar.
Huh???!!! Who is goatkid???!!!
What do you mean, "happy?" Oh. Gosh. Don't worry, I think I know what you mean.
