Here is the homework for the weekend:

Math - a math sheet was emailed to the students;  some students had a problem with using subtraction to solve equations.  I have included here a video that shows a strategy on how to solve these questions.  Although it is not the method that I have shown the students in class it is acceptable and will help the students understand what is going on.  Click on the link if you need assistance (look at the 3:30 minute mark of the video)

English - Literature Circles - week 3 activities

Upcoming Test and Quizzes:

Dec. 7-11 (TBA) Science (Unit 1)
Dec. 7-11 (TBA) Math - algebra
Dec. 14-18 (TBA) Geography - economics


That's all for this week.

Gr. 7 parents - EQAO Gr. 6 testing results were sent home today with the students.

Gr. 8 parents - year-end field information went home today regarding an excursion planned for Toronto.  Please return the permission form and deposit if attending.  There was a post in this blog earlier regarding the trip and where we will be going.  Click the link if you did not see this (

Please note the link in the math section if your child is experiencing any difficulties with the algebra questions.  It may help.

That's all folks!  Have a great weekend.
