What’s up this Week (October 28-November 1)
Spirit Week, Halloween, Stock Market Project due, and a math test are all heading your way this week – so be prepared!
For those that do not following our class twitter account, here is a list of the spirit days this week:
And here is a list of other upcoming deadlines and events:
- October 30 = Math Reassessments (at lunch) for those who submitted a request
- November 1 = Progress Reports Distributed
- November 1 = SWYK: Adding and Subtracting Integers
- November 1 = Stock Market Portfolio Project DUE (math)

This is the final week for the integers unit. Our last topic (and definitely the most difficult) is subtracting integers. We will be investigating this topic during Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. On Thursday, students will have a little time to ensure their stock market project is complete (click HERE for a more detailed post on this project) as well as a final day to touch base regarding the topics on the SWYK.
On Friday, students will be writing their assessment on Adding and Subtracting Integers as well as handing in their Stock Market Project.
A reminder that students looking to improve their grades are encouraged to check out their online assessment trackers and identify areas with which they can improve (check out this post for more information on how students can file for a reassessment).
We are continuing with our book “The Bridge Home”. We plan to read up to Chapter 30, connect again with our partner classes via kidblog and flipgrid as well as digging deeper into some of the theme and symbols in the book.
We will continue to prepare our prayers for our class prayer book. Students will be starting to present their prayers to the class next week.
Our discussions will continue to focus on food webs and the interactions between the organisms in these webs. Discussions and simulations related to how an ecosystem can crash will be explored as we work towards finishing up our first unit in science (the test is scheduled for Friday, November 8).
This is only our last week with Mr. O’Neill in our class (until February when he returns for another three weeks). I just wanted to take some time to thank him and his contributions to our 7-11 community.
