Happy April Fools Day everyone! Be kind in the pranks you pull on your family members. Remember, you're going to be stuck together for a while and undoubtedly they'll find a way to pay you back with more mischief!
Today we've got some review on plotting points on the coordinate plane.
- First there is an activity called The (Awesome) Coordinate Plane Activity on Desmos Click Here!
- Then there is a worksheet to plot points to create a Wabbitt! Feel free to color it in when you're all done!
I'm hoping on Thursday or Friday morning to have a Zoom gathering with those of you that are interested. I plan to use Math Buddy's Questions of the Day questions for this session. It'll be experimental to see if we can pull this off. Mrs. Cormier said she had a session on Tuesday that went well!

Today's topic is reviewing solving one step equations. On the Distance Learning page for this week there is a video to watch first. Worksheet 'E-75 What did the butcher say to the tough piece of meat?' should be in your packet. The video and clues should give you some good strategies to solve these.
I also have posted the worksheet and video in Google Classroom!

It's a new week everybody! A snowy morning too! They have put out a 2.5 hour delay for the food drops so the breakfast may arrive more for brunch! ;-)
Today's topic is adding Integers. There is a Brain Pop video to start off with. Please take the review for the quiz after the video and email me your results. Then there is a worksheet, E-66 Moving Words worksheet, for you to do as well. Check under the Distance Learning tab for this week's resources.
Note: People are needing the Brain Pop username and password - here they are!

Good to hear from some of you yesterday! I got some good math questions from you from worksheets in your packet. We've got some hard workers out there!
Today in Google Classroom you will find a quiz based on the first 4 worksheets in the math packet that was sent home and the Quizizz and Kahoot. Please try it even if you haven't done all 4 of these worksheets yet!
From my email yesterday you now know that I can't put grades into Power School for work completed. I still will review work sent to me in Google Classroom or email and do my best to answer questions that you have, I just can't put a formal grade in for Power School. Thank you to those who responded - I'd love to hear from the rest of you!
Next week we'll focus on the remaining 4 worksheets in the packet and I will put up new activities to try over the week. We're working on a new packet to be used up to vacation week.
Enjoy this sunny Friday everyone!

Hey everybody!! Looks like some sun today and back up into the 40s! If you're in an area where you can get outside be sure to get some fresh air and soak up some vitamin D from the sun. We're closing in on the end of the week. Please take a look at those worksheets and get some passed in through Google Classroom. I've been entering work passed in correctly into Power School so that those of you who pass in some work will come into school with a nice grade when we come back together.
Todays assignment is E-60 'Who saw the brontosaurus enter the restaurant?' based on adding Integers. Just remember good guys versus bad guys. It should go pretty smoothly!
I'll be posting a quiz for tomorrow through Google Classroom based on this weeks topic. Please be sure to look for it.
Shoot me an email - love to hear from you!

We started out with a snowy morning - I'd say we got about 8 inches of snow last night! Anybody take advantage of the snow and do any snow sculpture, build snow forts, or have snowball fights? I dug my snowshoes out and took the dogs out for a hike, a 3 mile hike at that! I like to make videos so I took time to get some footage of my hike and here's what happened! Snow Time With Furry Friends
For today's assignment we'll be looking at more percents with E-37 What is the best way to serve Lion meat? Some of the problems will be easy BUT some of them are going to be a little tricky. Look on the Distance Learning page for some hints and pass it into Google Classroom by taking a Photo Booth shot of your work, worksheet AND actual work. Especially the actual work!
Did you try the Quizizz on COVID19? How did you do?
Shoot me an email and let me know how you're doing!
Tuesday March 24, 2020
I heard from some of you yesterday and see that some people were in doing the Quizizz and Kahoots on the Distance Learning page here. I just added another Quizizz on COVID19 to test how well you know in regards to keeping yourself and others healthy during this time.
Please take pictures of your work (worksheet AND work, ESPECIALLY the work) and submit them in the appropriate assignement on Google Classroom. I am aiming for one assignment a day Monday through Thursday with a quiz using Google Forms on Friday. As work gets passed in I am putting grades into the Power School gradebook to mark credit when it's done.
I'll be looking for top point scorers in Khan Academy at the end of the week to see who our Dukes, Dutchesses, and then Queen or King will be for this week!
I'd love to hear from you even if it's just to say hey!

Happy Monday everyone!
First of all congratulations to Mark in 8C for getting the Khan King award. He accumulated the most points in Khan Activity last week. Each week I'll be looking for the highest accumulated points from each group who will be Dukes or Dutchesses of their groups with the highest of the four becoming King or Queen Khan for the week!
I saw the busses go by making deliveries this morning. With it you should have received LOTS of materials from the Somerset team. I'm sure you're all VERY excited!! There is a math packet with worksheets reviewing things we've worked on over the year so far. After this packet we'll pick up where we left off in school.
For today I'd like you to tackle worksheet E-26. There is a video for review on the Distance Learning page here. On Google Classroom there is an assignment space to attempt to pass it in by you taking a picture of it.
On the Distance Learning page there are Kahoot and Quizizz challenges to do this week. They will close at the end of the week or shortly thereafter. I'll have different ones each week. I also put a link to Math Buddy Question of the Day. Try these with your family. Start at Grade 1 and work your way up. Maybe you can get them all - or see how close you can get! They give a solution to each problem after you submit your answer.
Learning like this is going to take some getting used to and we'll have bumps along the way but WE CAN DO IT!!
You can email me at email@example.com
Let's start this week off STRONG!

Hope everyone is doing okay. Is boredom setting in yet for you folks?
We have been busy putting together packets for you to work on while everybody is stuck at home. Please refer to the Distance Learning page here for help with your packet. If you don't yet have a packet you can go to Google Classroom to download the math worksheets in the packet. You can use regular paper to do your work.
Feel free to email me with questions as you work through the packet and update with your progress.
I recommend working on some Khan Academy too. 20 - 30 minutes several days a week in addition to our packet would be super to maintain your math skills and more math learning!
Hopefully we'll see you on March 30th. Guess we'll need to stay tuned in to see if that will be the case!
We miss you all!
