Sorry guys! Tomorrow is an administrative day for teachers at K.B. Woodward. We are unable to do the pencil to pixels lesson. I will post instructions how to do it in the near future.
Thank you for working so hard this year! It always brought a smile to my face when you asked me about learning intentions, criteria, self/peer assessment, and feedback. You all became learners who owned you learning. I hope all of you going to high school stay motivated, work hard, and keep learning! Keep in touch and let me know if you ever need help with school. Grade 6's, at this point it looks like I will be teaching grade 6 next year, but if the number of students at K.B. Woodward changes in September, this may change. I look forward to seeing all of you!
IMPORTANT: If you want to learn how to do the 'PENCIL TO PIXEL ART', please check the website in the morning to see if it is still on. If it is still on, please bring drawings you have at home or a sketchbook.

Justin Timberlake - Can't Stop The Feeling!
Today's presentations by Sargent Sanchez and Jordan were an eye-opener for many. You learned many things about what good choices and bad choices can lead to. It is our hope that all of you always think before you make your decisions in order to choose the right path throughout your lives.

Today, the students participated in Dance class during the afternoon block. They will be doing this every day until the end of the week as they learn and practice a routine. They are learning contemporary dance moves and it seems to be quite interpretive. They are all enjoying learning to work with one another in order to reach a goal! It takes teamwork to be successful when working in groups!
1.) MATH: No HW.
2.) FRESHGRADE: Continue working on your learning reflections for Art and Social studies.

Wonder Pets Theme Song - TEAMWORK!
Today was a quiet day of learning inside of division 2's classroom. We started the day off with learning more about angle bisectors and then we read an article and worked on some related activities. Students also read their novels for the Novel Approach during Language Arts and worked on their gift of words and thinking and learning questions. They will start working on their powerful responses later this week so they can end Language Arts off by using everything they have learned this year. With less than 3 weeks to go, everyone is working hard to end the year off right! The grade 7 students are eager to get to high school. Watch this video for some inspiration.
2.) NOVEL APPROACH:
