Today, the students worked in their groups for Novel Approach, sharing their learning with each other. They then moved on to practice the pre-test for Word Work before recess. After recess, the students continued to listen to the adventures of Will in the Boundless, and practiced using integrals to solve problems. After lunch, the grade 7s worked on wrapping up their electromagnetism unit by building their motors, while the grade 6s started a new joint-science unit with Division 3, learning about EXTREME ENVIRONMENTS.
Everyone enjoyed some active-time at the end of the day, playing ultimate, basketball, and otherwise running around.

Reluctant, cajole, trove, valise, cordon, festoon, squall, searing, exasperation, intriguing, scoff, clench, delectable, emanate, apprehensive, undulate.
4.) POST A RESPONSE:
- When we are doing integer problems like (+6) - (-4) we get the bizarre answer of +10. How can we explain this?
- What INTEGER RULES can you come up with to explain how to make integer addition and subtraction easier for someone who hasn't done it before?
- Are there ways that we can re-write the above problem (and others) so that it becomes easier to understand?
