Grade 7

Hello everyone!

As you know we have moved to virtual learning at LSK. For grade 7-9 this means they will be logging into a google meet daily at 9am and teachers will be providing lessons and activities in English, Math, Mi’kmaq, Health, Science and Social Studies. Grade 7 will be finishing up a persuasive writing piece in English and moving into a short poetry unit. In grade 7 Health we will be focusing on mental health activities and in Science we will continue to learn about eco systems. Grade 8 Science will continue Climate Change and Grade 9 Science will continue Chemical and Physical Changes. I look forward to seeing everyone in our virtual classroom! I’ll miss seeing everyone in person but this is a great way to keep everyone safe and educated.

Hello everyone!

The first month and a half of school has flown by so quickly. The grade 7-9's have been very busy in class during this time. Grade 7 will be starting a novel study focusing on the book A Stranger at Home which is a follow up book to Fatty Legs and it is about a young girls return home from Residential School. In Science class, grade 7's are finishing up a unit on Mixtures and Solutions, Grade 8 are finishing up a unit on Cells and Grade 9 are finishing up their unit on Cellular Reproduction. We have had some fun activities such as making water filters and cell organelle cakes to demonstrate our understanding of the topics. Halloween is coming up and grade 7 will be doing a quick writing activity around the topic. One note, Grade 7-9 teachers have gotten together to plan some time for each of the students to go to the store within their bubbles. I am including the schedule below so that parents/students know.

Hello students and parents!

September is over and we have been back at school for a few weeks. In that time we have jumped into work in grade 7-8-9 and are having fun with our learning already. In grade 7 we have used individual cereal bars to look at mixtures and in grade 8 and 9 we have used individual cakes with candies to represent plant and animal cells. Science is FUN! In grade 7 English we are reading a novel called Not Cancelled and it is full of stories of things that are positive throughout the Covid 19 Pandemic. Students are generating great conversations. Just a reminder to students and parents – all of the assignments from Grades 7-9 Science as well as Grade 7 English and Health are posted in students google classrooms so they can access any work that has been missed. I'm excited to keep on learning and having engaging discussions in grades 7-9!

Hello everyone!!!

Welcome back to the 2020-2021 School year at LSK. I know that everything will look different this year, but all of the teachers and staff at LSK are excited to see students faces. I am the grade 7 homeroom teacher again this year, teaching them English, Health, and Science. I will be teaching Grade 8 and 9 Science as well. I'm looking forward to getting back to routine and back to teaching. Myself, the grade 8 homeroom and grade 9 homeroom teacher will be creating an introduction video and posting it soon! I hope all the students are excited to come back and begin the new year of learning. See you all soon!

Hello everyone!

We are weeks into our digital learning and after some tweaks I think we finally have it! Between uploading assignments, group and individual video chats and phone calls, I think I've made contact with almost every student in grades 7-9. We finished up or Novel studies and moved onto some work about current events and specifically Covid 19. I received some great writing pieces about what students have been doing, how they are spending their time, and what they think about digital learning. Many of the students have said they miss the classroom – and so do I! I hope everyone is staying safe and looking forward to when we can see each other in person again. Feel free to reach out for help with assignments or just to chat!
