Monday Morning Memo - May 4th

Monday Memo – La classe de M. Boyer

 

Good morning!  I hope everyone is doing well.  I can’t believe its May already! I’m continuing to expand our online meeting times as they are very successful, and it gives us a chance to go through the assignments together.  I find this very valuable and I’d rather spend the time teaching students directly than making video lessons.  If your child is unable to join a meet time and requires some extra assistance, let me know and we will find a solution.

 

My online meeting hours will be:

 

Tuesday: 

Grade 6 Math – 11am-12pm.  Grade 7 Math: 1pm-2pm.

Room code: Contact M. Boyer

 

Wednesday: Grade 6 French – 11am-12pm.  Grade 7 French 1pm-2pm.

Room code: Contact M. Boyer

 

Thursday: Grade 6 Social Studies 11am-12pm           Grade 7 Social Studies 2pm-3pm

Room code: Contact M. Boyer

 

Friday: Fun French Games: Grade 6: 11am-12pm  Grade 7: 1:00pm-2:00pm

Room code: Contact M. Boyer

 

IMPORTANT:  If your child is using a tablet or phone to do their work, I ask that you install a free app called “Explain Everything Whiteboard”.  We’ve been using Explain Everything to provide an extra layer of collaboration and interactivity during our meet times and it works really well.  If you are using a computer or laptop to connect you do not require the app.

 

Here are this week’s activities.

I’ve added 2 stories from this month’s Notre Monde to Google Classroom.  We will be reading through this together during our online time on Wednesday. Post to FreshGrade when done.

 

Students can start to make a storyboard of last week’s story on Storyboard That.  We’ll be editing the stories next week, so for now, just get a rough outline of your storyboard done.
