Hello families and guardians of 7E!

Dear Parents/Guardians:

 We hope this e-mail finds you and your family safe and well. We really miss seeing our students!

 

Our teaching team met virtually today and we are now preparing learning opportunities for our students.

 

Microsoft “Teams”:

·         Teachers are planning to make themselves available to have a weekly “open classroom” timeslot via the Teams App so that we can live-connect with students in a group setting

·         Microsoft Teams is set up specifically for student use

·         Questions and answers posted on Teams are seen by all FYI

·         Students should receive a link in their student e-mail (if they have not already) to join the teams for their individual subjects

·         Students can also email teachers directly

 

Academic expectations:

Students in grades 6-8 are being encouraged to participate in a total of 2 hours of schoolwork per day plus reading (30 mins.) and physical activity (30 mins.)

 

·         The province's Learning at Home website:

https://www2.gnb.ca/content/gnb/en/departments/education/learning_at_home.html

·         BCMS’s website: 

https://secure1.nbed.nb.ca/sites/ASD-W/BlissCarman/Pages/default.aspx

 

Further roles and expectations:

·         Our role as teachers is to facilitate and to guide learning opportunities

·         Our team will continue sending you a weekly update with learning opportunities offered

·         Your role as parents is to encourage your child to explore the learning opportunities provided

·         Students are encouraged to send in any of their work via Teams and teachers will provide feedback

·         Homeroom teachers will communicate with their classes in the coming days about having a specific time to drop into Microsoft Teams for a virtual video chat with their homeroom. Stay tuned!

 

Our mantra over the next little while is "flexibility, compassion, patience."  Continue to follow the call of our national and provincial leaders to stay home as much as possible, maintain physical distancing when you do need to go out, and to wash your hands frequently.  WE MISS YOU!   Your Grade 7FI Teaching Team 😊​

Welcome to Art (Home Learning Opportunities Edition)

​​This message is for students currently in Art (Term 3)

Hello Eagles!

I will be updating my Teacher page each week with new Art activities. 

All Activities will be posted under the Documents Tab at the top of my page.

These activities have been created to provide an opportunity for you to explore a variety of Art forms and techniques​.  These activities could be undertaken at any point in time between now and June,  if desired.   

   

 ​Please note: 

Each activity is designed to be completed independently by students. Activities are intended to be self-paced and are being provided to students as an additional opportunity for learning only. It is not mandatory that you complete these Art activities.  


The materials listed in each activity are only suggestions. You are encouraged to make use of whatever art materials you have at home.  


Get in touch:

I also want to encourage students to reach out to me through email (lucinda.mills@nbed.nb.ca) . Please feel free to share images of the Art that you are creating while you are home or send me an email  just to say “hi” and let me know what you have been up to.

Mme Whalen - Check in and Learning Opportunities Apr. 6-10

​Good morning, BCMS families!

I miss you very much and I hope that you are all staying well, active, and keeping a positive mindset! This is new and uncharted territory for all of us and as we work through this together, please be patient.

Your 7FI Teacher Team is working together to support your learning and we are here for you.

I will be posting learning opportunities for 7FI Science on my Teacher Page of our school site every Monday. I will also be working with the Microsoft Teams application. I would encourage students to log-in to Office 365 with their student email and go to the Teams app. Each class and homeroom is set up as a team. Students can post questions here at any time, connect with teachers and classmates. Our primary focus is still the mental health and well-being of all students. Our intent is not to add stress or more to your plate. Our goal is to provide learning opportunities which cover outcomes that have already been taught and to support you while we all continue to practice physical distancing. Mme Whalen

 

Learning Opportunities for April 6 - 10th:

- Explore the items posted here

- For  Math, explore Mme Porter's website here: https://jessicaporter5.wixsite.com/bcms​

- Log in to Office 365 with student email (info about student email was sent out last week)

- Explore the Teams app*

- On the Teams app, write a message to Mme Whalen and your classmates*

 

*If you have difficulty with using Teams, don't worry! Everything you need will be posted here and we can make contact via email or another means if you have questions or just want to connect.​


Stay well, mes ami(e)s!

Grade 7 FI - Sciences Humaines, Science, LA, Math and FILA

​Hello students, parents and/or guardians,


While you are home this week, could you take a moment or two to look through binders and/or work piles in order to find any incomplete and/or unsubmitted assignment(s)? If you are able to find and complete any of them, feel free to take a photo of the assignment(s) and email it to your respective teachers (ex: completed map of Canada 1873 is sent to Mr. Church). Please let us know if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Grade 7 FI team

Overdue Reading Comprehensions for 7EFH

​If you are home and still have an overdue reading comprehension from Term 2 (Venise, Fortnite, Forêt Pluvieuse) and want them submitted before report cards, you now have the options to either e-mail me for a username and password to be able to complete it online on the infos-jeunes website. Alternatively, you can complete the hard copy at home and send me an e-mail with your answers. 

Most importantly, I hope you are all safe and doing well with your families. 
Take care,

-Mme M

Grade 7 FI - Sciences Humaines

​Hello parents and/or guardians,

The information that will be posted on my BCMS website teacher page during the next few weeks will NOT be assigned work. It will be suggestions on what students can read, examine and possibly work on while they are at home in hopes of continuing to nurture the effective work habits that we have been developing since September. Please do not hesitate to communicate with me via email eric.church@nbed.nb.ca should you have any questions related to the information being posted.  

Sincerely,

Eric


PS Please see the Latest Documents section on the right side of my Teacher Page to access any recently added items.

FILA Update
I'm not sure where to start - as you already know, there are no homework expectations during these two weeks. However, I know many of you will be looking for work to keep busy during these two weeks. If you are looking for ideas, here are a few options for you: 

- Check out the neat lessons on this website (so many great ideas, options for listening, taking things to the next level by retelling the stories on here or writing alternate endings to the stories, simply write about what you've learned):  https://www.thefrenchexperiment.com/

-Spend some time watching the videos on this site: https://enseigner.tv5monde.com/fiches-pedagogiques-fle/adolescents - write about what you've learned!  (Think "Qui, Quoi, Pourquoi? Quand?Où? 

-Like trivia? Watch an episode of "Boum! C'est Canon!" Write 5 things you learned! https://www.tfo.org/fr/univers/boum-cest-canon 

-Read a French book - finish the library assignment that is due in April. If you have a public library card, I believe that you can access their books digitally instead of going out to a public place to find a book. 

-Find some new French songs for the song critique unit that we're working on now. 

-Play Words with Friends with a friend who is also home. This app can be played in French, and can be used while isolated as it's an online game. 

-Play scrabble in French with a sibling. 

Again, no work expectations for these two weeks, but if you need something to do, these will only help support your learning of your second language. 

I hope you are all doing well and are taking time to rest, reset, and keep a focus on what is truly important. Be kind to one another and take care, 

-Mme M.
