Everyone must have been doing a sun dance this week for us to get so lucky on Friday. What a gorgeous day. Other than three students getting stung but wasps, the day went extremely well. The kids ran and ran. There were so many tired and sweaty faces when it came to clean up time. I just love seeing kids who are exhausted from physical activities.

Grade 6 Math - Practice interpreting Pictographs with this link. Grade 7 Math - Practice adding integers with this awesome link! (You don't need a special name or anything. Just keep pressing 'continue' until you get to the game). I am so impressed by how concentrated you have all been the last two days while writing your three to five paragraph essays on your Persecution theme (hope, courage, and power of family). Why do you think that is? Is it that you have written an essay before and know what to do? Is it that the topic is so interesting? Leave a comment about it.
