In the Class


WELCOME TO Grade 7 2014 - 2015

Things To Know

Please feel free to contact me by email at erhildebrand@springs.ca if you have any questions or concerns.

PROBLEM OF THE WEEK: Critical thinking is one element of the Math Curriculum that is vital to stretching the minds of young people.  These are the questions that do not have a narrow one way approach of answering them.  they are broad, you can attack from multiple entry points, and challenge the way we see and value information. In our class we will have a POTW each week, they are due Friday.  Although not given class time to complete, these activities are meant to be completed if a student is done an assignment early, at the beginning of class as we settle in unless otherwise instructed, or in their free time.  It is my belief that by challenging the way our children think we can help them make meaningful and important connections not only in math but in the world around them.

AGENDAS: Agendas are mandatory in Grade 7.  We will be using them each class and they should be signed by both teachers at school and parents before being returned the next day.  this is a critical time in your child's life - habits they create now will pass with them into high school, higher education, and into the work force.  Being organized and putting first things first is a great skill to have. 

LATE: As per the expectation contract signed at the beginning of the year your child is expected to be on time to class, and come prepared to learn.  during their five minute break they should have gathered everything they need for that class - binders, textbooks, pencil cases, bibles, agendas etc.  There are two reasons your child will be marked late; they are not in class when the door closes and the class starts, or they come unprepared for class.

Science Homework 7A
For the Crystal workbook:

Question: What happens to the borax solution if we saturate it?
Hypothesis: We think that the solution will form crystals.
Materials: borax, water, kettle, popsicle stick, string, tape, a cup, food  coloring
Method: Add hot water to the cup, add borax and food coloring next.  Stir.  Hang the popsicle stick so it lies in the solution.  Let crystals form.
Data: Crystals form in 12 hours.  The extra solute sticks to the cup and popsicle stick.
Conclusion: Our hypothesis was right.  Crystals formed within 12 hours
Application: Often saturated solutions will form by products - like crystals!

Also draw your crystals and describe them on the right page.

For the polymer booklet use the written info to complete the back page of questions.  Also complete the prediction page.

Dear Parents

The Christmas season is upon us already and we are ready to celebrate the birth of Christ!  In our Bible class we are approaching the part of our unit where we talk about God making each of unique and different in a myriad of ways – hair color, height, likes and dislikes cultures!

To celebrate these differences we are going to be having a cultural potluck instead of a traditional Christmas party on the Morning of December 19th.  Your child is to bring something that is reflective of their families culture (please do not send only desserts!).  If you need to send a slow cooker, as several of you have already asked, we do have outlets.  Only those students who bring something will be sharing this meal, but your child is welcome to bring his or her own lunch if they are not interested in taking part.

Please drop me an email at erhildebrand@springs.ca (notice it is er not just e ;) to let me know if your child will be bringing something and, if so, what they will be bringing.

Also we will be doing a gift exchange; I have already sent home the bags they are to use.  Your child has chosen the name of another student and is to buy a $10 gift – there are ideas on the back of the cards inside the bag.  Again, if your child chooses to not be included they will just sit out of the gift exchange.  Also drop me an email if your child will not be taking part in the exchange and return the red bag they took home to me a.s.a.p. This way I can make sure to pick up any extra gifts to make sure no one is left out.

If you have any questions or comments feel free to contact me at the above mentioned email address.  I appreciate all of your support!


Mrs. Hildebrand

Please send back the progress reports for MATH and SCIENCE signed by a parent.  This is the last glimpse into what is due TOMORROW for marks on this report.

There are many kids who need to complete a LOT of things yet.  If they are in desperate need of time to work they can come to school Friday and work quietly.  I am working on report cards anyways.

November 5th

I was talking with some of my students about how we can arrange for them to hand in work if it is digital format or in the event that they are home sick, out of town etc. Some of the PowerPoints they have made are also too large to email.  They tend to forget or lose zip drives if they carry them back and forth. If your son/daughter is great with organization you can easily save it onto the zip drive and send it that way.  However, I told both my classes that they could add me on Google Plus and upload their files onto Google Docs.  They can send me a message on Google to let me know it is uploaded using the "share" option after uploading is complete.  This saves time and often lost work.  If they need help figuring it out I can run them through the process!

They can also send me homework questions/concerns here and I will get them faster.  I am not promising all access here but when I have the time I will turn my notifications on and do my best to answer any questions they ask :o)

Good evening!

November 4

This week is the wrap of our first term!  Tomorrow the kids will be going home with "unofficial" progress reports that I would like you to sign and return too me.  This is my final way of communicating to the families what is outstanding and needs to be corrected. This way there are no surprises.

I am accepting out dated assignments until Wednesday at the end of the day for this reporting period.

Any student with outstanding assignments (or who need help) will be staying in mandatory study hall in my rom this week until everything is handed in and up to date. I have sent home "collections" of photo copied work several times now for almost all students who have more than two overdue assignments so you should be familiar with the work.

There are no outstanding assignments we are currently working on.  I will not be assigning new homework until after Thursday so they can focus on catching up. 

Check below for a comprehensive lists of all work that we have done!
