Welcome Back Grade 7

Welcome to Week 2!

This week I would like everyone to look for lessons identified by the blue calendar, with a blue star on their dreambox page. 

Activities to try for Tuesday/Thursday:

1. Comparing Fractions and decimals game "Monster stroll". Search or follow the link  www.mathplayground.com

(a) Click on Math Games, then scroll down to the orange heading "More Fraction Games" and click on that.

(b) Once there, scroll down to the Brain Builders section and click on the "Monster Stroll" game.

(c) The object of the game is to reach the finish line first by moving your player to the fraction or decimal that makes each statement true. 

Have fun!

2. Fraction Card Game  - you will need a deck of cards to play, and a partner or two, even three!  :)

(a) Start by removing the Jack, and face cards from the deck.

(b) Using the cards Ace = 1, through 10, shuffle the cards and give each player four cards. 

(b) Each player makes the biggest proper fraction they can using two of their four cards. (*remember 5/5= 1, so it's not a proper fraction)

(c) The player with the largest fraction gets the point. 

(d) Return cards to the deck, shuffle and play again. 

(e) The player with the most points at the end wins! (you can decide how many rounds will make the game)

Welcome to Week 2!

This week I would like everyone to look for lessons identified by the blue calendar, with a blue star on their dreambox page. 

Activities to try for Tuesday/Thursday:

1. Equivalent Fractions game "Triplets."  Search or follow the link   www.mathplayground.com/Triplets/index.html

Once there, click on the arrow to start. The objective is to match fractions and models to their groups by dragging the fraction or model to where it fits.

*Hint: I like to start with the unit fraction (numerator is 1, example 1/4), or the model and then find the equivalent fraction to the unit fraction to finish the group. Give it a try!

2. On the same site, www.mathplayground.com , under Math Games,

(a) Scroll down and click on the orange bar "More Fraction Games".

(b) Once there, scroll down to near the bottom of the page to find the heading "Computation- Fractions and Decimals". 

(c) There are two headings to practice. Each gives an example as a reminder, then you can try. The headings to try are 

"Improper Fractions to Mixed Numbers"

"Mixed Numbers to Improper Fractions" 

These are what we were working on when we were last at school. Good luck!

Go back up to the game, click on START. Choose your fact family to practice, and START. After you successfully answer the fact questions, you can help Sketch get to the next level. Have fun!

2. Equivalent Fractions game "Triplets."  Search or follow the link   www.mathplayground.com/Triplets/index.html

Welcome back!

I am very happy to be able to reach out to all my kiddos! I have missed you all. We are stepping into a new way of learning together and I will do my best to help in any way I can.

Should you have any questions, parents can contact me at:  michelle.hache@nbed.nb.ca

For students, use your Office 365 username and password. I have set up Teams for Grades 6-8 so students can send questions/comments about their work there.

The following parent letters provide an outline of the Dreambox site. It is an adaptive math program that adjusts to meet each individual child's level. The program recommends three, 20 minute sessions per week. This is just a guideline. It is my hope that each of you enjoy the program, create neat Avatars and learn a little along the way. Have fun! I have identified which lesson to start with, it will be identified with a little blue calendar.

I would also like you to have a little fun with your math too, so for this week I am asking each of my students, on Tuesday or Thursday, to try a baking activity! Try a recipe that can be doubled, maybe ask someone to help. Be mindful of the fractions you see in the recipe; can you put them in order? (grade 5-7). Try changing any mixed numbers into improper fractions (grade 6-8). I look forward to hearing what you made!
