G7 Striking & Fielding – Decisions Decisions!

110302-N-OA833-008The Grade 7’s are just starting work on their Striking & Fielding games. Here we will be searching for all the decisions that an athlete in these type of sports needs to make; and the factors that influence those decisions.

This relates heavily to the work the Grade 7’s are completing in Tutor. In Tutor, the students are looking at social & academic issues that Grade 7’s come across and the decisions they need to make. The process of Decision Making in any context is quite similar, and it’s important to consider the factors before jumping into a decision!

To access this task, we first of all need to learn to play the game.

Student Lead Conference Prep

Grade 7’s,

Student Lead Conference is approaching and we need to prepare for them. Your parents will come to school and you will guide them through your successes so far this year and discuss with them the areas you feel you need to improve on.

Here is the structure you need to be able to achieve this.

Using the IB Learner Profile, choose 4 that you are really proud of and 1 that you think you need to work on.

Create a Mindmup that looks like this picture.

You will write a CLAIM for each learner profile and a SUPPORT for each CLAIM. Your SUPPORT must contain evidence of work from at least 2 different subjects.

We will work on our CLAIMs and SUPPORTs in class but here is an example and some helpful tips.

Good Luck!

7A Tutor – Time!

Time Keeps on Slippin’

Many of us find it difficult to fit in all of the things that we want/need to do in a day. At school, when things get busy, we need to plan our time well so we can achieve our goals.

Your task for today…
1. Open up a Gdoc, name it “Aitor’s Time”, share it with me, put it in your 7A tutor folder.
2. Find and write 2 english expressions that describe ‘time’ (e.g. “Time is of the essence”)
3. What do they mean? (write a sentence for each)
4. Make a list all of the activities that you do in one day (brushing teeth, homework, walk to school…)
5. Click on this link and do the simple survey – My Daily Schedule.
6. Write a detailed paragraph:- Did you see a problem? What can you do about this problem?

Finished? Find 3 famous songs on youtube about time. Put the link on your Gdoc.

7A Tutor Field Studies Reflection

Da Cheese rap!

Our significant concept is “Living and working with others creates opportunities and challenges” Explain how this significant concept relates to camp.

Why did we go on camp? Why did we go Mountain Biking? Why did we make Soba in groups? Why did we change the seating arrangements at dinner time?
