Rainbow Doodle Clipart







I thought I would share some English and Math tasks for you to work on, if you so wish. Keep in mind that this is all optional, and is not to be completed for marks. If you have any questions, please email me at 



You are in my thoughts.


Stay safe,





Here are your tasks for the week of May 4th:





This past week, you were asked to read articles on the “big idea” that depending on your life circumstances, your goals/dreams may be different. In the back of your mind, I would like for you to think about the following question, “If I were to pick one goal that I would like to work towards, what would it be?” We will go into more detail in the coming weeks.


This week’s task will be in two parts:


1.  Article: CVR gym teacher finishes just ahead of bombings - The Gleaner - 2013 (in "Pages & Files" section)


  • This  article is about Mr.Theriault, who has a passion for running marathons, qualifying for the Boston Marathon in 2013.
  • Read this article and when you are done, answer the following question, "Name 5 things that you think helped Mr.Theriault finish the run." 
  • I'll come back to this next week.


2.  Vision Board: A vision board is a visual representation of dreams and goals that you would like to actively work on to achieve.


So what does this mean? It means that eventually, once the outline (see below) is complete, you will create a vision board on a regular white piece of paper (8.5 in. x 11 in.) to represent the things you chose to include in your outline. The purpose of this vision board is for you to put it up in your room as a constant reminder of some of your goals/dreams. The first step towards making the vision board is to complete the outline. So for this week:


  • Complete the outline (in "Pages & Files" section). If you can't print it, you can answer the questions on a piece of looseleaf.
  • This will help you think about things that you would like to include on your vision board. 
  • Please don't worry about what you will need to make it, or what it will look like, we will discuss this next week and I will provide an example. 





Assigned May 7th:


Here is some more review:


Math Help Services:


Lesson 5: Calculating Powers

Lesson 6: Square Roots


Below is some material you have already seen in elementary school on Area and Perimeter. Here are the steps:


  • When calculating area and perimeter, please make sure you always start with the formula.
  • Take a look at the "Chapter 5 Review Notes At Home" in the Pages & Files Section .
  • Watch this video on Youtube to better understand how to find the area of a figure:    https://youtu.be/1dqAOKdJmRI
  • If you have your workbook at home, the work that corresponds to this topic is:
    • Page 160 # 1 – 4
    • Page 161 – All
    • Page 162 # 3 – 8
    • Page 163 # 1, 4, 6
    • Page 164 # 1, 3, 5.
  • If you do not have your workbook at home, I have taken photos of the pages from the Math Quest textbook and included them in the document called "Square & Rectangle Work at Home" in the Pages & Files Section . 




Assigned May 5th: 



We will start off with 2 "review" assignments on Math Help Services: (Remember, your login information was sent to your NFSB email accounts).

  • Chapter 1 - Natural Numbers
  • Chapter 3 - Integers 


*It's important to keep on reviewing what we have already covered. 


I have given you until May 19th to complete these review exercises. The solutions will be  available to you on MHS as of May 14th so that you can check your check and see how you're doing. 


*In the next few days, I will assign new work as a continuation of the chapter on Area and Perimeter.












Here are your tasks for the week of April 27th:




Now that you set a goal and see it through, I hope that you feel a sense of accomplishment. Imagine if, week after week, you continued to set small goals, all the while, working towards something bigger. Something to be discussed in the coming weeks…


Article Reading


We become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams. ~ Jimmy Carter


The idea behind this quote is that we all have different dreams, and that dreams mean different things to different people. In Africa, perhaps a child’s dream is to have access to clean, drinking water and to go to school. If you lived in the mid-1800’s in the United States as a slave, your dream was to one day be free. If you were born with a disability, your dream might be to be able to do the same thing that your peers can do. Other dreams might be to finish high school and go on to college, run a marathon, get a good job and own a house or own a 1967 Shelby Mustang!


This week’s task will be to read 3 articles from Scholastic Scope (see links below). As you read the articles, remember that, “Dreams mean different things to different people”.


The titles of the articles are:


Escape From Slavery - https://scope.scholastic.com/etc/classroom-magazines/reader.html?id=50-020118


The Amazing Powers of Jen Bricker - https://scope.scholastic.com/etc/classroom-magazines/reader.html?id=50-020117


Thirst - https://scope.scholastic.com/etc/classroom-magazines/reader.html?id=50-050116 


After you read each article, write a quick reflection answering the following questions:


  •  What is your reaction to this article?
  • What do you think the person’s dream was?
  • What impact did this person’s “dream” have on the community or society?


Stay tuned for next week’s task. Happy reading! 




The answers to last week’s Math Review Questions are now in the Pages and Files Section.


Math Help Services is now up and running! I understand that this is a new tool, be patient and take the time to explore the site. Your login information has been sent to your NFSB email addresses. Each week, I will assign some topics for you to work on.


In your email, you will notice that I have given you an assignment for each topic. Feel free to watch the videos to help you understand if needed. Keep in mind that you have seen these topics in elementary school.


This week’s topics are in Chapter 8:


The Metric System – One Dimensional Conversions

Perimeter of a Polygon – Level 1

Perimeter of a Polygon – Level 2



The neat thing about Math Help Services is that you will know if your answers are correct after you answer the questions. 


 ***NOTE: The three assignments will be available for you to complete until next Sunday, May 3rd at 11:00 pm.




Here are your tasks for the week of April 20th:





If we were in class right now, we would be working on the term 3 question, “How do we achieve our dreams?” An unknown author once said, “Never let it be said that to dream is to waste one’s time, for dreams are our reality in waiting. In dreams, we plant the seeds for our future.” This has always been my favourite unit since I really do feel that looking ahead and thinking about some of the things you would like to accomplish is valuable exercise that I wish someone had gone through with me when I was your age. So, I thought I would take you through the process of exploring this “big idea” over the next few weeks. Please keep in mind that this is optional and will not be evaluated.



Here are the tasks that I will be sharing with you over the course of the next few weeks: 

  • Goal setting 

  • Reading articles based on this “big idea” 

  • Reading about a person who has achieved a goal/dream 

  • Making your own vision board 

  • A 10-step power point or poster on a plan that you have come up with to reach a goal/dream 

  • Write a narrative about someone reaching a goal/achieving a dream 






Setting goals is the first step to turning the invisible into visible. – Tony Robbins


We have had classroom discussions about the importance of setting goals, after all, reaching one goal after the next leads to a bigger goal/dream. This week, I would like you to focus on setting a goal and tracking your progress. Remember, a S.M.A.R.T. goal is one that is specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timely.


Step 1: Choose a goal. It can be based on anything of your choosing, examples are: getting outside, less screen time, playing with your siblings, helping with household chores, being in touch with family/friends, being active, trying new recipes, reading, etc.


Step 2: Write it down as a S.M.A.R.T. goal. Here are some examples:


  • In the next 7 days, I will go outside 4 times for a minimum of 30 minutes.  

  • In the next 7 days, I will call my ________________ (family member) 3 times to say hello. 

  • In the next 7 days, I will spend 3 nights reading for 20 minutes. 

  • In the next 7 days, I will exercise 3 times for a minimum of 30 minutes. 



Step 3: Track your progress by re-creating the box below (it is an example) on a piece of looseleaf: 


GOAL: Write your S.M.A.R.T. goal first.


  • Example: In the next 7 days, I will go outside 4 times for a minimum of 30 minutes.





April 20th  

Walked my dog for 45 minutes 

April 22nd  

Went for a 30-minute walk 

April 24th 

Raked leaves for an hour 

April 26th 

Walked my dog for 30 minutes 


Step 4: At the end of the week, write a short reflection on how you felt after reaching your goal.


Give this a try, if you like, and next week we will carry on with the next task, a bit of interesting reading!




This week for Math, I have assigned a 16-question review sheet of some of the concepts we have covered so far. You can do all 16 questions, or only some of them. I will share the answers with you at the end of the week. To find the 16-question review sheet, here are the steps:


1.  Go to the top of this page where it says Wiki, Pages & Files, Users and Settings.

2.  Click on "Pages & Files".

3.  Click on "Math Review April 20th".

4.  You may have to click on "Download" in order for the document to save on your computer.

5.  To get back to the main homework page, click on "Wiki".


A few things to remember when doing Math:


  • Show your work.
  • Use a highlighter.
  • Check your work over.
  • Be neat.
  • Label your work where appropriate.
