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.

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

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 ...
