__Les mathématiques autorégulées - about the Grade 6 math program__

**You are responsible for your own learning!**Each week the emphasis will be put on one concept. During the week students will be asked to complete a variety of assignments. At the end of each week, students will be given the opportunity to demonstrate their learning and understanding. Finally, at the end of each unit, students will write a unit test and complete a final assignment/project.

Students will be completing their work in journals, the consumable math book, extra practice worksheets, and via technology. These formats could vary somewhat throughout the course of the year. It is with utmost importance for students to stay organized so that they are able to learn to the best of their ability and so that they can make progress throughout their year.

The following information will explain the different components of the self-regulated math program:

– We begin the week with a whole-class lesson to teach the concept of the week. Students will be given time in class to build their understanding of the concept and practice the skill. We will also establish a goal for the week. By focusing on one concept per week, students can deepen their understanding before moving on to the next.__Monday__– Students will be working independently throughout the week to complete various tasks, based on a “scaffolded” math program. All students must complete the required assignments in each level before moving to the next one. This scaffolding permits them to meet grade level expectations, but also allows them to demonstrate a higher level of learning by completing assignments at a higher level. Students are highly encouraged to work at the “Accomplishing” and “Exemplary” levels. Throughout the week, students can also:__Tuesday to Thursday__- Be peer tutors
- Ask their teacher for mini-lessons when they feel they need additional help to understand the concepts.

– We will have weekly quizzes for students to demonstrate their understanding of the concept studied throughout the week. Students should be able to be successful with these quizzes if they put the time and effort into completing the required work throughout the week.__Friday__– Students are required to complete one entry per week in their math journals. As part of the math curriculum, students need to be able to communicate their learning. I encourage students to begin their journals at the start of the week and complete them by Thursday. They are responsible for handing them in each Friday. Please see the reverse side of this page for the necessary criteria pertaining to the journals.__Weekly math journals__- Each week students are required to work up to a minimum accuracy of 80% on the various IXL strands assigned.__IXL math__- Once a student has__At the end of each unit____fully completed one level__, they will be asked to scan the accompanying QR code dedicated to that level. Students can use the class iPads or their own device in order to complete this step. This must be completed BEFORE moving on to the next step.– Students are expected to spend around 20min nightly working on their math program. They can complete required assignments, review their notes, work on IXL math or even complete some challenge work. Spending some regular time at home on their math will ensure that students do not fall behind on their studies and teaches healthy work habits and time management.__Homework??__At the end of each unit, time will be given to complete revision questions and a final project__Review Week-__

*Self-Regulated Learning (SRL) refers to research and theory that has emerged since the mid-1980’s concerned with how students, “ … become masters of their own learning processes” (Zimmerman, 1998, p.1). A self-regulated learner is someone who is actively involved in maximizing his or her opportunity and ability to learn. This involves not only exerting control over cognitive activity (metacognition), but also developing metavolitional skills that enable the regulation of attitudes, environments and behaviours to promote positive learning outcomes.*__Math journals__~ How to set up your math journal:

**The math journal is simply one of many TOOLS that your teacher will use to evaluate your understanding and learning throughout the year. You need to make an effort to keep this journal neat and in good condition. It is important for you to complete one journal entry EACH WEEK.**** all subtitles underlined with a ruler **

- title of lesson

- le date – corner of page

- the weekly goal – can be copied down from Monday’s lesson

- 1 or 2 good examples (with solutions)
- these examples can be taken directly from the textbook, workbook or students can create their own questions.
- Students need to show all of their work – this means the calculations and steps they took to solving the problem.
- The answers to each question need to be clear.

- Reflection – reflection questions need to include enough detail to explain their thoughts. Some starter sentences could be (in French, of course)
- This week I learned….
- I am still unclear/uncertain about…
- I do not understand…
- Everything is good because…
