The Creative Classes

Integrating creativity, style and technology into the classroom….where creativity comes to play

Problem solving conclusion


Way to go 7B! Students showed some great problem solving strategies with our flipped videos.  Looking forward to the New Year and more awesome problem solving!


Problem Solving Questions


Wordle: Problem Solving

 My students came up with some great questions based on our fourth math video.  I chose several questions for the students to answer. The four problems based on student responses are listed below.  Well done 7B!

Problem One: What is the pattern that is being created? What would be the 20th term if this patterned continued?

Problem Two: How tall would the tower be after 70 blocks are put in place? Each block is 5 cm in height. What would the area be ?

Problem Three: If it took 45 seconds to place 3 blocks on the tower, how long would it take to place 11 blocks?

Problem Four: Lily wants to build a tower that reaches the ceiling, how many blocks will she use, and how long will it take her to complete the tower?

So Creative!


I love TED talks – they can be powerful and inspirational, I saw this on my twitter feed and just love the creativity in this video.  I hope it gets my students creative juices following as much as it did for me! Happy Friday!

Inquiry Based Learning


As we (7B and 7/8A)  have been reading Freak the Mighty our students have come up with various issues in the novel – they are now exploring the issues in their own inquiries! I’m very excited for how they are going to take these ideas public.

Problem Solving


This week I decided to put a different spin on our flipped video.  Students will have to watch the scenario and come up with their own problem solving question.  I’m excited to see what they come up with for Friday!

Dogs, Babies and Floors


Here is the third math flip for this week.  Please go to Google Classroom and respond to the question.  Please make sure you expand and question your classmates responses.  Fantastic job on your problem solving last week.  Apparently Hunter eats a lot of food – about $1500 worth for the year.

Flips for the week


Below is our math video for the week.  This time Hunter (my lab) makes an appearance.  Make sure you go to our Google Classroom to comment.   Well done 7B for the fantastic problem solving that you did last week!

Real Life Math


Here is my first flipped math video – thanks for the great idea Mrs. Tyrer!

Flip Videos for the Week


We continue to look at descriptive writing, and to continue with that theme here are two more literary devices that can be used in your writing

Be sure to go to Google Classroom and add into the discussion after you have watched the videos.  Stay tuned for your math video which will be posted later this week.


Descriptive Writing



Today is the day that we examine the literary devices in our writing.  Students will be using the information that saw in their flip – Can’t wait to see their writing today.
