I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching each and every student over the past 30+ years. It was also wonderful to work with so many great colleagues at Z.P.S. and E.P.S./E.E.S. as well as throughout our school board and province in the FSL program.
Students, please keep in mind the poem by Joleen K. Fox that I shared with you yesterday:
Merci mille fois for all of your kind messages and hugs!! They mean so much. Here are just a few of them:
Sparky likes the costume you chose for him and really enjoyed all the attention you gave him! The hat drove him a little crazy but he had lots of fun.
Grade 5 & 6 students enjoyed some games of “Go Fish” this week using Halloween vocabulary. It gave them the opportunity to ask questions using intonation and practise answering in both the affirmative and negative.
Grade 3 science students will start building their toy next week in class. Each student took home the following information page today.
Grade 4 students are using resources like Bitsboard and their notebook to help them write simple sentences as they complete their pattern books in Google Slides. They are also learning how to search for images, copy and paste, and make French accents on the computer. Once they finish their project, they go on to the website “Àtantôt” to build vocabulary (in a game format).
Grade 5 students have been busy creating pattern books in Google Slides entitled, “C’est l’halloween! Qu’est-ce que tu vois?”. The stories are based on the book “Ours brun, dis-moi” by Éric Carle (Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?) and adapted by Lisa Robson and our students.
Students in grade 6 have each been busy writing a paragraph to describe the monster they have chosen.
Grade 4 students have begun to learn how to read French words. We will be focusing on helpful strategies. Today, we discussed pointing to each word as you hear it spoken on the CD, repeating each phrase after the CD, and the fact that letters are not pronounced the same in French as they are in English.
Jesse read the book entitled “La chatte de la ferme” to the grade 5 students today in 4/5 O.
