Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend with your families! Attached is the home learning activities for the week! Remember to check your emails as well for any printables I may send along as well as the invite for tomorrow's session! 

In Math, we continue to focus on measurement this week, but students are reminded to work on their DreamBox Math and work on counting to 100 in french. Skip count by 2,5,10 as well and start at a different number when counting to 100. (ex: Start at 28 and count forwards or backwards).

I love seeing all the learning happening at home as well! Keep sending those pictures and videos and I will be posting them to the teacher page!

Remember I am only an email away!

Hi everyone!! Some exciting news from our school district! They are having a VIRTUAL Olympics!

Below is the link to the Virtual Olympics of Track and Field and other athletic events that you can track and put in scores to win as a school.

It would be SO nice to see the whole class register and see if we can win! It would be a great way to come together as a class considering we are all physically apart.

Bon lundi!! Happy Monday! I hope all the moms had a wonderful Mother's day!

We are now on to week 6 of home learning and I hope all my families have settled into a routine! I miss my students very much and I love hearing from them each week! I also send weekly emails to everyone, but have heard that some are finding them in their "Junk" emails, so if you haven't been seeing them, please check your junk mail! :) 

I have added a few websites to my weblinks that you can check out as well and I also my class to Razkids reading website so that they can use it until the July. The log-in instructions are on the document attached. 
Also, please go over the other documents attached along with the choice board! 

Again, if you have any questions you can email me at or if you would like to share any pictures of students learning at home for me to share to the teacher page! I would love to see them!

Hi Parents! 
The french website "Je lis" is experiencing issues with their audio portion for the books, however students can still read them. Until the audio part is back up and running, students can also use "ensemble chez nous" website:
This is a great website with narrative and informative books that students can read along with the audio or listen first and then read the book themselves. 
Happy reading! Bonne lecture!

Have a good Monday, everyone! Happy Monday! 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Attached are the documents for Week 5 of home learning! I hope you are all getting adjusted to home learning and getting into a routine. Primary students will be able to pick up their belongings on Tuesday from 9-12, however any students with an older sibling will find their bag with their older brother/sister's bag. I also included a Mother's Day and Father's day printable craft and card that students can colour and work on along with a Math booklet in their yellow folders. 

I have also included a few new websites that are great for reading, writing and word/sound work in french! If you have any questions about them or are having trouble, don't hesitate to ask! 

I also included a weblink for mini yoga that students can do to keep up with their physical wellness! Don't forget to check out their music and Phys.ed teacher's pages as well! 

Have a great week!

The following two documents are also great resources that students can use.

One is an educational support calendar for the month of May and the other is a document with activities students can do outside including a good estimation activity with a Math link.

Have fun!

Bonjour tout le monde!! 

I hope you all had a wonderful, sunny weekend! The weather is starting to feel like Spring! I hope you will be able to do some home learning outside this week with some of the activities provided. 

  • Just a reminder that I will be posting my sound of the week every Monday. These are all new sounds for students, and there will be a youtube video attached to watch as well to help learn these new sounds. 
  • I received great feedback about my videos I uploaded, so I will be creating more this week! Keep an eye out! 
  • Another reading site students can use is They have great french books and is a great resource. If you would like a username or password and log in, please send me an email. 
  • I noticed many students are doing a wonderful job on DreamBox Math! Keep it up! I already noticed some receiving badges in both "Je lis" reading website and Dreambox Math! Bravo les amis! Students can read a book this week from the website and draw a new book cover from the attached document as well! 

Bonjour les amis! 

I hope you are having a great day! Today is Earth Day and I have included a few activities you can do to celebrate! Don't forget to check out the Earth day songs I posted on Monday on my teacher page! 

  1. Paint rocks blue and green with a saying on them "Jour de la terre" ou "J'aime ma planète!" 
  2. Plant a flower or seeds to start a garden for the summer. 
  3. make an Earth collage with blue and green coloured paper. Template attached. 
  4. Pick up litter in your neighbourhood.
  5. Make a science experiment with a ziplock bag to see how evaporation works! 

I also attached a fun earth day poem that students can fill out and read! The answer key is attached as well, and I would love to hear them read it! 

Have fun and be safe! If you do get to complete any activities and are able to take a picture or video, I would love to see it! 

Enjoy! Mme Hitchman

Here are a couple songs for Earth day, which is on Wednesday April 22nd! 

A challenge I am putting out there to my students is to create their own little song for Earth day and send a video! They can just create a few sentences and repeat them! Have fun!
