Our class went outside to do a Shape hunt around the playground looking for 2D and 3D shapes! Students also tested out if the 3D shapes would roll, slide and/or Stack! Bravo les amis!

This is a great halloween song to work on halloween vocabulary! 
Here is the other version of this song:

Just a few reminders:
  • The school will be providing fruit & veggie trays for all classes on the 29th for our Halloween celebrations. As per Covid regulations, we can not have treats sent in on that day.
  • October 29th is Orange and Black day. Students are encouraged to wear orange and Black! 
  • No school for students on the 30th as it is a PD day for teachers (Happy Halloween!)
  • The Primary classes normally have a Costume Parade for students, but because we are not able to send in costumes this year due to Covid restrictions, I have decided to have VIRTUAL Costume Parade for my students!! This means, any student who would like to dress in their costume at home and take either a photo or video of them in their costume can send it to my email
I will put it all together in a slide show so that each student can describe their costume at school to their classmates. Every year I use this as a great writing opportunity and students seem to really enjoy it! If your child would like to participate, please send me the picture of video of them in costume by this Sunday so that I can prepare the slide show. 
Happy Halloween!!

Happy Monday! I hope you all enjoyed the beautiful fall weather today! I am so impressed with how many students began using new French words today when they arrived! Keep up the great work grade 1!
Here is the homework for the week:
Lecture: Students received a new book today. They are to practice reading the book at least three times this week. I put songs on my teacher page to help. Students can also read on "Je lis Je lis". They are to colour in their pumpkins on the back of their home folder.
Les sons: Students can listen to the sound poem on my teacher page, and sing along with the song while doing the action. The sound is "O" "AU" this week. They are to touch their head when they hear that sound. Their sound words are also in their sheet protector this week.
Les Mots: Their 5 new sight words are in their word wallets. They are to practice saying them aloud. One fun activity at home is to tape them to their bedroom wall at night and shut the light off. Get them to shine a flashlight to each word and say the word!
Les Maths: I will be starting to send a Math wallet home on Tuesdays. There will be one task in it each week. The task will align with the math outcomes this year. Students can do this once a week or more if they prefer. They are to continue using Zorbits at least 20 minutes per week. I opened up another part in their worlds for shapes as we are working on shapes in class.
*Student Photos went home today! Please check their homework bags for their beautiful photos!
