Bonjour tout le monde! Hello to all my grade one students! 

We are now beginning Home learning for your child, and I want all my parents and students to know that I am here to support you in any way I can. You can contact me by email at if you have any questions, concerns or clarification. 

Also, I will have login and passwords for each student for some of the math and reading websites, so if you are able to email me, I will be able to send these logins to you for your child to use.

We will be focusing on Literacy and numeracy; however, I will also be including some web links and documents for Art, mindfulness and social/emotional learning as the weeks continue. These are all optional and suggested activities as well so please choose what best suits your child and your home situation.

Thank you very much for all your support during these unprecedented times. It is suggested that students work maximum one hour each day on the suggested activities, this includes reading for 10-15 minutes per day. Students are also encouraged to get outside for some fun play! 

Remember we are all in this together!

Below you will find the following links for literacy and numeracy activities. These links can also be found under “Web links” on my teacher page. I will also continue to upload the SOUND of the WEEK every Monday for the remainder of the year along with new sight words students can work on creating at home.

In recap: Students should be:

  • reading 10-15 minutes each day using one of the sites listed or a french book at home
  • Following along with the sound of the week
  • choosing three activities a week from the Board.
  • exploring one of the math numeracy sites each day



Math Card Games for Kids… This site has a free resource for Math Card Games that will help build your child’s number sense using a deck of cards:


Website with cartoons, games, videos, and colouring activities in French for kids:


Your child can also use this 3 in a row choice board to choose three activities to do each week. I will upload a new board each week. Students can choose three in a row. They can also complete more of the board activities if they would like.

Read 10-15 minutes and play outside daily


Again, I want you to know that I am here to support your child in any way I can. Please email me with any questions you may have. If your child would like to send me a picture of anything they have completed as well, I will be posting pictures to my teacher page! 

Happy learning!

Our Grade 1 and Grade 6 buddies had a great time creating their cardboard STEAM challenge sleds in the Maker Space and testing them out on the hill! They also had a chance to test out the tobaggons that were given to each school...
