To parents of grade 1 Hitchman: With the wild fire devastation happening across Australia, our class will be adopting a Koala as an act of kindness and to create an awareness of our global citizenship. We have just completed a unit on wild animals as well which ties well into this initiative. A...

Welcome back everyone! 

I hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas Break and are ready for 2020! 

Here is the homework for the week! 

Tuesday: First day back for students. Happy New Year!

Homework sent home for the week. We will be getting back to our usual routine.

-     Sound: Read the sound poem “R” and the sound words 1-2 times aloud. The Sound is on the teacher page. I have also sent a flipbook of their sounds they have done so far in their homework folders. Students will be adding a new sound every week. They can do the action and say the sound when practicing. This is great review for their sounds as well. The flipbooks are to be returned every Monday to add the new sound and to be returned to the class at the end of the school year.

-     Reading: Students are to read their new books 1-2 times aloud each night. Students will have books on food in their homework bag they can read as well as a New Year’s Resolution book for this week. Encourage them to look at the picture, follow along with their finger and read aloud. I will be sending sound books home as well so please send these back daily, as I will be giving them to different students.

Wednesday: Show and Tell: I know students are very eager to talk about Christmas, so tomorrow all students can bring in something they think is special to them they have received over the holiday.This item has to fit in their book bag as well and can not be technology incase it breaks at school. Students will be asked to describe their item and explain why it is special to them, so if you could please go over the item with them before they bring it to school, that would be appreciated.

Thursday:  Gym\Music class and Library


Friday: Weekly Home work is due back. New sight words will begin next week.

Our primary students would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas & a wonderful New year! We will see you all in 2020!

We had a wonderful time at Losier hall spreading christmas cheer and singing carols to the residents. I was very impressed with the empathy and respect my students displayed while visiting and speaking with the residents! Wonderful job!

·        There is no homework this week as it is a very busy time before the holidays and there are many activities going on for students. The only thing I would like students to do, is read one of their French browsing books each night this week to work on their fluency and vocabulary. If you would like books sent home to read throughout the holiday break as well, please leave me a note in the agenda and I will send them on Friday. 


·        This week is SPIRIT week!  The theme days are below! Student participation is encouraged! We will also be collecting Food Bank Items. The class with the most donated will receive a point for Spirit Week.

Monday: Gym and Music class (Concert rehearsal)

Tuesday: Christmas Sweater/shirt Day

SKATING:We will be going skating from 9:25- 10:05. Parents and guardians are welcome to join us and help tie laces. A reminder that anyone on the ice is required to wear skates.

Students should be starting to bring in costumes for their animal videos as well

Wednesday: Dress up Day

Christmas Concert: The concert will begin at 9am in the gymnasium. (storm date is Thursday)

Thursday:  School Colours Day

Friday: PJ/Athletic Wear Day

Last day before the Christmas holidays. This is a full day for students. My students have won a class prize for working together and speaking French so I will be bringing cupcakes to celebrate. If your child cannot eat a cupcake, please let me know so I can get something else for them.

I want to take this time to wish all my students and their families a wonderful and restful holiday break. It has been a very busy first term, and students have worked very hard in grade one, learning a new language! I hope they enjoy this very well deserved break with their families!

Joyeux Noël et bonne année! 

Mme Hitchman
