May 1st update

Dear parents,

 

We’ve had a positive return to school after a restful Easter break.  Here are a few things happening in the classroom in the next few weeks.

 

·         We’ve been collaborating with M. Garreau, a publisher, on a writing project.  M. Garreau has been guiding us through a story writing and editing process.  He will chose 2 student’s writing pieces to be included in a book of student writing.  Those students will receive $20 for the publishing rights.  The second draft of these stories is due Monday.  Students have been given ample class time to complete this so I’m not anticipating that there should be too much work to be done at home.

·         We’ve been working on a book report this month.  Students have been reading short French novels and have been given an outline to complete.  Once completed, the students will use the outline to create a video review of their books which we will share with other classrooms.  The book reports and videos are due May 10th.

·         Students have been studying current events in Social Studies using a resource called Notre Monde.  Most students are well on their way to having this complete.  I’d like these submitted by Friday, May 10th as well.  These are great resources that count for both French and Social Studies marks.

·         Students are working on calculating the area of various geometric shapes in math.  

 

If you have any questions, or you feel your child may need extra time or help to complete these assignments, contact me and I’ll be happy to make arrangements to extend the due dates. 

 

Merci!

Clayton
