Finally June!!

Hello everyone!

We can't believe we're just a week away from the last day of school! This year flew just flew by! We had a busy week, everyone is super excited and happy to welcome the warm summer weather and even more excited for the summer break!

In Grade 1:
-We learned about animals (names, what they eat, where they live, characteristics...)
-We played games to practice saying full sentences to describe the animals.

In Grade 2:
-We continued to write complete sentences about animals.
-We learned to write sentences with 2 consecutive verbs.

In Grade 5:
-We continued to work on the new tense "le futur simple" (future tense).

Note for grade 5: Grade 5 students received a package of worksheets for the summer break. It is optional of course, but I strongly encourage them to complete over their summer break. It is a group of easy concepts, some are basics and some are revisions. 

Have a great weekend!

Happy long weekend!

Hello everyone!

I hope you had a great week, it definitely was one of the busiest and most dynamic with the huge arts night production! We couldn't be happier with how it went, the students pulled it off very well and made everyone super proud!

We did get some work done in the last 2 days:

In Grade1:
-We reviewed the art vocabulary.
-We started with our new unit: animals and habitats.

In Grade2:
-We reviewed how to use the negative sentence structure to express likes and dislikes.
-We reviewed the building materials (brique, paille, bois).
-We started learning some opposites and how to use them in sentences.

In Grade 5:
-We finalized our researches.
-Some groups presented their research.

I hope you all have a wonderful long weekend!
