Étoile de la semaine - Molly !! 

This is a short week at school as the staff has a professional development day on Friday.

Today, we had a presentation about avalanche safety. Some kids even came away with safety whistles for their participation during the assembly. 

The sound of the week is ´o'  which is like when Santa Claus laughs, o, o, o!  The words are :
1. Zéro - zero
2. Moto - motorcycle 
3. Non- no! 
4. École - school 
5.  Bravo 
6. rose - pink

There is a cookie/snack sale this Thursday hosted by Madame Michelle's class . 

I am going to postpone the fall friendship soup for a week or so due to the busy week we are having ! 
Thursday, we will have a presentation in the gym for the dark sky festival. 

Be sure to scan the Seesaw QR code that was sent home on Friday which will take you to your child's digital portfolio. Let me know if this did not make it home and I can send you the code to access the app.

Happy Thanksgiving day-after!

There will not be a dictée evaluation this week. Rather, we will be reviewing in class the sounds that we have covered to date (a, e, i), as well as some of our sight words (un, une, des, le, la, les, l', mon, ma, mes, voici, est). 

Tomorrow, we will meet Hudson Ruddy for the first time.  Hudson is our Roots of Empathy baby that will visit our classroom once per month.

This Thursday, Mr. Auger's class will host a healthy snack sale and all treats cost a quarter.  The limit is 2 treats per students. 

There is a correction to make to make on the newsletter I sent home ... the individual photos will be taken on Wednesday, October 26 (not the 28th).  A reminder will be coming home closer to the date.

Today was a HUGE success at the swimming pool!  The students had great stamina and energy getting there at such an early time...this is not an ideal hour for the younger grade levels, and I was sooo happy with the kids today! Yay grade one!

Also, a huge thanks to Janeen and Annie Rose for sharing their family's "pommier" (apple tree).  The students each were able to pick an apple off the tree and eat it right then and there...that was such an authentic experience...MERCI la famille Keelan-Crabbe!

The dictée from last week was a great success for all!  Let's keep up the great work and practice as we build upon our grade one vocabulary and sounds!

Here are our words for this week:

Sound of the week:  "e" (Action cue: the boy who forgets everything and says, e, e, e,")
1. me - myself
2. le - the (masculine)
3. se - him/herself
4. je - I
5. de - of/ from/to
6..te - yourself

Some photos from last week at school:

The "rocks and Rings" curling program was introduced to the school, last week.  The kids loved learning to curl!

It was nice meeting with you at last week's "Meet the Teacher" evening.  If you weren't able to attend but would still like a classroom tour hosted by your favorite grade one student, please stop by any day after school.

Today, the students wrote their first 6 words for their spelling test on Friday.  I sent some alphabet sheets home for them to practice building their words with.  Cut them into separate squares and then keep them in a Ziploc bag to be used for practicing with for the remainder of the year.

This week's words are:
1. ma - my
2. la - the
3. ta - your
4. sa - his/her
5. ami - friend
6. papa - dad
Practice hard and have fun word-building!

Thursday there will be a Healthy Snack Sale at recess....bring in those quarters.

Friday is a Professional Development day for the staff and the students are dismissed at the lunch bell.  There is no lunch program on this day.

Thanks to those of you who returned your activity bags this morning!  The kids should have all brought home a fresh activity today.
 Photo booth photos!!!
Terry Fox!!
 Have a great third week back at school!

Welcome Back!

Welcome to the 2016/2017 school year!

This is the blog where I will post to every Monday after school to let you know the happenings of the week, as well as the spelling words of the week (not started yet.)

This week at school:

* Thursday at recess - Healthy Snack sale...students may buy 2 items at 25 cents a piece at recess time.

* Thursday from 5:30-6:30 is Meet the Teacher in room 3.  Come to the classroom and see where all of the grade one action happens.  Feel free to ask questions about scheduling, homework and anything else at this time!

* Friday from 2 - 3 the school is participating in the Terry Fox run around the school block.  Come and watch, participate or pass out popsicle sticks to the runners!

Last week on Friday I handed out a "Back to School Care Kit" to remind the students of some of the rules and routines we learned last week during our first week together in first grade.  I forgot to write the meaning of the Band-Aid and the jewels...ooops! 
So, I explained to the students today that the Band-Aid reminds us that I can help, or other adults can help when they are hurt and/or need help on the inside or out.
The jewels remind the students that they are the shining jewels in our class and the school!

Thanks and have a great week!

Reminder : that tomorrow our class will be visiting the French Book Fair in the library at 11:30.  If you feel comfortable sending your child in with some spending money for making purchases at the sale, please do so!  Please know that there are other items available for purchase, such as, pencils, erasers, bookmarks and posters.  Join us in the library at 11:30 if you are available for some shopping!

There will not be a spelling dictee test this week as we have a shortened week as well, I am away this Friday.  Keep encouraging the reading books to be coming to class and I will do my best to read with each student every day.

The students had a great experience with Discover E Science today in the class.  We learned all about bugs and their properties.  Also, the students got to take home their very own marshmallow bug to share with you at home!!  Science is such fun!

Have a great week!7
