September went by so quickly. The students have been getting used to their new routines, participating in many oral activities, learning new grammatical structures, and working in a variety of written activities. Each day in class, the children are invited to take part in discussions, to share information or to answer simple questions using familiar vocabulary. Your child's participation is very important in order to continue developing his or her French oral language skills. Active participation not only develops vocabulary and sentences structure skills but greatly assists in boosting self-confidence all while using the French language.
In Reading, the students are learning to read on a regular basis from a variety of sources such as their reading duo-tang "Lecture" (vocabulary words, texts, songs, poems....all already presented in class), French library books or other materials.
This month, we will start our Social Studies unit about First Native in Ontario, Premières Nations en Ontario. The students will be involved in a variety of activities (oral and written) and will explore how the First Native used to live (food, shelters, lifestyle) and how we are still using today so many things they passed on to us.
Thank you for your continued support.
I would like to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving! Bonne fin de semaine de l'Action de Grâce!
