Our Dictée this week is one of my favourites! Lots of new and interesting vocabulary (menuisier? clouer? raboter? atelier?). Reminder that our Examen de Dictée 4 and our Quiz: Ces/Ses/C’est will both occur on Monday as there is no school on Friday.
Attention Young Entrepreneurs (Enrichment)! You will be receiving an information package during Band on Thursday which will contain all the info you need to be ready and successful for the YE Fair on December 7.

We had a productive Monday. Despite it being a short week, we have a lot lined up to accomplish!
I had the grade 7s sign their names to the Hoodie document. Hopefully everyone has ordered or will order theirs. They will probably arrive after Winter Break but we’ll cross our fingers that they arrive sooner than that!
We will be doing some Remembrance Day activities this week in preparation for our Assembly on Thursday.
6mes Math- Feuille PGFC (pas #9)
7mes Math- Decimal Addition and Subtraction
7mes Vball Game @ Dorothy Peacock
mercredi- 7mes Vball Practice 8h00, Education Physique
Thankfully we didn’t have too much on the schedule today, plus hot lunch and double inside recess… it could have been a day.
We did some English in the morning, students are getting really good at identifying text features. After recess we split off for Enrichment. Unfortunately we don’t have it again for a few weeks since the next 2 Fridays are no school for students.
This afternoon we had our class party, a very chill afternoon of socializing, which everyone enjoyed.
Next week is a short week as Friday is Remembrance Day (Jour du Souvenir). We have a lot to fit into 3 days (with me), including finishing the FSAs, a school-wide write, and honouring Remembrance Day, something that is particularly important to me.
lundi- 7mes Math- one sheet of A and one sheet of B
Beaver Math Computing Challenge
7mes- Vball practice @2h45
Gr 6 and 7 volleyball games (7s @ Dorothy Peacock)
We continued our skill development in volleyball this morning. I am seeing some decent improvement! Hopefully we can do some game play next week!
We have started our examination of Non-fiction text features and in pairs today the students created a non-fiction text about bats which also had them label different parts of their text. You should ask them what they learned about bats today!
7mes- Math: for Monday -complete one of sheet of A and one sheet of B
We wrote our third Examen de Dictee this morning, our longest one yet. Hopefully the students are catching on to the system and will start to see some good progression in their results.
We have a verb quiz on Monday, the Blooket is available for practice.
We had Enrichment this morning, sounds like the different groups are starting to make some good progress in their respective areas. We have 4 more meetings this term.
This afternoon I tried something I’ve never done before. Students were given free range to create an art piece, using whatever medium they wanted, inspired by our current season, Halloween or how they were feeling today. I am so happy to report that the 40 minutes they had were really used well, and the art pieces that were/are being completed are amazing. Students used a variety of mediums and were inspired by different things, and had some really good conversations about what they were making and doing and seeing etc. I am honestly not surprised with this group, but I am so happy that it went well. The students will be completing a self-reflection on their art piece next week, which will be used to decide a proficiency for this task. Once all the pieces are installed in our ‘gallery’, I will share a pic. But I did snap one of everyone engaged in their work for you.
Spooktacular is this evening! For everyone attending, have a wonderful time!
It was so nice to see so many of you this afternoon and evening! I think we had a lot of really constructive and purposeful chats to set us up for success the rest of the term. It was also super nice meeting so many of you, I love making connections with new families (and of course reconnecting with previous families as well!).
vendredi- No School
lundi- Quiz Refaire À/A/As (for anyone who got EVA or Presque Maitrisé)
