Bienvenue à la 3e année! 2022-2023

Posted: May 13, 2020

The last list of words I added was the list of words your child was introduced to in Grade 1 and then reviewed in grade 2. 
This is the list of new words introduced in Grade 2, which will be reviewed again next year. 
These are sight words. Students do not need to practice spelling every word correctly. They should be familiar with them and be able to read them.

We did not have tme (before home learning) to cover most of the words on the list. So only tackle this list in small chunks (7-10) words a week, if your child is looking for a challenge after they have mastered the first list of sight words.

Mason wrote a great sentence with a really nice drawing to tell us one of the activities he has been enjoying.

I was so glad to see that everyone was able to pick up their belongings yesterday! I really wish I could've seen you all in person!

One important thing coming up this weekend is Mother's Day! "La fête des mères"
I will post some helpful vocabulary in case kids want to make a French or bilingual Mother's day card.
 - Along with some fun subtraction activities, creating things for mom is on our Home Learning Activities grid for the week. So don't forget to check it out!

Another note: I shared a powerpoint presentation, found here, that Mme Sharpe had created with the pronounciation of all 157 sight words from our first list. This will come in handy if your child chooses to practice those oh so important words! I did send out a personalized list to each student.

Finally, I love having little chats with 'my kiddos' and I also love seeing photos and videos of what you've all been up to! So, please send those along any time! (and let me know if you'd like to share them on the "Taking it to the Max" page!

Miss you all! Have a great week and weekend!

Thanks to Mme Sharpe for creating this file! She recorded herself saying all 157 words on the 1st list of "les mots fréquents". 
If your child isn't sure about one of their sight words, look for that slide and have a listen. Knowing these words creates a very important foundation piece for successful reading, so practice a little at a time and try to make it fun!

Happy Monday!
 I hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather we had yesterday! I know I did! Hopefully we will have many more nice days to come, so that everyone can get outside often!

A couple of things for this week!
1. The "Number Rumble" math competition is over, but you can still play to keep your math skills sharp! Your passwords will be good until June 30th to use M-F between 7am-2pm. 

2. We started the competition with only 20 days left and we ended up finishing 32nd place out of almost 300 classes! Way to go guys and gals! You rock! AND because our class was in the top 10 most active classes on the site for the last week, we won a class prize. I'm not sure what it is yet, but that's amazing! 

3. By now, you all should have received an individualized list of sight words that you had not yet mastered. Focus on those words but practice the whole list if you want (especially when doing the weekly activities and if you want to write sentences/stories!). Get creative and practice your words in fun ways! These are so very important to help with your reading.

4. There is a website link at the bottom of this week's learning activity grid. Storybooks Canada. On this site you can choose a level and a language and begin reading. 
My suggestion is:
          - Ensure the language is set to French
          - Start with level 1 books and move up as they become easy.
          - Listen to the story at least once, then go back and try to read it with the audio off.
          - If you feel you are ready, attempt to read the story (or page) first and then press play to check your pronounciation.

5. If you did a moose drawing from last week's activities, don't forget to put it up in your window so the Moose Hunters can spot it!

6. Check out this week's fun learning opportunities here

Earth day craft!

In the video she uses a piece of Bristol board but you could easily scale it down on a smaller piece of paper
and you could even add it to a stick and make a whale puppet! I'd love to see if anyone tries it!

Happy Earth Day!
Some things you can do, everyday for the planet:
Cut back on electricity (only use what you absolutely need.)
Reduce the amount of water you use (shorter showers, use a cup or very quick bursts of the tap to brush your teeth.)
Reduce, reuse, recycle (in that order!)

Family activity suggestions:
(when it is safe to do so)
- Clean up litter in an area around your home/neighborhood.
- Plant a garden of vegetables you like to eat.
- Plant wildflowers for the butterflies and the bees!

I hope you are all staying healthy, having some fun and doing some learning!
I really love chatting with you all and will be in touch again real soon! 

  • For our next conversation, I'd love to hear about your favorite thing you've done so far, since we've been out of school!
     - Est-ce que tu fais de l'exercise amusant? 
     - Est-ce que tu as joué des jeux avec ta famille?
     - Est-ce que tu as fait des bricolages ou des pièces d'arts que tu aimes beaucoup?
    Laissez-moi savoir!

Important reminders:

  • Every Monday you can check out the week's home learning activities for K-2 students here. They are really fun! 
    (As French immersion students you should do your best to attempt some of the activities in French.)
  • If possible, have a little chat with classmates (on the phone or through video chats), siblings, parents, or even your pets & stuffed animals can listen!
              - This week: try to discuss what is for supper and if you like it or not.
  • Keep on doing the great work on the 10monkeys math site. Click here and log in to play. (I can send the email with log in info, if you deleted the email I sent a few weeks ago.) NOTE: The activities will be accessible until June 30th but the chance to win a license for our whole school to use the program ends Friday at 2pm, so lets get us a ton of points to get us in the top 20!
  • Try to listen to some French radio or watch French videos/movies/tv shows.
  • Lastly, practice your sight words! I have uploaded the list from grade 1 (click here). We spent the first half of the year reviewing this list. These words should be solid for next year! I will put up the grade 2 words we did discuss in class in a couple of weeks. I have or will be sending you a personalized list of words your child had difficulty with and should focus on.

If you want even more learning ideas, send me an email, I am looking at some apps and websites that could be useful for your child, but don't work too hard. These are different times and no one expects the children to work like they would at school. Read together, be active and try to keep your brain sharp for when we get together again!

Chat soon!

Here are the words your child should know very well!

These words make up most of the words in the lower leveled books your child is reading. (and a large portion of ANY French text.) So they are very important.
Students can use these words to write sentences or make up stories too.

Brennan and I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
