November newsletter

Dear Parents,

Here is the newsletter for the month of November. It is starting to get wet and cold. Please make sure your child is properly dressed for outside play (warm coat, boots, gloves). If your child is wearing boots please send inside shoes. Boots are great for outside but can be very uncomfortable to sit cross-legged on the carpet for lesson time.

French Language Arts

Dictée:

on/om, an/am, en/em, in/im

Grammar:

We are focusing on er verbs and will be starting avoir and être conjugation. We are also focusing on plural nouns and verbs and how to make appropriate accords and conjugations.

Reading:

We have been focusing on reading with accuracy. In that I mean decoding (sounding out) multi-syllabic words, pronouncing words correctly using French sounds and being aware of silent endings (silent –ent for verbs, silent s for plural nouns and other silent letters in words).

Math

We are finishing up our place value unit early next week. In this unit your child was practicing skip counting by using Canadian money. Please continue to have your child practice this very important life skill. It will help with skip counting (and later for multiplication) and it will give them greater independence when going shopping.

The next unit we will be focusing on is Addition and Subtraction for 3 digit numbers.

Social Studies

We will be learning out the community of Richmond and comparing how this community has changed over the years. Richmond used to be a farming community and has greatly changed to becoming a very populated city. The area of Anderson has changed so much since I started here back in 2001!
