Due to OCDSB restrictions, I will no longer be able to use G+ to communicate with the parents. Maybe I will use this service to post public messages about interesting sites that I find here and there.

{Elmdale Gr. 3 EFI} 2013.09.04 Wednesday - Classroom News
Google Plus Update - Due to concerns from parents about safety for the students, there will not be anymore public postings about my class in G+.

Thank you very much for confirming your email addresses. I used Google Groups for years, but I switched to Google Plus a couple of years ago. YOU DO NOT NEED TO JOIN, but you have more options if you do. It may take a few days before we get things sorted out.  

Balanced Day
This was our first balanced day (my very first as well). I would say that students may need a little snack before the first nutrition break - one hand snack. In my class, students are allowed to eat fresh fruit and vegetable snacks at their desks throughout the day.  

We had a great day today. Here are some of the things we did:

- Students had an English class
- We had an assembly
- Students had their first music class
- We went to the gym with Mme Annie's class
- We started to work on a little booklet about the summer vacation.
- We reviewed addition in math.
- Oh, we did a bit of dancing:

La goutte - Le groupe swing
La Goutte

J'aime lire
We started our reading program - le "Club de lecture". This is optional. Students could try to read books they brought home or from any French book they may have at home. We will keep adding the minutes throughout the year. I will ask the students to show me their sheet every time they reach 100 minutes so that I can add their time to a chart. 

Have a nice evening!

Pierre

Gens du Pays (song by Gilles Vigneault)
Hymne du Quebec - national anthem of quebec

This song is quite meaningful to the Québécois. In fact, we often sing it in lieu of "Happy Birthday":

"Mon cher Daniel, c'est à ton tour
De te laisser parler d'amour
Mon cher Daniel, c'est à ton tour
De te laisser parler d'amour"
--------------------------------
"Ma chère Chantale, c'est à ton tour
De te laisser parler d'amour
Ma chère Chantale, c'est à ton tour
De te laisser parler d'amour"
