Vocabulary – April 20

A teacher friend introduced me to Quizlet two weeks ago. It is a great tool to practice new vocabulary and I hope to create new lists on a regular basis. I like that there are various ways to review the vocabulary learned.

Here’s a new list I created today, after our Social Studies/Language Arts period. The students and I started reading a French novel about residential schools this morning and many new words came up.

Visit to JQ

SFU is now over until May 8 and I think I owe you a few pictures.

These were taken during our last visit to Ecole Jules Quesnel. Mr.D, Mme Deborah and myself have applied for an inquiry grant and are very lucky to get 6 days worth of release time. Our question, which was approved by the VSB, is as follows:

How can three teachers from an East side and a West side school draw on their respective communities to respond to and meet students’ diverse academic and social-emotional learning needs?

We will be sharing our observations with other teachers from the school board at the end of May. I will let you know when I know more about it.

In the meantime, here is something I wrote as part of my SFU course (click on the red link below). I felt inspired to write about this new inquiry after our JQ friends visited us for the first time back in January.
