French Reading – Online

The students have access to Info-Jeunes. I used some of the money we received from the Federal Government to cover the cost of this subscription.

I think Info-Jeunes is an amazing resource. It follows current events and for those who have more difficulty in French, there is also a recording of the article that the students can play while reading. I just tested it on my iPad and it works on it as well.

As I’m aware that not all students have the same rules around computer usage at home, I haven’t asked anyone to do it as homework.

If you would like to have access to your child’s account, please add a comment to this blog post to let me know. I will give you your child’s log in information.

Thank you!

Book Club – Final Assignment

The students will be exploring stop animation during the next few weeks. They will use the Stop Motion app to present a scene from the book they read during Book Club.

Stop Motion is a free app so if you have an iPad at home I encourage your child to download it. I also have access to Stop Motion Studio Pro but I much prefer to use the free version at the beginning as it has less features and has everything we will need to create the projects.

Here’s a project I worked on with a small group of teachers many years ago, when iPads weren’t available. You should hear my voice at around the 0:49 mark. Your child should be able to recognize me. 🙂

Skating

Good afternoon parents,

We will be going skating on Thursday morning, between 9am and 11:30am. I sent a permission form home such a long time ago (it was before the Winter Break) that I completely forgot to confirm with those offering to help.

If you happen to be available during that morning, please confirm by adding a comment to this blog post. I will confirm with you immediately.

My apologies again.Next time, I will wait until closer to the date to hand in permission forms.

Annie
