Online French Reading

Good evening parents,

Your child temporarily has access to French novels online. I believe it will be available until the end of June. If he/she is looking for something new to read, please visit the following site.

All you will need is a password to access the novels. I gave the password today in class.

I was able to view the novels from my computer. I hope it works for you as well!

Have a great evening,


Needed Materials

Dear Parents,

Division 10 and Division 7 students (Ms. Anema’s class) will be working together on Friday. We are looking to gather some material for that day. I’ve already found quite a bit of supplies in my junk bins but I was wondering if you could help me collect the remaining items.

Here’s a Google Doc I created (click here). Please add your child’s name directly in the document if you can help us. Google Docs save automatically so you don’t need to worry about saving what you wrote.

Thank you in advance for your support!


Makey Makey

Two years ago, I bought six Makey Makey kits. Today was a good day as we were finally able to use them for the first time.

All students successfully completed their first task (see picture) and I really enjoyed watching them solve the challenges they encountered. A big thank you to Sacha for sharing his expertise with us!


Roedde House & Coding

Good afternoon parents,

I’m sure your child told you about this already but there were some unexpected changes just before our two week break and we were unable to visit the Roedde House Museum. This outing will now take place on Wednesday April 19 (morning only). I will be looking for one parent volunteer so if you are available that day, make sure to mention this on your child’s permission form which will be going home today.

As we had a bit of extra time in class that morning, and to make the best out of our day, the students, Anne and I did some coding together. I introduced them to a new app I discovered during a workshop I recently attended.

Here is some information, should you want to also do some of it at home with your child.

Apps to try:

One thing that I keep hearing when I attend workshops on coding is that there aren’t a lot of women who code. If your daughter is showing an interest in coding, this event may be for you.
