Welcome back!

BIENVENUE! 

Welcome back everyone who is returning to St Anne one grade older, and welcome also to new students joining us for the first time! 
It is my pleasure to be able to work together with you and your child this year as their French Immersion teacher. 

Here is where you will be able to find bi-weekly updates about our class happenings, helpful resources and links that can support learning at home, information about our homework system, as well as important dates and information. 

We will be starting off the year focusing on getting to know one another as learners and as classmates. We will begin by using our oral and written French to support this, and to help us establish the various strengths, interests, and areas of need within our classroom community. Though it can be challenging, I encourage all students (or parents) to share with me anything about themselves as learners and individuals that I can use to help make our classroom and environment best support everyone's learning.

Our first units in Science will be the Human Body for our 5s and Biodiversity for 6sIn our class, we will be centering our Science learning around inquiry, and hands-on learning possibilities whenever possible. Science unit assessment will generally consist of a short quiz or two, and a final project to be completed at school (as well as participation and knowledge shown in class work and experiments). 

In Social Studies we will begin by learning about Government and Responsible Citizenship (5s) and Interaction of Global Communities (6s).

We will be starting off The Arts with visual art. 

Tech: We will be often using both school and personal devices in order to support and expand our learning. Students who choose to bring their devices to school are expected to show responsibility and self-monitoring in using them only during designated times and in appropriate ways, or they will lose that privilege. 

Homework will be weekly, and will focus on supporting French development through consistency of exposure. Homework duotangs will be going home on Mondays, and will be due back the following Monday. To simplify things, students should leave this at home throughout the week. As always though, the more French that is watched, listened to, read and practiced at home will make ALL of the difference! For more information, go to the Homework tab!


Finally, as you will find in your child's agenda tomorrow afternoon, we have created a parent survey in order to hear from members of our extended class communities (you!). Parents have very important insight into their child's learning, and the more information we have, the better we can support all students. The survey can be found here

I hope we have a great year full of learning, laughing, and everyone giving their 100%!
