The sound of the week is "é" - this e with and accent aigu makes the "eh" sound. The words that we chose for our spelling dictée are:
1. fée (fairy)
2. née (born)
3. bébé (baby)
4. zéro (zero)
5. oops- need to check on this one...
Just a reminder that this Friday is Institute Day for GYPSD staff, and the students have the day off!
We started our Roots of Empathy program yesterday with Beth LeBlanc from Family and Community Support Services. She spoke to us about the baby that we will be teaching us about growth, development, milestones, kindness and empathy! The baby's name is Elizabeth Borrow and she is 3 months old. She will come into our class every other Tuesday for the remainder of the year, as we observe her growth and changes. Thank you for returning your photo release forms for this program!
Just a note about picture day on Monday. As it is also our swim day, I have requested that our class have their photos taken in the morning before we swim (to avoid soggy photos!).
Have a great (remainder) of the week!
