* Etoile de la semaine.......Ryan!

Sound of the week "U".

Words of the week:

1. cube - cube
2. jupe - skirt
3. plume - feather
4. sur - on
5. brune - brown (feminine)
6. lune - moon

We have been working a lot on sentences with the following sentence starters:
- Je vois (I see)
- J'aime (I like)
- Il y a (there are)

* We also practice writing words that we don't see (we call it writing with our "ears").  We use what we know about the vowel sounds and syllables we have learned so far.
For example, words like to/ma/te, we clap the syllables and then spell each syllable sound.  This is also called "chunking up" or breaking the word up.  It helps us to become master spellers in french and it is the base that we will continue to build upon.
We write one "star" word with our dictée list every week and this word is a phonetically spelled word.

This week at school we have individual pictures being taken on Wednesday.  Polish the teeth, practice the smile and send in the photo envelopes with your photo choices by Wednesday.

On Friday, we will visit Mrs. Sawka's and the Gr. 5/6 haunted classroom. Please send in $2 for their fundraiser.

********** I HAVE POSTPONED OUR CLASS COOKIE/SNACK SALE UNTIL JANUARY !!!!  I figured the students wouldn't need any extra snacks the same week as Halloween.  Thank you for your understanding!!! ************************************

Étoile de la semaine - Molly !! 

This is a short week at school as the staff has a professional development day on Friday.

Today, we had a presentation about avalanche safety. Some kids even came away with safety whistles for their participation during the assembly. 

The sound of the week is ´o'  which is like when Santa Claus laughs, o, o, o!  The words are :
1. Zéro - zero
2. Moto - motorcycle 
3. Non- no! 
4. École - school 
5.  Bravo 
6. rose - pink

There is a cookie/snack sale this Thursday hosted by Madame Michelle's class . 

I am going to postpone the fall friendship soup for a week or so due to the busy week we are having ! 
Thursday, we will have a presentation in the gym for the dark sky festival. 

Be sure to scan the Seesaw QR code that was sent home on Friday which will take you to your child's digital portfolio. Let me know if this did not make it home and I can send you the code to access the app.

Happy Thanksgiving day-after!

There will not be a dictée evaluation this week. Rather, we will be reviewing in class the sounds that we have covered to date (a, e, i), as well as some of our sight words (un, une, des, le, la, les, l', mon, ma, mes, voici, est). 

Tomorrow, we will meet Hudson Ruddy for the first time.  Hudson is our Roots of Empathy baby that will visit our classroom once per month.

This Thursday, Mr. Auger's class will host a healthy snack sale and all treats cost a quarter.  The limit is 2 treats per students. 

There is a correction to make to make on the newsletter I sent home ... the individual photos will be taken on Wednesday, October 26 (not the 28th).  A reminder will be coming home closer to the date.
