Family Engagement and Literacy Session
Mrs. Desormeau and Ms. Girard recently hosted a Family Engagement and Literacy session in their ELKP classroom! Caregivers were shown the many different ways that reading and writing development are supported in the classroom through demonstrations by their teachers and children. Parents were given tools and tips to help them when reading and writing with their child at home. It was a wonderful turn out!
Here, family members participate in a shared reading lesson!
Ms. Girard demonstrated a literacy game that builds letter and word recognition skills.
Mme. Desormeau explains what "popcorn" words are!
Amelia demonstrated to her family how she uses her special reading finger to track text and read words. Of course, her special reading glasses help too!
Caleb loved reading to his Grandma!
Levi showed how he uses pictures to help when reading text.
Students were excited to get out their independent reading bins to read with their families.
At the end of the evening, families were treated to dinner!
Math Club Fraction Party
Every Tuesday and Thursday after school for the past several weeks, a dedicated group of students along with two special teachers, honed their Math skills by participating in various activities that pushed their thinking and reasoning skills, developed their problem solving capabilities and improved their communication in Math. What better way to celebrate the end of the program than to have a "Fraction Party". Thank you to Mrs. Louise Belisle and Mrs. Kim Belisle for planning fun and engaging Math tasks for these students!
Participants of the Math Club proudly hold their certificates.
