We started the day with a magician/circus presentation in French too by a gentleman from Edmonton. He will be with us tomorrow too for carnaval. Kids enjoyed the show and can't wait for the workshops tomorrow. They will get to learn some jugling tricks and some magic as well. We will have activities for Carnaval too in the afternoon so that will be fun. Come and join us parents!!! I used to look after the outside activities in the past and now parent are taking over. I know how much work is involved so a big thank you parents for doing that. C'est beau les parents (double clap!!).
We had the lady from Science fair come today. She spoke in front of the grade 4, 5 and 6 for what should be the last time before the big March event. The timeline is attached on the reminder section on the homework page.
We had Mme. Karine too our French monitor come in to do a little synonyms vs antonyms competition. The timing was prime since we had worked on that no later than a couple days ago with our novel study. However, the kids had a bit too much sugar already and took too many 'liberties' with Mme. Karine so I had to step in and discontinue today's activity. Instead, we brushed up on our imparfait et present tense conjugation for a bit... Unfortunate les amis, that was a cool game...
Then after our conjugation session we revisited about what happened and what we are going to do different next time. We are not going to blame it all on sugar are we... :) We then enjoyed some fun Valentine's treat and card sharing. More sugar... let me know parents if your kids were bouncing off the walls in the comment section... I am sure they will sleep well tonight once the sugar rush subsides...
Once last day before the vacation les enfants. Make sure to wear your favorite lumberjack plad shirt tomorrow. Make sure boys your beards are full grown too!!
Ton prof, signing out
p.s. We did our vocab quiz today. Our French song was a classic from the 80s. Coeur de loup... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rj5KA26EtNE This song was where it was at back then. It was so popular, a love song of course, but with some beat to it. Catchy and sweet, to this day, this song is THE song for so many couples who would go dancing to it, get married to it etc. etc. Put it on, crank it up and throw down some moves parents!!! Just like in the 80s... your moves can't be as bad as some of those moves back then :)
