How was my little meeting with Allison from Cineplex you ask? Well, it went very well under the circumstances. We got some free movie adventures! Oui Monsieur! Everybody is feeling the economic crunch. Even a big time player like the Cineplex are narrowing down their sponsorships... We were able, thanks to the kids idea too, to squeeze out a few freebees a month so we should be happy. By the way parents, if you know a business owner that would offer cool incentives for our Reading Program, let me know, I will go visit them. Or, by all means bypass me and ask yourself and surprise us with some reading incentives!!!
The morning just blew by. Time is winding down but we are still plowing through our curriculum. We are doing very well right now in science and math. We like math don't we les amis!?! Right after Christmas, we shall begin our formal French presentations. I have not told the kids yet. It is usually the one kids love the most. Why you ask? Because they get to lie!!! That's right, actually, the better they lie, the best chance they have to win... That's right, it is called 'détecteur de mensonge'. Kids have to come up with 3 more or less believable stories that happened (or not) to them. However, one has to be false. They present their 3 stories with a poker face. Then, kids in the audience get to ask them questions and after 4 minutes, we vote on what we thought the lie was. The one who fools the most people wins. I get to vote too... that is fun! Détecteur de mensonge was a popular show in Québec when I was growing up, you can see an excerpt of an episode here with Mitsou. She was/is the equivalent of Madona for us in Québec. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHPwEmauEis The show would bring in celebrities from Quebec like signers, hockey players actors etc. Top caliber people too like Celine Dion, Patrick Roy, Macha Grenon etc.
Can tabs... kids have been bringing in some tabs every day. We have a few pounds I am sure. We can see McKenna here displaying one bag. Merci les amis! Keep them coming, we want to impress the little dude and help him out. I don't think he will get many from random classes like us... but we are not random. We are the business (pronouced bees' knees) like the kids like to say now.
Question du jour: Comment s'appellait le petit bonhomme qu'on essaie d'aider?
