Grade 2/3 W – Mme Caitlin Wilson

Bonjour!

I am so thrilled to be at LMST this year after completing my practicum here last year in Primary French Immersion. I am so excited to teach such a lovely group of students and to be involved in such a supportive community!

Friendly Reminders:

  • Please remember to check your child’s communication folder each night (the blue folder) as it contains all important notices sent from administration as well as the Hilroy scribbler inside, which is the communication scribbler. This is only for parent-teacher communication (great place to let me know of any appointments, questions about homework, if you would like to set up a meeting to talk, etc.). There is a large Ziploc baggie with your child’s name on it for sending money, notices, etc.

Please feel free to contact me! Send a note in your child’s communication folder or send me an e-mail! Let me know if you need to speak over the phone and I can also call you at a convenient time.

Reading Programs (at home):

I hope that you are enjoying the reading program at home. Please remember that this program was developed with you and your family in mind – I am very easy-going about how you and your child decide to complete the reading assignments. Generally speaking, students can read the books that they bring home with them and fill out the orange comprehension sheet in their homework scribbler. 

Comprehension skills are essential to reading in grades 2 and 3. This is when your child is developing skills to read to learn (rather than the main focus of learning to read).

 

 

 

 Lest We Forget / Je me souviens

Here are a few pictures of the beautiful artwork that students completed last week for Remembrance Day (le jour du Souvenir). We had amazing conversations about the importance of this day and what it means to us. I was amazed at how students engaged in very meaningful discussions about war, conflict resolution and what “peace” means to them. They worked hard to create brief poems about these topics, and on Friday, we completed lovely artwork to go with the poems. They completed the artwork with different types of paper, paint, and coffee filters – they are so lovely and I am so proud of them!
