We are continuing to practice our descriptive writing. Students are beginning to edit their work more independently in order to catch their errors about adjectives (feminine/masculine & singular/plural).
We are doing retells and finding the important information to determine the beginning, middle, and end of a story.

We will be starting French centres next week. Students will be placed in small groups to work on different activities throughout the week. Centres often include a reading comprehension activity (done with me in a small group), a writing task related to our writing goals/interests, sentence scrambles, and a speaking activity (usually a phonetic poem). We started doing centres at the end of Grade 2, students should be comfortable completing these activities.
We are continuing to do reading conferences to advance our J'aime lire reading level.
