Semaine du 6 Novembre

November begin and leaves adorn themselves with the autumn colors
This past week we have been playing with our name, trying to recognize it on the tree of first names when the teacher ask :
– “C’est à qui?”.
Then we searched for the first letter of our first name. It’s difficult but we tried very hard. Some of us, the oldest, even wrote this first letter! Drawing our “bonhomme” was very funny, and we were very proud to do it. This week our nursery rhythm was : “Le grand cerf dans la fôret” and we liked it because it was funny to make the gestures and to shake hands.

The 3’s continue to work on their first names: recognition, order of the letters : we read from left to right,  different type of letters. They also trained they hand muscles and fingers for writing by drawing lots of little “ponts”.
And more bonhommes in art to reinforce vocabulary and self-conscieuness, sharpen creativity by using things that surround them and follow the Autumn theme : leaves

Autumn has been everywhere since November started…
Practicing Upper and Lower case with the Autumn words such as November, champignon, feuille, marron, gland, pomme, etc…
Making beautiful piece of art with leaves and decoupage, reviewing numbers and numerate animals.

Semaine du 23 Octobre à l’école…

Halloween, Halloween is coming

This week, we continued working on the body scheme. But we used others mediums like play dough to make our handprint for example or paintings for footprints.
The subject of Halloween helps us to improve this work (our little cute wish is upside down, she needs our help to be in the right way) to enhance our vocabulary, to play with words.

Happy Halloween to y’all

The kids worked all together on being able to verbalize the different body parts (tete, epaules, genoux, pieds, mains, cou, yeux, nez, bouche, Oreille….)

Vocabulary of the human body has been review with the bingo game.

They have been asked at differents occasion to make a representation of a bonhomme by using what’s around them: at the playground, in the class, using one of theirpeers. The children were very creative!


 This week Graphism was about doing handprint or footprint. The children first made the decoupage and collage and then the drawings they chose from the Graphic Dictionary. They then did their fingerprints and put black paint quite everywhere because it tickled them!!! They had fun !!!

Then they worked on the identification of the different parts of the body of a Bonhomme and they wrote  labels. They did a good job knowing that it was going to be hooked! They did a job worthy of the class “des grands”!


La semaine du 16 octobre à l’école…

We worked on body scheme with playdough and sticking different parts of Petit ours brun’s body.
Our favorite story this week is: la ballade de Monsieur Flaubert and we played to fix him in the right way.
We learnt with the song : Tête, épaule, genoux, pieds, to identify, recognize this parts.
And as usual, all this work, help us to improve our fine motor skills and our French vocabulary.

This week the 3’s continued their year long project on the human body and started to discuss Halloween, the children favorite holyday! 🙂
The older 3’s worked on matching letters : uppercase/lower case, writing new words : Halloween, orange, citrouille… while the young 3’s worked on the color orange. The Halloween bingo game was introduced to the class to strenghten the theme’s vocabulary.

Halloween was everywhere this week : Graphism, Vocabulary, Writing, and Reading.
Drawing spiderweb is a good way to practice oblique lines. The 4’s review the Halloween vocabulary while also working on their upper/lower case. Decoupage/collage of words and colouring some citrouille is a fun way to memorize vocabulary.

La semaine du 9 Octobre à l’école…

This week in the 2’s classroom, we learned to make round, big and small. Thanks to apple.
And with apple trees, we also learned that yellow and blue make green.
Our favorite nursery rhymes is : Pomme de reinette et pomme d’Api  (2 different kinds of apple)

Fall is here. The 3’s learned about season and review all the vocabulary around it.
What’s in the forest? What live in the forest? What falls from trees? which colors are they?
They made a collage after sorting the differents images, keeping only those related to the theme.
They told the teacher what is on each image and then couldn’t help telling some personnal story about trees, forest, squirrels 🙂

This month everybody at l’école has been learning about Le corps humain, human body.

In the 4’s classroom, children cut and paste the different parts of the face to review and memorize the vocabulary.
There was a discussion about the 5 human senses, and they have been really creative when they have been asked to make a Bonhomme :
