Mme. Robichaud Notes

Let curiosity take the lead


Posted: September 21, 2022

The Terry Fox walk will be next Wednesday, September 28th. Grade 3 students will be walking with Mme Prince's grade 3s @9:20-10am. Grade 4 students will be walking with me and the other grade 4s @10-11am. Parents/guardians are welcome to join. Donations are encouraged (online or cash). Thanks in advance for your support!

Homework begins tonight! Each student will go home with a pack of word cards. These cards are specific to them. They are to read them each night and bring them back to school each day. We will be adding word cards throughout the year. Guided reading books will begin this week too! Please have students read their book for 10-20 minutes each night in French or English (alternating). I'm still testing in English so it may be a little longer for you to see those book home.

TOMORROW  (Wednesday, September 21st) 3/4 Robichaud *plans* to go to the Chatham Public Library for a morning visit. We will be walking there. Right now, the weather doesn’t look great but please dress appropriately. If it’s downpouring, we won’t go.

Students are WELCOME to bring their own library card to check out a book or two. If your child does not have a card and would like to sign up for one, we can bring an application home for a future visit. Library cards are FREE!

Student have been doing GREAT at getting our routines down pat and getting back into the swing of entire days in French. So impressed! They work hard each day for points of free time or special adventures. Next week we are hoping to take a walk to the public library for a visit, weather depending. Students are welcome to take a book out with their library card, if you allow it. A note will be sent home in the next few days.

Reminders for this week

Tuesday (tomorrow) is our Meet the Teacher night at King Street from 6:30-7:30pm. You're welcome to join if you'd like.

Wednesday is our Picture Day.

All for now!

Thanks to everyone for replying to emails and now getting those forms in. Once we have them all back, we will start putting up pictures on our class site.

Me again!
The Spell-a-thon test is this Friday. We did a practice test in class today so they'd know which words give them the most grief. It's in their homework folder. Hope this helps! We will continue to practice in class tomorrow (Thursday).

Welcome to Tuesday May 10th!
Spelling Bee is on Friday. Everyone has their list and should practice some at home. We practice daily at school too.
"Mme Bianka" is our French Language Helper and has been working in our class for about 1 hour/day all year. Her last day is the end of May and she is expecting a baby girl! If you could send in $2/child we plan to get a gift card from the students.
Finally, we have a few field trips planned for June. We are hoping to keep costs down as much as possible but keep the fun up! Just wanted to give a heads up that they are on their way.
As always, any questions, feel free to reach out.
