Mrs. K. Gallant Notes

Hello October


Posted: November 9, 2021

Good Morning Grade One Families!

Today would be Terrific Tuesday if we were at school! If you would like to play along, say good morning to your little lion today in a formal voice, and address them formally - good morning Mrs. Lovely or Good Morning Mr. Duguay ! They will get a kick out of it. This is one of their favourite morning greetings! 

Attached is the lesson Plan for November 9th, 2021. Please email me if you have any questions or concerns.

Have a great day everyone!

It is very important that students continue to read daily. We have attached instructions on how to login to Epic Books below, which will allow students to read books every day. The program is only available to students until 3pm. Books have been assigned to your child at their reading level and you will notice that some books have a quiz at the end to check their comprehension. If there is not a quiz at the end of the book, then you could ask your child some comprehension questions (see sample comprehension questions in the front of your child's yellow literacy duotang that was sent home in September). 

If you do not have the supplies (pencil, crayons, scissors, glue, technology etc) at home to complete any of the assigned tasks on our teach page or  in your Grade 1 Home Learning Package, please email me and I will be sure to get the necessary supplies to you. 


Open your web browser and 

1. Go to

2. Enter class code: umd4230

3. Select the your child's name 

4. There are two assigned books for your child to read. In the top right-hand corner, click 'Mailbox' to find these books. 

5. Read the books and complete the quiz (if available) to earn points/badges.

Today is Terrific Tuesday! Are you ready for home learning today?

Attached to this note is a lesson plan for you to use as a guideline, while we are at home learning. Please email me if you have any questions.

Please keep all student work completed during Home Learning and send it to school with your child when we return to school base learning. I would ask that a pencil be used when your child is completing any writing or math activities.

Good Afternoon everyone! I hope everyoneis well and staying safe. In this note I will attach the sight word cards that were given at the first of the year. Many differnt games can be played with these cards. It is important to review in the order that they were given and only practice 3- 4 cards until you have mastered those and then try out 3- 4 new ones! Here are a few ideas to help you learn your sight words in a fun way :

Memory Match make a double set of 3- 4 cards and see if you can read the cards as you try to make a match

I spy - tape the sight word cards around your room and spy the ones you can read. 

Read the sight words with a flash light - before you go to bed, tape the words around your room, shut out the light, and shine a light on all your words and say them!
