Nous apprenons ensemble en croquant un mot à la fois!

Posted: December 15, 2021



Choose one or two activities from each category in this order each day.

Warm Up – songs counting on YouTube, skip counting orally by 2s to 20, 5s and 10s up to 100

Videos- Alain le lait, counting 1-100, 1-50, FouFou chanel addition, soustraction

Practice- write out the digits from 1-50, practice writing the numbers in words (to 20), representing numbers with tally marks then count by 5s, drawings/objects in groups of 2s, 5s then count them out orally

Websites can be found under the Website Tab on the Teacher Page, ixl website, Radio Canada Jeunesse, Math Playground

This is also a good Warm Up with odd and even numbers



This week in class we have a focus on subtraction and continuing and going one step further using a number line. 

Think: Can you call apples, oranges and bananas types of fruit? Yes, apples, oranges and bananas are all fruit. 

For example: You bought 15 pieces of fruit (apples, oranges and bananas). During the week, your family ate 9 pieces of fruit.

The equation is: 15 – 9 =6


  • – Click on Grade 1 Math and click on Understanding Subtraction F.1 – F.4 Please review these if you need.
  • Subtraction Skill Builders H.1 – H. 10

When you practice with Skill Builders, think of the strategies that you can use to subtract.

  • You can use double: for example, you know that 7+7 = 14. Then 14 – 7 = 7, also 14 – 6 = 8
  • Because you know that 6 + 6 = 12 Then 12 – 6 = 6
  • 11 – 8 = 3 You can count forward from 8 to 11 and it give you 3


Can you make another equation like this one with vegetables? Yes, you can. Go ahead and try! You can use pictures to add to your practice too!

Please have your child count in French every day. Practice makes perfect.

Count by 1's. Count by 2's to 20.

Count by 5's to 20. 


Take it further count by 5's to 100. 


How many things you can count at home inside and outside?


Count, count, count in French everywhere you go!

Compter a rebours

Dix dans le lit chanson * Compter à rebours de 10 à 1 * Counting backwards 10 to 1 in French - YouTube


Practice counting backwards. 


A little activity before they fall asleep. Your child needs to count backward from 10 to 0, without looking at the numbers. 

Practice also: 8 to 0, 5 to 0 etc.


Les amis!

Now that you have mastered this task, try counting backward from 20 to 0.

Bonjour classse!

Aujourd’hui c’est le vendredi 12 novembre, 2021.  Il fait nuageux aujourd’hui.

Je m’appelle Madame Gauthier! Ça va bien, aujourd’hui.  Je suis contente et heureuse. J’ai 38 ans.  J’ai les cheveux blonds et bruns. J’ai les yeux noisettes. Ma fête est le 8 septembre.

Mon ami s’appelle Nick. C’est un garçon. Mon amie s’appelle Kayla. C’est une fille.

Dans mon sac d’école, il y a un livre. Dans la classe, il y a des crayons et des gommes à effacer.   


I would like you to count how many sentences there are in this message.  Can you find our words we’ve been working on?  Make some sentences like mine! 

Say it, write it, read it!

Continue with Math, Literacy and You and Your World learning ideas from the week.   

I would like to hear from all of you today! I miss you all! Hope to see you soon!

Love, Madame Gauthier

Demain ce sera le Jour du Souvenir.  


While we cannot be together to commemorate Remembrance Day this year, the staff and students of King Street Elementary wanted to find a way to virtually come together to remember and honour the heroes from our families who fought for our freedom.


Check out the King Street Elementary Home Page to take part in the ceremony.

Make some artwork to remember those who fought for our freedom.  Paint or draw a field of poppies or whatever comes to mind when you think of Remembrance Day.... "Jour du Souvenir "


Lest We Forget....Nous nous souvenons

Bonjour classe!

Aujourd’hui c’est le mercredi 10 novembre, 2021. 

Ce matin, quand je me suis réveillée, le ciel était noir.  Dans mon salon, avec une tasse de café, j’ai regardé le lever du soleil et le beau ciel rouge!  Maintenant, il fait nuageux et le ciel est gris. 

(This morning, when I woke up, the sky was black.  In my living room, with a cup of coffee, I watched the sunrise and the beautiful red sky!  Now, it is cloudy, and the sky is gray.)

Il y a six personnes dans ma famille.  Combien de personnes y-a-t ’il dans ta famille?

(There are six people in my family.  How many people are in your family?)

Mon amie s’appelle Kayla.  Elle a les cheveux bruns et les yeux verts.  ( My friend’s name is Kayla.  She has brown hair and green eyes.)

Mon ami s’appelle Nick.  Il a les cheveux bruns et les yeux bruns.  (My friend’s name is Nick.  He has brown hair and brown eyes.)

Continue with our Math and Literacy documents, and don't forget to check out Mr. Williston's Teacher Page for Physical Education ideas. 

If it is nice out, take the learning outside and use counting or addition with things in nature.  Be creative: count the clouds, leaves, how many jumps skipping rope...the list goes on!  Make patterns with rocks or leaves.  Order your branches or things in nature from smallest to biggest...have fun with it!

Have a great day everyone and please reach out if you need anything at all!
