The expectation as well is to read 10-15 minutes every night as homework. There will be evenings where your child will have the same book for consecutive nights. Doing so enables students to re-read and master the book. Books sent home have been rehearsed in class.

I also encourage students to also review and practice saying and writing their numbers up to one hundred in French.

Likewise, 10 minutes is schedule every class to review multiplication. Last week we reviewed the 2 family. This week we will look at the 4’s. Please practice at home. The expectation for Gr 4 is up to 8x8.

Health - This week will serve as a review of material covered. Students will create a poster indicating 3 positive things i.e. words of encouragement, being thankful, etc.

Welcome back to another week in 4FI Glazier. Our first week back is already in the books. It was fantastic to say the least! I am very impressed with the wealth of French that students have retained over their summer vacation. Routines and norms have been established. I look forward to a wonderful year ahead.

Please note that Fluoride consent forms were sent home on Friday. Please return to school if you have not already done so. Various notes (cafeteria menu, etc.) as well were also placed in your child’s reading bag.

Fire drill and lockdown procedures were reviewed last week and will continue this week. We will have a chance to practice as a school throughout the week.

French - We are in the process of establishing reading levels and groups. Once complete, books will be sent home to be read. The expectation is to read 10-15 minutes every night as homework. Books sent home have been rehearsed prior to being sent home.

Also, we have also begun to write. Last week, we established certain themes and individual words to be rehearsed throughout the week as part of our Daily 5 routine. Our first writing assignment will be an Informative piece. Students will be writing a descriptive writing piece as a final product.

Math - Students are learning about place value. Students are currently reviewing their numbers in French (orally/written). Last week’s assignment was to manipulate large numbers into tables, represent pictorially, and break down into individual strands. This week, we will correct and continue to practice.

Health - We are currently learning about our emotions. Last week’s theme was Appreciation. We learned to be thankful and respectful to others. This week, we will be looking at wants vs needs.

Please note:

  • Meet the teacher Wednesday, Sept 14th at 6 p.m.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at school. I will respond via phone call as promptly as I can. Let’s have a great week! Cheers :)

What a great "back to school" welcome at Gretna Green School. My name is M. Glazier, and I will be teaching your child French this year. The foundation and been laid in grade 3, and students are off to a fantastic start in grade 4.

Positive communication between teachers and parents/guardians is essential. I hope the following information will help you understand certain aspects of your child's academic year.

Teacher Page:

I post frequently on my teacher page, which is located under the “Teacher Page” tab of our school website. Student’s schedules, class assignments, notices, reminders, links, etc. will be updated weekly.

Likewise, it is very important that you verify our school website on a regular basis in order to know what is going on. Many notices, updates, important reminders, etc. are posted daily.

English Language Arts:

English will be taught by Mlle. Savoie for 30 minutes daily.

Book orders:

Scholastic book orders will be sent home once my account have been activated. This is a great opportunity to build your child’s French library. Your orders also help us earn points towards additional browsing box books for our classrooms.

Homework:

I try to keep homework to a minimum. I do, however, encourage your child to read every night in French for 15 minutes. Books will be sent home once I establish their current reading levels. This may take up to a week or two. If work has been assigned, it will be due on Fridays. Any incomplete work will be sent home as well. If you have any questions, please contact me and I will respond via telephone as promptly as possible.

You may prefer your child to divide his/her workload throughout the week as he/she could have activities on certain nights such as: hockey, karate, dance or whatever the case may be. It is up to you! I hope this “homework routine” will be easier to organize your family’s schedule, as we encourage children to get involved in extracurricular activities.

Other information:

  • Please send a note if your child will be absent or when there is a change in the child’s routine. School policy dictates that your child will be sent on the bus if I do not have a note stating that he/she should not “take the bus.”
  • Students may keep a bottle of water. (optional)
  • Treats! Please let me know if there are any food items your child should not eat. Please do not forget that Gretna Green is a peanut free school.
  •  I teach from 8:30-2:30, and committed to school extra-curricular activities on most days. I will respond to messages as promptly as possible.
  • Thank you so much for your cooperation. Your child’s education is at heart.

Let’s work together to make 4 Glazier and the greater Gretna Green community a positive learning environment for all. Cheers!

M. Glazier :)
