Happy New Year 2017 to all the families!

Thank you so much for your gifts: your kindness touched my heart and I am grateful for you. I hope everyone had an enjoyable and restful break!

I am excited for all what is left to do and here is a look into the learning throughout the grades:

2nd – 3rd grade:

We reviewed the colors and the shapes. We practiced associating the nouns with the adjectives of color. We followed “la famille Legrand” in some of their activities. We found Madame Legrand singing, Léo painting, Maggie jumping rope, Marie learning English (for us at Archway, we are learning French) and Monsieur Legrand running.  Next, we learned about the objects of the school in regard of masculine and feminine nouns. We also practiced the objects with the color. To support all the learning related to the objects of the school, we are currently memorizing a poem called “s’il te plaît” – Please. Moreover, we can count till 20 and we are practicing writing the numbers in letters also.

All vocabulary words are found on your student’s notebook. The main vocabulary words of a lesson are given as flash cards to allow the students to quiz themselves frequently and master the material longer.
