We also made an easy reader book on our theme, and practiced our emergent reading skills. When we read, we talk about how each sentence begins with a 'lettre majuscule' and ends with a 'point'. We read from left to right, and track each word with our finger as we go. We point out features of books, such as 'la page couverture' and 'le titre'. Students are always so proud that they can 'read' their books.
To finish off the week, we made Shape Monsters with our Big Buddies. I love how every monstre is different - it really showcases what a lovely, unique group we are in Division 15. Our Big Buddies helped us count how many of each shape we used in our pictures - this time using the "Il y a..." sentence structure. Our artwork is hanging on our bulletin board outside the class. Please come by and check it out.
