February was a month full of celebrations. We celebrated Carnival with a visit from the Maple Man! He played wooden spoons for us and made wooden puppets dance. The highlight, of course, was the maple taffy tasting! Students also made their own Bonhomme Carnival out of modelling clay. The visit from Maple Man was a great way to finish off January’s work on winter clothing, winter sports, and polar animals.
February was also La St-Valentin. Students loved exchanging Valentines. What a lucky teacher I am to have received so many beautiful cards. Merci les amis!
In the week leading up to La St-Valentin, we had the opportunity to label Valentine’s Day pictures in our journals. We are learning to record at least 2 prominent sounds in a word. We also added a mailbox to the Bricolage centre and students played facteur (mailman) addressing heart-shaped cards to their classmates.
