Blogger of the Week – BENNY!

Hi my name is Benny and I am blogger of the week!

In French we do the blue book when you’re finished all the work in class. You make a wordsearch in French with all the new words you have learnt. In the morning when we have french we always do the blue book. It can also be fun sometimes.

In Hebrew, we do the word of the day it’s when people pick a new word for the class. In the morning we bring in our homework and write out the Hebrew to practise our writing. Then the teacher calls people to read. In Hebrew we do the Sefer בעברית.

In gym, we do Mario kart.  You are on a scooter and every lap you get a fake dollar bill and a popsicle stick with your dollar bills you can buy stuff.If you get$ 3 you can buy a pylon if you bump into it you go to the middle you roll a dice whatever number you get you do the thing. If you have $ 5 you can get a dodgeball or turtle. If you have $10 you can get a push dodgeball and pylon. It is so much fun!

Look at the words we made with our popsicle sticks!

In general studies when we come in we read a book quitely. We love to read and our Reading Challenge is going so well!

This week in math, we practised time. In the game, we made our own watch and set the time. We then had to write all the names in the class. Then the music started! We danced until it stopped and then you had to read the time of the person closest to you! It was fun! If you get it right you write it down but if you get it wrong you dance away and come back later to try again.

This is the class doing the anthems. Today I was the lead!

Miss M did a creative writing activity with us using our imagination and the best adjectives we could think of. We made our own fantastic beast. Here is someone who is presenting his creature. You make your own beast. On the other side of the page you answer questions how you can tame it what’s its power. 

This is Olivia doing her blog she was talking about the shinshinim. She was blogger of the week.

Here is Eden presenting her penguin research.

Reading buddies I love reading buddies because you get to have a buddie and read and I love to read.

I love T’filah it’s one of my favourite part of Hebrew.

This is music one of my favourite subjects yesterday we were learning about the blues.

Thanks for reading my blog!

French play

Dear parents,

There have been a few changes to our annual French plays. This year, the Grade 3 class will be performing their plays in front of the ADK class instead of the school wide presentations of years past. As part of this week’s Plan de Travail, there is a slip of paper for the students to rank their top 3 roles in order. We have also changed to a different play called “Les animaux du Bayou”

All the best,


French suggestions

Hello everyone,

I have recently had a few emails asking how to incorporate French in the home. I have put together a list of a few suggestions.

1. Duolingo: You can create an account at home using your email or your child’s email. I think that students will enjoy playing these games, especially because they keep track of points and you can move up different levels.
2. Quia French: Similar to Duolingo, but this site is full of different French games that are made by users of the site. The search function can help you find familiar themes (fruits, clothing, animals..)
3. French books: Any public library will have lots of great French books, but I find that the Carlingwood library selection is probably the best that I have seen so far. In particular, there is a series called “Escalire” that has lots of age appropriate books. They rank them according to different letters, you would probably want something around level F-I.
4. Movies/ Shows in French: Netflix has a good bit of family movies and shows that can be watched in French. You could always also have him/her watch in French, but place the subtitles in English.
5. French radio: There are a few stations that I listen to with the news or music in French, perhaps one day a week can be devoted to French radio while in the car.
6. French board games: There are some great board games in French, some that we have played in class. One particularly good game is a board game called ‘Mont a Mots’. Very easy to play, and there is a large focus on vocabulary. Unfortunately the French store where I shopped on Donald street recently closed, however, there is one in the Byward Market called ‘Librairie du Soleil’.
7. Complete French Smart: This book can be purchased at Chapters and sometimes is also available at Costco. I’d recommend the Grade 4 version. It is basically a summary of all the main grammar/themes that tend to be introduced at a Grade 4 level. I’ve included a link here.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
All the best.
