In Period Two, the 3rd graders learned about animal adaptations in Science. The students conducted individual research on various animal adaptations: Scientific Names, Climate, Habitat, Diet, Physical Adaptations, Behavioral Adaptations, and Interesting Facts. The research project was designed to enhance the students’ research, artistic, reading, and writing skills as they learned about animal adaptations.

5th and 6th grades Math Project is embellishing the blacktop with giant geometric shapes

By Francis Carlier

In September, Mr. Moncelet (5th grade) and Mr. Giot (6th grade) decided to embark on a fun and innovative project that would give students opportunity to work together on their geometrical skills.

After a few workshops on Math class time, students were ready to apply their skills to the drawing of giant geometric shapes on the blacktop. On Monday November 13 and Tuesday November 14, the two groups (6B/5B on Monday and 6A/5A on Tuesday) were tracing giant 2-meter diameter shapes on the blacktop, using chalk and ropes for measurement.

Writing in Cursive in 1st Grade

By Francis Carlier

1st grade students learn how to write in cursive once or twice a week. After working on specific white boards, they write on their French note books with “Seyes” lines. The French cursive is a demanding graphic technique that allows students to develop fine motor skills, and teaches them to remain focused over a long period of time.
