I was delighted to visit this afternoon the first grade class of Sandrine. The students had written letters to me about their life at school and what they like during recess. The letters very well presented and read! Some students also prepared letters for Francis Carlier or Valérie Asensio. On the picture, the students who chose to write to me!

Bravo aux élèves de CP pour leur bon travail!

Hatchet by Gary Paulsen

By Francis Carlier

After reading the novel Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, fifth grade students then created a project based on the novel. They used their creativity to recreate a scene from the book as a diorama or wrote a survival guide for how to survive in the wilderness. All projects were based on information found in the novel. Some of the projects are displayed in the library for all to enjoy.
