A New Year, a fresh start!

Bonne année! I hope you all enjoyed a happy Christmas holiday and that your new year is off to a good start!
        Monday is the deadline for bringing projects to class for Grade 7 and 8 students. We have had a month to create a garment or accessory out of materials destined for the recycling bin or trash can. Each item will be a conversation-starter in French for sure, as well as a feature in our class fashion show. We will be asking and answering questions about our creations as well as writing a paragraph about them. We will be reading these aloud.

These jeans have enjoyed a very productive, long life in the work force! 

It's time for a change...a fresh start!

Voici une tunique fait de tissu recyclé! Fabric was salvaged and turned inside out and sewn in long strips. Denim from another pair of old black jeans was added and voilà!

God does far better than this--He makes us completely new in Christ.  "If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." 2 Corinthians 5:17  God delights in taking us as we are and giving us new life! 

The Grade 3/4 class will be starting their family projects; please remember that all family photos are due Monday.

In the Grade 5/6 class we are learning vocabulary so that we can work in small groups to adapt a favorite classroom game (the quiet game). We will write about and explain the rules of our new game to the class in French and have a chance to play it. 

Bonne semaine, 
Mme Christensen
