St. Bernadette Students Battle it Out
Grade 3 French Immersion students at St. Bernadette Catholic Elementary School battled it out today during a challenging card game of War. Teacher Nancy Perron added a twist to this card game. Not only did students have to win the card game, they also had to compare the numbers that were found on each card as they went along. Applying mathematical language such as ‘plus grand que, plus petit que ou égal à’ allowed students to practice their French language skills while manipulating numbers- all the while having fun playing cards! Integrating play-based learning targets students’ emotional intelligence and allows them to become active, engaged participants in their own learning.
