Schedule at a Glance


By popular demand, here is the recipe for mini pumpkin muffins! Lots of photos going into our portfolios this week about this experience.

Les Muffins au Citrouille

Preheat oven to 350°. Place paper baking cups into miniature muffin pans.

Combine flour and next 7 ingredients in a medium bowl.

Combine pumpkin and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture, stirring just until moistened. Spoon batter into cups, filling two-thirds full.

Bake, in batches, 15 to 17 minutes.

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

3/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1/2 tsp ground allspice

1/2 tsp ground cloves

1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin puree

3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3 large eggs

3/4 cup vegetable oil






We tried something different this week for les nouvelles. I typed it up while the kids watched for mistakes (uppercase letters where they don’t belong) on the projector. Here are the nouvelles for this week!


Lundi Mme Domijan visited our classroom in the afternoon and we went to the gymnase avec Mme Therrien.

Mardi we learned a new song 10 petites citrouilles. (Find it under Songs/Poems)

Mercredi we looked closely at les champignons in the foret.

Jeudi we took Mme Therrien’s class into la foret and taught them about les champignons.

Vendredi we had les aerobics.

Les cèdres are participating in a Kindergarten Alphabet Exchange with 25 other classes across B.C.. We received our first two letters last week and have completed ours this week to be sent out next week. Our first two letters were from Creston, B.C. and Surrey, B.C.. There is so much excitement about letters and sending mail! 

Here is what we created! The Uppercase S was created with materials from our Forest to represent something we love to do as a class and the lowercase S was created with fallen cedar (or cèdre) leaves to represent the class name that we have chosen.
