Plans for Tuesday
En raison du mouvement de grève du mardi 4 avril 2006, les cours ne seront pas assurés dans la classe de votre enfant. Une garderie sera mise en place par la Mairie (exclusivement réservée aux enfants dont les deux parents travaillent, de 7h30 à 18h30).
Today Emily brought me home another one of these slips of paper. The kind that tell the parents that last Tuesday's strike resulting in a cancelled day of school was not enough. They're going to do it again this coming Tuesday.
Jason's teachers, likewise, are doing the same as last week: Math and English will still be taught, but double French and double Sports are being scrapped (two thirds of the day). Most likely. They'll know for sure on Monday. There go my plans to go to the anglophone Bible study that only happens every two weeks.
So I told the kids this is getting old and we'll need to do some school of our own at home to replace all these lost days. Maybe we'll study that puzzle I showed you and get in some U.S. History (which they certainly aren't going to get any other place around here!). Maybe we'll play some geography games online and learn the countries in Africa, or the départements in France. Maybe I'll get the kids to read some short biographies (they don't tend to think they like those for some reason; they're more into fictional spies, mysteries, magic, fantasy, and science fiction). Maybe we'll watch a movie in French to try to get some more idiom into their vocabulary.

I've been called a lot of things in my life, but wiggly worm has not ever been one of them. While looking through the TTLB thingy for other similarly labeled sites, I found a truly international hodgepodge of interesting sites. Let's start our global worm [Read More]

Sounds like you might end up homeschooling again by default, LOL! Good golly, all those strikes would be rather annoying!!
