French Auctions for Grades 4 and 5

French with the grades 4 and 5 students has been a very fun and productive time so far this term!

Once a year, I will be asking each child to bring a prize (about $3-5 value) for our auctions (“ventes aux enchères”).

Items from home are welcome as well as prizes.

Volunteers have been chosen already for the first auction for both Grade 4 and 5.

Examples of prizes include toys, stationary, stickers, books, candy, souvenirs, etc. The prizes are greatly appreciated by Monsieur Lai and all the students. Students earn euros throughout the year to spend at the auctions, held every two to three months.

Also, the number of euros each student receives is also recorded for marks. They can receive euros in the following ways:

  • Doing well on quizzes/tests/homework
  • helping the teacher/friends, and
  • answering questions in class.

I appreciate your help with these. I will bring some prizes myself to each class as well. If you have any questions, please email me.

***Auctions will occur during in the months of:

1. Friday, November 8

2. End of February

3. April

4. June (end of the year)
