Now that Matthew is in SK (or jardin, as we refer to it) he is doing le foret de l'alphabet with his class. I'm sure Elizabeth did this too, but she did not have associated homework. Matthew does - every week he has a new letter and he needs to find pictures containing or starting with a particular letter (or associated sound). He also does a "sac a sons" which he can put pictures with that letter or objects! They then present the results to the class.
He likes the opportunity to take toys to school!
