French Alphabet

Le 7 septembre

What a busy week, your little one has worked hard and is probably tired. We are ready to move into full swing next week. There are many things you can do at home to help your child which we have been talking about in class like watching French movies and videos and listening to French songs. We have used a few videos to help us with our numbers and alphabet in class and watched a “Frozen” video in French this week. I will start adding the sites we use to the website section of our class page for extra practice at home if you wish.

Have a great weekend.

We added the classroom phrase “Est-ce que je peux aller remplir ma bouteille d’eau?’ to our repertoire of phrases today, worked some more with the sound <ah>, read the book “Mon sac d’ecole” to work further on our classroom vocabulary and added “moins” to our math work vocabulary. We are moving closer to being totally French each day and by Monday I will be putting away the ‘English Boa’.


Bring in flyers.

We worked hard again today continuing to practice our salutations and we learning a new classroom phrase – “Est-ce que je peux aller boire?” Students started English language arts with Mrs. Tozer this afternoon. We started math this afternoon as well focusing on vocabulary for the numbers 1-12 and “plus” and “font”.

Homework : Students are expected to read and record on a nightly basis and have someone sign their reading log. Agenda should also be signed each night to say an adult saw what they had to do. The agenda is also a great way to send messages back and forth from school as I will check them each day.

We had a full day! Students are going home with an agenda full of notices and forms and I asked them to have their parents fill out the information in the front of their agendas. Today we worked on “Je m’appelle _________. Et toi, comment t’appelle tu? and the most important classroom phrase of all “Est-ce que je peux aller aux toilettes?”.

Homework – read and record in reading log.

Ask your child about Sebastian and the picture on the front of their reading log.

We are on day 3 of “Totally Joe”. We are reading this book as a class novel study but all students are expected to keep up their personal duo-tangs with their best work as their daily work will be marked. As we read they are expected to take notes on the setting and 4 of the characters, keep adding to the plot line with a note for each chapter and prepare a question for each chapter. Questions need to be higher level thinking.

We have been having difficulty bringing our narrative to a finish but students will have their third and last day to type the piece in the computer lab tomorrow. Hopefully we will wrap this up before the end of the week.
