Bonjour les élèves: Just an update on what is expected of you in the next week.

8e- You should be working away at your fashion projects. Select pics on the internet or magazines of outfits you wish to present for your decade. We can put these on the smart document camera for classmates to view- another option is to create a power point presentation. Please remember however, we only have one more lab period to prepare.

7e- You are also putting finishing touches on your presentation of une phénomème étrange. Written work should be completed by next class in order that you and your partner(s) have time to rehearse the presentation. I will begin listening to these next week so get moving on this please.

Grade 8 you will have your final music test tomorrow. It will be your choice to play the test piece on the keyboard or the guitar; whichever instrument allows you to give your best performance.

Have a safe and Happy Halloween. À Demain.

Bonjour mes élèves. Once again please refer to homework assignment for this past weekend. We did not get to this today so you have until Thursday now to conduct an interview with a parent/grandparent/aunt/uncle about fashion styles worn in their day. Have fun with this. See you Thursday. Have a good evening. Bonne soirée!

Bonjour mes élèves. Here is the next assignment required for the next few classes:  Interview a parent or grandparent, aunt or uncle etc. and ask them to describe the clothing and footwear they wore when they were your age. Ask them if any brands of clothing or shoes were popular and to name them. More specifically have them describe clothing worn for the following:

- a typical outfit for school

- a typical weekend outfit

- a typical outfit worn when playing sports

- a typical outfit for a special event like a school dance

If you wish to add anything else to this list please feel free to do so. This is not homework for tomorrow but I would like it done for Monday's french class. Perhaps you could interview them on the weekend?  Have fun with this and I look forward to seeing the results. See you tomorrow. à demain.

Bonjour mes élèves.


8e:    The focus this week will be to finish presentations on your car of choice. We will then move on to the fashions popular in past decades. We will research this during our lab period on thursday however you may go ahead and start this at home if you wish to do so. Talk to your parents or grandparents; find out what was popular in their day. Bring in pictures if you have any to share.

7e:   The assignment "Un Monstre Connu"  is now marked and will be handed out during class. You will have a chance to read these to a small group. We will now move on to strange phenomena. (Things we cannot explain) that have been reported or written about from eyewitness accounts. We will decide if these phenomena are real or simply stories made up over the years. Part of the lab period on Thursday will be used to research phenomena.

Have a good evening everyone. Bonne soirée à tous!

Bonjour mes élèves. Here is an update of work expected this week:

7e- I did corrections on your writing pieces "Un Monstre Connu" tonight. I am noticing many of you are not taking advantage of the phrases on the Word Wall. I am correcting sentences that are sitting in front of you on the board. What's up with that?!!

8e- I see you are almost finished of posters and diagram of cars from a specific decade. Remember you also have to give an oral presentation of this work with your partners.

Have a great evening everyone. See you tomorrow. À demain!

Bonjour mes élèves. Here is your homework.

7e- Please refer to yesterday's entry. We had the chance to practice presenting your monster today. We will be describing your monster in written format this week. You can prepare for this by rehearsing the oral presentation to your imaginary friends!!

8e- Please refer to yesterday's entry. We will go to the lab on Thursday morning to research a vehicule representing the decade previously assigned during french class.  

Bonne soirée!!

Bonjour: Here is your homework for tonight:


7e- We will be writing about your monster next class. If you have not done an oral presentation describing your monster you need to do so before we write. Please give this some thought and come prepared to either write and/or discuss "Je connais un monstre"

8e- We have now been assigned a specific decade and you have a partner. In order to prepare for your presentations, our next class will take place in the lab on Thursday morning. You will have the chance to do your research. You may however start doing this at home to be extra prepared. You will want to consider main parts of the exterior as well as main features of the interior and decide if these features are practical or esthetic or simply for our added comfort and maybe not so necessary; for instance ( heated leather seats- are they necessary?) Just a thought!!

Bonne soirée à vous tous.
