This week we learned how to say the date in French and we’ll start every French class with the question:
Quelle est la date aujourd’hui? (What is the date today?)
Answer : Aujourd’hui c’est _____le __ _________, 2017.
(day) (#) (month)
We have also started learning Halloween and Autumn-related vocabulary. Students started working on a Halloween related art and writing project. They will be creating a “maison hantée" (based on the picture puzzle books) on black paper and coloured with pencil crayons. On it they will draw pictures from their vocabulary list and then write a sentence about their drawings incorporating numbers as well. When finished, they will be sharing their finished product with their peers.
Dans ma/mon maison hantée, je vois trois citrouilles, deux hiboux, cinq chats noirs, sept araignées, quatre déguisements, une sorcière et vingt bonbons!
(In my haunted house, I see three pumpkins, two owls, five black cats, seven spiders, four costumes, a witch and twenty candies!)
