This week students were shown the requirements for their les vêtements assignment that they began. We reviewed all the clothing vocabulary and then wrote two paragraphs together. In their paragraphs students must include: the season, write a weather phrase for that season and tell what clothing they (je), he (il) or she (elle) is wearing with a colour as a descriptor. Students will need 4 paragraphs, one for each season, and will be illustrating a person based on their sentences. Below is an example of a paragraph and some helpful words as well as an example from last year.
This week we started clothing (vêtements) vocabulary! This is last group of vocabulary before students start their big assignment next week that combines: the seasons, colours, weather and clothing. Students learned the phrase "je porte...." which means "I wear" and then had to fill in the sentence first with an article of clothing and then with the article of clothing followed by a colour. Below is the clothing vocabulary.
Students have been working on mastering their numbers in French to 69. We have practiced in multiple ways including singing songs and playing number "Bingo!" Students will have a listening test on their knowledge of numbers next week in class. Ten numbers will be repeated twice in French and students need to write the correct numeral for each. The numbers are below for further practice at home, as well as the songs we sang in class. 4A will have their quiz on Monday, March 12th, and 4D will have their quiz on Tuesday, March 13th.
We continued to practice using weather vocabulary and nouns. Students made a weather cube they will be using next week. Both classes will have a weather quiz. It will have matching, fill in the blank and a listening section.
4E weather quiz: Wednesday, March 7
4B weather quiz: Thursday, March 8
