We have begun learning the vocabulary that students will need to complete their final French assignment. Students will be creating a poster about themselves entitled "Tout sur moi!" or "All About Me!" They will be a writing a French paragraph about their likes, family, personality traits and hobbies they have. They will include a self portrait as well as drawings to represent their interests. We will be working on this assignment for the reminder of our French classes. Students will present their paragraphs and posters to their class in the last few French classes. The exact presentation date is to be determined based on how fast students work.
4A students had lots of fun on Wednesday when grade 5’s visited our class to teach students the card game “Go Fish” in French. They taught them the sentences needed to play in French as well as the face cards before playing a few games with each other. 4D will be taught the game next week!
Students received their "All About Me" poster projects back this week with their attached marks. The students did a great job on this assignment! Over the past few weeks we have been learning “les saisons” (the seasons) and vocabulary associated with clothing (Les vêtements). Students have been studying the names of articles of clothing associated with what you would wear in each season. This will lead into an in-class project next week, which will incorporate past and present vocabulary including clothing, weather, seasons and colours.
Students in 4C and 4F have now completed their presentations about 'Les Parties du Corps' (The Parts of the Body). Here are some sites from the Internet that may afford additional help students in their pronunciation: www.languageguide.org/french/vocabulary/body/
Grade 4's continued to work with la famille vocabulary. They looked at a French family tree, the Dubois family, and had to answer the riddle of " who am I?" or "qui suis je?" This was a little bit challenging for some. We will be doing another, larger, family tree next week.
