Mr. Miller's class learned how to answer questions in French - with complete sentences, not just "oui" or "non"! Remember to use the "ne-verb-pas hamburger", and NEVER put "ne" and "pas" together! Homework tonight was finishing up the questions given in class.
Mr. Marques' class, now welcoming some new Grade 7 students into the fold, got to work on their listening skills today. They listened to short descriptions of different pieces of technology, and said what they thought each one was. This supports the listening expectations from the French curriculum.
Mrs. Wiken's class had a listening activity of their own! They had to listen to short descriptions of different people, and draw what they looked like. This will help turn them into more effective French listeners!
Mr. Stephenson's class got their first French reading lesson today! They learned how to use "mots connus" (words you already know) and "mots-amis" (words that look like English) to understand a short letter written in French. These skills will serve them very well as they launch into more complex texts! Homework tonight was to finish the short reading passage given, if it wasn't finished in class.
Mrs. McLeish's class did a listening activity to recognize their school supplies in sentences. They also completed a short review of school vocabulary in class.
Mrs. Howland's class used our whiteboards to learn how to use -ER verbs properly in sentences - CONJUGATE YOUR VERBS EVERY TIME. There is no quicker way to make M. Bettridge happy than a beautifully conjugated verb in a sentence! We reviewed this concept until just about everybody understood it, and I think we're good to go now!
See you tomorrow for the Friday edition of our blog. Joyeux vendredi!
