French Update

Salut les parents!

What an exciting month December has been!!! We are all looking forward to observing different celebrations, and spending quality time with our loved ones. In class, we started our theme, Winter. The students got familiar with the new vocabulary through games, poems, songs, and writing activities. We keep working on our letters and sounds and I must admit that I am very happy with their recordings. The more they read and practice, the better they become. After the holidays, they will also do a comprehension activity linked to each story. That will help them understand the story and remember the vocabulary. In addition, we did some math activities in french learning plus, égale, and practicing the numbers. We also watched a show about the planets and the kids drew Space with the names of the different planets. Finally, we explored all the vocabulary associated with the celebration of Hanukkah and they did a word search, mazes, and decoding of sentences. bingo games and of course they sang beautifully in french during the school event.

And as if that was not enough, I decided to expose them to Greek mythology so I read to them the story of Dedalus and Icarus the famous engineers who constructed the wings to escape from the prison in Crete, but unfortunately, the latter did not follow the father`s advice and flew very close to the sun so his wings melted and he fell in the sea and died. They were so excited so along with the drama teacher we made the wings and the kids decorated them with feathers. Thank goodness they flew only in the classroom!
I wish you all happy and restful holidays!
