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!

Salut, les parents,

This week we continued practicing the colours, as well as fall vocabulary.  We have added verbalizing numbers and reciting 3 poems about the colours. The students also made hedgehogs with real leaves and they used the letters to write different words. We also practiced the letter ‘F’ and this week we will learn the expression ‘Il y a’ (there is). In order to save you from having to record the syllables, I will work with them individually.

Next week’s challenge: To learn a poem for Remembrance Day!

Bonne weekend!

Hello Parents,

More than one month has gone by, and lots interesting and fun things have been happening in our french class. As you already saw, I sent home the booklets we created with the kids regarding the classroom vocabulary and some letters of the alphabet. Please practice reading the new words with them and the expressions (voici, vois). We also had our first quiz on this topic. We have started a new vocabulary topic (the fall), including the colours and numbers. We are also learning to sing 2 songs related to autumn (l’automne est là , and la valse de l’automne)

We watched a short film related to autumn ( and next week when the weather is nice, we will go out to collect leaves practicing our vocabulary. We will continue to learn new sounds mostly vowels so that the students can read the words. Next week I believe the accounts will be ready for Je lis as well.

I wish you all a relaxing holiday!
