Recherché! Wanted!

French B students practiced describing people using a variety of adjectives, hair and eye colors, likes, and languages spoken by creating imaginary WANTED posters.  They all did a great job.  Here are some cute ones along with their instructions.

Les conseils

Honors French has been working on giving advice and commands along with health and body parts.  Today they played the roles of someone with a “problem” and someone with an advice booth à la Snoopy & Lucy.

 

 

Au fitness

French C Honors students have been learning about health and body parts.  We are lucky enough to have a PE teacher and physical trainer who hails from France, so we headed to the weight room for a workout en français.  Merci Clément!

BONJOUR! French A — 6th graders first skits

 

La Rentrée — 7th grade is back!

French B student in 7th grade have been working on the names of family members using riddles to describe the family.  They started the week completing a puzzle requiring them to solve riddles such as: “C’est le fils de mon père et ma belle-mère”.  Mon demi-frère!

 

La Rentrée — 6th grade is back from their trip!

French A students reviewed greetings and introductions in a Wagon Wheel activity, introducing puppet friends as they went around the circle.  Afterwards, they practiced the alphabet with a “Grab It!” activity and then in a variety of different stations where they had to make the letter/accent they heard using clay, wiki sticks, rice etc.

Honors French C gets back to school with LES MONSTRES!

We have started off the year working on speaking ALL FRENCH ALL THE TIME in class through a variety of partner activities sharing information that only one partner has.  We’ve also been learning body parts and drawing and describing monsters.  Today we are practicing body parts and adjectives with a series of monster pictures that students must describe to a partner who then locates each specific monster on their own sheet (monsters scrambled).  Hearing a lot of good French from this group!  Bravo!

les Boules

French A classes ended a great year with individual presentations about summer vacation plans.  We then watched the ultimate French summer vacation movie: La Gloire de mon père, and finally practiced the classic game of BOULES or PÉTANQUE, as featured in the movie.

Bonnes vacances d’été!  I hope you all have fun and make memories, just like Marcel!

 

Jenga Exam Review

French B students reviewed vocabulary for our final exam today while playing Jenga.  Each Jenga block has a French number corresponding to a question they must answer to score a point.  Teams could win in two ways: by getting the most points in a round or when the other team toppled the game.
