French A

Au Stade

The day before Spring Break began, 6th grade French students brought in materials to have a competition to see who could build the best French soccer stadium.  Requirements were to include a certain amount of new vocabulary from our lesson about le football and to do some research about team logos and colors.  The projects had to be completed before the bell rang, so the race was on to complete the project in the allotted 45 minutes!

Stations on a Friday morning

French A 6th graders mixed it up today in three different stations as they reviewed for Monday’s quiz together.

Station 1 had them correcting their review packet and then practicing saying large numbers with the “Egg Game”.

Station 2 asked them to practice making questions with question words by rolling dice.  Students had the option to get creative and add something extra to their sentence for bonus points.  Students wrote their questions.

Station 3 reviewed vocabulary for telling time and subjects you study along with the verb avoir.  Students played a board game as they practiced.  Students said the answer aloud.


Describing your classroom

French A 6th graders reviewed classroom vocabulary and prepositions of location today by describing crazy classroom scenes to partners who had to draw the descriptions they heard.



Où est Charlie (Waldo)? FRENCH A learns prepositions of location

French A 6th graders worked in small groups to create a photo project illustrating the correct usage of various prepositions of location. They enjoyed a rare opportunity to take their cell phones out of their lockers and go out on campus to take some photos, burning up some afternoon energy before MS Spirit Night.  Some of the results are adorable!

Negative Sculptures

French A 6th graders collaborated to create sculptures illustrating the proper way to make verbs negative using “ne…pas”.  They had 30 minutes to complete the project and were required to attach 6 examples with different subjects and verbs to their creation.

BONJOUR! French A — 6th graders first skits


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.

Au stade de football

French A 6th graders have done a nice job researching French soccer teams and making displays of stadiums where they have also labeled our new vocab about the popular sport.  Here are a few examples.

AVOIR BESOIN DE: Board Game Practice

6th grade French A students practice school supply vocabulary learned last semester, our new verb: AVOIR, and talking about what they need (avoir besoin de) with a lively board game.

Tofuburgers! Learning the negative in French A.

My 6th graders have gotten very creative with their sculptures depicting the 3 parts of a negative verb: NE/N’ + conjugated verb + PAS.

We have a carrousel, a map of North America, a bed, a basketball hoop, dynamite, a French flag, a butterfly with leaves attached, a Pace castle, and more!
