French B

Ma Famille

We have been studying vocabulary and structures with the end goal of being able to describe the members of your family with hair/eye colors and other adjectives along with giving their age.  Students were put in groups and asked to imagine that they were all a crazy family.  Each of them came up with a character for that family and they wrote descriptions about each other.  Some decided to play the role of a family pet and so we had a dog, a cat, a parakeet, and a squirrel!

La Chandeleur 2018

French B students wrapped up some work on quantities and vocabulary about place settings by making the crêpe batter this year for all French classes to then make crêpes in celebration of La Chandeleur.

Défilé de Mode — Un-fashion show

7th graders ended their lesson on describing clothing with an un-fashion show.  Each team selected a theme and then each team member wrote a paragraph to describe his/her outfit and then another member of the team read the description as he/she modeled.

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.

 

 

La Rentrée — 7th grade is back!

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.

La météo

French B students were recently working on weather vocabulary and reviewing a variety of activities with the verb FAIRE.  Here are some skits that they performed before Spring Break.

Different modalities in Stations

French B students review for a quiz by working through different modalities (speaking, listening, reading, writing…plus some culture) in 3 different groups today.  Some students are correcting their own homework practice from a key I’ve given them and then doing a short reading about Provence and Marseille and comparing their own city in a chart,  a second group is reviewing vocab from this lesson (mettre le couvert) and mettre in the present tense with a game of Battleship, and the third group is reading a crazy place setting description while their partner draws and then switching roles.  Those finished the activity early practice asking and answering questions about their houses and meals by drawing cards from the bag at their station.

 

French A students also worked in stations to practice telling time and talking about the courses.  There stations included a grammar station, an interactive performance station where they worked with clocks, and a game station.

Honors French C students have had two days of stations, working on and presenting skits,completing some listening activities with a laptop station, practicing some speaking prompts, and reviewing vocabulary reflexive verbs in all tenses with the games of WAR and EIFFEL TOWER.

We all enjoyed a change of pace at the end of January!
