French C Honors

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!

Describing Art

French C Honors students have been learning how to talk about and describe artwork, especially paintings.  Here, they worked with a partner to describe a painting and have their partner draw it without being able to see it.  Our results got recycled before we could take photos, but here we are working on it!

PUPPET SHOWS about HEALTH in FRENCH C HONORS

French C Honors students performed 3 skits they had written for their doctor, nurse, and patient/parent sock puppet creations.  We had a lot of fun watching and we even had Ms. Norton and Mr. Anderson stop by to watch.

I’m proud of them for speaking French and working together as we designed doctors, nurses, moms, and patients in anticipation of writing skits on Tuesday where we will practice all of our health related vocabulary and verbs in command form.

La vie quotidienne de Cendrillon

Honors French C has been working on reflexive verbs along with the vocabulary for household chores.  We created presentations retelling the story of Cinderella/Cendrillon on the PhotoPeach Website.

Art Lesson

In Honors French we are beginning a lesson on how to talk about art in French, so we invited Mrs. Sibley to come in and give us an introduction on how to read a painting. She also taught us about the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, and Beaubourg and got us up to speed on the different types of art found in the Louvre vs. Orsay and how you recognize an Impressionist painting.  Merci, Mrs. Sibley!

Eiffel Tower

French C Honors playing the “Eiffel Tower” game.  Each group of 3-4 has a “juge” with all of the questions and answers.  Players compete to write the correct answer (as determined by the “juge”) and are allowed to climb up one spot on the Tower for each correct answer.  If no players get the right response, the “juge” climbs up one spot.    Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 11.55.27 AMScreen Shot 2015-01-22 at 11.55.19 AM

We’ve learned vocabulary for describing paintings and our wonderful art teacher, Mrs. Sibley came to talk to us about Impressionism so that we would be prepared for our field trip to the High Museum to view an exhibit of Cézanne and other French artists. A link to the photos taken by Mrs. Inman (francophile herself) is below. Special thanks as well to Mrs. Pottorff and Mrs. Eichenlaub who organized lunch at Café Lapin and drove the group!
