Vocabulary Practice

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!

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!

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.
