French C Honors

Je suis malade! Spectacle de marionnette chaussette!

French C Honors students have been practicing how to talk about being sick and what to say and do to get better!





le Yéti

French C Honors students read a children’s book called le Yéti, a sort of modern-day arctic Cinderella story and remade it into a puppet show.  In some cases, the students reimagined the story in a different setting.  Here are the results of about 4 days of puppet creation, script writing, editing, and rehearsal.  Please forgive grammar mistakes when le Yéti speaks. These are inspired by the book as Monsieur le Yéti hasn’t had Middle School French and his grammar isn’t perfect….

Le Yéti by Christine Naumann-Villemin, Marianne Barcilon (illustrations)

La solitude, quel fléau ! Même un yéti peut en souffrir. Alors, quand il découvre une belle botte perdue dans la neige… chouette, chouette, chouette ! Une formidable occasion pour descendre dans la vallée et peut-être rencontrer l’âme soeur ? Ou, à défaut, l’amitié ?



8th grade French students have been learning about how to talk about their past and tell stories using and contrasting two different past tenses, le passé composé et l’imparfait.  One of our activities was to interview an older family member or teacher about his or her childhood and then to report to the class.  Here are some examples of student writing.


French C Honors classes have been practicing reflexive verbs, commands, and vocabulary for household chores.  They put together some scenes from the life of Cinderella.


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!

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.


Making our sock puppets for the Health Unit

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.
