Speaking Practice

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 ?


La météo



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.


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.



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.





Les ours en papier

French B students practicing describing what people (and bears) wear…

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!

BONJOUR! French A — 6th graders first skits
