Students in one of our Gr. 4 classes have been extending their learning of French by watching a cartoon video series, "Muzzy" and creating a personal dictionary of new vocabulary that they have learned. We have been meeting once a week at lunch hour.
The Gr. 6 class is starting a new unit called "Les animaux: mythes et réalités"! We had fun this week surveying our class for our most favorite animals and pets. We will also explore the topic of less popular animals and choose one to describe and defend, giving our opinions and describing briefly its positive attributes in French.
Finally, I thoroughly enjoyed meeting with parents this past week during our student-led conferences! All students did a fine job reading their compositions and doing the "Spin the Wheel" activity with their parents. Please be sure to turn in your comment forms if you have not done so already.
