Getting into our routines

We started our French Friday routine, with "O Canada", the Lord's Prayer and the reading of a weather announcement, all in French.  There is a link to the Lord's Prayer on the right side of this blog. 

"Bonjour! Aujourd’hui c’est vendredi le 18 septembre 2015.  Il fait 9 degrés et du soleil. Il fait beau, frais et le ciel est bleu. Merci Jésus pour une très belle journée! Bonne fin de semaine!"  Good morning! Today is Friday, September 18, 2015. It is 9 degrees and sunny.  It is nice out, cool and the sky is blue.  Thank you Jesus for a very beautiful day! Have a good weekend!

Reciting the Lord's Prayer

Another routine we are establishing is clock partners.  We used this sheet (below) to help us generate a variety of partners for conversations.  For instance, I will model a dialogue such as the one we did last week to introduce ourselves:  "Je m'appelle Mme Christensen et j'aime faire la cuisine" ("My name is Mme Christensen and I like to cook.") I would then pick a time on the clock and instruct students: "Find your 5:00 partner and have this conversation with them."  

 A short conversation in progress

Here is the written form of the short dialogue we practiced from last week, used in our title page work.

Bravo, mes élèves!  À lundi,

Mme Christensen
