What would these have to do with French class?
Well, in our Grade 5/6 class each student gets une pince, one clothespin, per full sentence spoken in French. By the end of class, each student has a small pile of pinces on his/her desk. We count all the pinces up at the end of class, resulting in points for the whole group.
Great job so far, 5/6! We will watch a French cartoon and have popcorn once we earn 500 points/pinces.
Here are some samples of work from 4/5 and 5/6 in our unit, Ma Famille et Moi, which has us discussing our family pastimes.
In the 4/5 and 5/6 class we have been enjoying reading a story about a girl's trip to Vietnam to see family. We will continue working on describing our family activities and family members as we work towards our unit project.
In Grade 7/8 we had a quiz on the verb aller and had reading evaluations based on reading passages about inventions in classrooms. We brainstormed some of common frustrations we experience in everyday life and explored how these experiences could inspire an invention.
Now for la grande question: Où est le drapeau français?
