French Class celebrates Canada’s 150th birthday!To honour Canada’s 150th birthday, we will be doing a number of activities in june. All students will be invited to bring a photo (or a digital photo e-mailed to me or on a USB) of a place in Canada that they have visited with their families. We will be practicing interrogative expressions to discuss where students went, when did they travel, with whom did they travel, who did they visit, what did they see, how did they travel and why did they go to that location. It will be interesting to see all the wonderful places in Canada that we have discovered! Bonne fête, Canada!
We have also been learning the names of the provinces and territories in French.
A map in progress!
We will be hiding the Canadian flag each day somewhere in the classroom; students will use full sentences and structures learned in class, including the prepositions taught this year, to help determine where it is.
So the grande question now is: Où est le drapeau canadien?
As well, the Gr. 7/8 class has started a mini-unit called les jeux de juin. This week we learned basic vocabulary and structures for playing card games in French. It was fun practicing this vocabulary!
Bonne fin de semaine,
