French Happenings Mai 2014
The end of the year is upon us in French. Here are some special things we are working on in May.
Kindergarten - since I unexpectedly missed Spring Sing (major sad face), I am brainstorming a special event I can do with Kindergarten to make it up to them.
Level 1 - is learning everything about the calendar and also will be preparing to be customers in the 4th level fruit market.
Level 2 – is planning a special event. They are also researching personal questions of interest about France or French, and preparing to be customers in the 4th level Fruit market.
Level 3 – is researching personal questions of interest about France / French and preparing for an end-of-year event. They are also preparing to be customers in the 4th level fruit market.
Level 4 – Is researching castles in France and planning a fruit market where younger French students can come “buy” a snack (in French, of course.)
Level 5 – Is mastering the play l‘Arbre ungali. We will set a performance date soon. They will also be learning geography, names, and flags of the 25 French-speaking countries in Africa.
Level 7/6 - Has finished working on the play l’Arbre ungali. They are beginning to read the book, Y a-t-il des ours en Afrique? by Satomi Ichikawa and researching three Francophone countries in Africa, Morocco, Senegal, and Madagascar.
Level 8 – Has completed work on the play Veux-tu danser? and is finishing a verb blitz. They are preparing a “progressive dinner” in Switzerland, Belgium, and France. Teams are researching the “most beautiful small town” in their country and inviting classmates to a progressive dinner with typical foods from that country. We are excited to have Justine, our college student from France and Belgium, to lend her expertise. (Justine’s mother is an award-winning chef on French television and Justine inherited lots of culinary talent from her!)
Some Middle School students continue to prepare for their trip to France, which includes immersion in a French family, next month. The countdown begins!This entry was posted in French. Bookmark the permalink.
