Level 4 – Is working on Muzzy!  Write the names of the characters on your worksheet for next Tuesday.  Make sure you bring your papers to French each class. We do not have class Thursday because of the UE field trip.
Level 5 – Is working on the play l‘Arbre ungali.  They don’t have any homework but should try to read and memorize the play at home.
Level 7/6 - Is working on the play l’Arbre ungali.  Work on Feuille d’activité 7A, underlining the answers, for Thursday.
Level 8 - Is working on the play Veux-tu danser?  Work on memorizing the play at home, about 10 minutes a night.

Level 5 has been learning to talk about animals, especially making descriptions.  As they describe animals and have mini-conversations, they practice using masculine and feminine nouns, making adjective agreement, and using common verbs.

Students finished up today by writing a valentine to their chosen animal!  I just love these pictures and valentine cards.





5 Middle School French students are embarking for France this summer with me!  They will visit Paris and the south of France (not bad!) Plus they will spend one week in a homestay, each with a different French family in beautiful Aix-en-Provence. They will even attend junior high with their host sibling. These students are busy getting prepared for this wonderful adventure.France group


What can you do with all this snow?  Kindergarten and Lower El French students know… take some snow, roll it, roll it, and make a snowman!  Un bonhomme de neige.  Making a snowman gives us a reason to say lots of words – clothing, parts of the body, colors, numbers, sizes… and to sing!

Mon bonhomme de neige – My snowman
Il est très content et gros – He is very happy and fat
Avec deux yeux, un nez, une bouche – With two eyes, a nose, a mouth
Et sur la tête un beau chapeau! – And on his head a beautiful hat!
