This morning you are working to prepare for an in-class oral presentation.
At the beginning of your next class, you will be asked to share information about yourself, your family & your friends. Think about the vocabulary and structures you have been working on throughout the course and in this last unit. You may want to include:
your name, age, birthday
with whom/where you live
who is in your family
how you & your family are (describe)
how you all get along & what you do (explain)
what you like to eat & why (describe & explain)
who your friends are & what you do with them
….. and anything else that you have learned that fits with the topic!
You may have your text with you, but you should do your best to practise it so that you are confident saying what you want to say with some expression and eye contact (Not staring at your paper!)
You will not be handing in your text. The assessment will be based on what you say & how you say it.
You should be prepared to answer a couple of questions at the end of your presentation.
***Tomorrow is your end of French 10 presentational write. Your goal is to communicate on the topic and to show what you can communicate (in writing) at this time. Remember that at this point in your learning, your goal is to:
use more than 1 sentence to explain & describe
use more variety of vocabulary & expressions to personalize what you communicate
be creative & show as much as you can of what you have learned in French 9 & 10
***To prepare for your summative write, you can
review food vocab, describing words for foods, phrases to express what you like/don’t like & why
review vocabulary & phrases for describing places
review phrases for ordering, paying & complaining
review any grammar points and structures you have learned throughout the quarter (tenses … present, past, future with aller + infinitive, il faut + infinitive | use & placement of pronouns & adjectives)
Reply to Mme’s question using the sentence builder on p 65 of your “Moi, ma famille, mes amis” unit
Make sure that you include ‘how often’
Then, use the expressions from the back of your first unit package to “react” to at least two people & try to share an opinion or provide an explanation (For ex: Me too, I like going to my friends’ houses because it’s fun … Moi aussi, j’aime aller chez des amis parce que c’est amusant.)
Complete p 67 + review the sentence builder on p 68 + complete p 69
This is a good review of weather phrases & allows you to include more detail in your sentences

***Getting a good night of sleep & eating breakfast/lunch is the best thing you can do before an evaluation. Please do not stay up late ‘cramming’ or scrolling through social media. Your French brain doesn’t work as well when it’s exhausted!
