make sure that work from your last class was completed on p 16-22 in your unit
read Le Voyage & be prepared to ask and answer questions about the story
do a quick search for the places that Emily visits in the novel
l’Aqueduc du pont de garde
1. For your research, save some screenshots on your phone of the places & be prepared to share 3 interesting facts about each place with your partner
2. We only have 5 or 6 classes together after the break. The novel is meant to help you maintain your current level of language. If you have been struggling with vocabulary or language structures, this time away from school provides you an opportunity to do some review.
3. I have opened up the archived Language Gym lessons for anyone who wants to go back and keep practising previous learning. Those assignments have a completion date of April 6th, but remember that they will close before then.
I have also added 5 new assignments related to our food unit. They have a completion date of April 14th. One of the tasks is verb practice – past tense irregulars.
You can also select Games from the top bar and choose your own activities to review any of the themes from French 9.
Manage your time over the break so that you relax, have fun & return to school feeling refreshed and ready to continue learning 🙂
consider doing some extra practice on The Language Gym. New assignments have been added related to travel, and using the future & conditional tenses
spend some time reviewing the new vocabulary & structures we’ve been looking at in your new unit
your infographic is due by Monday, April 5th (the day before we return) at 1pm on Teams
simply reading your infographic to your group is boring! Try to think about what you will add to your presentation that isn’t written & how the visuals add to what you are trying to convey.
your reactions to and opinions about what you researched, learned or discovered are an important part of “personalizing” and “adding detail”
you must use the language structures that we’ve worked on in class! Make sure you aren’t relying on a translator for sentence structures because doing that means you are “not meeting” expectations. Only use a device to check a conjugation, for masc/feminine or for an essential vocabulary word.
you must provide a glossary for any words you look up. Maximum 5 words!
review of the sentence builder about getting along with family on p 19
finish reading Jean-Paul et ses amis
To prepare for end of unit assessments on Monday/Tuesday
review unit vocabulary & structures
use The Language Gym -> GAMES (top right) to independently practice verbs structures, vocabulary or previously learned units (after completing the assigned tasks, of course! They will close tomorrow at the latest.)
Remember that strong communicators are good listeners & they ask interesting questions
spend some time thinking about general questions to ask when getting to know a person & what types of follow up questions you can put together in French
As a follow-up to today’s castle conversations & to further prepare for Monday
think about what went well/what could have been better
practice any new vocab that you realized that you needed, but didn’t have for your conversations today
think about ways that you can discuss and personalize rather than ‘just tell’ … talking about what you like/think is cool, whether you would like to go there, what stands out for you etc are all ways of personalizing
Comparing & contrasting your castles is a great way to use some of our unit vocabulary & personalize or share opinions at the same time
Take the time to read the legend of ‘Le monstre du lac Banyoles” & to write 6-10 questions to ask a partner
Reading the legend and re-reading other stories from this unit will help you to prepare for your end of unit presentational write on Monday 🙂
