There will no longer be any dictees for the remainder of the school year! Youpi!
The students only homework will be reading and recording one book per week from the “Je Lis” website.
We are currently working on Neighborhood vocabulary in French and the students will be creating a map of their neighborhoods throughout this week. They will be presenting it in French (with me) and in English (with Morah Ann Lynn) next week. The places must be labeled in French, and they have the choice to either draw them or use the attached document and cut/glue. Reminder to leave space for a title “Ma Communauté / My Community”, a legend on the side (Légende) and a compass rose (N/S/E/W).
We will be working on this during French class, so do not feel the need to do this for homework 🙂 (Although you can help them out with the drawings a bit if you would like)
We had a lovely time seeing and hearing from Grand parents and special guests yesterday. Here is the bar graph we all made together! Miam Miam!
