I was so pleased to see the effort put into the family presentations this week! Thank you for all the hard work given the short amount of time given to prepare! Students were given an opportunity to give feedback to their peers based on the criteria we discussed.
Next week, we'll begin our new theme in Social Studies: LIFE IN THE 1800's. We will begin investigating life when the Aboriginals were the first inhabitants of Canada. This will lead to European settlement and the resulting consequences of contact with the Aboriginals (ie. conflict/cooperation). Learning about PIONEER LIFE has always been a favourite for my Grade 3's so I look forward to a fun unit!
Bonjour! I'm so happy to be back at school again! I did not send any work home in "le cahier" this week but I would like every student to please bring in a photo of his/her family (or post a picture on Seesaaw) by FRIDAY.
We will be creating and practising a presentation of our families to be presented next week.
Here are a few short videos that we are using in class to help us create our presentations:
1- Vidéo: La famille:
2- Chanson- La famille (Vocabulaire de la famille):
In this week's cahier, students are asked to create an Olympic mascot that represents Canada and the winter Olympics. They also need to give their mascot a name (Ma mascotte s'appelle...) and write in french, the type of animal that it is (Ma mascotte est un(e):...). Please click here to use "Word Reference" as a translator: Word Reference- French IF he/she is able to, please complete the bottom 2 sections on the sheet (Ma mascotte a - "My mascot has"-describing 2 physical features, and Ma mascotte porte - "My mascot is wearing"). Please use last week's sheet on the winter sport equipment to complete what the mascot is wearing.
Here is a cute video of this year's Olympic mascot in Pyeong Chang:
We've been having fun focusing on "les olympiques" at school. Here is my recording of this week's sheet in "le cahier" related to winter sporting equipment. Please practise the pronunciation of these words at home. We will be creating sentences with these words at school.
Bonjour! A note will be sent home on Friday outlining the French presentations on the Ontario Community projects. Presentations will begin on WEDNESDAY. Please take a look at your child's project on his/her Google Drive. Below is a recording of a sample presentation if your child requires help at home with pronunciation:
A review sheet was sent home last Thursday for Wednesday's SS test on Communities in Ontario. Please take some time to review the sheets in "le cahier" related to "les communautés agricoles, forestières et minières".
We've also begun our group project on a community of choice. Students have been researching a comunity in Ontario to create a detailed Slide-Show. Research is related to location, natural resources and employment in the community.
