Hey there, fantastic Grade 5/6 parents,
It’s been a great week in our classroom so far, filled with French language adventures and hard work.
Exploring French Through Surveys
Today, our French class took a creative turn, and we ventured into the world of surveys. But wait, it’s not your typical survey – we made it fun and real life!
We started by brainstorming a list of French words students already knew. And let me tell you, it was quite a list! Some of these words, we didn’t even realize were French. Can you believe how much French we encounter in our daily lives?
Next, we divided our French word list into two categories: French words related to food and other French words. It was fascinating to see how many words fell into each category. French is all around us, especially when it comes to delicious food!
But here’s where the real magic happened. Armed with our newfound knowledge of French words, we decided to use a key phrase: “Que préfères-tu?” This means “What do you prefer?” We turned our classroom into a survey hub, asking our classmates about their preferences.
We surveyed each other about our favourite foods from the list we had generated. We then tallied up the responses, and started creating a colorful graph that showed our preferences. It was a fantastic way to apply the French language in a real-life context.
Celebrating Hard Work with a Party
Speaking of fun, I’ve been so thrilled that our students have been working incredibly hard this month, focusing on their behaviour and work ethic. I’m super proud of each and every one of the students for their dedication!
To celebrate our achievements, we’re having our first party this Friday! 🎉 But no party is complete without snacks, right? We kindly ask that you send a snack with your child to share with the class on Friday if possible. However, due to allergies, please remember not to include any nuts in your snack.
Our party will be a movie with lots of yummy snacks. It’s the perfect way to unwind and enjoy the end of our first month. Plus, it’s an excellent opportunity to bond with our classmates, especially those who are leaving us.
We’re looking forward to a fantastic party filled with laughter and joy.
That’s all for now, Grade 5/6 superstars!
Au revoir et à bientôt!
