Summer Reading Recommendations for Turkish Language B Learners


Grade 2 French homework for the new unit

Grade 2 French have started their new unit on countries and nationalities. We are currently reading the abbreviated version of a book entitled “le loup qui voulait faire le tour du monde” :


We will begin by learning vocabulary related to the countries the wolf visits.

It would benefits students greatly if they could review the vocabulary on linguascope as well, by going on the linguascope website, under “beginner”, “mon environment”, and finally “les pays” and completing the assignments there.

Students will also get a copy of the simplified version of the book next week and watch the following video :

Students should be login into linguascope, go on “beginner”, then “moi et ma famille”, then click on “Desciption du visage”. They should complete all the activities there. They can also review other vocabulary sections that have been covered until now.

Wishing you a wonderful break.

Grade 1 Hisar sorting weather items into categories

Grade 1 at Hisar worked on sorting out pictures related to seasons into categories. They were not told that these were related to seasons, and came up with some very interesting ideas. Some unkowingly sorted them out according to the seasons (naming them, like Denis did), others categorized them according to different clothing items, the change in trees, or weather.
