Grade 3 and the process of making crêpes

Grade 3 French students guessed, then searched and found the ingredients for making crêpes. By doing so, they also demonstrated that they were in full command of their food vocabulary from Grade 2. They then wrote up a recipe for their crêpes. After making the crêpes last Friday, today they also showed the process, step by step, through which the crêpes were made, using new vocabulary words such as “je mets, je mélange”.


Grade 1 Hisar and the weather

This week, Hisar students looked for Istanbul on the map of Turkey. They then searched for cities beginning with an A. They then looked at yesterday, today and tomorrow’s weather conditions at the cities of their choice. This enabled them to reinforce their understanding of the past, present and future tenses by using suffixes such as “bulut-lu, bulut-luydu, bulutlu olacak“.


Grade 1 Marmara exploring the weather

Grade 1 students have been learning about different weather terms in Turkish class. They brainstormed about what they would need to present the weather to an audience. These were the days of the week, months and the name of cities. So we chose to start with the map of Turkey, so as to learn the location of different cities in the country. We also looked into different sentence structures such as “bugün hava güneşli”, and how it is different from “dün hava güneşliydi”, and how the suffixes change according to past, present and future tenses.


Grade 2 Marmara sorting healthy foods into groups

This week, both Turkish classes worked together to demonstrate their understanding of the five food groups. First, they drew and wrote the names of at least one food item belonging to one of these groups on a small card. They then strung them through a piece of ribbon to make a “food necklace”. Next, the language A students called out a food group, such as “tahillar”. The same student then questioned their peers about what the food item was called, such as “simit” (the most popular item among students). We continued the activity for other food groups, such as “meyveler”, “sebzeler”, “süt ürünleri”.


Grade 3 Hisar building compound sentences in French

Students are beginning to form compound sentences in French. In this video, Lucy and Dapo demonstrate their understanding of how we can replace proper nouns with pronouns, such as replacing “Isabelle” with “elle”. Next week, we will be looking at definite, indefinite and partitive articles by building their own class “gender chart” of the nouns we have learned so far in French.


EY 5 Marmara matching body part words and images

This week, EY 5 started their new unit, identifying body parts such as “göz, kulak, diz, dirsek, bilek”. They then sorted the images and words by identifying the first letter sound of each body sound.


Grade 2 Marmara sorting foods and thinking about categories

This week, Grade 2 looked into different food items in Turkish and wrote the ones they liked the most on post-its. We then collected all this data on a poster, where we tried to figure out how we could put all these foods into different categories in Turkish. We looked at how these foods were different – “faklı” or the same “aynı” or “benzer” similar.

 

 


Grade 2 and healthy foods in French

Grade 2 at Hisar were hard at work this week. They were determined to learn all the new words related to healthy foods, and they succeeded. They have conquered the vocabulary challenge this week, with all the outstanding effort and willingness they showed to learn while having fun.


EY5 Hisar and body parts in Turkish

As we start our new unit about parts of the body, eager EY5 students identified different body parts through the song “Üç Kulaklı bir adam”, then went on to find the words matching the picture cards. There were quite a few laughs when they tried to identify the beginning sound / letter of each body part. While working on the smartboard, some very comical body parts such as “barmak”, “darmak” or “iyak” came up. However, they were all able to find and write the correct letter.

 


Grade 1 Hisar looking into words about water and weather

In Grade 1 Turkish language A, we started our new unit related to the water cycle and the weather. Students looked into different vocabulary words related to the weather and water.

Looking for ways to say “cloudy” correctly.

Students observed the interaction between hot and cold water, as well as thinking about how hot and cold feels to the touch. They then “cracked the alphabet code” to find words related to the experiment.
