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” :

leloupquivoulait

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 :


French snow day work Grade 2

Dear Parents,

Students should log into the linguascope website, and follow these steps :

1. Go to “beginner”.
2. Click on “mon environment”.
3. Click on “Le recyclage”.

All activities under this sections should be completed.
Students should try to find items that can be recycled at home, such as paper, empty cans (without sharp edges), as well as glass and plastic items to bring to school after the break.
Students are encouraged to explore all other vocabulary sections as well, especially “la nourriture” and “la météo”.

Wishing you a wonderful break.


French snow day homework Grade 3

Dear Parents,

While we usually do not assign homework for French, Friday is a day students have French class. It would therefore be beneficial for them to continue working on their vocabulary related to physical descriptions, “Description du visage”.

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 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 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.


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.

dictionariespart2

This week, Grade 2 were learning the names of vegetables in French. They then decided to build their vocabulary further by looking for more vegetables. Once each group creates their own lists, they will “make” a French vegetable alphabet soup. By writing the first letter of each letter, they will also review the sounds of the alphabet and identify which other words start with that letter. For instance, if they added broccoli, they could say “bleu”.
