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 2 Marmara learning and “making” new vocabulary words

Grade 2 at Marmara read the book “Çilli” about a young chick who did not keep his promise to the Scruffy Black Cat. They learnt new vocabulary words such as “endişe”, “nefis”, “yoluk”, “kiler”, “kil” which they then “rewrite” with letter tiles. They were split into teams and were very eager to be the ones to get the spelling correct, as you can see from the video. They also made sentences with these new words.

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”.
