French - 2nd Quarter 2012/2013
Students in both seventh and eighth grade French are enjoying all of the benefits of our new textbook program which offers several features to challenge students to excel in second language learning. An integrated DVD component, filmed in France, offers students the opportunity to perfect their listening skills and to experience a wide variety of accents and dialects associated with the Francophone world. As well, a coordinated online program, known as Classzone, is available to all students to remain in constant contact with the language in reinforcing nightly review of both an oral and written nature.
Both grade levels are working upon their writing skills as they complete assignments which will be included in each student’s portfolio. Seventh graders are learning about nationality, perfecting their numbers, and expressions of feelings as well as asking and answering questions about where others are and what they are doing. Eighth graders will be describing their rooms as well as the objects they own along with their size and color. In addition, they will be learning about common, every day French expressions, what sounds and noises are French, and typical gestures associated with the French. To reinforce and perfect the reading skill, a French language periodical, Allons-y!, is used in class.
All students have the opportunity to become involved with French studies at an active level through S.T.A.R. Credit. Many students are now involved with preparing for this year’s spring event, Légendes en Concert, a review/revue to showcase all of the talent your children possess. Please lend your support by attending our monthly parent meetings.
I am always available for extra help and guidance to aid student achievement, and the most efficient way to contact me is through the Parent Portal.
