Guest Speakers!

Three French 7 classes had the wonderful opportunity of listening to a guest speaker talk about life in France.  In periods 5 & 6, Ms. Maryam Moeini-Khadivi talked about the school system in France and answered questions about living in France.  In period 9, Ms. Sybil Walsh discussed living and working in rural France and how she came to learn French while she was there.  It was a relished opportunity, and I hope we have more opportunities to welcome guest speakers in the future!

Une chanson !

The French 7 song/music video extra credit project is underway!  15 students stayed after school on Monday, February 13, and wrote their own song in French about likes and dislikes.  If you'd like to get on board, I will announce the next meeting after break where we will finish up the song and talk about producing the music video!

Les mini-livres: fantastiques !

I was very impressed with your mini-livres.   Not only with the French (which was excellent!), but with your illustrations, which so many of you creatively used to visually convey the meaning of your words.  Bravo!  They will be on display on the bulletin board soon, be sure to peruse them if you arrive early to class!

J'aime et je n'aime pas

I enjoyed seeing what kinds of sentences you could come up with using the terms "J'aime" (I like) and "Je n'aime pas" (I don't like).  I am looking forward to seeing what creations you will come up with for your Mini-Livres for Tuesday!
