French Grade 5 , Unit 1:

Bonjour Grade 5,

We have learned a lot during the unit called” Language with the use of description and questions can support our responsibility to be caring”.

We have learned to name animals parts and use adjectives to describe them. They choose a domestic animal ( a cat or a dog) of their choice and they created a description and we applied what we have learned in class. We are sharing our description with a small video on ”Flipgrid” that we made in class. Here is the link to our work. Enjoy!

Unit 1 : Mon animal préféré

Bonjour Grade 5,

We have started a new unit and our central idea is Language with the use of description and questions can support our responsibility to be caring.

Our learning intentions for the unit are :

  • Student will be able to name animals parts and use adjectives to describe them.
  • Students will be able to use the verb ”to be” and ”to have” in French.
  • Students will be able to present to the class orally and with a visual their favorite animal.
  • Students will be able to build a dialogue with their classmate after the presentation and ask questions.
  • Students will be able to answer questions from their classmate about their presentations

This last couple of weeks, students have been learning and practicing the new vocabulary of the unit. They use Quizlet to get familiar with the spelling. They have also learn that the spelling adjectives can change with gender and numbers.

Students can practice at home the vocabulary if they wish with Quizlet. I have sent invitation to students to sign up so they can practice.

Au revoir,

Welcome to World Languages Blog

Dear Parents,
Welcome to our World Languages learning community! We would like to take this opportunity to introduce our team and share about how to use this blog to enhance our partnership to support students’ learning.

In our team, we have 3 Vietnamese teachers, 3 French teachers, 1 Chinese Mandarin teacher and 1 Teaching Assistant. All languages teachers are native speakers. More information of individual teacher’s bio can be found in the tab of “About Us” on this blog.

During the first two weeks of school, all of our World Languages classes are focused on Learning to Learn. Students are getting to know their teachers and their new classmates. In order to achieve the school goal towards Excellent Learning, in our classes, we established the class essential agreements and commitments to the actions of being a responsible learner of their own and for others. In the meantime, some basic classroom language is introduced so that students will be able to follow the directions in the target languages in everyday situation.

On the World Languages Blog this year, you will find the curriculum information, language learning information from respective teacher, and it also provides you the opportunity to talk with the children about what we are learning, what we have learned, and what we will learn throughout the year.

We hope you will find this site a useful communication channel between our team and you as parents.
