Since the beginning of school year, we all have been focusing on classroom routines and getting to know each others in order for students and I to create a good classroom environnement and to build community so everybody is enjoying learning French all year long.

Recently, we have started a new unit in Grade 1 under the year-long transdisciplinary theme of Who We Are, and our central idea is languages allow me to communicate with the world. This week we learnt about how the alphabet sound in French and what our name looks like in cursive writing. We also learnt the name of a few objects and persons, like in this video:

Our learning intentions for the unit are:

  • Students will be able to recognize the sound of letters in French;
  • Students will be able to talk about common objects and people;
