Welcome to grade 4 page. Here you will find information about what we are doing in class. Please visit the songs page to help you continue to practice your oral French comprehension skills.
In grade 4 we will be starting to read and write in French and we will have 4 marks this year instead of just 1 as in primary. We will now have a mark for each of the following strands: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. If you have any questions regarding this change from primary core french, please contact me at the school.
January: We have started our first French book! We will be reading it in class before doing reading comprehension activities and a summary written task. We will then start our next big unit in February.
December: We are working on our final projects for term 1. We are using vocabulary we have learned to talk about celebrations to compare our favourite celebration with one of the French-Ontario celebrations we learned about this term in class. We are doing all the work and writing in class before the holidays. We will then present our projects the first week back in January. You may continue to practice saying your presentation over the holidays so that we are ready to go when we come back together.
October: We have worked on our alphabet, classroom objects and calendar. We are gaining confidence in leading the class in our opening routine of "super prof:" We have also gotten our first introduction to reading and writing in French. We are starting our first major unit very soon where we will learn about french Ontario celebrations and how to discuss them in comparison to our own favourite celebration.
September: Welcome to French! I have enjoyed seeing many familiar faces again and meeting some new faces this past week. We have started the year review some basics that we will be building upon this year. We will be starting our first unit "Je parle francais" in the first 2 weeks. We will be learning some more simple phrases and vocabulary to continue to develop our spoken French and oral communication.
