Welcome to grade 6 page. Here you will find information about what we are doing in class.
May: We have finished our spontaneous conversations. Through this spontaneity of conversation, our oral confidence has improved both in listening and speaking. We are now starting our last reading unit where we will learn some new vocabulary, continue to develop our reading strategies, and finally end with some writing related to our story.
April: We have been doing lots of work practicing talking spontaneously about our talents and those of others. we are almost finished preparations for our final presentations of our talents. These presentations and spontaneous conversation with Mme. will be starting on Monday May 24th.
In this unit we have been talking about our character traits and flaws. We will be moving into more oral activities about our talents so that we can describe our talents and answer simple questions about what we do, why we like to do it, etc. This will help us to increase our oral confidence in French.
March: Welcome back after a nice break! We are continuing to work on our big unit. We are writing small resumes to apply for a volunteer position. We are continuing to practice our oral French skills in talking about ourselves and others.
February: We have learned some more vocabulary and had more practice using our reading strategies. We will be starting our next big unit in which we will be learning how to write an autobiography, talking about multiple intelligence and how to talk to others about our strengths and weaknesses.
January: Welcome to 2017! We will be starting the year by presenting our magazines, that we finished in December, to the class. We will then be strating our first book for grade 6 to read in French. We will be reading it as a class and doing some comprehension activities as well as learning to talk about the characters in French.
December: We have been learning about different parts of a magazine and starting to work on our own magazines. We will be learning how to write a profile of a person before diving fully into magazine production.
We are diving fully into production of our magazines! We will be working on them every day in class so please come prepared to work with your binder.
November: We are learning about originality and working towards creating our own magazines. We have already looked at different games and activities that are found in magazines. We have chosen our themes and started to create our own activities that match our theme for our magazines.
October: French Club will be starting on Monday October 3rd. Meetings will be held during the second half of first break in room 214. Come out to have fun practicing and gaining confidence in French. September: Welcome back to French class! I have enjoyed meeting you all these past two weeks. We have started with "Moi sur une page" where students have written and drawn information about themselves on a piece of paper. We will be doing presentations of our work to the class starting Tuesday September 20. After our presentations are complete we will be starting our first major unit "Original et Genial"
