le mercredi 23 mars - 701 et 702
1) Students presented one poem from their Poetry Project "Mon livre des poemes". Students picked one poem of their choice and after providing an introduction, read/presented their poem to the class.
*All students finished presenting UNLESS they were absent or did not compelte and hand in a project.
2) Students are learning about the verb tense "Futur Simple" to learn how to express in writing and speaking, something they WILL DO in the future.
3) Students watched a video of a song by the French Singer, Zaz. The song uses a Futur Simple verb phrase construction, repeatedly. It is also the name of the song, "On Ira" which means "WE WILL GO". Please find the song with lyrics attached in the youtube video, below.
4) After thinking critically about the images vs the lyrics in the music video, we started to look at the lyrics of the song. Please see the PowerPoint I put together with images that reflect the lyrics ( as found attached, below). Looking at, reading and discussing the words and images in the PowerPoint allow the students to practice the following:
- Learning and seeing the Futur Tense used in an authentic text
- Practicing Reading Comprehension skills by using word recognition skills such as:
Instant recognition ( previously learned words)
Word order clues
Word structure Clues ( looking at prefixes and suffixes)
Word Families ( words that are related to other English, French, Spanish, etc. words)
Similarities - comparing new words to similar English/French words
Words within words - deriving words from internal clues in the words.
- Learning about cultures and customs around the world
- Geography, History, Pop Culture, etc.
At the bottom of the blogpost today are 3 youtube videos made by former students. WE will be doing a project that is similar whereby the students will write a sotrybook about plans for things THEY WILL DO as they imagine a trip across Canada (using the provinces, territories, Canaidan Geography and Canadian Symbols vocabulary they have been learning). the projects below differ in that the writing was based on personal hopes and dreams of things the students who completed those projects had in their minds as things they WOULD DO ( WILL DO when they can).
