Septembre: On y va! To ease back into the school year, students will be completing various questionnaires, personal reflections as well as self evaluations. I will also be doing some informal assessments of their oral, reading and writing skills. Our first summative project will be Ma boîte de personnalité (outline of the project is on the left).
Bravo! This year, I will be using Bravo! to motivate students to try their best to communicate with myself as well as their peers in French during class time. Bravo is given when I “catch” a student speaking French to myself or to another student during unstructured times as well as during partner or collaborative work times.
The student will write his/her name on a square in a hundred grid. When the hundred grid is completed, we draw 5 names. The winners of the draw are then allowed to choose a “cadeau” from our panier. The prizes will be school supplies like cool pens, erasers, rulers, stickers, etc.
LECTURE/Reading Students will be expected to have a French book from the library (school or classroom) or from their own collection to read during silent reading. Weekly visits to the library will be scheduled to accommodate this expectation.
