Comment ça va?

As the school year is coming to an end we decided to start learning about emotions and how we feel. At the beginning of every session I ask the students "Comment ça va?" (how are you?) and they respond with "ça va bien" (good) or "ça va mal" (bad). Then I thought there are so many other feelings they could be expressing. Here is what we've been learning so far.

  • Je suis malade
  • Je suis fatigué
  • Je suis content
  • Je suis triste
  • J'ai faim
  • J'ai soif
  • J'ai froid
  • J'ai chaud
  • J'ai peur
  • Je suis fâché
The Ladybugs are showing you what "Je suis fâché" means:

Les devoirs

"Les Serpents"  have started to have homework. It will normally be given on a Wednesday and due the following Friday. They have the following Wednesday to get it in without a penalty to their grade. Devoirs (homework) is always worth 10 points and is graded down if mistakes are made. There will be tests to measure how well they are retaining and these scores will be figured into their grades. They have a dark blue Seabury folder for their French papers.They take them from class when they have homework. Homework so far has been crosswords on the room of the house.

"Les Serpents" act out and sing the song "Notre Zoo."

Les navigateurs

This week it was les Navigateurs' turn to play a listening comprehension game to learn body parts in French. 
Each child threw a die and drew the part of the body that corresponded to the number. As they drew, Madame Tulasne repeated that part of the body.

Les navigateurs all had a turn to draw a body part and this is what they created.
