Bonjour nos parents et le printemps
In Grade 8 - Our French Students have finished working on our PBL entitled: The Earth without art is just “eh”! You will be able to enjoy the masterpieces that they have produced and listen to an explanation of their artwork by clicking on the links found in the Communications section of the school website you can also access the webpage by the link at the top of this newsletter. Mme. Maroney was instrumental in creating this separate web page for French and in displaying their i-movies. Mille fois merci, Mme. Maroney!
We are currently studying Unit 8, Au Marché!
The chapter focuses on grocery shopping, mealtime, food group vocabulary as well as meal preparation. Students will eventually be working on a cultural project that involves presenting the preparation of an authentic French recipe to the class using I movie or the Snapguide app on their Ipads.
