French

Teacher: Madame Pedersen

Are there any themes for this year?

Some of our themes this year will include: numbers, alphabet, colours, school objects, clothing, body parts, household objects, food, calendar, weather and holidays, family members, animals, transportation, prepositions and occupations. The older grade will also learn about themes exploring my life, school, food and health as well as Canada and the world.

What are the biggest learning/teaching milestones in this grade?

In the early years I find that students are eager to learn a new language, and seek out opportunities to use this language in their everyday lives. Most students have the same french language ability at this stage and are constantly asking for new vocabulary words in french. A big milestone for the early years is becoming a ‘petit prof’ and leading the daily routine in class with little or no assistance from myself or others.
In the middle years, I find there is a wide range of abilities in each of our classrooms. Some of our students come from french immersion programs and find less of a challenge continuing their language learning, while others are just beginning their learning of the French language. A big milestone for these students is gaining the ability to have a conversation in french.

Why are you excited to teach this class?

I love the french language and am always excited to share it with all of my students in fun and creative ways. I believe there are many benefits to learning the french language and about Francophone culture as well.

What are students most excited about?

Our early years students are the most excited to learn about our songs and question routines, as well as Monsieur Hibou, our Francophone owl. In the middle years , students thrive when they are able to converse in and understand the french language, as well as being able to respond to questions about themselves in french. These classes enjoy being able to express their learning through various mini projects.

Are there any major dates or events to note (class trips, concerts, etc)?

There will be many opportunities for adventures in learning this year! We have experienced Festival Du Voyageur, Concours d’art oratoire, and French for Life presentations.
