Unfortunately I am unable to be at school today.  Please show your guest teacher what a great group you all are.  I had such great reviews last time and I expect that will be the same for today.  Your guest is there to supervise and observe how awesome you are.  I am counting on you to run the show smoothly while I am not there.  That’s a big responsibility!

9:00 – 9:40 – Mr. Kropf’s Grade 8s, Rm 12:

You can start by watching the video on the verb POUVOIR.  It is just like vouloir so it should be familiar to you.

You should pause the video so that all of the possible conjugations are on the screen for reference.

You will then be given a VouloirPouvoir worksheet where you will have to choose between using Vouloir (to want) or Pouvoir (to be able to).  **Please photocopy enough for all students (try to get two sheets on one page so you only have to copy 45 sheets)

If you are done early, you can work on your Jour du Souvenir wordsearch that I gave you yesterday.

9:55 – 10:35 – Mrs. Taillon’s Grade 4s, Rm 6:

Please gather all of your things and head to room 3B.  Mrs. Adeyemi has agreed to let us use her room.  Merci!

You can start by watching the Bonjour Song.

Then stand for O’Canada.

Followed by praying the Hail Mary in French.

Watch these two videos to learn some new words about the member of your family:  Famille 1, Famille 2

Add the following family vocabulary to your dictionaries:

English French English French
father un père mother une mère
brother un frère sister une sœur
son un fils daughter une fille
husband un mari wife une femme
grandfather un grand-père grandmother une grand-mère
grandson un petit-fils granddaughter une petite-fille
cousin – male un cousin cousin – female une cousine
uncle un oncle aunt une tante
nephew un neveu niece une nièce

Now, get an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of blank paper from your guest teacher and draw the best picture of your family that you can.  Something good enough to be framed and put on the wall.  Make sure you give it a title Ma Famille .  Remember, families come in all varieties.  It is up to you to decide who you include in your picture.  When you are done, label each person in French e.g. ma soeur.  Reminder: if it is a boy you are going to use mon to say ‘my’ and if it is a girl you are going to use ma.  Take your time and have fun.

10:35 – 11:15 – Mrs. Ames’s Grade 4s, Rm 7:

You can repeat what Mrs. Taillon’s class did for French. 🙂

12:15 – 12:55 – Mrs. Pratt’s Grade 6s, Rm 9:

You can repeat what Mr. Kropf’s class did. 🙂

12:55 – 1:35 – Mrs. McPhie’s Grade 6/7s, Rm 10:

You can repeat what Mr. Kropf’s class did. :)**

1:50 – 3:00 – Mrs. Ducker’s Grade 7/8s, Rm 11:

**Mrs. McPhie and Mrs. Ducker’s classes don’t have the Jour du Souvenir worksheet yet.  Please photocopy 30 extras.  You can find a copy on my cart or desk.  Merci!
