Bienvenue, tout le monde!

Welcome, everyone!

During October, we will continue learning our AIM story and related vocabulary.  Students can anticipate a listening quiz during the third week of the month to check for basic comprehension of the plot and characters in the story.  If students listen and participate well during class, there is no other preparation necessary for the quiz.  In addition, students are reviewing basic questions and answers about greetings, self, and family.  During speaking activities, students will review spelling, colours, school objects, adjectives, and prepositions. Participation in oral activities is key to a students' success - with repetition, choral practice, and individual practice with a partner, the French vocabulary becomes more comfortable, and fluency develops.  So students, have no fear!  Participate actively in the activity and speak French using the examples and sentences starters given. With practice, you will become a successful French speaker!  We will also begin writing activities together in which we work with the vocabulary related to the AIM story. 

AIM portal   

Look here for the AIM story that you/your child is learning this year. You can view the video, listen and read along with the storyreview vocabulary and related gestures with Wendy, listen and sing along with the songs, learn more about the program and methodology. All of this work will help the student succeed in the expectation of reciting the play with good pronunciation and fluency. You will need a username and password to access this portal, so parents/guardians, please contact me to request that and to have an account set up for your student. If you would like a copy of the story and/or vocab. list sent home, please let me know and I'd be happy to do that too!
