Assalamu Alaikum Dear Parents,

I would like   to inform that grade 4 students have a small project on the Winter season ( weather, clothing and activities). I am attaching the details of the project.
Students were given the vocabulary in class and we drilled orally all the sentences related to the weather, the clothing and few activities.

Just a few reminders that:
  •  this is the student work (if any help is needed, they can ask me any time) not parents's work.
  • students are required to write directly in French even if the sentences are not perfect or contain some English vocabulary
  • students are not allowed to write in English and use Google translator (it will show) but they can use the on-line dictionary to translate some words.
Jazakum Allah kheiran for your cooperation and support,

So far we are working on our daily vocabulary, using it in sentences, questions and answers. Al Hamdulillah, students are gaining more confidence in speaking French in class.
We are working on our first story “L’Arbre Ungali” and we are busy working on reading comprehension and writing activities related to the story.

  •          We did “Choisis le bon mot”, .Les mots en ordre”, « Les phrases bizarres ».This latest activity was an in class formative evaluation.
  •             We are working on “Les questions totales”
  •            We will start .Les questions partielles”
·         On Wednesday ,December 11,  we are having the 3rd French test : spelling, Les questions totales,  les mots en ordre.
·         The spelling list for Wednesday is:
1.       bon, bonne
2.       correct(e), corrige,  une faute
3.       Les vêtements, l’hiver 
4.       Un pantaloon de neige
5.       Un manteau de neige
6.       Les bottes de neige
7.       Une tuque, une écharpe
8.       Des gants, des mitaines
9.       Je mets mes vêtements d’hiver pour jouer dans la neige avec mes amis/amies.
  •           « Les questions totales » and « Les mots en ordre » are related to the story and students are familiar with both activities as we are working on them each period.
Jazakum Allah Kheiran for your cooperation and your support.
