1. Fr 1 – Clochette – le 11 janvier
What words do you recall for giving action commands? Try to recall and practice these with a partner or two.
2. TPR Actions
We reviewed actions vocabulary together as a class after students volunteered with any actions that they could recall.
We practiced the alphabet and learned the whole alphabet song. Here is a link. Practice on your own. Can you recall what the sentences at the end of the song mean and how they are pronounced?
I introduced the expressions:
il/elle a - he/she has
tu as - you have
And we had a conversation about what different people in the class have. A blue, brown, multicolored bag. A dog. Etc. It is during these types of conversations and stories that it is most important for you to understand 90-100% of what I am saying. If you aren't understanding, then I am going to fast and you've got to help me slow down.
5. Les chiffres
We began learning the numbers 0-10. We will continue practicing these and learning more. It will take to commit them all to memory, just keep paying attention and asking questions!
6. Mois de l'année
We reviewed the months of the year.
7. Révision, discussion, et TOTD
We discussed the class in English and any problems. For the TOTD (Ticket out the Door), students had to write at least one question for me about the class, me, French, anything.
