How much of the alphabet song can you recall? The letters and the other words? Try to recall as much as you can with a partner or two.
2. Alphabet et chanson
We continued practicing the alphabet and song.
3. TPR - Actions
2 student leaders helped teach the 4 students who recently joined our class while the rest of class worked in small groups to review the actions and vocabulary. Then we practiced the actions as a class with me leading.
We had a discussion in class (that turned into a story) using the following phrases:
il/elle a - he/she has
il y a - there is/are
il/elle va - he/she goes
**il/elle veut - he/she wants **new structure
The story was about a girl who doesn't have a dog but who wants a dog. So she went to different places until she found a dog that she wanted.
I had the class stand in the center of the class. Using the vocabulary we have learned so far, I made 2 opposite statements and pointing at the 2 sides of the classroom. Students walked to the side that fit them. For instance:
J'aime les chiens - RIGHT - Je n'aime pas les chiens - LEFT
So students who like dogs went to the right and students who don't like dogs went to the left. This was a way for us to use language, get to know one another more, and check our level of understanding.
