This week ….
…students in Spanish C began their new unit, Cuentos y películas (stories and movies). To start the unit, students watched the movie Valentín, which is a sad but cute film about a young boy growing up in Argentina. The story focuses on the challenges he encounters in his life. So far we have learned how to describe, and give our opinions on, some of the characters from the movie. In this unit we will also learn more about how to use past tenses accurately so that students can eventually write their own short children’s story.
…students in Spanish A started their new unit, Mi familia y mi casa (family and home). In this unit students will learn how to describe their families and where they live. So far students have learned how say who the members of their family are and what they are like.
…students in French 6 have been working on their Chez moi (my home) performance task. Students are creating an imovie that will be a guided tour of their home. Students have planned what they will say and are now in the process of putting together the movie and practicing their commentary.
Thank you to parents who came along to PTCs this week. I look forward to seeing more parents next week!
