We did the first page of the verb chart test in preparation for the exam.  We then went through some possible things people had written for the writing section and then again came up with what else can me on there and what else ***must be on there.  See this link.  We then did another practice reading.

Mi día

Me llamo María Pérez y tengo diecinueve años. Nací en Málaga, pero vivo en Granada. Soy estudiante de primer curso de Periodismo. De lunes a viernes me levanto a las siete y media, desayuno y camino hasta la universidad.
Entro en clase a las nueve y salgo a la una. Al medio día, como en mi casa y veo la televisión. Por la tarde, estudio hasta las siete y después quedo con mis amigas.
A nosotras nos gusta mucho el cine, el teatro y la música. Los viernes por la noche cenamos pizza y bailamos en la discoteca. Todos los sábados visito a mi familia en Málaga.
El domingo por la tarde regreso a Granada y, si hace sol, salgo con mi perro a dar un paseo. ¡Me encantan los animales!

We finished making the family trees.  We then almost finished going over the questions and the answers to play the game for the exam.  We will be practicing the game for the rest of the week except for doing page 2 of the verb chart as a quiz on Thursday.
Please note, the room colour decides the birth month(s) of the character for you to be able to answer on question 3.  This chart will be displayed in English during the test as well as a point form list of the possible questions to ask to show variety in your French.

Mon anniversaire est le 20 octobre.
Ton anniversaire est en quel mois?
     C'est en octobre
We then did some practice on age, hair and eye colour again.  Students chose three of the people on text page 141.  They had to write how they are related, their age, and the colour of hair and eyes they have. (of course these people look nothing like any of us, just use your imagination.)
Sample (picture B)
related:  C'est mon père.
age: Il a 41 ans.

Thursday Jan 10

French 10

In class we worked with cards on reflexive verbs, practicing meanings by putting the cards in order.  Today we used the cards with the words, not the pictures to do this activity.  We then played go fish with the pictures and words using the passé composé.
We transitioned to commands in the tu, nous and vous forms using these notes:

We then did the text work with commands on page 159 we did #6 and then #7 on the following.
Homework is to do the following G and V activities.

French 12

We worked further on research and asking words and structures for our final presentation.

We practiced more with his/her.  We then took notes on how to ask and tell age.   Finally we wrote down the months of the year.  Homework is to practice speaking the hair, eye and age questions over and over with different answers each time.


We revisited ACABAR de and did activity 10 on page 184 aloud.  We then looked at the verb venir on page 185 noting that it will not be added to the verb chart but will be used in the last activity for marks before the final exam.    If you were away I will explain this one to you as it is a bit different from what we normally do.  Just come see me.  If you didn't finish it in class, it is due tomorrow.
