French I



Bienvenue à la classe de français I 

MYP Core Subject: Language Acquisition 

I am very excited to begin the school year 2017-18!  Français I is a class for students who have either had an introduction course, or no previous French language experience. This year, we will cover the following units:

1. Le Berger - how fables teach us lessons

2. Paris! We will Read a mini-novel which takes place in Paris 

3. Le Ballon Rouge - We will watch a classic French film, and re-create skits based on it.

4. Nos animaux, Notre famille - We will read a mini-novel about a young boy who wants a dog. Our vocabulary focus: family, house, time

5. Les Biographies - We will read mini biographies about French impressionists and musicians. We will create our own masterpieces and write about them.

In addition, we will learn basic French grammar, including how to conjugate the most common verbs in the present tense. 

To demonstrate that you have read this, please write the name of your favorite ice cream on your student questionnaire "Getting to know you" before turning it in on Friday, September 1.
