Core French: J’imagine Mon École Idéale

Cette semaine, les élèves de Core French ont commencé à travailler sur leurs projets finale de notre unité! Pour le projet, les élèves doivent imaginer l’école de leurs rêves. Est-ce que la salle de Français est dans un cinéma? Est-ce que la salle de mathématiques est dans un restaurant? Les étudiants doivent apporter leurs projets à l’école pour mercredi, le 7 mai. 

Les élèves ont le choix entre 3 différents options

1. Minecraft

En utilisant Minecraft, crée un monde qui montre l’école. À l’aide d’un screen recorder,  filme-toi en faisant un tour de l’école en français.

2. Un dessin

En utilisant du papier de grille, crée une vue aérienne de l’école. Sur un deuxième morceau de papier, prépare 3 différentes directions pour suivre.

3. Un diorama

Crée un diorama de l’école. Sur un deuxième morceau de papier, prépare 3 différentes directions pour suivre.

Si tu choisis l’option #2 ou l’option #3, tu dois avoir 3 “trésors” cachés dans ton école. Tes “trésors” doivent être “cachés” en utilisant l’une des prépositions: sur, sous, dans, devant, derrière, à côté de, entre.

Blogger of the week – Joey!

The week started off very excitingly! We had Mrs.Cleveland and we worked on how to problem solve by using an organized list.

One time every week Mrs.Cleveland comes to our class and we learn one different way to problem solve every time. Guess what? OJCS is now the only school that is teaching their students how to problem solve. I think that is SUPER cool! When Mrs.Cleveland started doing this she only did it with the older grades but now she’s doing it with us. Then we had an indoor recess and we had lots of fun in the gym!

 

Après la récréation nous avons la classe de français et nous travaillons dans nos livres de Bienvenue Chez Nous. En Premier nous lisons sur “speakers corner”. La question c’est “est-ce que tu préfères les grandes villes ou les petites villes? Pourquoi?” Et après des personnes ont présenté leurs posters sur une camp ou une activité pour apres l’ecole. C’était super! J’ai beaucoup aimé la présentation de Shylee et Audrey sur “le camp d’art” 

Then we played a very fun game of Mario cart in gym class.

On Tuesday, we first had Hebrew class and we played a fun Pesach kahoot that I made on the weekend.

During recess Audrey, Mara, and I helped Morah Ada set up for the Grade 1 Seder.  In Art class and we got our art portfolio with all the masterpieces that we made in the year.

 We had such an awesome Seder at Hillel Lodge, the residents loved it. Here is a little iMovie of what happened.

 

ביום שלישי היה לנו עברית ושיחקנו קהוּת שהכנתי בסוף שבוע

At the end of the day we learned fractions for the first time and once we all understood it we played a fraction matching game.

 

The next day we started off very calmly. We had some silent reading time and we worked on public speaking. After that it was not very calm because we had gym class and we had carte blanche (which is open gym.) People played hockey, soccer, badminton, skip rope, and hula hoop. In Hebrew class we had a substitute teacher named Moreh Gonen. He is very funny and fun! We got to make a cover to a song and make the lyrics about Pesach. My group was Noa, Shylee, and I. Our song was 7 rings.

 

The next day we cleaned out our lockers and desks, worked on our dialogues in French, and everyone was very excited because it was soon Pesach break!!!!!! Being the blogger looked so easy when other people did it but trust me, it’s not! It was very very fun, though it was very very hard. I hope all of you have an awesome break and have fun at your Seders with your family and friends!

The shinshinim came in and did an afikomen scavenger hunt.

On Wednesday we had Spartacat (the Senators’ mascot) come to our class because Mrs. Bennett signed us up for a class reading challenge, we read 61 books in March, meeting our monthly goal. Spartacat came to our class for a pizza party. When Spartacat came he brought us pizza, hats and signed Spartacat posters. We had so much fun laughing with Spartacat. We played a fill in the blank game that had Spartacat declare – No homework for Sens fans!

In the afternoon we went to Hillel Lodge to make matzah with Rabi Bloom.

On Thursday we had Music and we did some rhythms and we got to use the drums. For Social Studies we went into 2 different classes, one with Mrs. Bennett, and the extended French class has Social Studies with Mr. Polowin in French.

On Friday we had social studies again and we read a story about blanche neige Translation Snow White.

I want to thank Noa for helping me translate the Hebrew.

Shalom kitah Dalet,

I hope you all took advantage of the beautiful “Aviv” day we had yesterday and spent time outdoors :).

I am writing to remind you to please practice your parts for tomorrow  – read with a loud, clear, slow voice and don’t forget to make eye contact once in a while.

It will be a good idea to listen to the songs again, and sing along…  Continue reading

Core French: C’est une course!

Cette semaine, les élèves continuent de développer leurs compétences. Ils se sont guidés autour d’un jeu de société à la recherche d’une destination mystérieuse.

Ensuite, les élèves ont écouté une conversation audio entre deux amis, au sujet de leur école idéale. Est-ce que tu imagines la classe de français dans un café? Ou dans un cinéma? Est-ce que tu imagines la classe d’éducation physique dans une piscine? Ou à une station de ski? Les élèves ont utilisé leur imagination pour proposer d’autres idées aussi! Cela sera important la semaine prochaine, alors que les élèves commenceront leur dernier projet pour cette unité!

Song for the 10 Plagues and what to bring for the Model Seder

Hi everyone,

Grade 1 enjoyed so much learning the motions for Kadesh Urchatz, a few of them asked if they can teach the motions for the 10 plagues. Of course I said yes, and asked if they want to come teach the Grdae 4s. They proudly said yes and on Friday came to teach Kitah Dalet the motions. Reciprocation is so wonderful… 🙂

#We Learn Better Together 

#Ruach 

…and here is a video of them demonstrating it so we can all practice it at home.

Enjoy.

P.S. Homework this week is to practice your parts and the songs for the Model Seder at Hillel Lodge
