French 10 (Mme. Henneveld)

French 10 Course Overview2016-17 spring Francais 10 eNotes for Students and Parents Mme Henneveld lhenneveld@stjohnbrebeuf.ca   le 2 juin Wow.  The semester is coming to a close and in French 10 there are several important dates coming up.   Students are working hard to complete play presentations, and at the same time are completing activities.   Many students need to be working at home on this.   There will be a final test on our play next Friday, June 9, and the best way to study for this is to complete the activities. As well, we have been learning the past tense.  Students have a test on DR MRS VANDERTRAMP this Tuesday, June 6. This coming week we will put together a review package for the final exams.   The week of June 12 we will be having our oral exam, so students are reviewing their list of 'questions orales'.   As well that week we will have our listening exam.   There is not much studying happening for that.  During exam week, students will write the final exam and do some reflection on the semester using the contents of their portfolios. Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns. Merci! Madame Henneveld le 24 mai Bonjour!   Students this week are finishing up their endings to the play (Un Garcon Populaire) with their groups.   Videotaping of the presentation of the play will happen next week.   Lines are being learned and activities are being worked on.  As well, we are practicing 'questions orales', reviewing vocabulary and learning more about the past tense. Have a great week! Madame Henneveld le 15 mai Bonjour.   This week in French 10 we have a vocab test on Wednesday, May 17, on liste B.   We are working hard on learning our lines for the play and this week will work as groups on writing an ending for the play that will be acted out with the play. As well this week, we continue to learn the past tense, with a focus on the verb 'Etre'.  And we are practicing our 'questions orales'. Have a great week!

Our list of 'questions orales' is complete, so we are now practicing oral conversations regularly.  As well, there is an oral conversational component based on the play.   Students may take their folders home to practice this. Have a great May week! madame henneveld   le 13 avril Bonjour!  In French 10 this week, we have enjoyed a few group presentations of the play (on video) and will see the rest next week.  Meanwhile, we are completing activities and working on the final project of the play which is a choice from a variety of ways to creatively retell the story of 'Qui Arrive Ce Soir?'.  The final test has already been written, and all students did well.  We look forward to starting our new play next week! I wish everyone a blessed and meaningful Easter.

This week, in French 10, we are reviewing and slowly waking up the French vocabulary that lies dormant in our brains.  We are looking at how a dictionary works, and we will start looking at our new play (Qui Arrive Ce Soir?) before the end of the week.  As well, we are establishing some routine part of our class, such as 'questions orales' and journal writing.   For more about our program and curriculum, see the overview and notes attached above. Merci, and have a great week! Madame Henneveld
