Livret sur l'imparfait de l'indicatif

(0)
This booklet is the second booklet of my conjugation series. It builds upon my Livret sur le Présent de l’indicatif. In this booklet, students will find simplified explanations of when we use the imparfait and how to figure out the imparfait of verbs. The booklet starts out with the basics of être and avoir and proceeds to the regular verbs in -er, their small variations, 2nd group verbs in -ir, irregular -ir verbs and the rest of the 3rd group of verbs. After each exercice section, there is a quiz. I do not always give the quiz as an actual “quiz” but I use it as a self-evaluation tool for the students. In the back, there is also an answer key to the exercises.

L'action de grâce à travers le monde/ Thanksgiving around the world

(0)
This resource is geared towards junior students in the French Immersion program. In this resource, I have discussed harvest festivals in general, I have alluded to link some aspects of this to Canadian symbols, human interactions in the world, parliament, and immigration. I have also sought out to show that there are more similarities than differences in these celebrations and among humanity as a whole. This booklet discusses Thanksgiving in Canada, the Harvest Festival in Britain, the Yur’ya feast that is celebrated in a small area of southern Belarus, Chuseok in Korea, and Vaisakhi among the Sikh community. Each text comes with some comprehension questions. I have added a reflection and a drama extension at the end. In my classroom, I normally read the text on Thanksgiving in Canada as a whole class, then I assign students in groups and they work on the rest of the texts along with the comprehension questions in groups. The reflection is normally done independently and then the extension can be used as a quick drama mark for the progress report.

Since I don’t believe in doing things simply because they are fun, I really wanted to link this booklet specifically to the Social Studies curriculum. In this booklet I have incorporated links to Ancient Civilizations, Medieval Times, Government, Immigration, Communities in Canada, Legends, Commerce, Human Rights issues at the international level, and cultural awareness. I have also incorporated technology in one of the text’s comprehension questions. When using this booklet with my class, I also do vocabulary studies and I normally do Halloween at about the time when I do synonyms in French.

This package is a perfect introduction for junior and intermediate immersion students (grades 5 to 8) to classical literature, more specifically the short story genre.

Arts Visuels Français Immersion: Pop Art (Junior/Intermédiaire)
IanievacorinaIanievacorina

Arts Visuels Français Immersion: Pop Art (Junior/Intermédiaire)

(0)
Fun and accessible Art project for ALL learners! Tried and tested in my junior Immersion classes. -NO PREP!- Perfect for distance and face-to-face learning. This Pop Art project was very popular and successful with my immersion kids. Best thing: it was accessible to all students in the sense that nobody needed to be enrolled in after-school art lessons or have any particular type of artistic talent to succeed. Pop Art is an art movement that originated in the UK and became quite popular in the US because it challenged traditional norms of fine art. This very definition of Pop Art was very pleasing to students who tend to have high levels of anxiety when approaching art or who tend to put themselves down as being “non artistic” or “uncreative”. Pop Art gave these students a gateway into making the production of art very accessible and into redefining their vision of art. In this package you will find: An introduction about Pop Art A quote by Pop artist Andy Warhol that students can comment on. An opportunity to analyze a work by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Japanese artist Takashi Murakami. Students have the opportunity to search up and analyze a Pop Art work of their choice. There is a table with questions to guide student art analysis. Some reflection questions before students get started on creating their own Pop Art masterpiece + guidelines for their own Pop Art masterpiece. An evaluation rubric. If your students have enjoyed this product, please click the star to follow my store and leave me a comment to let me know how this project worked out in your classroom.

Projet d'arts visuels: Le Griffonnage (Doodling); Junior/Intermédiaire

(0)
Fun and accessible Art project for ALL learners! Tried and tested in my junior Immersion classes. -NO PREP!- Perfect for distance and face-to-face learning. Do you have a doodler in your class who would benefit from some recognition of their often under appreciated talent? If so, this is THE ultimate project for them. This Doodling project was very popular and successful with my immersion kids. Best thing: it was accessible to all students in the sense that nobody needed to be enrolled in after-school art lessons or have any particular type of artistic talent to succeed. Doodling is an actual form of art. In fact there are many doodle artists around the world. According to researchers, doodling helps to alleviate stress, increase concentration and memory. It also helps students visualize ideas and live in the moment. Many famous people have been notorious “doodlers”. This fun project is going to hopefully be as much of a hit with your class as it was with my class. Many of my art anxious students became a lot less anxious and more open to art by the time we finished this project and had our in-class Doodle art exhibition. In this package you will find: An introduction about Doodling An opportunity to analyze a work by doodle artists (2 known doodlers, 1 anonymous doodler). Students have the opportunity to search up and analyze a doodle artwork of their choice. There is a table with questions to guide student art analysis. Some reflection questions before students get started on creating their own Doodle art masterpiece + guidelines for their own Doodle art masterpiece. (I do mention to students that although doodling is often unplanned art, this project is an evaluated one, therefore some planning without infringing on creativity is needed for this project). An evaluation rubric. I have only tried this project with my immersion grades 5 and 6 students. If you have a Core class, this project should be able to work- but you may need to explain the French in more detail. If your students have enjoyed this product, please click the star to follow my store and leave me a comment to let me know how this project worked out in your classroom.
