A second week at school has begun!
This week at school, we are learning about the sound "a". The story about the sound is that a little girl has a toothache and complains about it, "ahhh!" she says until the dentist fixes it. Her sigh of relief is "ahhhh", also! We put our hand on the cheek to make the "a" sound.
Each Friday, we will be having a spelling quiz, called a "dictée". We will start with 6 words that the students should be able to spell by hearing the sounds of letters in words. Some at-home practice will help, also. Try to write the words out together at home throughout the week...spell them in magnetic letters, on dry erase boards, or make up flashcards! If you should need help with the French pronunciation, check out the "French pronunciation" on the right-hand side of this blog. Once at the site, change the language to French, type in the word and hear the French-speaker say the word aloud.
This week's words are:
1. ma - my (feminine)
2. ta - your (feminine)
3. sa - his (f)
4. la - the (f)
5. un - a (masculine)
6. une - a (feminine)
This Thursday is a "Meet the teacher" night. Please come to the classroom at 6:30 for a visit. Afterwards, enjoy some popcorn by the playground (hopefully if won't be snowing!).
Book orders are due this Friday.
Have a great week!
