Welcome to another year at QM! I’m Madame Noble, and I will be teaching Core French to students in Grade 5-8.
In all classes, 10 minutes or so each day of reviewing vocabulary at home is very helpful. Let your kids teach you what they’re learning!
Grade 5 :We did some Thanksgiving (Action de Grâce) vocabulary – they should have brought a sheet home with some foods that you might have on your table this weekend. Lots of new vocabulary coming next week – please ask them to show you what they`re learning.
Grade 5/6: This class also did some Thanksgiving vocab, and has a food sheet to share as well. We’ll jump into more new vocab next week, as well as working on our phone numbers in French.
Grade 6: The new opening rap is getting really fluid – great job! We`ll do a Thanksgiving food activity on Tuesday to remember what we ate, and start into some new vocabulary.
Grade 6/7: We’ve started our self-assessment wheels, and have also started our Pinterest boards to talk about interests with others. Students will have to present their boards, and answer classmates’ questions about them.
Grade 7/8 and 8: These groups are also creating Pinterest boards to explain their interests and pastimes. They also completed a survey to tell me what topics they’d like to learn about this year in French.

Band news: There will be band practice on Wednesday morning this week. Several students have signed out instruments and music – those MUST be in the building for band practice. Long and McQuade have opened a shop in town (in the Bud’s Music location) – should mean cleaning kits and reeds available for your kids, at a reasonable price!

Website: This was a very interesting piece. If you have a gamer at your house, you might find that this isn’t new information for you. Minecraft and reading
Books: I actually thought there was a fair amount to dive into here. Some of the non-fiction looks particularly interesting. Hope some of you can use some of these suggestions with your own book clubs. book club choices
Music: This one appeared Friday afternoon in my Twitter feed. I admit being fond of the original, and this is amazing! stay with me
