Hi guys,

 

today we finished correcting your tests thanks to the comic strip. Here is what we said about the characters' feelings and how to express them in a dialogue:

 

"to be written by Anaïs"

 

HW: don't forget to review all the year's lessons to be able to take your oral exam this Wednesday or Friday. I also encourage you to make lexical sheets about dialogue and moods (positive and negative attitudes) if you want to make progress in the future.

Hey,

 

today we worked on the correction of your test from last time (about the Wembly kidnapping).

 

I hoped you liked it despite your really poor results and that you will have understood the story better.

 

HW: for next time, you need to finish your methodology worksheet, associate one expression to one event from your comic strip, and add the possible dialogue in the balloons. I'll be giving you your binders back with your last grade.

Don't forget that you will need to review a whole year's worth of class for your final oral tests on Wednesday (morning and afternoon) and Friday.

today was the last written exam of the year. I hope that you will have made good detectives and good "word detective"...

 

We'll be correcting this test next week, on Wednesday (no classes for you on Monday).

 

HW:

- Mettre à jour vos classeurs et vos fiches (lexicales, méthodologiques, phonétiques, ...)

- Faire une fiche lexicale réorganisée à partir de la fiche distribuée aujourd'hui.

- Remplir le sondage en ligne (rubrique Students' Corner) si ce n'est pas encore fait.

- Venir avec le sourire =)

http://somenovelideas.typepad.com/.a/6a0120a5f26692970b012875e8f439970c-800wiHey guys,

 

today we did lots of things:

 

- First, we corrected the exercise from your methodology worksheet and we reviewed the techniques to understand words in an unknown document.

Here is the correction:

 

"to be written by Anaïs"

 

- Then, we reviewed how to pronunce /ed/ endings correctly:

 

Here is the rule with some examples: 

 

"to be written by Anaïs"

 

- Finally, we ended the class with a correction for your reports. You can download a copy of the correction here:

1--104-.png

 

At the end of the class, you had to read the report and highlight all the vocabulary words that you will add to the vocabulary part in your binders.

 

HW: finish reading the report if you haven't and complete your vocabulary list, get ready for the test (don't forget about how to make hypotheses in the past and in the present and review all your lessons and vocabulary) + don't forget to update your binders (grammar file, vocabulary file, ...) since I will collect them next week, on Wednesday.

Hey,

 

today we first corrected the timeline of events that happened before and after the governor's death that could explain the situation and that could give us some clues to identify the culprit.

Here is what we wrote:

 

"to be written by Anaïs"

 

Then we continued the lesson with a sketch of the crime scene where you had to draw and identify what elements were really mentionned in the story and what elements were superfluous.

Here is the list of elements that we are sure of:

 

"to be written by Anaïs"

 

Here is the picture of the crime scene as you drew it (how artistic it is, isn't it...?)

 

(yet to up uploaded)

 

HW: for next time, prepare your revisions and update your binders. You will take a final test on Friday May 27th.

Files: Your timeline is partly corrected here (+ in blue -> the places, in flashy green -> the alibis)

Hey,

 

today we first made a quick recap of the situtation in the text and we continued with analysing everyone's testimony in which we identified clues pointing at the fact that they might have killed the governor.

Here is what we said:

 

"to be written by Anaïs"

 

With group 2, we began correcting the time line of events. Here is the beginning:

 

"to be written by Anaïs"

 

HW: prepare your police report to accuse a suspect with facts, evidence, and assumptions.

Complete exercise #4 from your methodology worksheet.

Files:

Donwload a copy of the Vocabulary Files for your report:

http://topnews.net.nz/images/crime-scene.pngHey,


today you first had to try and find some important information about the 2nd and 3rd part of the text. You had to identify who the suspects of Liddy Hamilton were, where they were, their possible motives and alibis and their connection to the victim. Here is what we said about them:

 

"to be written by Anaïs"

 

HW: you need to try and confirm some information about the suspects (what they were doing during while the crime was being committed, and what their reasons to kill Robert could be = make assumptions!). You also need to finish completing the worksheet I gave you about the timeline of events and the crime scene.

Hey,

 

today we first corrected the methodology exercises that we had begun last time and that you had to finish.

Here is the correction:

 

"to be written by Anaïs"

 

Then we continued with the study of our new text, entitled: "The Dead Governor" by Stan Smith.

Here is what we said about the characters:

 

 

HW: for next time, you need to learn your lesson, read the text completely and answer the typical WH- Questions for each part according to your group. Get ready to report about what you understand!

Part 2 (from line 36 to 56) -> Group 1

Part 3 (from line 57 to line 84) -> Group 2

Files:

- Download a copy of the text here.

 - Download a copy of your detective notebook to help you organise your notes here.

 

"to be written by Anaïs"

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_Ks5H1xLATzs/TKGKDAlxxMI/AAAAAAAAAEo/JFIFJyP4EmA/s1600/confused.jpgHey people,

 

today you first took a vocabulary test and then we corrected parts of your Rosa Parks test from last week. We focused our attention on how to conjugate verbs in the preterit (positive and negative sentences).

 

Then we went over the document with the woman in the staircase and we made assumptions about what weapon she had in her hands. Here is what we said:

 

"to be written by Anaïs"

 

Then we continued the class with trying to identify the important elements in a text written in a completely foreign language to you. And you understood that it was not that difficult to get important information.

Here is what we said about the text (answers to the multiple choice questions):

 

 

"to be written by Anaïs"


HW: you need to complete exercises #2 and #3.

Files: download a copy of the methodology worksheet here.

Hey,

 

today we first warmed up with what you did during the week end. Some of you as usual behaved like vampires... sleeping all week end long while other went to the cinema or watched movies on TV.

 

As for the class, we continued making hypotheses about the motives for why the woman killed her husband. Here is what we said:

 

"to be written by Anaïs"

 

Then we continued with explaining the grammar rule and the differences between the 4 modal auxiliaries. Here it reads:

 

"to be written by Anaïs"

 

Finally, we made assumption about what the woman was holding in her right hand. Here is what we said:

 

"to be written by Anaïs"

 

Here is the rule about assumptions in the present:

 

"to be written by Anaïs"

 

HW: for next time, get ready for a vocabulary test.
