Mounds View French 1: Thursday, September 18, 2014

DUE: Les Devoirs! Vocab/Gender Practice:
  1. Write each of the nouns on Vocab List 1B (the words your wrote for homework Tuesday, the words on which you will be quizzed Friday: there are 26 nouns) with the correct indefinite article (un or une)
  2. Then write each of those nouns with the correct definite article.
  3. For words like camarade and élève, you may choose whether you want to write the guy or girl versions. But be consistent: if you choose guy, be sure both the indefinite and definite are the guy forms.

[10 minutes] Vocab gender practice!
  • Every student writes one pair (noun with indefinite article, then same noun with definite article) au tableau.
  • CAH checks homework during this time.
  • Écoutez et répétez a few!
[30 minutes] Our first verb: avoir! to have!

avoir = “to have”
I have
nous avons
we have
tu as
you have
vous avez
y’all have
il a
he has
ils ont
they (m) have
elle a
she has
elles ont
they (f) have
  • First, CAH demonstrates: J'ai un livre. J'ai une calculatrice. J'ai des dictionnaires.
  • Then questions: Tu as un livre? Tu as un crayon?
  • Then try introducing il and elle, statements and questions.
  • Then break, show the chart and the meanings.
[14 minutes] Firing Line: Vocab 1B Practice!

Les Devoirs: rien... mais étudiez fort à l’interro de vocabulaire demain! Vendredi!
