In French Phase 1 our unit of inquiry is focusing on how accent can impact the communication of messages". As I have referenced in a previous post, I am using the S.O.S pronunciation packet that I bought here. Each activity focuses on a different sound. The sounds that are practised are as follows:
For each sound there is an introduction of vocabulary for the students to prctise out loud, followed by a story that practises that sound. Many of the stories can also be tied in to different topic areas and cultural information. Tomorrow my students will be practising the ER = AY sound with the story about <<Le Carnaval de Québec>>, and so we will start with the class with the visible thinking routine <<I think, I see, I wonder>> based on the video below.
I have been teaching French and Spanish for 13 years. I qualified and started teaching in the UK, and I currently work at Shanghai Community International School, China. I have experience teaching GCSEs and IB DP and MYP. Find out more about me within these blog pages or below at LinkedIn.
