2nd Grade Monthly Update

2nd grade:                                               MAY UPDATE


In Unit 4, entitled “C’est l’heure du goûter” (It’s snack time), the six students in our Grenadine books are accompanying Monsieur Valette (on bike) to a modern park (le parc de la Villette) in the XIX district of Paris. Since it is 4:00, the kids are very excited that it’s snack time! :)


In this unit, they learned how to discuss what they like and don’t like to eat and drink. Additionally, they learned how to form the partitive, to indicate when they only want “some” of whatever they’re eating or drinking. This is an interesting concept in French, because special attention needs to be paid to both number and gender (“le sexe”;) when forming the partitive. (As you can imagine, this has garnered many laughs...) :wink:


This section had several fun songs (see below) and activities including the one with my own three “cauldrons” (“du” / “de la” / “des”;). In this activity, they were tasked with determining which one to use according to the number and gender of the food and drink. (This would be the day they came home with a lot of bonbons!)  I will send their workbook activities home next week. Here are the words to the songs that accompanied this segment.


♫ ♪ La ronde des repas ♫ ♪

♫ ♪ Tic tac, tic tac, j’ai faim, c’est l’heure du petit déjeuner.

Mmmm… Du lait, de la confiture et du pain beurré!

Tic tac, tic tac, j’ai faim! C’est l’heure du déjeuner.

Mmmm… Des carottes, du riz et du poisson pané!

Tic tac, tic tac, j’ai faim, c’est l’heure de mon goûter.

Mmmm… Des pommes, du jus d’orange et de la crème glacée!

Tic tac, tic tac, j’ai faim, c’est l’heure d’aller dîner.

Mmmm… De la salade, du fromage et de la purée! ♫ ♪

♫ ♪ S’il te plaît… Merci! ♫ ♪

♫ ♪ Grenadine: Passe-moi du chocolat!

Souris: Non, non, Grenadine, il faut être polie, sapristi!

Grenadine: Bon d’accord: s’il te plaît, passe-moi du chocolat!

Souris: C’est bien mieux comme ça. Voilà….

Grenadine: Merci!

Grenadine: Moi, je veux du lait!

Souris: Non, non, Grenadine, il faut être polie, sapristi!

Grenadine: Bon d’accord: s’il te plait je voudrais bien du lait!

Souris: Tu fais des progrès! Voilà….

Grenadine: Merci!

Grenadine: Eh, donne-moi du pain beurré!

Souris: Non, non Grenadine, il faut être polie, sapristi!

Grenadine: Bon d’accord: s’il te plait donne-moi du pain beurré.

Souris: Maintenant c’est parfait! Voilà….

Grenadine: Merci!

Grenadine: Hips!... Oh, j’ai trop mangé! ♫ ♪


Last week, we began Chapter 5, entitled “Le programme de la semaine.” Hold on to your hats!
