French 2: Tuesday November 20 2012 Lesson Plan

Attention: substitut chez nous!

DUE: Les Devoirs: Écrivez les mots et les expression du Vocab 4.1 quatre fois, incluyant "Exprimons-nous" et "Entre Copains"! There should be at least 49 items written four times on your homework. Allez!

Substitute will check homework for completeness at beginning of class!

[20 minutes] Drill oral quiz questions! 
  1. Maroon 1: Teacher's Assistant Weston leads a round of questions, two per student; then students go face to face.
  2. Maroon 3: Michael, Adrianna, Katelyn, Jordon, Brandee and Megan each lead a group (see columns in chart below). Group leaders ask each person in group three questions; then students ask each other questions in order in group, suggest corrections in word choice, grammar, and pronunciation as necessary.

Again, details on oral quiz:
  • Two meetings from now (Nov. 26), we will do another one-on-one oral interview in the hall.
  • Eight questions total!
  • CAH will ask you five questions about where one can buy certain groceries (Où est-ce qu'on peut acheter...?).
  • To get full credit, you need to respond in a complete sentence saying where one can buy such things (On peut acheter... à ...).
  • You can use le supermarché in no more than one response. The rest of your responses must use terms for specific shops.
  • CAH will ask you two questions about whether you like shopping, who in your family does the shopping, and/or what items you enjoy shopping for.
  • You must then ask CAH one grocery-related question. CAH will respond in second-year French. You will translate his response into English.
[30 minutes] Object Pronoun Placement in Past Tense (p. 122)
  1. We have studied direct object and indirect object pronouns (pp. 46 & 48):
    1. I love you. = Je t'aime.
    2. Do you love me? = Tu m'aimes?
    3. Bob is watching her. = Bob la regarde.
    4. She is reading them (the books). = Elle les lit.
    5. Our parents are giving a car to us. = Nos parents nous donne une voiture.
    6. I'm baking her a cake. = Je lui fais cuire un gâteau.
    7. She is showing him her homework. = Elle lui montre ses devoirs.
    8. We are going to speak to them. = Nous allons leur parler.
  2. The new trick here: using those direct object and indirect object pronouns in the past tense!
  3. Remember, past tense (passé composé) is a compound verb form, with a helping verb (usually avoir conjugated) and a past participle:
    1. I loved = J'ai aimé.
    2. She read = Elle a lu.
    3. We spoke = Nous avons parlé.
  4. Object pronouns go before the helping verb!):
    1. I loved you. = Je t'ai aimée.
    2. Did you love me? = Tu m'as aimé?
    3. Bob watched her. = Bob l'a regardée.
    4. She read them (the books). = Elle les a lus.
    5. Our parents gave a car to us. = Nos parents nous ont donné une voiture.
    6. I baked her a cake. = Je lui ai fait cuire un gâteau.
    7. She showed him her homework. = Elle lui a montré ses devoirs.
    8. We spoke to them. = Nous leur avons parlé.
  5. Notice: when you place a direct object pronoun before a past tense verb, you have to make the participle agree in gender and number with that pronoun!
    1. She loved him. = Elle l'a aimé.
    2. He loved her. = Il l'aimée.
    3. Papa saw them (his sons). = Papa les a vus.
    4. Papa saw them (his daughters). = Papa les a vues.
  6. You don't have to make participles agree with indirect object pronouns:
    1. Mom read a story to him. = Elle lui a lu une histoire.
    2. Mom read a story to her. = Elle lui a lu une histoire.
    3. Mom read a story to them (the boys). = Elle leur a lu une histoire.
    4. Mom read a story to them (the girls). = Elle leur a lu une histoire.
In-Class Assignment: Complete the following tasks and show them to the substitute by the end of class!

A. Translate the following sentences from French to English:
  1. Je lui ai acheté un cadeau.
  2. Je l'ai acheté au centre commercial.
  3. Voilà mes lunettes de protection! Je les ai voulues hier.
  4. J'ai étudié le français. Je l'ai aimé.
  5. Nous n'avons pas le livre. Nous l'avons rendu au CDI.
  6. Jean a passé un examen d'histoire. Il l'a raté.
B. Rewrite the following sentences in French, converting the bold words to indirect object pronouns:
  1. J'ai donné des bonbons au conseiller d'education.
  2. Nous avons donné nos devoirs à Mme Reede.
  3. Vous avez donné les livres à vos amis?
  4. Louis a donné les fleurs aux belles filles.
C. Rewrite the following sentences in French, converting the bold words to direct object pronouns. When necessary (i.e., when the direct object is feminine or plural), remember to change the past participle to agree in gender and number!
  1. Vous avez lu le roman?
  2. Vous avez vu la fille dangereuse?
  3. Vous avez vu les gâteaux énormes?
  4. Vous avez vu les voitures vites?
  5. J'ai mangé le steak.
  6. J'ai mangé la tarte aux pommes.
  7. Les enfants ont mangé les champignons.
  8. Les enfants ont mangé les framboises.
