French 1: Tuesday March 5 2013 Lesson Plan

DUE: Les Devoirs: Write ten original sentences using the partitive and terms from Vocab 6.1.
  1. Each sentence should have a different subject (i.e., a different person eating or having or wanting something) and a different direct object (a different food being eaten or had or wanted).
  2. Pay attention to whether you need dude la, or des.
  3. Write two sentences in the negative, saying the subject doesn't want any of whatever you're talking about.
[10 minutes] Oral Warm-up! Students swap homework papers, read and translate each other's sentences. CAH checks homework during this time.
[20 minutes] Large group oral practice! CAH goes around twice. Each student reads a sentence from homework, and we check for proper use and understanding of the partitive.
  • In simplest terms, the partitive means some. In the negative, it means none or not any.
[35 minutes] New Grammar: -ir verb conjugation! p. 190!

je finisnous finissons
tu finisvous finissez
il/elle finitils/elles finissent

  • The plural forms (the 4, 5, and 6) take an extra -iss before the normal ending (think: "I'll get ISS if I don't add that ending!")
  • The -ent in the ils/elles form is still silent!
  • Practice the -ir verbs listed on p. 190: choisir, grossir, maigrir, grandir, réussir à.
  • Practice with these fun and exciting verbs taken from the amazing Dictionnaire Inverse: rougir, démolir, obéir, brandir, blondir, subir, vrombir, vomir!
  • Practice with pp. 190–191 Exs. 13 and 15
Les Devoirs: Write out p. 191, Exs. 16 and 17.
  • In Ex. 17, write the question, then the answer in a complete sentence.
  • And keep that 6.1 Vocab fresh for a quiz next week Monday, March 11!
