Salut! The answer to my last blog challenge question is... the Mona Lisa. The Mona Lisa was actually stolen from the Louvre by an Italian museum worker, and it was missing for about two years!
This week, we have an Early Release Day on Wednesday, August 30, 2017. Also, we have PTSA Open House on Thursday evening, August 31, 2017 (jeudi le 31 août) at 6:00 p.m. starting in the theater for a brief meeting. You will then go to homeroom and follow your schedule reporting to each class to chat with teachers.
French Club will meet on jeudi le 7 septembre (Thursday, September 7, 2017). This will be the annual <<Chocolat>> meeting. We hope that you can make it! The meeting will take place in room #422. Please feel free to bring your favorite chocolate treat to share with the group.
Français 2 - You will be having an exam over all review material on mardi le 29 août (Tuesday, August 29th). All students received a Study Guide last week. Also, you have a Verb Guide 2000 and tons of handouts and review materials. Also, take a second look at the texts on Marc and Julie. You will have a similar reading and a set of reading comprehension questions to answer. On Wednesday, we will begin brand new material with Unité 6 vocabulary. We will be signing up for the online textbook at www.vhlcentral.com.
Please bring back the rouge (red) page from the syllabus. If you need another copy, you can download it on the opening page of this blog underneath the image of la tour Eiffel.
Don't forget that there are loads of great sites out there to assist you with your review -- especially some of those grammar topics that drive everyone wild. One of my favorite sites is Tex's French Grammar at the University of Texas. It is a really cool site with some great characters and practice opportunities. You can access the site by clicking here -- www.laits.utexas.edu/tex/.
Tex's French Grammar is going to be the subject of this week's challenge question. Tex is the main character on the site. He is an armadillo (un tatou). What is the name of Tex's girlfriend? Of course, this will earn you cinq (5) tickets towards the Friday drawing. Bonne chance! Ciao!
