Madame Caro’s 4eme Week 9

Hello all, this is your last week of Cambridge with me.

Please Turn in Homework: If you have not turned in your assignments you have till this Thursday, May 28th. There are several of you who need to turn in past assignments so I am giving you plenty of time to do so. Once it is the last day, Thursday, May 28th, you will not have a chance to turn in your past assignments. Please do so as this makes up a portion of your grade.

This week’s Homework: This week you will be doing a report on a friend, person, family member of your choice. You will use the skills we have learned this year: how to write a report, how to do an interview, and your skills in English in general. I hope you have fun with this and learn something new about your friend or family member.

REPORT: Your report needs to have an introduction, 3 paragraphs, and a conclusion. INTERVIEW OPTION: You can also choose to do your report in an interview form, or any other creative way. Perhaps a video. For the interview you can ask questions over the phone. The idea is to have fun with this, make it interesting and use all of the skills you have learned.

Paragraph and Interview Ideas:

Tell us about the person you are interviewing … their

Hobbies? Skills? Interests? Their Strengths? Passions? What do they want their career to be? Where do they hope to be in 5 years? Do they prefer the beach or the mountains? Where is their favorite place to go? Do they prefer Winter or Summer? What sports do they play? When did they start playing sports? What is an interesting fact about them? How do you know each other?

Those are just some ideas for you, but you can create your own questions. This will be your last assignment so make it a great one.

I am looking forward to reading these.

Have a good day, cordially,

Madame Caro

Madame Caro’s 4eme Week 6

Hello everyone,

I hope you are doing well and that you are practicing your English. I have received some of your assignments but if you have yet to turn in your work, please do so. For Week 6 we will be working on Descriptive Sentences.

« Photo Descriptions » are the assignment this week.

Example: This is a photo that I took at the beginning of March. The water was crystal blue and the weather was warm. I noticed that everything in the scene were shades of green and the contrast of the blue sky made all of the colors pop. I was excited to be riding my bike around the lake. Looking back on this photo I did not realize this would be my last bike ride before confinement.

Instructions: You will pick a favorite photo that you have taken and describe it. The goal of the assignment is to use detailed vocabulary and descriptive sentences to describe the photo so it feels as if you are right back in that moment.

You can also take a photo of you now, and the theme would be « A Day in the Life » this is a great way to document a moment. Explain how you are? Describe your mood and where you are in the photo. Have fun with this and please write one paragraph using the examples I gave you. Title your photo with something creative. My photo would be: Glimmering Green.

Again, I hope all of you are well and I look forward to seeing your assignments.

Cordially,

Madame Caro

Cambridge 4eme Madame Caro Watch and Character Description

Hello 4eme, I hope you are well. For your next assignment I would like you to watch an episode of your favorite series, a cartoon, or film in English. To do this, watch it with subtitles. This exercise works best if it’s an episode you have already seen. If you can’t watch this in English do not worry, you will then need to write a paragraph telling me about a film or series you watch.

The assignment: write and tell me about your favorite character in what you are watching. What attributes (qualities in personality) do you admire, like, or perhaps dislike? What is the theme of the episode? Is there a problem that the main character needs to solve? Describe the series, the film, or cartoon in English.

Submitting, you will submit this as Week 2 when we return to class. Keep this in your folder, and make sure to title and date it. This assignment counts as your participation. My goal for you is to find the practice in watching a show you enjoy but listening and watching in English.

I hope all of you are well, and I look forward to seeing each of you when we return.
