Nos livres séléctionnés pour le 3e #FSLGRA en octobre

Image
Nous nous excusons pour le délai. Il nous a pris un peu trop de temps à publier les informations sur ce site à propos de cette troisième édition annuelle de l’initiative #FSLGRA. Les participants déjà inscrits ont été informés par courriel vers la fin du mois de mai. Twitter reste encore une façon importante pour nous de se communiquer, alors j'espère que la plupart des enseignants ont obtenu les informations dont ils avaient besoin dans ces deux façons. Nous, les organisatrices bénévoles, sommes toutes les deux des enseignantes travaillant à temps plein, gérant l’apprentissage en ligne de nos élèves pendant cette pandémie, en plus des nombreux autres rôles que nous jouons. Nous  reconnaissons qu'il faut essayer de conserver toutes les informations pertinentes dans un endroit central et facilement accessible, donc sans plus tarder ...

Voici les trois albums choisis pour les élèves les plus jeunes parmi nos participants.

Selected FSLGRA Books for October 2020

Image
Our apologies for the delay. We're a bit late in getting the most recent information published on our site about this third annual French as a Second Language Global Read Aloud. Registered participants were notified via email back at the end of May and Twitter remains a major method of communication for us, so hopefully most teachers got the information they needed that way. We're both full-time teachers too, managing ongoing education of our students through this pandemic, in addition to the many other roles we play.

We recognize that it's important to try to keep the information all in one place, so without further ado...

Here are the three selected picture books for the youngest set of our participants.
(As always, teachers of any level/grade of French as a second language or additional language may decide to use whichever set of books or either selected novel, as they believe will best suit their students' needs! So middle school and high school teachers are also c…

FSLGRA 2019 and 2020

Thank you to all who participated in this year's FSL Global Read Aloud. We hope that you found it a worthwhile and enjoyable experience for you and your students. We've enjoyed seeing the connections and activities you have shared with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. From scratch coding activities, Mystery hangouts, author questions (Merci Annie Bacon!) to break outs, quizizz and artistic opportunities we loved seeing how you and your students connected to and engaged with this year's French books. We revisited Petite Petra to find verbs, adjectives and nouns. Ss are making strong connections between learning in English and French. We know what an adjective is, so we also know that "les adjectifs" describe or modify a noun ("un nom"). #FRIMM#FSLGRA#FSLGRAmoyen#grade4pic.twitter.com/TCq091QmQk — Krystine Desrosiers (@MmeKrystine) October 17, 2019

Commençons le FSLGRA le 7 octobre

Image
Pour les enseignants et enseignants qui s'intéressent, ce n'est pas trop tard! L'inscription continue encore pendant quelques jours! Notre début officiel est dans une semaine, mais il se peut que quelques classes vont commencer des activités avant de lire cette semaine actuelle. Souvenez-vous que les activités et explorations que vous décidez d'offrir à vos élèves ou étudiants, c'est complètement votre choix. 

Voici l'horaire pour les livres :


Nous avons hâte de voir les images dans les médias sociaux (s'il est permis, bien sûr, dans votre circonstances) et de lire les commentaires sur les tâches que vous feront avec vos "jeunes lecteurs". N'oubliez pas de suivre leurs passions et intérêts! Vous êtes fortement encouragés de partager des ressources par la liste de ressources, qui se développent assez bien, aussi bien que d'utiliser les mots-clics en ligne.

FSLGRA Begins in a Week

Image
Teachers are still invited to sign up for a few more days! Our official start date is one week from today (or tomorow, due to the Thanksgiving holiday in Canada), but some teachers may choose to begin some prereading activities this week, or may have even started already. Remember, the complexity or simplicity of the experience you decide to offer to your students is completely up to you. 

Here is a visual reminder of the reading schedule, for each of the four levels.

We certainly look forward to hearing about where the students' interests and connections lead to! You can either share your resources with others doing the same FSLGRA category as your class using the resource list, or just share using the hashtags on social media of your choice.

What is the FSLGRA? (French as a Second Language Global Read Aloud)

Image
Welcome to the site for the FSL Global Read Aloud!


We started the #FSLGRA project just before the 2018-2019 school year. Inspired by the collaborative nature, the meaningful connections to and within the real world, and the deep learning experience offered by the annual endeavour created, owned and maintained by Pernille Rippin the United States for several years now (the Global Read Aloud aka le GRA), dedicated and risk-taking FSL teachers wanted to offer a similar literary experience for our young language learners. So we apprached Ms Ripp with our idea and were granted permission to try to organise something similar, specifically with second language French audiences in mind. She gave us her blessing (in accordance with certain conditions that we have followed and will continue to respect).

Here's how it happened ... In 2016, I had the pleasure of teaching English Language Arts (what we just call "Language" here in the English language public school boards in Ontario, C…
