Here is what we are up to at the moment in the Italian classroom.
Preps are currently exploring numbers 1-10 and developing their ability to recognise numbers as Italian words. We are doing this using ‘Il Piccolo Bruco Maisazio’ (The Very Hungry Caterpillar).
Grade 1/2 students are exploring colours, days of their week and their listening comprehension skills using the story ‘Il Lupo Che Voleva Cambiare Colore’ (The Wolf Who Wanted to Change His Colour).
Grade 3/4s have begun learning vocabulary associated with objects found in the classroom and are now learning to conjugate the verb ‘avere’ (to have) in the present tense and using this knowledge to describe objects found in people’s possession within the classroom.
Grade 5/6 students are extending their learning from last term by engaging in a research task based on a famous ‘festa’ of their choice that is celebrated in Italy. They will present these to the class in the coming weeks.
