We have been keeping busy in the Italian classroom.
All grades have been focusing on greetings, getting to know you language and learning how to express how they feel in the Italian language.
The prep students have been learning basic words and gestures to respond to the question ‘Come stai?’ (How are you?). They have also been learning the greeting song ‘Ciao Buongiorno’.
The grade 1/2s are focusing on words for greetings as well as learning new ways to express how they feel. Next week they will begin creating un ‘orologio delle emozioni’ (an emotions wheel).
The grade 3/4 students are focusing on greetings as well as the most appropriate context for using specific greetings. They are also learning how to express how they feel and are creating ’emoji’ posters.
The grade 5/6 students are learning getting to know you language, adjectives to express how they feel and exploring new language using ‘un dizionario’ (a dictionary) to share aspects of their own identity. They are completing a ‘tutto su di me’ writing task (all about me).
