ASA Italian High Intermediate Level

By Valérie Asensio

In the ASA Italian on Monday, children learned new verb tenses such as imperative to express orders or suggestions and future to express desires and ambitions. They learned about the Italian currency, Euro, and practiced how to use it with a role play Italian mercato.

In the cultural section we talked about the most famous Italian monuments and we locate them in the correct Region and/or city on the map. Also, we celebrated the birthday of Michelangelo and talked about his masterpieces of Davide (David) and Il Giudizio Universale (The Last Judgment).

ASA Mathematical Problem Solving

By Valérie Asensio

This week in the Mathematical Problem Solving Activity children learned how to name unknown numbers (also known as “pre-algebra”!).  And they played “four 4s”, in which they tried to make different numbers using exactly four 4s and any mathematical operations.  Here’s a photo of the solutions they found.

ASA elab-LEGO

By Valérie Asensio

En classe d’elab-LEGO, Antoine a construit un chien mécanique.

Il a d’abord construit le corps lors de la première période et il vient juste de terminer la tête. Il a pu l’attacher au reste qui comporte un moteur.

Lorsqu’il démarre ce dernier, la bouche, la queue, les yeux et les pattes s’activent.

C’est super !  Bravo Antoine !
