More grammar…

Hello everyone!

I’m continuing on in my quest to finish the necessary grammar points in my grade 9 Immersion class.  To start the class off, my mise en train was a Tic Tac Toe game I made up, not for the forms of the subjonctive, but for its use.  I had the students play the game and they had to decide whether the expression that was given to them by their partner was indicatif or subjonctif.  I had only given them a short list of impersonal expressions that take the subjunctive, but I hadn’t given them a list of non-subjunctive impersonal expressions.  I did that deliberately because I wanted them to think about what I had taught them about why we use the subjunctive mood and see if they could apply it when faced with making the decision.

Tomorrow I only have about 6 of them in the class because of a huge field trip taking place.  Oh well, I guess I’ll be showing a movie!

À demain!
