The French Program 
Bonjour! My name is Madame Panetta. I am pleased to be your child’s French teacher this year. The French program is made up of two areas of study: Language Arts and Social Studies.
The Language Arts Program consists of a variety of thematically based units. These units will develop your child's vocabulary through activities such as reading, writing, singing, games and role playing. We will focus on oral and  , written communication as well as on reading comprehension.
The Social Studies Program consists of two strands which will be taught using the Ontario Curriculum. 1. Heritage and Citizenship: Students are introduced to topics that will help them develop an understanding of connections between the past and the present. 2. Canada and World Connections: This strand focuses on Canada and its relationships with the rest of the world.
