The Scope of Words

  • Grade 3
  • French
  • Reading


In this mission, students study keywords and figurative expressions used by French songwriters and share their understanding of the topic with their peers. Students learn about using graphophonics, semantics, and syntactic cues to understand the meaning of a text. Finally, students give their appreciation of a song of their choosing, describing it with precise words.
