Level 4

OLD HOMEWORK: Complete everything up to and including p. 121. We talked about birthdays. The kids must know the months and should practice reading aloud Unit 17, up to and including pg. 122. Also, We practiced talking about how old we are and will be. WRITING HOMEWORK: Write the ages of family members and how old they will be. For example:

Ὁ πατέρας μου εἶναι 40/σαράντα χρονών.
Ἡ μητέρα μου εἶναι...
Ὁ ἀδελφός μου εἶναι...
Ἡ ἀδελφή μου εἶναι...
(Ἐγώ) εἶμαι...
---
Ὁ πατέρας μου θα εἶναι῎...

If kids can take a guess on how to write the numbers, they should try it. If anyone has trouble reading it, then please read it to/with them, which they look at the words.

Also, this is old, but I am leaving it here:

It is important to remind the kids that there is a difference, even in English, between the future progressive tense (I will be + /ing/ = /θα/ + present tense form). This is critical because we will soon be doing the simple future tense. Here is an example:

παίζω = I am playing / I play

θα παίζω = I will be playing (We are doing this now)

θα παίξω = I will play. (This is coming up, but must not be confused with the above!)

Also, be sure to re-watch the Time and Directions videos!

NEW HOMEWORK: Complete up to and including p. 127. ***ALSO*** On a separate sheet, students must write a sentence saying in what month each family member's birthday is. There is an example on page 126 and more below:

Τα γενέθλιά μου είναι τον ________________
Τα γενέθλια της μητέρας μου είναι τον______
Τα γενέθλια του πατέρα μου είναι τον  ______
Τα γενέθλια του αδελφού μου είναι τον______
Τα γενέθλια της αδελφής μου είναι τον______

The kids should know that the /ς/ of the month is dropped when used in the sentences above.
Ensure accent marks are used and writing is done on paper, not on the margins in the textbook.

NEWER HOMEWORK: There was a bit of incomplete homework, so please get caught up. Also, please be sure kids are reading and reviewing. Today, we reviewed weather and added a new song about our favorite seasons. Students should now be able to count to 100. We learned the seasons. Students should become comfortable with this model:

Μου αρέσει ___(season)___ επειδή ____________

    e.g., Μου αρέσει ο χειμώνας επειδή μου αρέσει το χιόνι.

NEWEST HOMEWORK:

We worked on dates and months in the posessive form, e.g. Μάρτιος ---> Μαρτίου. Students should write the birthdays of all family members like this:

Τα γενεθλιά μου εἶναι στις 15 Δεκεμβρίου.Τα γενέθλια της μητέρας μου εῑναι στις 18 Σεπτεμβρίου... and so on.

In the book, do p. 133 only. Please do not forget the accent marks!
