Assalamu-Alaykum,

We will be preparing a French project.  We will start it on Monday, Dec19, 2016, Insha’Allah. Your child will write three paragraphs using his/her own words. Since we studied a lot of things about characters and events, they will find useful resources in many activities we did in class, such as (questions totals, questions partial etc…). Your child should write a story extension by using creative and imaginative ideas as they wish. Let's begin with the following example as the student's choice as the alternative story continuation.
( Aicha va à l'entraînement de basket-ball après l'école et elle joue tellement bien , ses amis sont là aussi et ils sont très fiers d'elle….. )
  I will require your full support, in order for this project to be a successful one.
I would ask you to help your child understand the criteria in the rubric for reading / writing.  For those who might find the project challenging, I need your help in encouraging them to constantly seek my assistance. I will give them more help if required.
        Please feel free to contact me by email or directly if you have any questions or concerns. sfqih@abraarschool.com

You find below the rubric (reading and writing) and the summary of the story


Un frère pénible.
The story is about a family that lives in downtown Montreal. There is an older sister and younger brother in the family who argue all the time. The sister, Aïsha, complains that her brother, Raoul, teases her all the time. The brother claims that he picks on her because she
is their mother’s favourite and she can do no wrong. They try out for the same basketball team and Raoul makes the team but Aïsha doesn’t. This causes Aïsha a lot of grief because she practised basketball all summer long, but Raoul didn’t. Aïsha spends some time complaining with her friends about annoying siblings and they all agree that siblings can be annoying. At the end of the story, Raoul becomes injured and he gives up his spot on the
team to Aïsha. Aïsha concludes that she has the best brother in the world.
