French as a Second Language FSL Year Plan



I get a ton of questions about how to organize your year in FSL 5. The truth is that there is no one right or wrong way. However, today I am going to share a year plan with you that I hope will work as a starting point for your year.

2) Common Questions

1) What are the numbers next to the months? 

The numbers next to the months indicate how many school weeks are typically in that month due to holidays. 

2) Why is June only review and catch up?

June is reserved for review and catch up because it is such a crazy month filled with assemblies, field trips and end of the year fun. This makes it super hard to fit in typical FSL lessons. 

3) What do the different colours mean?

Each colour represents a different unit from the Alberta program of studies. 

Note that there is no "introductory unit" in the Alberta program of studies but I add one because I feel as though taking time to get classroom management routines in place and getting to know students as kids helps to create a smooth year of French learning!
