Summary of Tasks/Actions:
Bell Ringer (4 minutes): Students discuss with a partner “Qu’est-ce que tu as fait ce week-end et qu’est-ce que tu vas
faire ce soir?” During this period take attendance then circulate around the room asking students what their partner
did over the weekend.

After bellringer ask 3-5 students to share what they or their partner did over the weekend and use this to review the
passé composé and how it is formed. Write the structure on the board, asking students how it is made and why.

Tell students to look at the objective on the board (“I will be able to use the passé composé to describe le 1er janvier
en Haïti.”), then ask what they think this means we are going to talk about today. Use this to lead into “What is
January 1st in most countries? How do people we know celebrate the New Year?”
