On February 2, we celebrated La Chandeleur in class, which is a French holiday similar to Groundhog Day. We enjoyed crêpes, a common treat on this day. Thank you to the Maple Avenue Parent Network for funding this event!
Last week at French Club we had a tasting of several different types of French cheeses. Cheeses sampled included Brie, Camembert, Comté, Port Salut, and Roquefort. There was also a delicious baked brie dish!
Here's what we've been up to lately in French Class:
Students received their pen pal letters from France and have written responses. They are writing in both French and English so both sets of pen pals get practice reading and writing in their second language.
In December, students made cards in French for teachers, friends, and family members.
Earlier in January, we celebrated la Fête des Rois and crowned kings and queens in each class!
We recently had our belated holiday celebration, since we had a snow day on the original day. Among the dishes brought in were Hutzel Wecken, Gâteau de Hanouka, belgi galettes, and Bûche de Noël.
