The First Week of School

Learning is well underway in room E142!  Students have learned how to greet people, how to share their name or someone else's, what a cognate is, where French is spoken, why French is important, and how to pronounce several sounds!  Here are some photos of what we did:

Asking for and providing names on the first day:



Getting to know our classmates:



Taking a short survey!



Making nametags:













Discovering cognates and learning lots of new words!

March in French Class



We've been learning a lot about how to say what people are doing, so students drew or found a photo and captioned it.






For April Fool's Day, or Poisson d'Avril, students tried the French tradition of sticking a fish on someone's back!

Mardi Gras !

Before break we celebrated Mardi Gras with authentic food, music, and costumes. Here are some photos from the day.


One student brought in gumbo, a Louisianian stew.


The galette des rois is festive in the official Mardi Gras colors!


Mmm, beignets !


A creative mask!

Quels artistes !

Look at some of the artistic things we have been doing in class!

Normally I ask students not to draw on the whiteboards, but for this activity, they drew a picture based on a description in French of the weather.




Students had fun drawing monsters based on my commands in French!


Students made crazy creatures to help them learn the parts of the body!
