Voici ma famille !

Our classroom is flowing with lots of families, real and imaginary!  Students were very creative in their projects where they described the members of their family .  Students shared them in class this week.

La semaine du français

(Above:  "The world speaks French"  - written on the school's front walk way)

Over the past week, we have been celebrating National French week in class and during French Club.

Some students chose to make posters explaining why they are learning French.  A judge chose one of the posters to be the winner (see below).

Students brought in dishes from all over the francophone world to enjoy.  Above:  Tarte Tatin; below:  profiteroles (cream puffs)
