What We've Been Up To

Here are some of the latest goings on in French class:



Students made family projects describing their real family or an imaginary one.  On the day they were due, they presented them in small groups.












To practice colors, students made drawings writing the colors in French over and over again.









Just before Thanksgiving, students wrote what they were thankful for on a hand-shaped cutout and we made a bulletin board out of it.  Some of the things students wrote were "ma famille (my family), "mes amis" (my friends), "mon chat/chien" (my cat/dog) "mes parents" (my parents) and "mon école" (my school).
