French at home!

What a fun, creative, energetic group we have in first level French this year!

They have been busy doing activities to build on French learned last year. Some favorite activities are singing songs, passing the ball and counting, learning the calendar, and “projects.” They love making things, learning, being friends, and also being leaders. They all picked cool French names to use in class! Luna, Elsa, Emma, Marc, Yanis, Nina, Anaëlle, Claire, Raquelle, et Élisabeth. 

Over break, remember there are lots of fun computer activities you can do using French! Sample some of the online activities at French at Home.

Levels 1-8 French are enjoying crêpes this week or next. In case you are not familiar, crêpes are paper-thin French pancakes. You put on a smidge of your favorite topping — juste un peu, s’il te plaît! —  fold, and eat!

Topping and eating crêpes is not only an unforgettable cultural experience, it helps students engage in practical life skills, such as:

  • learning to turn the whipped cream can completely upside-down before discharging
  • pouring only a tiny amount of chocolate sauce (a serious challenge)
  • writing French words in chocolate
  • making smiley faces with strawberries and bananas
  • not dropping chocolate sauce on the new carpet
  • asking for seconds…and thirds en français
  • washing hands and face!

Bon appétit!

Margaret

4th Level French has been re-creating the famous Caves of Lascaux, France. Their work includes research, artistry, measuring, planning, and working together on teams, just like the artists, scientists and researchers who created Lascaux 2.

Merci to Art teacher Deb Simoff for working with the students on parietal art (cave paintings) history and techniques last month!

Fourth level French students can’t wait to present their fascinating cultural investigation to parents and students in January!

eiffel tower music notes

Today, a student left French class saying, “I can’t get that song out of my head!

I’ve always found that music and rhythm are vital to learning a new language — and make learning so enjoyable, too.

Please enjoy this article discussing research on how music and learning new languages are linked!

Merci!
