Throughout the year at LaSalle II we learned about more than just new French vocabulary or how to conjugate verbs but we also learn about the different cultures in the different countries where French is spoken.
This year our students learned about the different regions of France. Regions in France are like states and each one is different. Students were assigned a different region and they presented it to the class.
With our artist in residency program this year brought different people from around the world who speak French. We had one from the African continent, one from Marseille, France and one from Northern Quebec. All of these artists taught our students songs and games from their country.
Our 5th, 6th and 7th graders went to Alliance Francaise in May where students learned how to make a typical French dish. Students also watched an authentic French movie. As we studied the different regions of France we came across “Lorraine” where the quiche in quite popular. In June our 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders are going to Kids’ table where the will learn how to make a French quiche.
