This year at LaSalle II we took French to a new level by practicing French deeply. We have spent some more time on each unit in order to enhance long term learning. We believe that this “Deep practice” has deepen the students’ understanding of the language and allowed for oral and written communication in class. This has led students more students led learning and leadership. Please encourage your child to keep practicing over the summer, “with Languagenut and Powerspeak.”
We also recently went to “Kids’ Table” where students were able to make a very old French dish called “galette.” Galette is a term used in French cuisine to designate various types of flat round or freeform crusty cakes. Students were able to make a “pomme galette”, with “la crème fouette” home made whip cream.
