Students at Janeville Elementary created a Parisian experience in the 4/5 Intensive French class. As part of the BLEP funds students researched, designed and created a French Parisian Cafe. They made decorations, put up lights , created centre pieces and more! They planned menus and researched recipes. Students voted on what they wanted as a final menu. They learned new terms for food and language on how to be a server in a cafe. Students practiced with each other, finalized the menu and decor and then invited guests. Students invited a line dancing group that had both Anglophones and Francophones- LeeAnn's Line Dancers. Students set the stage with hostess', French music and of course a full menu. Grade 4/5 students took orders and filled them creating Croque Monsieur, une assiette du fromage, and desserts of chocolate eclairs, chocolate croissants and more! Students learned about using a French press to make coffee as well. Students were then treated to line dancing with French cultural music.
It was a great learning experience and gave an authentic experience to use the language they have been learning.
