Joyeuses Pâques

In our first lesson back, Preps, Grade 1&2 and Grade 3&4 were learning about les Pâques (Easter) in France.

We practiced saying Joyeuses Pâques (Happy Easter) to each other.

We looked at the different chocolats délicieux that French people eat at Easter.

We listened to a story about how, as well as the Easter bunny, flying cloches (bells) bring chocolates to French children on Easter morning.

How did you celebrate les Pâques? Do you know of any more Easter traditions like the flying cloches?

Ainsi font font font

Ainsi font font font est une comptine française classique sur les marionnettes. Les Preps et Grade 1&2 aiment la chanter et faire les actions.

Ainsi font font font is a classic French nursery rhyme about puppets. The Preps and Grade 1&2s like singing it and doing the actions.

On a fait des marionettes. Voici des exemples magnifiques.

We made some puppets. Here are some magnificent examples.
