Sandwiches are beautiful! Part One

Feast your eyes on these lovely sandwiches--perfect for picnics this time of year! These delectable creations come "prepared" by our creative chefs in Gr. 3/4:

I will be posting the rest of the 3/4 projects next week. We will be practicing reading and presenting our work this week and next. We will be using these for a restaurant menu board, coming to a bulletin board near you : )

Our Gr. 5/6 students are in the process of finishing the writing of their "skip the dishes" telephone skits which involve ordering crêpes from a restaurant. They have been doing an excellent job!

Our Gr. 7/8 students are finishing writing original crêpe recipes which will be compiled in a class recipe book.

Bon appétit!

Le Croissant: Excursion #2

The visit to Le Croissant with our second group of Gr. 7/8 students was just as wonderful as our first!  A picture is worth a thousand words; here are a few photos that capture our enjoyment:

Bonne semaine!

Le Croissant: Excursion #1

These photos are from last week's trip to Le Croissant. We divided our class into two groups for this experience. Next week we will show you the photos from this week's trip!

This fieldtrip is optional but all students chose to participate! It is an excellent cultural and linguistic experience in a francophone setting. Students interacted with Mme Boulanger en français to place and receive their orders of authentic and yummy French baked goods!

Joyeuse Fête des Mères et bonne fin de semaine!

French club: Les crêpes!

Here, in our final session for French club, the Gr. 7/8 class prepared crêpes! The recipe follows our photos.

We started by preparing fruit...

...and cracking eggs.

When we were done cracking eggs, one of the students said "Hey, we made a smiley face!" What a happy accident!

Salt was added to the eggs and they were blended.

We measured the flour to add to the eggs. This made a thick batter which we then thinned out with some milk.

The first crêpes are made.

What presentation!

We need to get this just right...


A yummy time was had by all! Praise God who gives us so many good things to enjoy! 

The Gr. 7/8 class will go on to work on writing their own crêpe recipe with original fillings and toppings as their written project for this term.


un oeuf battu
de la farine, environ ½ tasse
du lait, 3.25 % -- environ 1/8  tasse
du sel—1/8 cuillière à thé

The Gr. 5/6 class did a lovely job illustrating le calendrier de mai! This class is currently working on creating a "Skip the Dishes" telephone dialogue which they will read and present as their project for their foods unit.

The Gr. 3/4 class is working on a written piece which describes an original sandwich creation.  Bravo, mes élèves!

Bonne fin de semaine,
Mme Christensen
