Joyeuses Pâques! Happy Easter!

This past month our calendar has featured different pictures that have initiated small conversations about how we feel.  We learned that we needed to use either the verb 'être' or the verb 'avoir' in order to express ourselves in full sentences.

Some students created short graphic texts using this vocabulary!  Great job!

The Grade 7/8 French club made bannock this week, which we thought was appropriate as it was "Country Week" in our school and the First Nations were being studied.  Bannock was also enjoyed during our Festival du Voyageur celebrations last month but we did not have a chance to prepare it then.

A recipe for bannock was posted last month in this blog entry:

Our bannock would likely have risen more had we used a frying pan with a lid or an oven, but it was yummy nonetheless!

We ended our week with an Easter egg hunt in the French classroom!  If a class succeeded in finding all 32 plastic eggs, we opened each one and found words that could be combined to make sentences similar to the ones we learned from the pictures in our daily calendar. The Grade 7/8 students did a very good job hiding eggs in all sorts of tricky places for the Gr. 4/5 class after them!

An egg symbolises new life in Christ. I wish "Joyeuses Pâques" to all our school families as we celebrate all that Jesus has done for us in His death and resurrection this Easter.  

Bonnes vacances!
