My French IV students (22 in all) went to celebrate National World / Foreign Language Week with the current 8th grade French students at the middle school, MSMS. Our students choreographed a dance based on the theme of one of our stories, L'enfant noir by Camara Laye. They also performed the French Canadian square dance, <<la quadrille>> to the song of << Aux Champs d'Elysée.>>

La Fête des Rois

Today we celebrate <<La Fête des Rois>> (Epiphany Day / Three Kings Day) on which the French prepare a cake with a good luck charm inside. It is believed that the person who selects this piece will have << Bonne Chance>> for the rest of the year. Today our baker, Dilan selected a recipe from southern France. Our winner was Ranya. <<Bonne Chance>> à elle pour toute l'année qui suit!!!
