French IV / V Cooking Creatively in the Kitchen of BHS

French IV / V students are reading Le petit prince. Working in pairs and being given selected chapters, they had to create an appetizer, main meal, and / or dessert which best depicts the scene after which they had to write in their blog in the target language using their HOTS verbs (Higher Order Thinking Skills), e.g, to illustrate, to support, to teach, etc. 3 paragraphs why they chose the particular culinary product. They had so much fun with this project.

Valentine's Day 2016 with the French Club- 10th year!

For the 10th year in a row, the French Club held the Valentine's Day Sales Event at BHS selling flowers and chocolates. This year we ran the event for 3 weeks instead of 2. Sales doubled!! Tonight members of the French Club met at my home to assemble the chocolates and the flowers for distribution tomorrow morning before homeroom. All of our proceeds go to the American Red Cross Haitian Relief Fund. A hearty thank you to all of the participating members!!! What a success!!
