Lesson Of The Week 11/20-11\21
Mrs. Jacobs!!!
Jacobs LOTW
The French class excitement reached mythical proportions this week - it was positively de-MONSTER-ative!

Mademoiselle Jacobs' crew isn't just dipping their toes into French waters; they're diving in headfirst. After learning parts of the body in French, students seamlessly blended their knowledge of colors, characteristics, and personalities. Talk about a linguistic potion with a splash of rainbow charm!

Armed with an arsenal of French vocabulary, the students were more prepared to take on their magical French task. Their mission? Crafting monstrous biographies that would make Dracula do a double-take. Each student summoned their inner artist, drawing and describing their unique creatures using the French words they'd mastered in previous lessons.

In this monster mash-up of creativity and language prowess, students had so many choices that no two outcomes were alike. The project was a virtual gallop through the French linguistic Louvre! The monsters that were created were fantastic, and the student creativity was "fantastique."

Witnessing these young linguists flex their French muscles while conjuring up their own fantastical creatures was truly a sight to behold. It's safe to say that in Mrs. Jacobs' class, language learning isn't just a lesson; it's a magical adventure. Stay tuned for more linguistic wizardry and fantastique creations in the weeks to come!
