This year we had a World Language Week the first week back from vacation. All the language classes had a special theme for the day. We had the following themes:
1. Music-- We listened to music through the ages. We listened to music by the composer Bizet and songs by Edith Piaf. We then watched some youtube videos of current singers.
2. Craft-- We made Mardi Gras masks. We had glitter and bling! We made masks to wear at a Mardi Gras party.
3. Dance-- We learned a French peasant dance and ballet terms. We all had a chance to try things out.
4. Food-- We ate French food. Students made Cakes of the King which is a common food on Epiphany.
We had a great week! Everyone had a chance to spread the good humor of languages to everyone. Students had opportunity to get extra credit. They could teach a friend some words that they could recite. They could wear a language t-shirt or the colors of the flag pertaining to their language.
