France and THANK YOU to Zingerman’s!

We had a great week studying France!  The children had been studying the Europe map, euros and other objects from France.  We have two students who speak French fluently and they helped to teach us new words and sing songs for us.  When we learn about a country, we like to taste the food, see photos and objects and interact with people from the country if possible.

We are so lucky in Ann Arbor to have the amazing Zingerman’s!  They generously donated croissants to us so we would have a taste of France!

We used a straight stitch and sewed a French flag.

Our French family had picked this up last summer while home for a visit.  We learned how to say numbers, seasons, months and weather in French.

The children were able to enjoy a fun art project.  Each day we had a different page from a book bought at the Louvre.

They trace their hand like the picture and use chalk pastels to color in.  Some children wrote the name of the animal in French.

Thanks to Zingerman’s and all who helped to make our study of France so lovely!

Merci beaucoup!
