Three Queens and some Geography

French Club met Tuesday, 25 January 2011 to celebrate “La Fête des Rois”.  Twenty-two French 1, 2 and 3 students dove into pieces of  ‘Galette’, a French cake made in January for this 3 Kings Day.  Instead of kings, we had 3 queens, each of whom found the lucky ‘fève’ – normally a bean or small figurine.

 

Then Madame Kenney (aka the wife of PCC pastor Tom Kenney) introduced the students to a salt-map version of France, teaching them the major rivers and mountain ranges.  Fingers got covered in home-made playdo, but the students had fun learning about Mont Blanc and La Seine.

About Maria

I belong to Christ. With Jesus as my creator, sustainer, redeemer, lord and brother, I find joy and satisfaction in my roles of wife, mom, friend, grandmother, teacher and feeder of 2 felines. I also love to read, hike, speak French, share ideas, cook and write!
