NM Knows

Pommes a Pommes

This week, I found myself playing Apples to Apples in Ms. Cooper’s French 2 class. Ms. Cooper uses this games to support her curriculum. The game uses cognates (French words that are similar in English) and pop culture items to reinforce vocabulary, practice pronunciation, and show students how much French they know just by knowing their own English language.

Hands-on activities are a core part of the French curriculum at NM. Ms. Cooper believes that students learn by doing. Therefore, her classroom activities bring students face to face with French culture and language so that they are able to connect what they are learning to their own interests. The class had recently been discussing Thomas Pesquet, a French astronaut, who has worked on the International Space Station and speaks many languages. “Students often surprise themselves by taking a genuine interest in the French people” Ms. Cooper relates. “All my students have an opinion on French food, for example, especially croissants, and the many varieties of cheese!”
