We got some great French books from the library. This songbook is our own and the children were able to sing quite a few with me as they have a large collection of French nursery rhyme cds they often listen to in the car: Savez vous planter les choux, a la mode, al la mode. Savez vous planterles choux, a la mode de chez nous.
We had a fun discussion about French cheeses and which part of France they originate and which animal they come from. They all have a particular awareness of this as Monkey Girl has a mild intolerance to cow's milk and so drinks goats' milk.
What better way to start our French project than have a mini French pic-nic? We had a fun time in the supermarket first thing looking for all things French. I got some funny looks in the alcohol aisle when the girls started yelling "Mummy is this French wine?"
I am sensing a croissant breakfast later in the week...
