  • My students really enjoyed this activity. They teasingly said "that was actually fun"! We stayed in French and they enjoyed the opportunity to personalize.

  • This activity is a BLAST! Students absolutely had a ball and it was a great stress-reliever on a dreary day, and the entire activity was in French to boot! MERCI!

  • This was a fun, comprehensible, and engaging no-prep activity for those long days before winter break. I appreciate the different options included with the activity, so I could personalize the activity to my class.

  • Very fun activity that my students loved and were very engaged with. They did not realize how much reading and comprehensible input they were actually getting in addition to a chance to express their creativity and just have some fun at the end of a long week of classes.

  • We had a blast with this!! It was hilarious to watch the students create the paper plate glyph. When they yelled it was too hard, I jumped it and had a student read while I drew the glyph. However everyone laughed once it was over and top 5 got prizes.
