La Pâtisserie française is one of the many chapters in the course BIENVENUE AU SNACK-BAR.
One of the perks of teaching and of learning French is the “obligation” to try French pastries…to better understand the culture…of course!
In this chapter in the book/eBook and corresponding video, we visit one of the best French pastry shops in the world, meet an awesome pastry chef, learn about French pastries, the different kinds of French bread, and more! Come and join us!
La culture française est fantastique. Il y a beaucoup de bonnes choses, et il y a…les pâtisseries françaises !!! Dans cette vidéo, nous découvrons les principales pâtisseries françaises, le pain français, et nous visitons une des meilleures pâtisseries au monde.
The students LOVED the snack bar. We ended up drawing our own snack bars in groups and setting up a conversation around each snack bar. Loads of fun!!! Thank you! Karine Tregear
I showed your site at “Parents Night” and they were thrilled! My students love Planet French! We are doing clothes in 8th grade so I had them watch the segment on “Les vêtements de vélo” and answer a questionnaire about it. Merci pour tout! Nicole Baker
My students and I loved the video les pommes and worked very well with it . Mrs. Mazur
The Halloween videos were very entertaining and students were able to follow along with you. The topics were interesting to my intermediate students and your rate of speech is understandable for them. Judith Ward
Thanks so much – btw I LOVED the zombies video!” “Madeline Turan
Margie James, French teacher in Ontario, says: With the different color coded levels, it was really neat that I had it all in one pack…it’s hard to differentiate all the time…And the videos really helped as they were able to use all the visual cues…it’s great !
J. Lattanzio, French teacher in Dundas “I really liked the layout of this new book with the three different levels of reading difficulty colour-coded , the interesting historical facts found within, the various dialogues that could be easily acted out by students to practice their oral skills, and all of the colourful pictures. My students enjoyed the video very much and are engaged with all the activities that Guy supplied. They are motivated to practice all four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking ) and engage with each other in a much more dynamic way.”
Perfect! …They love it! …Thanks again! Merci Beaucoup!!” Louise OLOF
Cher Guy, Mes élèves ont tellement adoré votre livre et vidéo (…) Les élèves s’amusaient beaucoup en faisant ces activités, (…) ! C’était vraiment un plaisir (…) !!! Merci beaucoup! Bien à vous, ” Stephanie Potier West Hills Middle School
My students and I enjoy your products… as we get to watch your videos and read the books. …Thank you for your efforts. They support me in mine.” Melinna MacKenzie GP Christian School
I just clicked on one of the stories and videos and it looks perfect for the level of our students. Thanks again, Patrice”
I’ve been using Planet French for the past 4 months and I really like it. My students can access most resources (videos, news, e-texts,…). Both Core French and French Immersion students can access resources. And my students love the fact that they can actually understand when I show them a video or when we read a book. We just finished the unit (=Booksmarts kit) about Bonhomme Carnaval, which comes with a teacher’s guide (with an AOT = culminating task), an e-book, and videos. My students were engaged and learned a lot. We also had a lot of discussions which was great for their oral French. We will continue to watch the news, and we will use the Booksmarts kit “Le Monde des Animaux” during our study of “Habitats”. There are also videos that I will integrate in my health unit on nutrition. And I haven’t explored all the resources yet! ” Agnes MacNay Gr.4 FI Room 5 Notre Dame School, ON
“I am truly enjoying having access to all of the videos and lessons and ebooks on Planet French. Thanks for all you do! Your materials are excellent and are very much appreciated! Bonne Journée!” Debbie Blais Jaffray Elem/Junior Secondary, BC
“I am new in this role and I haven’t really had the time yet to look at and try out all of your resources. So far I have just been using some videos, which are just great for my grade fours with the slow, clear French. I like how the videos are seasonal or related to current events. e.g. The videos about Ouragan Irma were very topical and interesting for us. Keep up the great work!” Clare, CESD73, BC
Toi, tu es fantastique!” Josée Boutin SK-12 French as a Second Language Consultant Kawartha Pine Ridge DSB, ON
You are awesome! Thank you Guy:)” Laura Harrison, French Consultant, SD68, Nanaimo, BC
Love the videos for Valentine’s day. So love having something theme related to watch, in FRENCH !!!!! Thank you” Lise Callahan
I love your site and it is my favourite for listening activities for sure.
My students also love you and they say, bonjour! Thanks.” Tara Lee Carpenter, 4-8 French/Arts, Primary and EY Prep Coverage
First and foremost I want to say thank you to whomever I spoke to on the phone during the last few days. You have excellent customer service—were genuinely helpful and not just trying to sell a product. It was greatly appreciated. As a teacher buying this out of pocket, the customer service really is one of the factors that made me take the plunge. I will be sure to spread the word on these products as I learned about them on Facebook.”Merci,Alicia Mancuso
I have been using ‘Les nouvelles’ with my French as a second language students at the beginning of class. Your news sets the tone for the hour and the students look forward to seeing M. Pina Colada, as they refer to you =) We listen to the selection twice and the students report out what they understood or they ask questions about what they did not understand. So it is for speaking and listening purposes. They enjoy seeing different parts of Canada as well as the cultural information provided.”
Merci beaucoup, Nori
Just received the videos and books that we ordered. Just wanted to let you know that these are a wonderful resource for us …
Thanks so much!”
