Célébrons la francophonie is a collection of activities for FSL teachers to use with their students to explore and celebrate the French language and the French-speaking world. CASLT provides this resource for the Semaine nationale de la francophonie, an opportunity to celebrate a rich, exciting, and dynamic Francophone community in Canada.
FSL teachers – participate in the live Kahoot! with your students to:
- Connect in real time with other teachers and students in Canada celebrating French
- Have fun while promoting the use and acquisition of the French language
- Have a chance to win prizes – there will be several prize draws for participants during the live event
Feel free to have your students participate individually or participate all together as a class.
My school division does not allow the use of Zoom. Can I still participate in the event?
CASLT makes every effort to ensure that its services and offerings are as accessible as possible. Since there is no universal virtual meeting platform, we decided to use Zoom.
