We give junior-level French teachers a fun and affordable way to enrich French programming with culture-focused, interactive class-based festivals.
F.E.T.E (Festivals Éducatifs à Ton École) makes it easy for French teachers to integrate culture, history, and la Francophonie into FSL classrooms - core, extended, and immersion from grades 3-6.
Our facilitators travel to schools around Ontario throughout the school year, teaching French as a second language through the celebration of cultural festivals. We offer a choice between 4 popular French-Canadian festivals, making it fun and easy for beginner and advanced students to learn and use French through our action-oriented activities.
"My favourite part was watching the students because they were so engaged." ~ Mrs.Arabia, teacher
WE MAKE LEARNING FRENCH FUN
Let us help you engage your students in French using hands-on, action-oriented, authentic activities that kids love!
Depending on the festival you choose, the interactive mini-lesson and celebration theme changes, while the menu of activities are always tried-and-true-kid-favourites:
cookie-decorating with cultural symbols
a festival game
a festival-themed wood craft to decorate and keep as a zipper-pull for backpacks or as key chains - Make & collect them all!
festival-themed traditional music
spoons for playing along to the music
"The festival made today the best day at school ever!" ~ Hunter (Grade 5 student)
"F.E.T.E. presented the 'Festival d'Érable' at both of my schools and the students had a blast! The students even left with a little gift of their own (which they were SO excited about). I look forward to having them bring the other festivals to my schools in years to come!" ~ Mme Tavares, enseignante
