Je suis une pizza, Charlotte Diamond

Year 3 read french pizza menus and pretended to order pizza in French. They then designed a pizza in French and made it and ate it. They also learned a French song about pizzas to help learn the words and phrases. Please visit: This song is from the CD "Qu'il y ait toujours le soleil" and is used with permission.
