Grade 5 students visit La maison Felippa: Building relationships & French skills with Scrabble

Recently, Grade 5 students and their French teachers had a fabulous trip to the La maison Felippa near the Primary School as part of the ISP intergenerational learning project. Students spent the afternoon playing board games with Bernadette, Jean-Claude and Henriette, residents at La maison Felippa. Scrabble provided the perfect opportunity for students to enhance their French spelling and vocabulary.

"The first intergenerational exchanges with the students from the International School of Paris have been taking place every Monday afternoon in December. This has provided the opportunity for the Primary School children and our seniors to play educational games together. Our residents have been invited to attend the ISP Christmas party and concert at the Primary School on Thursday, December 21. They eagerly accepted the students' invitation with pleasure."
