Claudia, Sayla, Gracelynn, Chloe, McCullum, Knoxley, and Jace act out a scene from “The Three Little Pigs” entirely in French.

Grade 2 students learn through short play

Les Trois Petits Cochons taught the students upwards of 500 new French words

Grade 2 students from Mme. Masikewich’s class at Ecole Our Lady of the Rosary, put on a unique performance for family and friends which showed off the student’s skills.

The class put on a performance of “The Three Little Pigs”, though a little different than you might remember.

“Les Trois Petits Cochons” was told entirely in French by the French Immersion students. The show included singing, dancing and acting by the young actors.

While the show included songs the students sang and danced to, music played another role in the show.

One reason the little pigs could not hear the Big Bad Wolves, was because they were too busy playing guitar, listening to music on headphones, or dancing to music.

In all, the short play lasted a half an hour, and guests were happy to be invited.

The play helped teach the students between 450 and 500 new words in French.

When asked, in French, what the students enjoyed about the play, their answers varied from the music to dancing or even the funny wolves.

Diane Kulczycki, principal of Our Lady of the Rosary School, called the performance “fantastique” and was amazed by the amount of words learned from one play.


Three little pigs, Brady, Wyatt, Oceana tell the wolves Jace and Gracelynn they are not allowed to come into their brick home.
