Manie Musicale

April 2024

Grade 7

Manie Musicale is a program initiated by French teachers in Maine, to encourage students to have fun while learning French. It is modeled on the "March Madness" of the NCAA basketball playoffs, and is designed to engage students learning French by listening to French music videos and voting for their favorites. Students in French class listen to and talk about the 16 songs that are in the "brackets" for the competition, and then predict which artists and songs will win. 

Manie Musicale also organizes competitions by students in several categories of singing and dancing. A group of five 7th grade French students created a dance and entered their video recording in the dance competition. 

Our students won 2ND PLACE!  They will be receiving gifts from the Manie Musicale organization to celebrate their win.
