J’aime les mots 2023

Do you like memes? You’ll like J’aime les mots!

Teachers, librarians, those in charge of extracurricular activities or recreation, take part in the 6th edition of J’aime les mots, a fun, turnkey activity sponsored this year by cartoonist and author Michel Rabagliati!

Whether you’re teaching French, history, art, drama, Québec culture and citizenship, mathematics or any other subject, get your students to create memes to express themselves on issues big and small, or to react to current events.

Launched on Friday, September 29, the activity will run until Friday, October 27.

Four TOP 5s!
You asked, we listened! This year, there will be not three but four TOP 5s, compiled by our beloved sponsor on Fridays October 6, 13, 20 and 27.

Rich and varied image banks

Humor, poetry, philosophical reflection, irony… The possibilities are endless, as long as you use royalty-free image banks chosen by major cultural institutions for their memorable potential.

Pedagogical tools

Once registered, participants have automatic access to all the images they can use for their creations, as well as to the teaching guide, the student guide and a fun presentation on the art of the meme.

Teachers or specialists, register now!

*Please note that since the activity is conducted in French, most of our tools are only available in French.
