Adventures in Grade 2 French Exposure
I wish the title read: Adventures in Grade 2 French Immersion, but for now exposure will have to do. As educators, we all know our school day is beyond packed with curricula. Despite the cramped school day, I decided to add one more thing (how many of us have said that phrase before?)! However, I truly believe that learning a foreign language as a child is so important! Kids are like little sponges and another great benefit is that they have perfect accents!
So this school year, I have set off to expose children to the beautiful language of française. I am attempting to do this by integrating French into my morning work and morning meeting time. The kids really seem to be enjoying this so far! I recently dug up an old french CD for children and it was perfect for the upcoming holiday. Is anyone familiar with the french song, C'est l'Halloween? You may remember this song from your high school french class! You can watch the video and hear the song here:
Needless to say my kids love the song...unfortunately they got in trouble for singing it at computer time! I am going to have to remind them when it is appropriate to sing!
À la prochaine!
(Until next time)
