Counting M&Ms

March 30, 2009 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: Uncategorized

One of the favorite ways to love to teach French to younger children is by using M&Ms (skittles work well too). You can buy those fun sized ones if you don’t want your children eating too much candy. What we each open our little bag of M&Ms. We separate the M&Ms into different groups of colors and talk about the different colors all in French. Then we count the M&Ms in each group in French. For my older son who is 6 years old now, we also throw a little math into it by making a chart to show how many of each color each packet had. And of course at the end of the lesson, your kids get to eat the candy!

Some vocabulary to help you with this lesson:
J’ai – I have
Tu as – You have
Nous avons – We have
un(e) – one
deux – two
trois – three
quatre – four
cinq – five
six- six
sept – seven
huit – eight
neuf – nine
dix – ten
