Language for Little Learners


Making a train to help teach French

All aboard!!!

Your little boys will love this activity like my little boy did. Well, he’s not so little anymore. He turned 6 years old yesterday. What we did was we built a train using construction paper. Each car of train carried something inside. I let my son decide what he wanted to put inside the cars. So we drew and cut/pasted some of those objects on each car. Then on the outside of the car we wrote the name of what was inside it. We hung up the entire train on our French wall. My son chose to put money, flowers, candy, marshmellows, leaves and straws in his train cars.

You can even just take real objects and glue them on your train. It would’ve worked well for what he chose, but he really wanted to draw them so he did. With this activity the sky is the limit. You can do anything with it and since all boys love trains, they will enjoy it.
