Language for Little Learners


Teaching boys French

April 13, 2009 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: teach boys french children train

Now it’s time for a little French for boys. What do boys like? My 6 year old boy loves cars, constuction equiptment and trains. So I try to throw some specialized lessons that are just right for him. One game I like to do is we set up all of the dining room chairs in a straight line and we pretend it’s a train. He usually wants to be the conductor and I’m usually a passenger. Then we say where we are going and what we see in French. This isn’t a game just for boys, my 3 year old daughter loves it too.

Je vois un oiseau. I see a bird.
Je vois un arbre. I see a tree.
Je vois une maison. I see a house.

One thing you can do with your train game, you can focus on 1 specific group of words for your train journey that day. Colors, numbers, family members, animals, whatever you have been studying that day or whatever you wish to review.
