Language for Little Learners


Another way to learn French vocabulary…

May 02, 2009 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: Uncategorized

A few days ago I wrote about having a French word wall to introduce new French words. Another way to introduce French vocabulary is to label objects in your hours. What we do is we pick a theme and label those objects for 2 weeks. We don’t label too many things or the kids get overwhelmed. My daughter likes to have the things labeled in her room. So we labeled her bed as le lit. Every night before we go to sleep she points to the little note card and says ‘Le lit, le lit!’ It’s very cute.

As for the themes, you can have colors, furniture, toys, kitchen objects, bathroom items, the options are limitless. Whatever you are studying that week you can label. I would suggest to only label about 10-15 things at a time. When you are ready to label new items, then you can removed the old labels and review them at the same time. You can even make a game out of it and tell your kids to go find the ‘le lit’ label, etc.
