Une Voiture Bleue! A Blue Car!

July 15, 2009 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: teach kids french children resources

In French usually the adjective comes after the noun. One way you can teach the diffent noun/adjective order in French to your child is to use a wipe board. You can draw a noun first like a une voiture (car) then afterwards you can draw a blob of the color like bleu(e) (blue). Then you can teach them une voiture bleue (blue car). Here is an example:

(As you can tell you don’t have to be an artist to get the point across to your child.)
Once that clicks you can add a few more words and in no time your child will be saying sentences. You can teach them ‘J’ai” (I have), then with the part they learned above they can now say: “ J’ai une voiture bleu.”

*Please note, it is useful to teach them the article (le, la or une, un) with the noun so that they will remember the two together. This will make things easier in the future.
