Language for Little Learners


Run with what you got

August 24, 2009 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: Uncategorized

Not sure where to start this school year with French for you preschoolers or homeschooled kids? Why not just start with what they like and run with that?

My daughter is really into tea parties, so we like to practice French while having a tea party. My son is not big into tea parties, after all he “is 6 and is not a girl.” But, what little 6 year old boy can resist some milk and cookies for the tea party? Not my son. Since a tea party is very prim and proper we practiced our polite French words like:

de rien – please
s’il vous plait – please
merci – thank you
excuse me – excusez-moi

We also tried to stick with French for the entire tea party, which was hard. So, if it gets too tough just stick with saying French for a few things to start with. The key is to keep the kids happy and interested.
