Language for Little Learners


Creating a French picture dictionary

August 26, 2009 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: Uncategorized

One useful way to help your little French learners retain the vocabulary words they have learned is to have them create a little French picture dictionary. Any spiral notebook or something like that will do. If your kids can write, they can write the words and then draw a picture. If they can’t write yet, you can write the words, but still have them draw the pictures next to it.

This exercise will help your kids gain ownership of their learning and they will be proud to show their dictionary to grandma and grandpa, I’m sure.

This is especially useful if your kids are at the reading age, but even if they aren’t, it’s a good way to help you remember what words in French you have taught your kids.

    Thank you for a great tip! We are a homeschooling family, and I am teaching my 4 and 6 year old from your Flip Flop French level 1 (I am a beginner as well). We are going through the lessons at half-speed in order to leave time for rhymes and songs, and this will be a great activity for the second week of each lesson, in order to promote retention and give us a nice tracking device for our progress.
