I spy in French using binoculars

January 16, 2010 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: eye spy learn french children

This is a cute and silly way to change I spy a bit. First, you take 2 empty toliet paper rolls and wrap them in black construction paper. Then you can tape the 2 together to make binoculars. You can even put strings on the back if you want.
Then, you and your children can take turns using the binoculars to play I spy in French. “I spy with my little eye quelque chose bleu.” (something blue) You can do more or less in French whatever your child is comfortable with.

Puzzle time to learn body parts in French

January 15, 2010 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: game learn french body parts


Here’s a lesson where you can teach your kids (or reinforce) the body parts in French. What you do is double click on this picture and print it out. Then cut it to be a puzzle. Cut it where you have an arm, a foot, eyes, whatever you want to teach your children. Then, you can ask your child to put the pieces together. As they pick up a piece they can say the name in French and put the puzzle together. You can do this with any picture you find on the internet. Or even a picture of your child.

Here’s a list of body parts in French:

head -la tête
face – le visage
neck – le cou
eye – l’œil
eyes – les yeux
nose – le nez
ear – l’oreille
mouth – la bouche
hair – les cheveux
arm – le bras
hand – la main
fingers – les doigts
finger – le doigt
back – le dos
leg – la jambe

My kids have been begging me to play more Bingo games. I searched high and low to find a good one I can put here. If you click on the picture, it will take you to a site where you can print that one and others as well. They have multiple bingo boards, so it will be authentic Bingo you can play with your kids.

Print out an extra copy to cut out or write the name of each picture on a paper, so you can draw them out of a hat. Simply say the name in French and then your children can use markers to cover the correct picture. Below is a helpful list of animal names in French.

Horses in French

January 12, 2010 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: horse french learn kids teach

My daughter loves horses and she asked me to learn some horse words in French and wanted to play some kind of horse game too.


Vocabulary:

le cheval – the horse

les chevaux – the horses

J’ai – I have

Tu as – You have

Activity:

What we did was simply gather all of her toy horses together (mostly My Little Ponies) and we grouped them and talked about how many she had and how many I had. We also spoke about them running and jumping. She also spoke about how she loved them in French. So, you can make this activity to the level of your children.

Here’s a small clip of her speaking French.
