Hopscotch and French!

February 16, 2010 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: French numbers learn kids teach

About 10 o’clock in the morning, my kids start to go nuts. It’s too early for lunch and it’s too late to be calm and 1/2 asleep. So, we usually go outside and play some kind of game. Today, my daughter wanted to play hop scotch and without my coaxing, she played it in French!

I know that there is still a lot of snow on the ground up North, so you can keep this idea in your back pocket for the Spring. All you have to have is a flat sidewalk and some chalk. Your kids can practice saying their French numbers as you draw it or you can have them draw it themselves and say the numbers in French. Then, you can play it with a pebble, where they throw it on a number and they don’t hop on that square. As they land on the other squares they can say that number in French.

Here’s a variation if you really want to switch things up. You can make the square in different colored chalk and you can even put the numbers in the wrong order. That way they aren’t counting up and they will have to remember the exact number in French.
