Playing dress up to learn French

April 05, 2010 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: clothing french learn kids

I found the cutest little web site that is very basic and easy to use for kids, but engaging as well. It is where you drag clothes onto a little girl and dress her up. Just like Paper dolls, but on the computer. You gotta love technology!

Here’s the link. When you use it, make sure your son or daughter practices their French while dressing up the little girl.

Here are some words that might be useful for this exercise:

un pull – sweater
un tee-shirt – T-shirt
un pantalon – pants
un jean – jeans
une jupe – skirt
une robe – dress
un chapeau – hat

More Felt Doll Activities

March 29, 2010 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: clothing french learn kids, Uncategorized

My motto with homeschooling is to run with whatever works. What worked was the felt dolls. So, today I practiced listening comprehension with my kids. I told them how to dress the dolls in French and then they had to dress the dolls correctly.

We also reversed this and they had to tell me how to dress the dolls in French. I turned my back so that they couldn’t see what I was doing. It made it more fun for them to see if mom would get it right.

Then, when daddy got home from work, we let him join in the action. A simple, yet very effective way to teach French clothing words.

You can also do this with felt faces and different color eyes, mouths and hair.

Felt dolls and French

March 28, 2010 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: clothing french learn kids

A really fun thing I did with my kids this weekend was to cut out a few dolls and clothes from felt. Felt is kind of hard to cut for kids, so I did most of that work, but they got to design the clothes.

Felt is really neat because it stick to other felt. Thus, you can play ‘paper dolls’ but with your felt dolls. While you do this you can practice clothing words in French.

First, you can have your children decorate the clothes you cut out with glitter, markers, fake jewels or anything you can think of. Then, afterwards you can do different role playing games or just change the clothes and mix and match outfits. Make sure they practice their French the entire time!

I think your kids will really enjoy this activity. And, felt is really cheap to buy. You can find it at Wal-mart or Michael’s.
Here’s an example of what you can do. Ours didn’t turn out as well, so I thought I’d show this example instead. 🙂

Here are a few French clothing words you can use:

un manteau -coat
un pull – sweater
un tee-shirt – T-shirt
un pantalon – pants
un jean – jeans
un short – shorts
des chausettes – socks
des chaussures – shoes
des tennis – sneakers
un pyjama – pajamas
