Easter Worksheet – learning French colors

March 25, 2010 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: Easter learn teach kid

Here’s a French Easter egg worksheet I made for my children today and I hope you find it useful. It has a color key in French and they can color the eggs according to it. Also, you can have them count the eggs and designs in French. I think it’s important to use the current holidays in order to motivate children to learn a foreign language. Enjoy!

Here’s an Easter worksheet that I made which you can use to help your children practice their numbers in French! After they finish matching the eggs with the same numbers, you can tell them different colors in French which they can color the eggs.

The Jelly Bean Olympics

March 22, 2010 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: Easter learn teach kid, Jellybeans

Some days I just get to where I want to goof off all day. Today was one of those days. I did it, but in a fun and educational way. We had the Jelly Bean Olympics. We had silly games using jelly beans and the whole time I made the kids speak French.

One game was a jellybean relay where each kid had to have a spoon with 1 jelly bean and then run the distance of the yard, the other child was then shouting out the number in French, then we switched kids and added a jelly bean. The other child now had to yell out the number in French. We also yelled things like, “Cours!” (run) and “vite!” (quickly).

We also had a jelly bean toss where I laid different colors of construction paper on the ground and they had to toss their jelly beans to the right color of paper. So, if they had a blue jelly bean then they had to throw it on the blue piece of paper. (Of course they had to use their French and say which color they had.

We tried to balance jelly beans on our noses, but that wasn’t very successful, but it did bring a lot of laughs!

And what do you think we did at the end? Yup, we ate a bunch of jellybeans! All and all a good day!

French Easter Traditions

March 09, 2010 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: Easter learn teach kid

I did some research on French Easter Traditions and found lots of great information.

One Easter game that children play is they roll raw eggs down a slope. The person whose egg did not break is the winner.

Another game they play is to toss row eggs into the air. The person whose egg breaks first is the loser.

Poisson d’Avril means April fish. It’s chocolate in the shape of a fish. Children eat them in French throughout the month of April. They also have chocolate bells which symbolize the real bells that are rung on Easter Sunday for the Resurrection of Jesus.

Maybe you can incorporate some of these traditions in your family, though I’m not too sure about playing with raw eggs. 🙂
