Duck, Duck, Goose for French!

February 14, 2010 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: game teach french learn

A friend of mine told me about this variation to Duck, Duck, Goose for learning French. You and your children can sit in a circle like normal. One person stands up and taps everyone on the head as they walk by, and instead of saying “Duck”, they say, “Bonjour!”(hello) And instead of saying “Goose,” they say, “Au revoir!” (goodbye).

Whoever they say “Au revoir” to then jumps up and chases the other person around the circle trying to touch them before their spot is taken.

The great thing about this, is that you can modify the game to teach any pair words in French like, “merci” (thank you) and “de rien” (you’re welcome).

I spy something…

Today I spent about 30 minutest playing I spy with my daughter in French. She really enjoyed it. If your kids are beginners, you can simply say: “I spy, with my little eye, something vert.” (green) However, if you want you can increase the difficulty you can, say: “Je vois quelque chose vert.” (I see something green.) It’s really a fun way to pass the time, while learning a little French.

Also, depending on where you play this game you can practice different types of vocabulary. In the kitchen, at the park, outside, in the bedroom, or even in the bathroom while they are taking a bath. Why not? Even if they don’t know the word and they say the word in English, you can say, yes, it is a ____ and change their English word to French.
