Learning Colors in French – One Meal at a Time

March 19, 2011 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: teach children french

Are you just starting teaching your children their colors in French? Why not have a whole meal in the color you are trying to teach them? That way during the meal you can repeat the name of the color in French lots of times.

For example:
Orange – mandarin oranges, carrots, mac & cheese, cantelope, pimento cheese
Green – salad, bell peppers, zuchini squash, green beans
Red – red peppers, cherries, strawberries, strawberry ice cream, red beans
Yellow – corn, yellow butter bread, pinapples, bananas, noodles with a yellow cream sauce
Blue – blueberries (okay you’d probably have to cheat on this on and use some food dye)

French babysitters

Want your kids to get a little native French speaker influence? Why not get a French babysitter? There are many French students at the local universities and many offer babysitter or tutoring services.

We had 3 French Au Pairs and it was really great for the kids to become more immersed with the language. I asked them to only speak in French during the time they spent with them.

There are various websites to help with finding a French Aupair or Nanny such as:

However if you are looking for just a babysitter, you could try your local craigslist or newspaper or even place a job ad. at the local college. Another place you might want to try is the local French alliance club.

Good Luck!
