Hi, I have a job teaching my daughter's French-speaking class of 6-7 yr olds. This is their first year so we're at the basics stage: colours, numbers, my name is etc.... Focus is entirely on oral skills.

Any ideas for fun games to encourage them to talk? I've downloaded lots of flashcards as prompts.

I sing like a dying duck, so please don't suggest songs Laughing

Thank you!

Use records, CDs or an MP3 player with song recorded.

You have the ideal informant in your daughter as to what the children are interested in.

Our 6 and 7 year old kids love bugs. "Worms" was a great topic. We had five tables - one with the children feeling different kinds of soil, finding out how porous it was by pouring water through, finding out how much nutrition there was from each one, making a poster by gluing on the soil at different levels and then handling worms and finding out their parts. It was a huge success and the kids talked about it for weeks afterwards. Any science project will intrigue them I'm sure.

Have you visited enchantedlearning.com for ideas?

There are a ton of ideas from past posts - just click on a name in this section and you will see past posts with many, many ideas.

I saw a grade 4 teacher in Canada use a French video of animals and their young which he knew would appeal to the kids--he pre-taught them some of the language.
