Step 1. Parent & Child Video

Step 3. This Week’s French Tasks:

“Tout sur moi” foldable booklet: 
Since the sound of the week is the sound “oi” (pronounced: “wah”), our first French activity is to make a little booklet “Tout sur moi” (all about me)! Your child will trace the words and fill in the blanks with drawings. Fold in half once, then fold in half again to make a little booklet! 

French Vocabulary: 
Moi = Me, pron: “mwah”
Chez moi = My home, pron: “shay mwah”
Ma famille = my family, pron: “mah fah-mee”
Mes trois couleurs préférées = my 3 favourite colours, pron: “may trwah koo-luhr pray-fay-ray”
Mon animal préféré = my favourite animal, pron: “mohw nah-nee-mahl pray-fay-ray”

For those who are just joining us this winter, I had shared this with our fall participants and I think it’s a helpful tool to have so I’m sharing it again here. Why is it important? Because the images I chose are relevant to both English and French words, ensuring there’s no confusion with letter learning!

This week’s focus: Les droites numériques, addition, and subtraction of small numbers.

Step 1. Parent Instructions Video

Step 2. Parent & Child Video

Here is “une droite numérique” = a number line: Number lines are frequently used to provide a visual for young children learning about counting forwards/backwards, as well as learning about addition and subtraction.

This week’s math task: We’re going to play a game in this week’s math to help children understand the concept of + and – with the help of a number line. If you were in our fall program, we played this game with ten frames, but this time I’ve added a number line to the game so we can play by moving a game piece on the line instead. I have included the instructions & pronunciation support in the download below. 🙂 

Add movement to the game: Instead of playing as a board game, an alternative to get your children moving is to create a number line on your floor with painters tape! Have them start at 0 and jump (saute!) forwards or backwards depending on the card that they choose. 

MAKE IT FUN! <- Fun ideas on how to practice your French counting

This week’s topic:  A fun science experiment using milk, dish soap, and food colouring! Watch Mme Amy’s video to know what to use & what to do and then complete the experiment yourself. 🙂

Step 2. Parent & Child Video

Some basic French vocabulary to assist you with this week’s science experiment:

Science Journal:
JK/SK has a huge range of abilities based on a child’s age and past experiences and so I always ensure worksheets can be modified to their needs. If your child can write, great! If not, not to worry at all- you can have them draw or even take photos and print and cut them out if they prefer it. 

“Outdoor Education” doesn’t have a parent & child video (since you’ll need to be outside to complete it!)

Outdoor Activity of the Week: This outdoor educational activity is both math and science related!

Des sculptures de glace / Ice sculptures

This week we’re making coloured ice blocks and building sculptures / patterning with them in the snow! No snow where you are? You can freeze them in your freezer and play with them outside or on a table instead. 

Step 1. Have your child help you mix food colouring or tempura paint into water. Place coloured water into ice cube trays or silicone moulds. 

Step 2. Leave the trays outside to freeze (if where you are is cold enough, otherwise place in freezer), you can check on them at various times to show your child the freezing process. 

Step 3. Once frozen, remove the colourful blocks and allow your child’s imagination to take the lead! A spray bottle will allow your child to stick the blocks together. Or practice your ABAB or ABCABC patterning 

Helpful French vocabulary:

  • C’est gelé (it’s frozen), pron: “saih juh-lay”
  • De la glace (ice!), pron: “duh lah glass”
  • C’est froid (the item is cold), pron: “saih frwah”, note if you’re saying it’s cold outside you say: Il fait froid, pron: “eel faih frwah”
  • De l’eau (some water), pron: “duh loh”
  • Les couleurs (the colours), pron: “lay koo-luhr”
  • Au-dessus (on top / above), pron: “oh duh-sew”
  • Ça colle (it sticks!), pron: “sah kull”
  • C’est tombé! (it fell down), pron: “saih tohm-bay”

Messages to Madame

If you would like to send me videos or photos of your child’s work / French practice, I would love to see it! I’ve found the easiest way is through instagram stories, posts, or even private message to our account. Not a fan of instagram? Not to worry! Feel free to send anything my way via email. Just note that sometimes photos/videos can be too large to send!

I will always do my best to respond asap to help encourage your little one 🙂
