Extra Resources:

Click the link at the end of each weekly plan to access “Madame Amy’s classroom” for extra French resources and support related to the week’s plans.

This week’s focus: Name writing, the alphabet, common words/phrases

Step 1. Watch the parent instructions video. 

Step 2. Watch the parent & child video

Step 3. Complete this week’s task.

Step 4. Complete this week’s letters and words of the week activities.


Step 1. Parent Instructions Video

This is the parent explanations video for French, Math, and science all in one! Please watch as it has important details with regards to resources that will remain available to you!

Step 2. Parent & Child Video

Step 3. This Week’s French Tasks:

Body Parts: Use the downloadable pdf package below to practice “les parties du corps”.

How to use this package:
1. Print or save the two “les parties du corps” vocabulary sheets. 
2. Print or save the 3 characters (le singe = the monkey, le garçon = the boy, la fille = the girl).
3. Have your child point to the correct body part of their character when it’s called out. 
4. More than 2 “players”? Have one person call out a body part and the other 2 can compete to see who point to the “partie du corps” first!
5. If you have printed the vocabulary sheet, feel free to cut into flashcards and use this as a game.

French phrases to use with this package:

“Touche ______” (insert body part listed on vocab sheet). = Touch ________
pron: “toush”, ex: “Touch le pied” = Touch the foot.

“C’est quoi ça?” (when you’re pointing to a body part and asking that what it is) = What’s this?
pron: “seh kwah sah?”

“C’est ______” (insert body part listed on vocab sheet). = It’s ________
pron: “seh”, ex: “C’est le pied” = It’s the foot.

To make it more challenging for French speakers:

Practice saying ton/ta/tes vs. son/sa/ses. So they either have to touch the body parts of their character OR of themselves, depending on how you say it. 

Example: “Touche tes pieds” (they would touch their own feet) vs. “Touche ses pieds” (they would touch the feet of the character). 
For French learners, don’t worry about this just yet, we will get there in our future sessions! 

Funny French video re: “les parties du corps”:
Here’s a funny little video I thought our participants would enjoy 😉

Scholastics Learning Zone:

  • There’s a perfect book for this week’s theme (and a fun lead into the winter season!): Be sure to look up the book “Le Bonhomme de neige” in our levelled readers program.
    AND if you’re somewhere where there is already snow- building a snow man is an awesome hands-on way to practice “les parties du corps”.
  • Reminder of our username: student, password: reading1
  • Pssst! As Fall participants, you will continue to have access to these books during our break between sessions. What a great way to continue your French practice while you await our return! 🙂


P.s. The image below cannot be linked directly to the book, since the program requires you to login before accessing it. Click the link “Scholastics Learning Zone” above to take you to the login page. Search the book from there. 

Step 4. Les lettres / mots de la semaine: Fun worksheets to practice our letters / words of the week:

Les mots de la semaine: “C’est” = it’s, “Quoi” = what, We’ll be saying this a lot “C’est quoi ça?” = What’s that?

MAKE IT FUN! <- click here to see different ways to complete this task

L’alphabet: For continued alphabet practice!

This week’s focus: A mashup of our favourite counting songs and activities for review, as well as a new quick lesson on measurement using small objects!

Parent & Child Video

Task 1. Let’s measure! On va mesurer!

  1. Ask your child to lie on the floor. Use painters tape, or chalk to mark the length of your child.
  2. Trace your child’s hand on a piece of paper and help them cut it out.
  3. Help them use their paper hand to measure the length of their body.
  4. Continue to measure various items around the house with their hand.
    Ex: How many of their hands does it take to make the length of their bed? How many of their hands makes the length of Mom’s arm? The door? Etc.


French Vocabulary:

    • Ça mesure ____ de mes mains. = This measures _#_ of my hands.
      Pron: “Sah muh-zewr ____ duh may maih”
    • Je mesure ____ de mes mains. = I measure _#_ of my hands.
      Pron: “Juh muh-zewr ____ duh may maih”

Measurement activity:

One of the major math curriculum expectations in JK & SK is for children to learn how to measure with various objects. Example: How many times does this piece of cereal fit the length of this string? etc. 
Complete the activity below for extra measurement practice, or just use it to understand the learning goal, and then take to measuring various objects in your house! (Click the button to download instructions & activity)

Movement Game Practice

I wanted to be sure to leave this movement game here for our last week because it helps practice counting, following French commands, and we get some physical education in there! Don’t have a print? That’s okay! Leave the cards up on the screen and scroll to see which action card you land on.

Want to make it more difficult?

  • Make it an addition game. “Lance le dé” (throw the die) and then “encore!” (again), add the two together, and now this is how many times they need to do the action on the card. 
    Ex: “Deux plus deux égale = quatre” (2 + 2 = 4)
    Pron: “duh plews duh ay-gahl katr”

Step 2. Parent & Child Video

This week’s topic: Le toucher = touch

Make “une boîte mystère”: After watching the parent & child lesson, make your own boîte mystère (mystery box) with a kleenex box, or cut a hold into the bottom of any box. This will allow you to place items in the box, but your child can’t see what they are. They need to guess what’s in the box, using “le toucher” (touch) only.

You can choose your own items, or you can pick and choose from the flashcards I’ve provided below. To make this a French vocabulary exercise, go through each of the cards with your child and practice saying all of the words in French. (Type into google translate app on your phone to listen to the pronunciation)

Now tell them you have placed one of those things in the box, and they need to guess which one! You can repeat this activity, changing the item inside the box, as many times as you like! 

French Vocabulary to use during this activity:

Qu’est-ce qu’il y a dans la boîte? = What is in the box?, Pron: “kess kee-lee-ah daw lah bwat?”
C’est quoi ça? = What is that?, Pron: “seh kwah sah?”
Je pense que c’est… = I think that it’s…, Pron: “juh pawce kuh seh”
Oui! Tu as raison! = Yes! You’re right!, Pron: “Wee tew ah reh-zohw” 
Non, essaie encore! = No, try again!, Pron: “Nohw, eh-say aw-kohr”

Here are some fun ideas for how we can practice this week’s lessons outside.

Graphing: Let’s practice our graphing skills from last week, but this time, let’s take a walk outside and see what we can see! Colour in the item as you come across it on your walk. When you get home, talk about your findings! What did you see the most of?

Sample French Phrases:

“Je vois un _________” = I see a _________,
Pron: “Juh vwah uh _____” 

“Combien de ________ est-ce qu’on a vu?” = How many ____ did we see?,
“Pron: “Cohm-bee-aih duh _____ ess koh nah vew?”


  • Un oiseau = a bird, “uh nwah-zoh”
  • un chat = a cat, “uh shah”
  • un autobus = a bus, “uh noh-toh-bews”
  • un panneau stop = a stop sign, “uh pah-noh stop”
  • un chien = a dog, “uh shee-aih” 
  • un escargot = a snail, “uh ness-cahr-go”
  • un écureuil = a squirrel, “uh nay-cew-ruh-ee”

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 🙂
