Step 3. This Week’s French Tasks:

We’re practicing rhyming during this week’s french lesson! After watching Mme Amy’s lesson, click to open the rhyming worksheet below. Help your child read out the words and draw a line between the words that rhyme. Need help with pronunciation? Watch this week’s lesson as you complete the sheet. 🙂 I spend some time near the end reading through each word.

For those who are just joining us this spring, I had shared this with our fall and winter 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: We’re counting backwards in this week’s math lesson!

Step 1. Parent & Child Video

This week’s activity:

After watching this week’s lesson, print out or recreate the worksheet below.

Help your child fill in the blank spaces with the correct number. 

When they get to where you would normally say “zéro”, instead say “décollage!” = blast off, pron: “day-koh-lahj” and help them jump high into the air (just like we do in our song Zoom zoom!). 

Something that can help children visualize the numbers as they count backwards is a number line = “une droite numérique” (pron: “ewn drwaht new-may-reek”). Feel free to print out or recreate the one below to help your child practice counting backwards:

Other easy ways to practice counting backwards en français throughout this week:

  • When brushing their teeth 
  • When the oven / microwave is about to beep
  • When putting on shoes/clothes etc. (see if they can put it on before you get to zéro)
  • When they have a few bites left of their meal

This week’s topic:  This week’s science is also a visual arts project! We’re mixing colours and creating dot art = l’art de points.


Step 2. Parent & Child Video

This week’s activity is a visual arts project! After watching the lesson above, get out some paint and practice mixing colours with your child. Then help them to make their own dot art with Q-tips. Don’t have paint? Markers work great for dot art as well! CLICK HERE if you’d like to choose one of our ready-made outlines for this project (but of course your child can choose to draw anything else instead!). 

Some basic French vocabulary to use as you complete this science activity:

  • des points, pron: “day pwaih” = dots
  • un coton-tige, pron: “uh koh-tohw teej” = a Q-tip
  • de la peinture, pron “duh lah paih-tewr” = some paint 
  • les couleurs, pron “lay koo-luhr” = the colours
  • on les mélange, pron “ohw lay may-lawj” = we’re mixing them
  • C’est de quelle couleur?, pron “saih duh kell koo-luhr?” = What colour is this?
  • Qu’est-ce que tu veux dessiner?, pron “kess kuh tew vuh daih-see-nay?” = What would you like to draw? 

Outdoor Activity of the Week:

  • Make an outdoor puzzle:
  • Collect some rocks, sticks, flowers, leaves etc. (refer to cheat sheet for vocabulary and pronunciation)
  • Use sidewalk chalk (de la craie, pron: “duh lah kraih”) to outline each item on the ground.
  • Take your nature items away and then try to match them up to their shapes like a puzzle.

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 🙂
