The primary children have been enjoying French class with Ms. Oana. Today was the second class and we started by listening to the 'Bonjour Song' which you can see and hear online here. After that catchy tune, we sat in a circle and reviewed how to say 'My name is....'
Bonjour, ja m'applle.....
After everyone had a chance to say his or her name we learned the name for family: la famille. We also talked about how to say the following -
mom/mommy - ma mère
dad/daddy - mon père
me - moi
brother - mon frère
sister - ma soeur
grandfather - grand-père
grandmother - grand-mère
Everyone had a chance to draw a picture of his or her own family. It was wonderful to see how excited the children were about using their new French vocabulary to describe their family members!
Since pets are part of many families, we also talked about
dog - mon chien
cat - mon chat
fish - le poisson
Be sure to ask your child about the picture they brought home today!
