“La chenille qui fait des trous”… c’est la semaine prochaine!!
This morning, we had some more fun with “Six petits canards.” In Jen and Rachel’s class, Jatin, Kaitlyn, Lucy, Hannah and Navin had a turn at being the lead duck and wearing “les plumes.” In Pat and Arleen’s class, Charlotte, Trevor, and Julia each had a turn. This was the last week of acting it out. They were so enthusiastic, acting it out, and helping me to sing some of the words. Très bien, mes amis!
I then read them the story, “La chenille qui fait des trous.” Next week, the morning classes will get to watch the extended day kids perform during their morning French time. So, to make sure that they knew the story, we read “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” in French. They are so attentive and such great listeners. They might even now remember that la chenille is the caterpillar and le papillon is the butterfly.
We also did some review of numbers. I showed them various pictures and asked them, “Combien de…?” They had to figure out how many of each item was in the picture. The older children definitely know their numbers and the younger ones are starting to catch on. Oh, the things we have to look forward to next year!
In the afternoon, we had another dress rehearsal. We still need to work on volume, so I hope you bring your good listening ears next week. They did a great job remembering where they’re supposed to be and were very focused on their parts. I am so impressed with their hard work. C’est fantastique!
We’ll have another practice next Monday afternoon. I think we are all looking forward to the big day. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
Merci et à la prochaine…
