Le sac à surprises
This week will be using le sac à surprises [leuh sak ah seuwr-preez] the bag of surprises with lots of Easter themed items in it. As always, Gill will introduce the vocabulary using The LingoLab’s specially developed flashcards before introducing le sac à surprises [leuh sak ah seuwr-preez] the bag of surprises.
Gill will ask you cache les yeux [cash layz yeuh] hide your eyes, mets la main dans le sac [may lah mahn dohn leuh sak] put your hand in the bag. It’s a great way to reinforce the verbs and body parts that we have learned so far. We have also been concentrating on reinforcing prepositions and you can reinforce dans [dohn] in at home.
Don’t forget to continue to reinforce at home, colours and family vocabulary that we have previously learned throughout the series of classes. You can revisit these classes on your dashboard to recall any vocabulary that you might like to see.
Let’s sing the song Tête, épaules, genoux et pieds [tet ay-pol jeuh-noo ay pee-ay] Head, shoulders, knees and toes.
In last week’s class we sang the song, Tête, épaules, genoux et pieds [tet ay-pol jeuh-noo ay pee-ay] Head, shoulders, knees and toes, it was so much #MakingLanguagesFun singing it with you.
This week we will focus on reinforcing the vocabulary for the song, and also use some adverbs, such as vite [veet] quickly, doucement [doo-sseuh-mohn] slowly and also use vocabulary such as plus vite [pleuw veet] faster. That’s known as a comparative adjective in French grammar, in case you were interested.
Gill will be saying Levez-vous [leuh-vay voo] stand up when she addresses the whole class, more than one person (or also being formal and polite to one person in French). You would say lève-toi [lev-twa] stand up to speak to your child. Saying s’il te plaît [seel-teuh play] please to your child or s’il vous plaît [seel voo play] please to speak to the whole class, more than one person or again, being formal and polite to one person in French.
Let’s play a counting game
It’s always so much #MakingLanguagesFun when you interact on screen with Gill. It’s even better when you can use the skills that you have learned in the class to join in too and play a game at the same time.
We will guess combien d’œufs [com-bee-ahn dueh euh] how many eggs there are dans le panier [leuh pay-nee-yay] in the basket.
Hold the number up to the screen that you think there will be when I ask il y a combien d’œufs dans le panier [ee-lee yah com-bee-ahn deuh euh leuh pah-nee-yay] how many eggs are there in the basket?
I will give you some clues by saying, plus haut [pleuwz oh] higher and plus bas [pleuwh bah] lower than a number. You can change your mind and old another number up you think it is again. It’s a number we have practiced counting to this term entre un et vingt [ohn-treuh un ay vahn] between one and twenty.
We will watch an animated slide-show to reinforce our class vocabulary and counting. Guess Combien de [cohm-bee-ahn deuh] How many of each Easter themed items there are.
Links to additional learning
In France the traditional is that children are brought their Easter eggs by the flying bells that drop les œufs de Pâques [layz euh deuh pak] Easter eggs in the garden. Once they are cachés [cash-ay] hidden, the children then have to find them.
Language Learning Challenge
We have been focusing on counting for a few weeks. Reinforce the learning from this class by filling up the bag with lots of objects and asking your child to Devine combien y a-t-il dans le sac ? [deuh-veen cohm-bee-ahn yah-teel dohn leuh sak] guess how many are there in the bag?
The vocabulary that you need is in Materials section of the class.
Amusez-vous bien, have fun!
Interact with your child as you sing the song and count to twenty.
We have practiced the numbers throughout the terms, you will find them on the YouTube videoclip above and we also counted to 30 in week 10 of Term 2’s classes.
Please send us your finished Easter eggs, we love to see what amazing work you have been doing with The LingoLab's resources.
To say bravo and merci beaucoup for all of your have work, here's a bonus worksheet from this class for you.
