For those of you who would like to know how to support your student's learning in French at home I have posted on my blog the link to the AIM (Accelerated Integration Method) website where you can order a copy of the student DVD for the play we are learning this year.
Simply click on the link, then on the green bar which shows the options for Products and Resources. You then need to click on Student Resources, and scroll down until you find the appropriate STUDENT DVD for your child. This will be the STUDENT DVD for Les trois petits cochons for Grades 5 and 6, and the STUDENT DVD for Comment y aller for Grade 7. If you have a child in both grades, or in Grade 6 who will be continuing next year, you can order the DVD for Comment y aller as it has the vocabulary for Les trois petits cochons as well. The cost of the DVD is $15 and it includes the full vocabulary list with proper pronunciation and gestures. It also has the raps, songs and the play gestured and performed. It does not have the english translations as the program does not rely on translation as a method but on the intuitive acquiring of language through gestures and context. I do check comprehension with them in class, and they can always ask me what a word means anytime through the day.
I hope you all find this helpful. Have a wonderful and blessed Christmas. Joyeux Noel!!!
