Pour Nos Petits Manitobains (For Our Little Manitobans): Exposure Package for Grade 3. Conversational French Program.
Saiko, Evelyne, Ed.; Sotiriadis, Caterina, Ed.
This primary "exposure package" is intended for the use of grade 3 teachers of English-speaking children who received French-as-a-Second-Language instruction in a non-immersion context. The aims of this French program are to: (1) expose the child to the French language, (2) foster a positive attitude toward French, and (3) develop awareness of French culture. The focus is on making the learning experience a happy one for the child. Each month of the year is an instructional unit in itself and contains activities appropriate for that month. Preliminary preparation for teaching the courses is discussed, and strategies for teaching a song, a comptine (a nursery rhyme or verse), and a game are described. Sample lesson plans for grade 3 are drawn, and each month's theme is presented with class activities, visual aids, and relevant vocabulary. (DJD)
