FLES Games and Activities.
Irujo, Suzanne, Ed.
A number of activities for teaching foreign language in the elementary school (FLES) are presented. The activities were developed by participants in a FLES teacher training workshop, Project INTERACT, in the Boston area. The first section contains games, thematic units, and other activities specifically related to French language instruction, including cultural activities for immersion students, childhood folklore, beginner games, a fantasy vacation in France, a rapping exercise in French, a unit on the house, and preparations for a trip to Canada. The second section contains activities of similar types for Spanish, including a unit on food, activities for learning the parts of the body, a flag game, a kinship game, an exercise about going to the beach, a short play, and a Latin America geography unit. The final section presents activities for teaching any language, including a unit on the parts of the body, a metric system unit, and a number of classroom games. (MSE)
