FIF FIN

French is Fun – Fin (The End/Last Lesson)

BSCS Students- I have had so much fun with you in our French classes! Merci for making it such a great experience for me, and I’m so glad you also had fun learning French!!

What Did We Learn?

Every week, we learned a bit of culture and a bit of language, and always sang a song or two! All sections went over basic vocabulary, like the French alphabet, numbers 1-20, and greetings.

The K-2 class focused on “Mon Alphabet” – their alphabet book. They also got a mini-lesson based on what the theme was that week. (Click here if you want to finish your alphabet book at home!)

The 3rd-5th and the Middle School classes learned a whole lot of French and culture, including:

Greetings, Paris, Sports, Family, a Student’s Life in France, Other French-speaking Countries, French Food, Animals, School Vocabulary, Clothes, Colors, Art, and more.

Here are some of our favorite songs from a website resource used in many classes:

Bonjour!                 Dix Petites Fleurs              Bonjour Madame

And other games and activities (a great site to explore for language-learning fun).

I hope you keep having fun learning French. Explore this site for more resources. À bientôt!
