SCHEDULE July-August 2017

Saturday Summer Classes in Chevy Chase or Alexandria (kids 2-5 y. old)


Moineaux- Poussins Summer

Mixed Moineaux-Poussins (2-5 years) Sat. 9:30-10:30am -$ 115 - July 8th to August 5th- Chevy Chase

Complete immersion for children between 2 and 5 and half.

When children from different ages are mixed together, they have opportunities to communicate and learn from each other. For the little ones, songs and puppets are great teaching tools. However, it is also beneficial for them to be with older children and try to imitate their behavior... Older children will be given more activities (essentially little written exercices) and will develop social skills in being with younger ones (like sibblings in the family). A mixed group allows the children to improve communication skills and to challenge each other.

Saturdays 9:30- 10:30am
Class starts July 8th and ends August 5th.
Tuition: $115

Class Description (French Maternelle)

- A playful class with activities similar to what children would do in a French maternelle: they learn words and sentences, using them in songs, dance, games, and stories. Crafts, drawings and pre-school/ Kindergarten writing activities will develop their fine motor abilities. For older children, we introduce some writing activities to get started with the French alphabet, and sound/letter recognition in simple words.

- The class is in full immersion and therefore suited for French or English speaking children. At a young age, children are very intuitive and beginners will learn fast. French speaking children will talk and interact more. English speakers will need more time to pronounce the words, however, they will build understanding quickly.

- Typical program:
Greetings, songs and dance
Numbers and letters routine
Meeting our friends (Monsieur nez rouge, Grabouilla la sorcière, les souris, ...)
Interacting on our topic (talk, sing and dance)
Word recognition activity
Story time and little craft/writing project
Au revoir!

- The plus:
+ We recreate an authentic language environment (no flash cards methodology!)
+ Teachers are native speakers (no accent!)
+ Child focused approach

First things we learn:
- Greetings
- Who's who (Je m'appelle/comment tu t'appelles)
- Numbers up to 20 (or more!)
- Animal names
- Food
- Colors and forms
- Anatomy, clothing ...
- Weather
And:
- Daily life activities
- Seasonal themes
- A lot of songs!

In this class, we review vocabulary as well as the essential grammar rules, but we encourage as well the teens to talk to make them feel more comfortable with the language. We also play games and offer fun activities, because we believe young people will learn better if they are having a great experience! We give homework to reinforce the daily activity at home.
