This is what I have in store for my students next week. We focused on “le père noël” (santa) and “le sapin” (Christmas tree) this week so now for the much awaited “bonhomme de neige” (snowman).
Yet another translation of a Super simple learning song “I’m a little snowman”. The most exciting part of this lesson is an Olaf worksheet I found on Pinterest posted by The activity mom. The children incessantly sing “Let it go” at recess and I have had to watch Frozen half a dozen times to stay hip in their eyes. I think we are in for a lot of fun.
Here are the lyric sheet with translation, the video and Olaf worksheet:
Le bonhomme de neige
What a fun “comptine”(rhyme) and “jeu de mains”(play with hands) this is. Another favorite with the kids and they have even voted to add to our “spectacle de noël” (Christmas show). The little ones have a hard time with it at the beginning, but the more you repeat it the braver they become and you will sure be glad to have stuck with it.
You will find attached a video from Médiathèques Antony and a translated lyric and coloring sheet of the rhyme.
Un jour dans sa cabane
This is a traditional French “comptine” which is another great beginning song where the children learn the concepts of “petit” (small) and “gros” (fat/big).
I have attached the song/coloring sheet with English translation which can be shared with parents, and a video from Les comptines de Gabriel.
