Guest blog on Dr Jean!!

Yippee!!! I was invited to guest blog for Dr Jean’s blog and she has posted my article on her blog!! Super!

I wrote about translating her songs into French and our class favorite “Tchic et Tchac” (Tooty ta). Songs really are a great conduit for learning a new language, both for children and adults. Hers are catchy and stick fast, and she is a really sweet lady too. She took her time to respond to me and advise me on how to make a post more interesting (pictures, pictures). I’ve got some work to do.

Thank you Dr Jean, here is the post on her blog.




Que dit la météo?

“Que dit la météo?” (what is the weather?) is another song which I created by translating a song by Dr Jean. Her songs are lots of fun and very catchy and the French version is a hit with my students. I use flashcards from La Maternelle de Moustache and will soon transition to a weather wheel also from Moustache.

I have attached my lyric sheet with translation and two videos of the song (one with flashcards and one with the class) as well as the Maternelle de Moustache flashcards that go with the song.
