The aim of the Skoldo French Elementary
course is to support the National Curriculum using the French language. It is an introduction to the French language for 4 - 7 year olds and only includes basic conversational French and vocabulary. It is cross-curricular and designed to appeal to children of all abilities in years R, 1 and 2 and provides activities for practising oral, aural and written French.
There is ample support for non-specialist teachers of French and every effort has been made to ensure that teaching and learning French with Skoldo is a fun and rewarding experience.
Each lesson is divided into three parts:
- Whole class activity based on oral listening
Children listen to auditory instructions on the CD. These activities are simple, self-explanatory and require no written work. They are ideal for a whole class activity keeping all abilities working at the same speed.
- Activites aimed at writers
These are aimed at the children who enjoy a challenge and writing. These worksheets should always be beautifully finished with neat writing.
- Whole class activity not requiring any writing
These activities require little written skills as they are puzzle or maths based. They are ideal for homework or to extend conceptual development.
The book features simple activities and colouring-in exercises that are fully photocopiable, as well as lyrics to the songs.
The accompanying audio material (accessed via MP3 download) includes oral directions for activities and games as well as the songs. Some of which are traditional French favourites such as Sur le pont d'Avignon, others have been written especially for the Skoldo programme. Karaoke versions of each track are also included for class performances!
