Teaching language through rhyme.
My experience as a foreign language teacher ranges from formal university settings, to fun mommy-and-me classes for as six-month olds. Below is my original curriculum to teaching French for students in Kindergarten - 3rd Grade.
The structure of this curriculum is to teach vocabulary and phrases through music, movement, and play. Each lesson begins with a rhyme, then uses a variety of interactive tools to teach themed vocabulary and phrases to the students. It is designed for both the teacher who has a dedicated French classroom, as well as the traveling teacher who pushes in from room to room. The lesson begins with an introduction to the vocabulary through song, then tackles the vocabulary from different angles such as books, cartoons, wall words, toys, finger play, worksheets, writing, card games, movement, and art projects.
