a little français
Since September I've been speaking French to my girls. For some strange (and happy) reason, the girls love it. Their favorite and first learned words have been, not surprisingly, potty-talk words. We also pray in French before every meal and all the kids are now able to do this. I think it's the repetition that's important.
As a reward, my kids occasionally get to watch Pere Castor cartoons. I love watching them too. They are sweet, and old-fashioned-ish. I'm super picky about what cartoons I'll allow them to watch. (Don't you think most of the modern cartoons are way too sassy for kids?) Pere Castor stories and simple, beautifully written and illustrated. You can also find books to match. I bought them from Amazon France . Is there any one else out there in blogworld who is teaching a foreign language to their kids? Any more ideas or suggestions?
