Class Experience

This class is taught in French.
Students will read, write, and speak at an appropriate level for Grade 2 in French. They will enjoy a wide variety of stories and do various reading, writing, drawing, and discussion activities around the story themes. They will develop spelling further and will develop elementary ideas of grammar. They will speak in sentences in French and use good child level vocabulary and structure to express their ideas.
I speak French fluently and have lived in Montreal and area for a long time. I've taught and tutored a large number of students to read in French, using high-quality well-known materials that are aligned with the science of reading. 
I have a BSc, a BA in Honours Math and a double major in Languages and Linguistics, and an MA in Education. I taught in French first-language schools for four years, and have taught a number of classes in French as a second language. I also have extensive experience in teaching and tutoring reading in both English and French, and all of my reading students have succeeded in learning to read fluently.
As most parents do not speak French, no formal homework is assigned. Students should be encouraged to read and write independently and to practice any vocabulary and grammar they have been given in their notebooks or workbooks.

As appropriate and as time permits we will have some verb tenses and vocabulary to take home and repeat for memory.
Text: Ratus Decouvre les Livres, Hatier. The updated version which has fine yellow stripes over the red is preferred. The original version with plain red is perfectly good; these are only a few small differences. Workbook: Ratus Decouvre Les Livres, cahier. These are available online from many sources, used on ebay, new from Renaud Bray. (order as soon as possible since delivery is slow.) I do not work for Amazon or make any money from them; here are the links to see the books Newer version text, preferred: Older version text, still good: Workbook Other materials will be provided online as needed. Learners will also need a notebook and pen. Gel pens are best for smooth writing, Please avoid pencil which is messy, invisible, and slow. We have colouring exercises in the workbook so students should have coloured pencils or markers. Please make sure they always come with their writing materials. The notebook is an important record of progress so let's all try to keep it going. Students need a comfortable chair, with a footrest for short legs if possible, and desk space to write. Camera and microphone are necessary for language interaction.
This is an interactive class and assessment is continuous. Students may be given a certificate of completion on request.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
We discuss wide ranging topics. As students become more able to express themselves, they will say many different things. Openness and tolerance are encouraged. Negative comments about other people are not permitted period and any student who behaves in this way will be removed to a different room. If sensitive topics come up, at this age I will always refer back to parents.
We may read a few extracts from kids' Wikipedia or other resources in French. Again, all efforts will be made to keep things age and grade appropriate.
Parents are asked to remind students not to give out details such as exact birthdays or addresses. We do sometimes talk about home cities/states and climates and time zones, which are interesting and necessary, but nothing that can identify a specific location or person.
Please see the text list under materials below.
