Class experience

US Grade Pre-Kindergarten - 1
Beginner Level
This class is taught in English.
Students will earn basic essential French vocabulary and expressions. They will listen and pronounce correctly. Hopefully in six weeks we can learn eighty to a hundred basic words in spoken French(This will vary depending on age, other input from school, and many other factors). 
 They will learn about ten letters of the alphabet (This will vary a lot depending on prior knowledge), the letter names in French, how to form them with correct directionality, and what sound they represent. They will learn about silent letters which are very common in French. They will start to put letters together to form simple syllables such as lo, la, ni, na, ma, and will put them together in words like Lola, Nina, maman. This section will go further with other consonants t, p, r and some vowel digraphs ou as in soup, ai like short e as en said, etc. At this lebvel perfection is not expected but we aim at having students sound out words and learn to recognize and write them as we learn new vocabulary.
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.
I work with many students with ADHD and Dyslexia and some ASD; because this is a language class students' verbal skills need to be age-grade appropriate. Speed of presentation is always adapted to the student.  Parents may sit in.
This is Unit 2 of Kindergarten/Readiness. Students should be able to say/sing the alphabet in French, print most letters legibly, and follow simple instructions (say, read, write, look) and know some basic words (colours, animals) in French
As mentioned above under Resources, excerpts from a number of different books and workbooks will be provided to be copied for class use. Please try to have these printed before class. 
I strongly recommend punching all papers with a three hole punch and keeping them/ using them in a binder or three prong duotang folder. One sided printing is preferable so the student can write on papers in the binder. This avoids constant paper shuffling and loss of work and lost time. Also, after the class is over, you have a ready-made portfolio of work done. This is especially useful for homeschoolers or if you transfer schools.

Students need a microphone and camera and must keep them on. This is an interactive language class so speech, writing, and physical response are all vital. If you hold a page quite close to the camera I can see the student's writing. 

Students need:
* A chair where they can sit comfortably with arms free to move. Support for feet helps, perhaps a footstool.
*A clear table surface with computer *and*room to write.
* Good lighting.
* A pen or superfine marker (Pencil is hard on the hands and invisible onscreen. They can cross out errors.)
* Coloured pencils or markers.
* Copies of the work for the week in their binder. Links from Google docs will be sent after registration. 
We will use the beginning pages of the Ratus et ses Amis workbook (white), phonics lessons from J'apprends a Lire (Editions Caractere), images from Premiere 500 Mots en Francais. some images and vocabulary from French the Easy Way and older text Le Francais Vivant, a wordless pre-writing workbook to stress directionality, and possibly other similar materials. These are all standard texts with normal school content. Millions of people have used these classic materials in the past.
 Because we are only doing a small excerpt from the beginning of each one, I will provide copies online of materials to write on.. Parents should print these before we start class and please put them in a three ring binder or duotang. You will want to keep these later as part of a portfolio.
If you are going to continue through the program throughout the year. you will want to buy the Ratus white workbook and the J'apprends a Lire phonics workbook. Details will be given  after you register.
