Une Heure de Conte en Francais

Our French Storytime is a wonderful regular session for children who are just learning French, or who speak it at home a bit. We read stories in both French and English, sing a few songs, and work on some French vocabulary–all in a fun, relaxed setting. This is a great  program for all ages, but especially younger children.

We’re starting again on Friday, Sept. 15 and it’ll run through Nov. 24th–all sessions at 10:30am. No registration is required. Just drop in and be ready to parlez Francais!

French Storytime

French StorytimeHave you been to one of our French Storytimes lately? We’ve been reading stories in French and English, signing songs in both languages, and working on vocabulary. This is the perfect (short) session for young children who might speak some French at home or school, or are trying to learn a few words before school starts. It’s more structured than it used to be, and we always send home a little worksheet to help carry on the idea from the session.

There won’t be any French Storytime during the March Break, so drop in today if you want to see what it’s all about. You don’t have to register…just stop in for our 10:30 session. We hope to see you here!

French StorytimeOur French Storytime is changing a little bit!  We’re excited to get back at it, and it will still be on Friday mornings at 10:30am, but we’re going to be working on a more consistent routine during each session.

Since many of our attendees have low French skills, we’ll do stories in both French and English to allow for more comprehension. We’ll also be adding more songs, and a few new ideas to the mix to make it rewarding and positive.

No registration is required, so feel free to drop in from week to week…..but this time, we’ll be doing very similar things each time, so you won’t feel disoriented when you attend. Une Heure de Conte en Francais is for all ages.
