Bonjour à tous,
Ici, à Learn and Play en Anglais nous apprécions toujours quand un élève partage son travail avec nous. Ci-dessus, la photo du travail d’un de mes grands élèves. Pourrais-je simplement rajouter que c’était très agréable de voir à quel point il était fier de me montrer son bus :)

Juste Parlez! – Danielle

P.S. S’il fait beau, nous allons tous nous retrouver au parc à nouveau Jeudi matin comme prévu!

Hello Everyone,

Here at Learn and Play en Anglais it’s always appreciated when a young student shares his or her work with us. This is the work of one of my older preschool students and might I just add that it was lovely to see how proud he was to show me his bus :)

Just Speak! – Danielle

p.s. Weather permitting, we’ll all meet at the park again this Thursday (just like last week) :)

Bonjour à tous,

Au cours de la leçon de la semaine dernière, nous avons utilisé le mot egg (œuf) pour représenter la lettre “E” et nous avons parlé des œufs de dinosaures. Cette semaine, nous allons introduire le mot elephant comme nouveau mot «E». En attendant, pourquoi ne pas pratiquer l’un des sons que la lettre «E» peut faire à l’aide de cette vidéo par Maple Leaf Learning.

Amusez-vous et au plaisir de vous voir jeudi!

Allez Parlez! – Danielle

Hello Everyone,

During last week’s lesson we used the word egg to represent the letter “E” and we had fun talking about dinosaur eggs. This week, we’ll be introducing the word elephant as our new “E” word. In the meantime, why don’t you practice one of the sounds that the letter “E” can make by using this video by Maple Leaf Learning.

Have fun and see you tomorrow!

Bonjour tout le monde!

Nous sommes maintenant à la lettre “E” pour notre atelier d’anglais et nous parlons des œufs. Rappelez-vous, les œufs ne sont pas seulement pour les poulets. Si nous parlons des œufs de canard et, encore plus excitant, de dinosaures! Que diriez-vous de pratiquer un peu l’anglais et un peu de reconnaissance des lettres en même temps?

Je vous souhaite à tous une très heureux vendredi!

Allez Parlez! – Danielle

Hello Everyone!

We’ve moved on to the letter “E” during our atelier d’anglais and so we’re talking about eggs. Remember, eggs are not just for chickens so we’re talking about duck eggs and (even more exciting) dinosaur eggs! How about practicing a little English and a little letter recognition at the same time?

Wishing you all a very happy Friday!

“Six Little Ducks”

Six little ducks that I once knew,

Fat ones, skinny ones, fair ones too,

But the one little duck with the feather on his back,

He led the others with his quack-quack-quack

Quack-quack-quack   Quack-quack-quack

He led the others with his quack-quack-quack

Down to the river they would go,

Wibble, wobble, wibble, wobble, to and fro,

But the one little duck with the feather on his back,

He led the others with his quack-quack-quack

Quack-quack-quack   Quack-quack-quack

He led the others with his quack-quack-quack

Home from the river they would come,

Wibble, wobble, wibble,wobble, ho-hum-hum,

But the one little duck with the feather on his back,

He led the others with his quack-quack-quack,

Quack-quack-quack   Quack-quack-quack

He led the others with his quack-quack-quack

Six little ducks that I once knew,

Fat ones, skinny ones, fair ones too,

But the one little duck with the feather on his back,

He led the others with his quack-quack-quack

Quack-quack-quack  Quack-quack-quack

He led the others with his quack-quack-quack 

ducks have feathers

draw and cut out your feathers
draw and cut out your feathers
make long cuts all along both sides of your feathers

Fluff the cuts upwards

Hello Everyone,

I’ve been singing a new song called “Six Little Ducks” with our youngest group of students. There’s been a lot of “quacking” going on and I thought that it might be fun for the little ones to make a feather of their own to use while they sing. Have fun and see you soon!

Bonjour à tous,

Je chante une nouvelle chanson intitulée “Six Little Ducks” (6 petits canards) avec notre plus jeune groupe d’étudiants. Il y a eu beaucoup de “couin-couin” et j’ai pensé que cela pourrait être amusant pour les tout-petits de faire une plume à utiliser pendant qu’ils chantent. Amusez-vous bien et à bientôt.

Allez Parlez! – Danielle
