Bonjour à tous,

Je sens que l’été arrive ici à La Ciotat et nous allons célébrer cela en chantant une nouvelle chanson pour accueillir l’été indiene. Cette chanson ne sera pas seulement enseigner à vos enfants pour apprendre à compter de un à dix, mais également pour leur enseigner quelques phrases utiles.

J’ai également inclus deux courtes vidéos de Hoople Kidz et Muffin Songs qui dépeignent deux versions de notre chanson des 10 Little Indians (10 petits indiens).

Gobo et moi espérons que vous aimerez chanter avec nous!

Rendez-vous Jeudi!

Just Speak,

Danielle

Hello Everyone,

It feels like summer has arrived over here in La Ciotat and we’re celebrating by singing a new song that will welcome an Indian summer. This song will not only teach your children how to count from one to ten but it will also teach them some directional phrases too. If you don’t recognize the directional phrase part of the song it’s because I made it up :)

I’ve also included two short videos from Hoopla Kidz and Muffin Songs that portray two versions of our 10 Little Indians song. Gobo and I sure hope that you enjoy singing along!

See you all on Thursday!

Just Speak,

Danielle from Learn and Play en Anglais

Bonjour à tous,

La semaine dernière, pour notre thème All About Me, nous avons parlé de la famille. Nous avons rencontré la mère de Gobo (mom/mommy), son père (dad/daddy), sa sœur (sister) et son petit frère (baby brother). Cette semaine, nous allons continuer notre thème avec une nouvelle chanson. Allez-y et chantez cette petite chanson avec votre enfant afin de préparer la classe de cette semaine.

Merci à Muffin Songs pour cette vidéo.

Passez une bonne journée et n’oubliez pas – Just Speak! – Danielle

Hello Everyone,

Last week, for our All About Me theme, we spoke a little about family. We met Gobo’s mom (mommy), dad (daddy), sister and baby brother. This week we’ll be extending our theme with a new song. Go ahead and sing this cute little song with your child in preparation for our class later on this week.

Thank you to Muffin Songs for our video.

Have a great day and remember – Just Speak! – Danielle

“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 

It’s raining, it’s pouring

Bonjour tout le monde!

Pouvez-vous croire qu’il va encore pleuvoir? Eh bien, sachant qu’il peut être ennuyeux d’être coincé à l’intérieur lorsque vos enfants n’ont pas l’école le mercredi, pourquoi ne pas passer un peu de temps à parler des nuages ​​en chantant It’s Raining, It’s Pouring? Dans cette vidéo, nous avons le plaisir d’écouter une belle version du duo Andrew et Polly. N’ont-ils pas fait un excellent travail de tourner un jour de pluie en un amusement?

Le petit nuage de pluie que vous voyez ci-dessus est quelque chose que j´ai fait cet après-midi, tout en travaillant à la maison. Je suis impatiente de l’essayer demain avec mes deux petits lutins préférés.

Aller On Parle! – Danielle

Hello Everyone!

Can you believe that it’s expected to rain again? Well, as much as it can be boring to be stuck indoors when you haven’t got school on a Wednesday, why not spend some time talking about clouds and singing “It’s Raining, It’s Pouring?” . In this video we have the pleasure of listening to a lovely version by the duo Andrew and Polly. Don’t they do a great job of turning a rainy day into a fun one?

The little rain cloud that you see above is something that I came up with this afternoon, while working at home. I’m looking forward to trying it out tomorrow with my two favorite little helpers.

It’s Raining, It’s Pouring

It’s raining, it’s pouring!
The old man is snoring!
He went to bed,
and he bumped his head,
And he couldn’t get up in the morning.

Just Speak! – Danielle

good night!

good night, count sheep
good night, count sheep
good night
good night

Bonjour tout le monde!

Cette petite chanson, que même les enfants les plus âgés aiment, peut être utilisée de plusieures manières. Non seulement vous pouvez là chanter quand vous et votre enfant mettez Doudou au lit, mais aussi pour le calmer. Les personnes derrière cette chanson sont DreamEnglishKids et ils ont un certain nombre de chansons sur YouTube pour faire chanter en anglais à la maison, à la fois de manière amusante et facile.

Aller On Parle! – Danielle

Hello Everyone!

This  little song, which even older children love, goes a long way. Not only can you sing it while you and your child put their teddy bears to bed, but it also might help calm down your little one in the process. The people behind this song are DreamEnglishKids and they have a number of songs on YouTube that are bound to make singing in English both fun and easy at home.

new class/nouvelle classe

...

Bonjour à tous,

Je suis heureuse de vous annoncer que notre nouvelle classe, pour les enfants de 4 ans et plus, a déjà eu lieu pour la première fois. Je pense que je peux parler pour tout le monde quand je dis que nous avons tous eu plaisir à chanter et danser sur nos nouvelles chansons. J’ai décidé d’ajouter une toute nouvelle gamme de chansons optimistes avec beaucoup de mouvements du corps afin de garder notre classe vivante et amusante.

Nous espérons que vous vous joindrez à nous la prochaine fois, mais pour l’instant je vous laisse avec cette chanson de Pancake Manor, appelée Move Your Legs and Arms. N’est-ce pas le moyen idéal pour garder l’énergie de vos enfants après une longue journée?

Aller On Parle! – Danielle

Hello Everyone,

I’m happy to tell you that our new class, for children ages 4 and up, has already met for the first time. I think that I can speak for everyone when I say that we all had fun singing and dancing to our new songs.  I’ve decided to add a whole new range of upbeat songs with a lot of body movements in order to keep our class lively and fun.

Hopefully you’ll join us next time but for now I’ll leave you with this song from Pancake Manor, called Move Your Legs and Arms. Isn’t this the perfect way to get your kids’ energy up after a long day?

Just speak! – Danielle

Va t’en – Go away!

Maintenant, l’alligator s’est transformé en un grand monstre vert et cette semaine nous allons tous chanter notre nouvelle chanson “Va t’en!”. Venez au cours pour aider notre marionnette Gobo à chanter cette chanson et entrainez vous ici.

So the alligator has turned into a big green monster and this week we are all going to sing our new song asking him to “Go away!” Come to class to help our puppet Gobo sing this song and practice singing it yourself from here.

Just speak!

Danielle
