Event description

Description

DATES:
First Class: July 7th
14th, 21st, 28th, 4th, 11th, 18th (No class Aug. 25th or September 1st)
Last Class: September 8th - Check in. How was your first week of school?
Parent Resource Webinar: Evening, Date TBD

TIMES:
Saturday mornings. 60 minute classes. 10:00-11:00am
This time was chosen based on the survey’s results. Unfortunately we are unable to please everyone, however, we went with the majority’s preference for class.

What does the program consist of?
  • Learning centres, sing-alongs, and activities that help teach basic French vocabulary (similar to our French Parent & Toddler classes, but with activities more suitable for older children [ages 3-4])
  • Crafts, story-time, and circle time (similar to activities done in school- All in French.)
  • A focus on teaching French commands that are frequently used in School (in order to help ease their transition to school)
  • Observation time for parents (Normally you don’t get to witness their participation in a school environment. We wanted to allow you to see this first-hand and so there will be times when you will be asked to simply observe as the children participate in “circle-time”-like activities)
  • Question & Answer with a French Immersion Kindergarten teacher (I have hired a French teacher to come in and answer your questions about what you/your child can expect during the first weeks of school etc. She will also be providing you with a sample daily schedule. This is to ease your mind in terms of any worries/concerns you may have in regards to starting your child in French education)
  • Resources: I will be holding an online webinar (date TBD) that will provide parents with many resources that can be used to help your children practice French at home.
  • Check-in After school has started: You will notice the last day of class actually takes place after the first week of school. This is in order to have a discussion (with both parents and children) about how the first week has gone and to give your little ones a final boost of confidence as they begin their journey as students.
Is this program for children entering French Immersion or French schooling?
Both. Our focus is on the “French education” aspect of beginning school. The English portion of JK/SK Immersion will not be discussed and so this program is suitable for both children entering Immersion and children entering French school as the subjects, themes, and activities will be relevant either way.
