Je vois une chauve-souris brune qui me regarde.”
In our small groups, we have been working on using magnetic pieces to act out this Halloween twist on the familiar story, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you See? The children made the connection to this well-known story immediately. They really enjoy assuming a role, handling the pieces, and placing them on the board when their turns come up. They are excellent dramatizers and patient turn-takers!
Using this activity, we review colours in French and introduce Halloween vocabulary (e.g. citrouille orange, chauve-souris brune, lune jaune, monstre bleu, chat noir, sorcière verte, fantôme blanc, etc.) Through the story’s repetition, we also reinforce and practice saying the French phrases, “Qu’est-ce que tu vois?” (“What do you see?”) and “Je vois un(e) ...” (“I see a ...”).
