Hi this is an observation that i have done this morning, The child will be 4yrs in Jan 2010

child A was in the lounge playing when he pointed to my emotions cushions and said, “At my nursery we call that one rouge” and pointed to the red one.

I said “well-done child A your speaking French; do you speak French at nursery”? He said, “ yes I do”

I then said “can you tell me the color of this one in French and pointed to the blue one he said “bleu”.

I said “well done child A what about this one” pointing to the yellow one he said “Jaune” again I said “well done and what about the green one”? “vert” he said.

Child A was very confident telling me the colors in French

The areas of learning and development are
PSED-self-confidence andself-esteem
CLL-lauguage for communication and linking sounds and letters
I think this is right just wanted to check before i wrote it in his journal.

That sounds great to me!

I have 2 little ones learning French at home, so I collect French children's books and I have a weather chart in French that all the children enjoy using :D
