We are having a grand time in school learning about France. Since we’re now singing the Days of the Week in French, I thought it would be fun to read our beloved “Goodnight Moon” (recited every day before chapter reading) in French, and in English – simultaneously, page by page. Also, children hear the book every day, but don’t see the pages. It was a treat to see the illustrations!
My wonderful co-teacher read the pages in English, and I read the pages in French. I know I ‘messed up’ on some words, but the important thing is that children were connecting their favorite book in both languages. They were so excited to participate and shout out the words. It was wonderful!
