NO CLASS Monday February 18, 2019 in honor of Presidents Day
CHILDREN – LES COCOS – 1-2 YEARS
Monday Teacher: Blandine
Wednesday and Saturday Teacher: Bethany
At the Alliance Française de Denver, we enhance children’s natural ability to learn a language by providing a structured routine that is both dynamic and interactive. Young children will enjoy learning French through games, songs, storytelling, sensory experiences, and various other activities. Parents of 1 to 2 year olds are welcome to attend and share in the joys of discovering this beautiful language with their child.
Accompanied by their parents or caregivers, your toddlers get exposure to the French language, for the first or second year, through nursery rhymes, games, crafts, and flash cards. Each class is structured around a beginning routine, a theme of the day with its pertaining vocabulary, and a closing routine. The class opens with a traditional French song, where everyone sings. For the theme of the day, the Cocos are encouraged to recognize colors and sounds. They learn vocabulary while moving around the room, touching images, posters, or participating in simple craft-projects. This class emphasizes on oral comprehension, tactile experience, and some verbal expression—all in French!
