The students in the Grade 5 class were testing each other on high frequency French words today, using the associated gestures. This is a part of the A.I.M. French program which uses gestures to assist recall of important vocabulary.
Exploring different ways of expressing how you feel!
The French program uses a technique called The Gesture Approach to teach new vocabulary. Every new word has a specific gesture associated with it. Practising these gestures is an important part of French class and is sometimes done using different games. These pictures show a group of students trying to get a classmate to guess which word is being gestured.
The LE1 and LE3 level one students had fun dancing along with a French Disco video, while learning the names of body parts and different actions in French.
