Just wanted to say that since I started using your material and ideas 3 or 4 years ago, the kids who started with me with stories 1-10 are now really enjoying your stories for special days, especially (and I have to admit, to my surprise!) the songs. Although it is still very much summer here, the kids loved the groundhog story, and ADORE the song!
This morning even the 7-8 year olds were hopping round like bunnies to the Easter bunny song. A week or so ago I thought it was going to be impossible to teach them ALL the prepositions from the Easter story, but they know most of them already! Inge Willems, Ingles Brincando, Brazil
They love it! There is just so much to talk about in the pictures
I have done your Christmas story with all my groups this year from CP to 6ème (ages 6 to 11) and they loved it! There is just so much to talk about in all the pictures. The rhyming story has been great for getting the older ones to read out loud and to present the story themselves. I just love it when their reading starts to come together and they stop reading as if they are reading French - and then their accent just comes right! Vicki Logeais, France
