Bonjour! My name is Mrs. Larsen. I am so excited to be at Norterra Canyon teaching the language that I love, French. Our theme for this year is, “At the Restaurant”. My focus is to install the love of French in a fun environment with a hands on approach.
At the K-2nd grade level, we will be learning through modeling, repetition, games and music. My goal is to speak French in the classroom at least 90% of the time. It will be amazing to see how much young minds are able to absorb a new language!
If you would like to encourage language learning and growth at home, there are several YouTube videos/cartoons offered online in French. You can try changing the language settings on movies or DVDs. The Phoenix Library also carries several Picture Dictionaries and a few lower level storybooks.
I am looking forward to getting to know all the students. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have. Email is the best way to contact me since I am only on campus part time.
Our classroom can always use Kleenex, paper towels and disinfectant wipes. We would also gladly accept:
- Two pocket folders (each child should have their own. RED- kindergarten, BLUE- first grade, GREEN—second grade)
- White tissue paper
- Felt (at least 30 pieces of beige, plus black, white, gray, red, brown, green, orange, yellow)
- Small pot/pan (anything for our restaurant theme)
