FLEX Français avec Madame Coombs
The Sharon Public School’s Foreign Language Exploratory Program (FLEX) will introduce your 5th grader to a new world through the study of three languages. During three consecutive ten-week modules, your child will begin to learn French, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish. Each daily 20-minute lesson develops the students’ interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational skills in the target language through songs, games, kinesthetic movement, and interactive real-world activities. There will be opportunities for interested students to practice the new language and culture on their own using on-line games and activities that will be posted here, however there will be no graded homework. Our goal is to provide a safe and fun atmosphere in which all students engage with new languages, develop useful vocabulary and language acquisition skills, and explore different cultures.
The FLEX program allows the students to make an informed choice when deciding on which foreign language to study in middle school, high school, and beyond. I look forward to working with your child and sharing my love of the French language and its many cultures.
