Workshops, info sessions, Pro-D offerings I have presented as a teacher and library coordinator. (As of August 2016, I began working as a district administrator in Surrey - see my other blogs for more current presentations.)
Primary Immersion Streaming Resource
At a workshop Diane J and I presented at DRC, we focussed on some great AV resources Primary Immersion teachers can use in the classroom. Younger kids enjoy singing the same songs over and over, or hearing a funny story more than once. However, AV materials that are borrowed from the District Resource Centre often need to go back all too soon. The solution we presented was the mini-TFO series from Télé-Franco-Ontarienne. The show "Mini-TFO" was originally a weekly TV show that featured short clips of stories, games, songs, word-work and skills aimed at Pre-K and early Primary francophone students. Many of the clips are perfect for French language learners, and because they are available online, they can be watched anytime! Click HERE for notes and links to episodes on the site.
