On the Threshold

Working with young children, I get to see them exploring with words and with the letters that make up words. Using magnetic letters, or foam letters, children practise the words they have been introduced to in class – in particular the French words and sounds that they have been introduced to.

Often the next step is writing these words using paper and pencil – and later on using them to write phrases and sentences.

In kindergarten, the children are on the threshold of expressing themselves in the language they have been immersed in. It is exciting to see their development.

What exciting thresholds do you encounter in your everyday life?

  1. What a great way to teach the kids Colline. I had fun teaching mine like that as well and they even still have their puzzles and letters. They even had ones like this that was made for bathtime. They could never wait for bathtime or wanted to get out. LOL!


  2. This is an inspiring take on for the threshold, Colline! To understand how young kids learn may help adults learn a little better 🙂
