Cindy Taber - French

Bonjour et bienvenue à la classe de français!Taber_2

Bonjour! Je m’appelle Mme Taber.

Education: I graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a degree in Education and French, and with a minor in German. I studied at the University of Dijon in France for a quarter, and lived with a French family during that time.

Experience: I have taught foreign language for many years. I have enjoyed working with kids from preschool age up to High School, and even at the Community College level. I have taught at Evergreen Academy for 18 years. I firmly believe that language exposure at an early age helps students to progress quickly in speaking and understanding not only a foreign language, but other cultures as well.

Passions and Interests: My passion is teaching children and helping them to understand the global world through learning the French language, culture, customs and people. My family had a foreign exchange student from Austria live with us for a year when I was in High School. From then on, I have always had an interest in foreign languages and visiting other countries. I  love to travel, and try to get to France whenever I can. My most recent trip to France was last summer! I saw so many historical sights and plan to share what I learned with my students.

I also enjoy reading, gardening, and making hand stamped cards.

Classroom Notes

Bonjour!

We have started out the year seeing what we remember about greetings and adding more vocabulary to our list.

The youngest children will be learning French songs and small units of vocabulary about greetings, numbers, colors, family, and the house.

The lower elementary students are learning how to pronounce words as well as read and spell them too! They are keeping notebooks this year where they write down all of our vocabulary words.  They will bring these home at the end of the year. In the meantime, they will be bringing home worksheets from the units we are working on. They will also learn about some famous Paris monuments.

The upper elementary students will work on increasing their ability to speak, read and write  by reading more French texts and discussing them. They will also learn some grammar concepts like adjective agreement and conjugating “er” verbs. They will have cultural units on French Provinces and French Speaking Countries around the world.

We are looking forward to a great year ahead!
