Florence started our lesson today with the Bonjour song. Next, we counted in French all the way to 20! Then we sang "If you're happy and you know it" in French and learned the names of some of our body parts. We sang "Clap you're hands," "Stomp your feet," "Shake your legs," and "Wiggle your ears." Finally, we played "Jacques a dit," which is Simon Says in French! We continued to practice identifying our body parts.
