Are you a parent looking to offer your child all the benefits of a dual-language education? You might feel a little overwhelmed with questions and uncertainties about French-second-language, or FSL, education. Even if you’ve already made the decision to enroll your child in an FSL program, you might be at a loss as to how you can help him or her succeed if you don’t speak French yourself.
CPF NB is here to help!
We have many informative pamphlets and brochures that can help you pick the right program for the right child; and for parents whose children are already studying FSL, we have resources that can help you help your kids. We are primarily, first and foremost, a parent-oriented organization, so we are here for you and your family every step of the way.
CPF Early Childhood Activity Workbook
This workbook is filled with activities that introduce French to English-speaking children.
You will note that we have included a question and answer on each page of the activity book.
By including frequently-asked-question (FAQs), parents will receive information about French-second-language (FSL) education which will allow parents to make informed and confident decisions about enrolling their children in FSL programs. The FAQs are based on a review of the literature by Dr. W. Lazaruk and the activities for preschoolers were developed by an educational consultant to ensure that they are age-appropriate.
