Hi, I have four kids (3,5,7,9) all at the local primary school here in France. There are rumours (as yet unconfirmed officially by the school) that the Wednesday half days will soon be ending and I am planning to use those days to give my girls some extra lessons at home, in English. All of them have access to books in English and French at home, but I worry that they are not learning enough about how to read and write in English at school, so I want to use this day off school to help them.
I would love to know if anyone has any advice about how to put this idea into action: do you know of any online teaching resources that would be helpful? Although I’m happy with the idea of doing this, I worry that in practice it may prove more difficult than I anticipate and I certainly don’t want to confuse them more than they seem to be already!
My 7 year old in particular has real problems with sentence construction in English and although she is a very able reader, her spelling is poor and I’m not sure she has a very good understanding of basic English grammar.
Thank you in advance!
