In the debate over e-book versus paper, we often forget that there is more than one way to spin a story. My students and I have an ongoing narrative involving a growing family of puppets I use with my French as a Second Language classes. Having a tangible manipulative makes the ongoing story immersive and engaging for my young students. Monsieur le Bec, the bird, even stars in one of the storybooks I use with my SK (senior kindergarten) classes!

In honour of Halloween, they are doing a little switcheroo today: Monsieur le Bec (Mr. Beak)  is dressed up as Bébé Ours, and Bébé Ours (Baby Bear) is dressed up as Monsieur le Bec! Friends 4 Eva.

Happy Halloween, everyone!

"I’m a journalist, a teacher and an e-book fiend. I work as a French teacher at a K-3 private school. I use drama, music, puppets, props and all manner of tech in my job, and I love it. I enjoy moving between all the classes and having a relationship with each child in the school. Kids are hilarious, and I enjoy watching them grow and learn. My current device of choice for reading is my Amazon Kindle Touch, but I have owned or used devices by Sony, Kobo, Aluratek and others. I also read on my tablet devices using the Kindle app, and I enjoy synching between them, so that I’m always up to date no matter where I am or what I have with me."
