Le bistro des animaux kit

Most appropriate for ages 9-11

This is a story about three different animals, a lion, an elephant, and a mouse who, at the beginning of the story, are very proud of their own talents and dislike each other because of their differences. Louis la grenouille reappears in this story. He watches the animals and tries to find a solution to their arguments. He visits his friend, Alice l’Alligator in the bayou, who suggests that they try to get the animals to work together on a common project that they will all be able to enjoy. She suggests that they have the animals build a café. Louis and Alice visit each animal in turn, suggesting that each one help with the building. Each one agrees to help and in the last scene they are all working together on the building although each one does not know that the others are involved until they complete the project. At first they are upset but as each animal explains his/her contribution, they realize how important it is to appreciate rather than dislike one another for their differenc­es. Louis and Alice join the group at the end as they help name the café, and finally all the animals look forward to enjoying it together!

It is a popular play with teachers and students from grade four to grade seven. It is full of emotional content, contains humour, and results in a happy ending with an important moral!

Manigan le géant- Reader

Manigan is a gentle giant and steward of the Earth who uses his bounty to aid those in need. He helps a couple of people who unfortunately take advantage of his kindness and eat up his stores of food. When the giant becomes weak, the couple realize that they have to give back to the one who has given them so much and they nurture Manigan back to health. This tale, which evokes First Nations wisdom, is a parable that reminds us of the need to treat our world with respect, and not just as something to be viewed as a resource for human consumption.

We solve many of the challenges language teachers face.

Learn about some of the challenges Primary School Teachers face when teaching languages.

The Gesture Approach

The AIM is a methodology that supports students by providing strategies and techniques that ensure student language acquisition and a high level of engagement. The Gesture Approach allows students to visualize, hear, say and 'feel' the language simultaneously, and this results in rapid proficiency development.

A Literacy- and Arts-Based Approach

Through the use of story and drama, songs, raps, and dances, students are moving to the language as they create meaning. Scaffolding and cooperative learning strategies help all students - the shy, weak, and strong - to find great support and success.

High-Frequency Vocabulary

One of the most essential aspects of AIM that ensures student success is the high-frequency vocabulary (Pared-Down Language) that threads throughout every aspect of this methodology. AIM is designed such that each word is repeated extensively, allowing students to develop a strong foundation for language proficiency.
