• Step 2 - Un jour bizarre kit


    • Teacher resources

      This is a fun play containing numerous well-known fairy tale characters all in one story. A girl finds ways to help these characters with their different problems and then wakes up, realizing that it was all just a dream.

      This is an alternate kit to the Comment y aller ?. Written by AIM teacher and workshop facilitator Sylvia Duckworth, this kit is based on an original fun, fantastical play about a young girl who finds herself in an enchanted forest. As she tries to make her way back home, the girl meets a variety of fairy tale characters. In this kit, students are doing more partner/group work. By the end of this kit, most students should be able to complete their own 10-page story extensions entirely in French.

      Je m'appelle Christian- Reader

      This book tells the true story of a young man, Christian, who has spent most of his life at St. Helene's orphanage in Haiti. Christian was born with many physical handicaps and his mother died when he was two years old. At the orphanage, he was surrounded with love and a great deal medical support, and nowadays he is a true inspiration to all who know him. Author Mary Anne Alton did volunteer work at St. Helene's orphanage, and was able to experience true joy in spending time with Christian. Mary Anne is donating all of her royalties to the NPH orphanage St. Hélènes in Haiti. In addition, AIM Language Learning contributes 4% of sales revenues of this book to Doctors Without Borders to help their work in Haiti.
