Un jour bizarre kit

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.



Enhance your kit with the following extras:
