French for Native Speakers (from Kindergarten to 5th grade).  

Petits Francophones K–1st grade – This class is open to bilingual students. In this class, all activities are conducted in French. It aims to develop a rich verbal language, organized and understandable by the others. The child speaks and is understood through the language. He learns to be attentive to messages addressed to him, to understand and respond appropriately. The child starts the basic acquisition of the alphabet, the sounds and will be introduced to reading and writing in French.

Emphasis is placed on written expression: namely write short varied texts (dialogue, fiction, description, portrait). Children are encouraged to read independently.
