      Teacher resources 

      This is the adapted version of the popular fairy tale, La poule Maboule. It is the perfect way for very young student to begin a new story. They come to the new language with a known context, so that words are predictable. Lots of repetition and humor are found throughout to engage students from the very first day!

      Now primary students in both all types of language classes can get the full benefit of this approach. Both Core and Immersion teachers have been thrilled with Histoires en action ! pour les tout petits 1A, the AIM resource for young beginners. Based on an enchanting folk tale story adapted by Wendy Maxwell, with songs and raps co-written with Matt Maxwell, this kit will entrance and entertain younger students.
