PA For Classroom Practice:
Use explicit activities in French to reinforce phonological awareness:Begin instruction with tasks at the word level and progress gradually to more difficult tasks at the syllable and phoneme levels:
– Words are a series of syllables.
– Syllables are complex phonemes.
Remember that instruction which focuses on segmenting and blending has the greatest impact on the development of early reading skills.

My grade 1 French immersion students
love "le jeu des consonnes". We use it
as part of our Daily 5 activities.

I bought this product (both packages) at an #OMLTA conference a few years ago.
It's an excellent warm-up for my grade 2
French immersion class.

"WatermelonWorks makes learning fun and helps me do better in school."
-- Kevin, Student, age 7
"Our seven year old was in a French Immersion program and was struggling
with reading. A teacher suggested WatermelonWorks, and today he is a
solid "B" student in grade 9 at a
French First Language school. We credit WatermelonWorks' fun approach to
learning for his success."
-- Karen H., Mom (2008)
Thought you all should know my son will graduate grade 12 with honours in a
French first language school tomorrow.
The kid who people said would never make it in a French immersion program.
Watermelonworks™ made it possible!
--Karen H. June 25, 2012
"In using this tool many of the students referred for tutoring have improved in recalling phonemic sounds and gained great confidence
in their reading skills."
-- Elly, HFCS, Teacher
"I am pleased to recommend French Sounds as an instructional tool for use in the French classroom or at home with parents.
I was introduced to Jen and the patented Watermelonworks™ method in 2011. It is a great method for teaching students how to read, write and speak French.
Watermelonworks™ is a platform for language learning that levels the playing field for all students. After 15+ years of research and testing, Jen has created a stellar program that can be used at home or in the classroom. It takes the basic building blocks of language by breaking the language apart into sounds, allowing users to then mix up the phonemes to practice reading, speaking and writing.
My students love using it, as it is fun, motivating and challenging. It also builds confidence and reaps sustainable results. The game style platform is available digitally and in a traditional board game form which supports multiple learning styles.
It is a must for any French Second Language curriculum."
