A second French lesson on camels...and a bit of Raffi

A followup to the first magazine-based lesson from earlier in the week:

This lesson was a lot simpler than the felt story.  We just read the article about Pato, the camel who lives at the Granby zoo.  Because the story referred to several body parts (Pato's back, leading someone by the nose), I asked the girls to point to particular body parts on the camel illustrations.  And we sang the French equivalent of "Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes." (The little girl in the video is doing the actions to Raffi's version of the song from his "Rise and Shine album--one of the Apprentice's favourite tapes when she was little.)

That's all.
