Bilingual Language Activity: Autumn

We have been learning about autumn this month in our nature curriculum. I always try to add some language learning into whatever we are doing. I previously wrote an article about using Arabic language resources to learn about autumn, so I thought it would be good to show you how we have incorporated Turkish language learning into our homeschool too. 

We often use arts and crafts to aid language learning. Not only is it fun, it also aids memorisation and keeps children interested in the task. We made posters of things that remind us of autumn and used these to help us talk about the season in Turkish. Creating a poster is a great visual aid children can look at and display.

I set up the table with sheets of A3 paper and coloured pens and told the children to draw all the things that remind them of autumn.

Once they had finished their drawings, we then spoke about them using Turkish words and phrases. We wrote the phrases on the picture.

This is R's poster.

D created this one.
