French Immersion Links For Teachers and Parents

If you are a parent of a child in French Immersion, click on the links to the left or above. 


The text below is for teachers who may find this site useful.

It can be hard to find access to French Immersion resources so when I discovered Symbaloo, I was very excited to have access to French Immersion teachers' bookmarks organized by theme or activity. Symbaloo is an online bookmarking site which allows teachers to create an account and then save "webmixes" of bookmarks organized by theme.

My own personal Symbaloo is organized by subject. For example, I have a science webmix where I save bookmarks related to my grade four science program. I also save other webmixes which have been made "public" and are found by searching the Symbaloo site. Here are a few public webmixes that I have found.


Primary French songs.

A mix of abc and 123 plus other useful songs. Most of the links are Youtube links that the author of this site converted to "safe" links using Safeshare TV. (safeshare.tv) By pasting a YouTube link into Safeshare, you create a "safe" link which doesn't contain ads or those pesky "suggestions" on the right of the screen.
