Celebrate Mardi Gras in French class! Beginners of all ages will learn about a traditional New Orleans Mardi Gras through an original Readers Theater story called "Le Mardi Gras de Beauregard." Beauregard is a Cajun alligator from the Louisiana bayou. He travels to the big city with his friends: a crawfish, a frog, and a snake. The text of the script is written in sheltered language for beginnings, using only the present tense. Here's what you'll get in this 16-page download:
1. Readers Theater/Storytelling Tips

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
