This week I am learning TO COUNT IN CREE!!! YUPEEE!
This is something I really wanted to learn because its something that can be used in every day life. This week I used the Cree FHQTC App to learn the numbers in Cree. This App is extremely helpful as it provides many different features to assist with language learning.
Here are some of the features that assisted me in learning numbers:
I thought it would be hard to learn the numbers but after practising over and over, it is actually quite easy. I decided to create a video of me writing and saying each number. You can watch the video here.
These are the numbers included in the video.
I was so excited that I had learned the numbers 1-10 in Cree that I just had to share with others. I came across this Cree Number Song on youtube and basically listened to it over and over until I was able to sing it….decently at least (I’m not a very good singer, but preschoolers don’t know that, so shhh!). During circle time at my work, I taught them the Cree number song. For actions we used our hands and held up the number of fingers that we were singing. We all has SO much fun!! Unfortunately due to privacy regulations, I can not show a video of us as a group singing the song. I did however get a co-worker to take a small time lapse of myself doing the song so that will have to do!
Thanks for reading! Follow along for more Language Learning!
