Christmas / Noël

Here’s one example of a fun beginner-level story series about a little dog named Nestor (many are based on our seasonal celebrations). I am using this series for reading for my primary French Immersion tutoring students this year.

Autumn colours = les couleurs d’automne

In French, a colour word (adjective) sometimes changes spelling when describing a feminine noun, for example:-

A pencil = un crayon (masculine noun / nom masculin)
A leaf = une feuille (feminine noun /nom feminin)

These colour adjectives do NOT change spelling before feminine nouns:-

Un crayon ROUGE / Une feuille ROUGE
Un crayon ROSE / Une feuille ROSE
Un crayon JAUNE / Une feuille JAUNE
Un crayon ORANGE / Une feuille ORANGE

However, the following colour adjectives DO change spelling before feminine nouns:-

Un crayon BRUN / Une feuille BRUNE
Un crayon VERT / Une feuille VERTE
