About

The #1 .... (film for teaching)

Number One** Not your ordinary endless list - just what's number 1. Just the BEST.

The Red Balloon

This 1956, French, silent, 34 min. film is a revelation. If you haven't seen it, do so! It highlights the simplicity by which children experience the world and tells the tale of a young boy in Paris who falls in love with a red balloon.

It has so many layers and can be used to teach so many things! Students can retell/rewrite the story. It could be produced as a play. It is fantastic for role playing certain scenes. Lots of vocabulary throughout. As the film plays, students can also describe the actions of Pascal.

It is a unique film, like Lamorrisse's other acclaimed film "Crin Blanc" or Bill Mason's "Paddle to the Sea" - they teach children through the eyes and senses/experiences of children.

I'll be showing it throughout the month of June on Teacher's TV. Get it there or on dvd. A must for any educator.
