Spot Santa: Christmas Market in Montreux, Switzerland- Marché de Noël

Spot Santa: Christmas Market in Montreux, Switzerland- Marché de Noël

This is a powerpoint presentation with 58 slides, taking on a visit around the famous Montreux Christmas Market, one of the biggest one in Europe. Each slide got a clear photo taken at a time when it was not crowded by people so you can really get a taste of this Christmas market. Each slide also has a simple sentence describing the photo. Finally, to make sure your students get a little bit extra fun, there are 58 tiny Santas hidden (one on each slide) for them to spot.

French - Christmas facts & fun

French - Christmas facts & fun

This PPT introduces some facts about Christmas in France and can be used in conjunction with the Christmas wordsearch, where a lot of the vocab used is introduced. For the wordsearch, students use a school French dictionary to look up the English Christmas words and find the French words in the grid. The PPT starts by introducing and then practising some facts about Christmas in France, followed by a video of a Christmas market in Mulhouse, Alsace. There is then a Connect 4 game, practising the vocab and facts, followed by an Advent Calendar team game. Instructions are in the notes section of the PPT.

Message magique: devinette de Noël

Message magique: devinette de Noël

These magic message riddles will serve as instant Christmas cards for your students if you print them on card stock. The riddles resemble QR codes until you raise them to eye level and read the “magical messages” from bottom - indicated by a red number - to top. There are four cards to the page. Decades ago, these things took me forever and a day to draw by hand. But then I could legitimately challenge my students to draw a message of their own. Nowadays, I use the computer so they just take forever. However, I’ve lost the moral authority to launch my drawing challenge. But the “wow” moment when a student actually sees the message still makes it worthwhile.

Cadeaux de Noel Vocabulary Hunt

Cadeaux de Noel Vocabulary Hunt

A word exchange activity which requires pupils to translate 20 Christmas gifts from French to English. They attempt it first on their own, then paired up, then they circulate to exchange answers with pupils around the room. This would lead nicely into writing a letter to Father Christmas. I have a template for this available in my Christmas Bundle or on its own- just search in my shop.
