FRENCH VOCABULARY CARDS #1

FRENCH VOCABULARY CARDS #1

495 introductory words and phrases, ideal for beginners French, which always give my students a real flying start - there are 990 matching French and English cards, featuring vocabulary in the following groups: **- Les salutations Les jours de la semaine Les mois et les saisons de l’année Les nombres 0-100 Ma famille Les animaux Les matières scolaires Les fruits et légumes Les couleurs Les parties du corps Le temps Les pays Quelle heure est-il? (o’clock/half past) Les adjectifs La nourriture et les boissons Verbes français En ville Mots fréquents Le français pour la salle de classe Questions et réponses Conversation** There are five sets, each with 99 words and phrases (198 vocabulary cards). Each set also has an 18-page reference, recall and write workbook, with 3 differentiated challenges in each, as well as a full French-English alphabetical reference list, which is great as a year-round reference resource, not only when we’re working on these specific vocabulary groups. My students really enjoy applying and practising their French by creating game/quiz cards for each other, which is an additional way of consolidating vocab. I’ve found the best way to help students really learn their vocab is to allow them frequent and regular opportunities to work and learn independently with the cards and workbooks - not only when we’re focusing on these specific vocab groups, but throughout the whole school year - even more advanced students enjoy going ‘back to the start’! You don’t have to use all the cards at once - simply choose the vocab you want to focus on - the sets are really versatile - I use them for directed learning time, free-choice activity, homework, revision/holiday work and cover lessons for example. There are ten non-editable files in a zipped format. My resource is copyright, and can’t be shared with anyone, in any way - for wider departmental use, please purchase the whole-school license - colleagues further afield must purchase their own resource. I’ve explained copyright etc in my Terms of Use, which I’ve included here - please read them. Merci beaucoup, bon apprentissage et bon divertissement !

La classe - A quoi ca sert? - Card Game

La classe - A quoi ca sert? - Card Game

This game is a French version of the classic " I have… Who has …? " game, designed to practice the classroom objects and what we use them for (verbs like write, read, colour, paint, cut, erase etc). This is an easy-to-play game and a great way to practice essential language concepts with the whole class. As students match up the answers on their cards with questions on other students’ cards, they get valuable practice with vocabulary, as well as reading and listening skills. Directions: Cut out the cards along the dotted line and laminate. For bigger classes, you might want to print several copies of each set. Give out all the cards in the set to the students. It is important to use all the cards. Choose a student to go first. I usually do that by a counting rhyme. Have the selected student read the question at the bottom of the card aloud and then put the card down. The student who has the card with the answer then reads that answer aloud. This student will then read the question at the bottom of their card and put the card down. Play continues in this fashion until all of the cards have been played. The game will end with the same student who started play. Every card in the set is connected to a card before it and a card after it. To keep the game moving at a quick pace, all students need to pay attention to every question that has been asked. I tell my younger students that this is a magic game and that the magic only works if you pay attention, which is actually true. The magic happens in the end, when the question on the last card actually matches the answer on the very first card. Enjoy!
