I'm a French teacher in the USA. I've been teaching levels 1-4 for 27 years. I enjoy making products that students will enjoy reading. I am an early adopter when it comes to technology in the classroom and I have many items available in both digital and print versions.

Digital Escape game - Paris

Escape games can be fun, but if you don't have the kit with locks, they can be tricky to do. Here's a completely digital escape game - no/low prep, you just need to make sure that your students have access to Google Sites! This game is about the city of Paris. It visits the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Conciergerie, Louvre and Arc de Triomphe. Your students will have fun learning about the various historical monuments and attractions while enjoying a competitive game. The game itself is in English, but if you want to use the activity with more advanced French language learners, you can ask them to use the French version of the official websites (just click on the link on each website). Be aware that escape games are meant to be challenging - your students will have to work together, read the clues carefully, and be willing to take risks in order to crack the codes. The teacher's guide includes all of the information and hints you need to help students who get lost along the way.

Extra! French - worksheets to accompany episode 1 - L'arrivée de Sam

(0)
The show Extra! is a thirteen episode series for French language learners. it takes place in a Paris apartment/dormitory and has four main characters - Sam, Nico, Sacha, and Annie. Sam is an American who is trying to learn French as well as to make some new friends. He has a secret that will affect the way he relates to other people. Each episode can stand alone, although it is more interesting to start from the beginning and watch them in order. I usually show these to my second year students during the second semester. They have enough vocabulary to understand most of the dialog by this time. The worksheets provide comprehension checks but also scaffolding resources. In this packet you will find: • vocabulary list with English translations • vocabulary list with no translations - have students fill in while watching • comprehension questions in French • comprehension questions in English • flashcards for the vocabulary list • useful words section with translations and explanations • word search • crossword puzzle • cryptogram - one with and one without a help guide. This particular activity is based upon Sam’s mistakes in speaking French. Have students decode the sentences and then correct his errors. There are many places to view the episodes, youtube has them in both sub-titled and non sub-titled versions. For lower level students, I would suggest the version with French subtitles.
