Puzzles and activities about L’été dernier - practising perfect tense and holiday related vocabulary

Puzzles and activities about L’été dernier - practising perfect tense and holiday related vocabulary

This Power point has 4 activities on it: a) Match the starts and ends of words to practise vocabulary related to holidays. (answers included) b) Work out the past tense sentences about holidays from the number of letters in each word of the phrase. (This requires students to be very familiar with Je suis allé / Je suis parti etc.) c) Using mini white boards, pupils provide the verb for various sentence endings. d) Using mini white boards, pupils have the verbs and provide the endings (similar verbs as above.) I have used this many times and it works well. There is enough material here for at least one hour, or the activities work well as 4 separate starters for different, consecutive lessons. Any feedback most welcome!

Series of lessons (4-6 hours) on perfect tense / holidays / vacances - ppts, puzzles, worksheets KS3

Series of lessons (4-6 hours) on perfect tense / holidays / vacances - ppts, puzzles, worksheets KS3

This is a series of lessons (4-6 hours) about ‘Vacances’ and the perfect tense - I’ve used with Year 8 but could do Year 9 too and elements could be used for KS4 too as a starting point / for revision. The resources are: Short Q / A conversation to be used for speaking practice - each slide has more gaps and fewer words. A longer version of the previous conversation, this time with model answers - MWB activity / gap-fill of verbs / instructions for a ‘Consequences’ type game. A copy of the questions from resource 2 in Word format for students. A vocabulary memory game, followed by a paragraph in the past tense describing a holiday in the past tense - revising and adding to the vocab / structures above. This also becomes gapped so the students have to remember / work out key details of the paragraph. Past tense sentences like the ones above in wingdings so students have to crack the code. Answers included. NB - underneath the title is the same phrase in wingdings as the clue - not all letters are used so they have to work out verbs etc using prior knowledge. Also, note - 2 crosses (one is slightly 3D) and 2 flags (one has a pointy end.) And any sybols are not coded, otherwise it gets very confused. Words in pictures - students look up a series of pictures, find the first letter in French and spell a word. (Eg Pomme / Lunettes / Arc en ciel / Glace / Espagne - spells Plage.) All answers connected with holidays, although pictures not. I have used all these on many occasions with Year 8 clases of all abilities and have found them to be motivating and effective for helping students to learn and manipulate the perfect tense and Holiday’related vocabulary. The Powerpoints all have instructions for use on the slides.
