PRIMARY FRENCH - 20 FACTS TASK CARDS, RECORDING SHEETS, DISCUSSION ACTIVITY (2)

PRIMARY FRENCH - 20 FACTS TASK CARDS, RECORDING SHEETS, DISCUSSION ACTIVITY (2)

PERFECT FOR INTRODUCING AND EXPLORING FRANCE! FRENCH FASCINATING FACTS TASK CARDS really do help to create a lively language learning environment, and offer a popular alternative to more traditional, teacher-led ’information about France’ lessons. Children can develop their knowledge of FRANCE - and through guided whole-group discussion - their home/host country too, in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, in part independently of the teacher. There is a bonus multi-focus on listening, speaking, pronunciation, reading, writing and spelling, and is a great way of aligning language learning with developing literacy skills in English. This resource comprises the following: 20 FACTS CARDS - there are four facts in each of the following topic groups: ART & ARTISTS, FAMOUS PEOPLE, HISTORY, COUNTRY and LANGUAGE. There are four cards per A4 sheet, making them the perfect size for young learners. The language on each of the cards ranges from fairly basic to more advanced, which challenges and enhances children’s English skills. RECORDING SHEET CHALLENGE LEVEL 1 - there are 2 options: either 2 or 4 fact recording boxes per A4 page. Children read their selected facts, and copy the information in the boxes. Encourage children to be as accurate as possible with their spelling and punctuation, to pay particular attention to the spelling and accents of the FRENCH words that are included, and of course to make sure they are recording the facts in their best handwriting. RECORDING SHEET CHALLENGE LEVEL 2 - there are also 2 options: 2 or 4 fact recording boxes in this challenge level. There is a more open-ended task: responding to the question “What did you learn?”. This requires children to read their fact card, process the information, and then recreate it in their own words, describing the fact in the context of what they have learned. WHOLE-GROUP PRESENTATION/DISCUSSION ACTIVITY, with every fact included in the presentation resource - I’ve found this a really useful means of encouraging and stimulating classroom discussion. Children can reflect on what they may already know about FRANCE, and share it with their peers. Use the facts themselves to prompt discussion about the home/host country, and encourage children to look for lateral information, such as the existence of the Nobel Prize, what its purpose is, and how people win it. SETS 1 & 2 with 40 facts which also include ART & ARTISTS, HISTORY and FAMOUS PEOPLE are also available as a combined pack at the special price of £5.00: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/primary-french-40-facts-task-cards-recording-sheets-discussion-activity-11700399 This pack comprises 5 non-editable files in a zipped format.

French Classroom Activities Bundle

French Classroom Activities Bundle

This is a bundle containing two daily classroom activities and a one week cultural presentation/activity. Items sold individually - $15.00 Bundle Savings of $4.50 (30%) ******************************************** 100 Days of French Class Bell Ringers / Bell Work This is 100 days of the bell ringers that I use in my French II-IV classes. There are two PowerPoints- idiomatic expressions and verbs of the day. Also included is the testing template. Lastly, I have added a few notes of tips and tricks that I have learned from doing this for a few years to help this activity run more smoothly. All the work is already done for you! ******************************************** French Class Daily Activity - Quel temps fait-il? This is an activity that my students and I do to start class every day. No lesson on weather is needed when it is done every day! I have all of these weather cards posted in one of my classroom windows. When the question "Quel temps fait-il?" is asked at the beginning of every class, the designated weather person takes whichever cards the class says and sticks them to the wall. ******************************************** La Francophonie Mondiale - Lesson plans/PowerPoints/Activites on Francophonia This is a lesson I did with my students at the beginning of the year, although it can be done at any time. I did it with levels 1 all the way up to 4, and it was very engaging for every student. It is a 4 day planned out unit on where and why French is spoken throughout the world. Students also internalize the colors red, blue, green, and yellow. The world is broken down into five regions- France, Western Europe, the Americas, Africa, and Asia. Each region has its own PowerPoint (Asia and Africa combined), along with labeling/coloring activities as well. I have provided a step-by-step lesson plan for all four days, as well as a bonus opportunity (or graded activity if you choose to edit it that way) for students to do at the end of the unit. I have also included pictures of the end result of the bonus activity from my classroom. If you want to include videos in/with the PowerPoint presentations, you will need to search online. I have intentionally left them out in order to not infringe on copyright protections.

KS1 / 2 Whole Day Taster Sessions (French)

KS1 / 2 Whole Day Taster Sessions (French)

These resources were used with a Y2 class to do a whole day of French. They are also non-linguist friendly (copy/type words into a google dictionary to hear how they're pronounced). There are 3 sessions which were interspersed with song-singing, accompanied by actions to break up the activities. Tete, epaules, genoux, pieds was a favourite! These sessions were delivered to 50 pupils over the course of a day in a mixed comprehensive school, in a socially and economically deprived area, with 50% of the class being EAL. However, it contains ample content to be easily exploited for a hungrier audience. Each session contains the 'date board' I use as a starter for all of my lessons across KS3 and 4. It's so simple but focuses pupils immediately. Session 1(47 slides) has a cultural focus and will show pupils how many landmarks around the world are within easy reach of the UK. The resource includes pictures and maps as well as driving / flying time from the U.K. to these places. There is scope for an easy extension activity here - pupils couldresearch the French landmarks and present their findings to the rest of the class for example. Session 2 (6 slides) brings French language in, without it being too intense and gives pupils the opportunity to practise basic phrases and French handwriting. Session 3 (11 slides) brings in lots of language, focusing on the basics with support whilst also allowing pupils to push themselves with the extension documents. For session 3, once the starter activity had been completed, I divided the 50 pupils across 8 groups, on 8 tables and we did a carousel activity to progress through the difference phrases. I assigned table leaders to explain their sentence to their group and how the sheet could be used to support them to write sentences about themselves. Each sheet contains extension phrases. Once pupils had grasped how to use the sheets (around 4 tables in for some of them!), they felt confident to manipulate the sentences for themselves and the whole activity became much quicker. I planned to bring the focus back to the French style handwriting if it were the case that pupils finished the activity in order to produce display work. They took a long time to make but went down a treat so it was time well spent. Enjoy!

KS2 Taster Lesson (French)

KS2 Taster Lesson (French)

This is a taster lesson for KS2 pupils in French. It follows the theme of food technology (making croissants) but also covers a little general knowledge as a starter activity, culture and numeracy. It may seem slightly complicated but the language (following a recipe) is really repetitive so pupils will be able to grasp it. I used this over a period of an hour and had French handwriting sheets on standby just in case pupils finished early and wanted to practise writing out the recipe in that particular style, just to add a little extra something to their experience. Lots of pupils wanted to take the handwriting sheets home to write out the recipe in their own time. This was used with Y5 pupils from inner city schools at a mixed, comprehensive secondary school. It took a long time to make so please, enjoy!
