A quick and simple French game for Easter. Roll a die and draw the corresponding part of the Easter bunny! I made it for some primary school children I tutor, but I think lots of secondary students would enjoy it as well. Could be easily adapted for different languages.

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.

French Christmas Song: Les Douze Jours de Noël

French Christmas Song: Les Douze Jours de Noël

Great Christmas song as it consolidates numbers and is a good introduction to ordinal numbers. Powerpoint 1 introduces the vocabulary. Powerpoint 2 accompanies Worksheets 1 and 2. The resources break down the vocabulary by working on numbers then nouns. You can teach each day individually with Powerpoint 1 before adding the full verses with Powerpoint 2. There is also a link to Youtube video to sing along to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yB8dzktiBm4 . There is a PDF file with the song in full as well as a wordsearch. I divide the class into groups with each group ‘owning’ a day or several days depending on the size of the class. You can have a competition between odd numbers and even numbers. I have also in the past had the class find out which nouns are masculine and feminine then split the ‘gifts’ between girls and boys. It can also lead to craft and/or drama activities.

French Halloween lesson - Halloween en français - En quoi tu te déguises?

French Halloween lesson - Halloween en français - En quoi tu te déguises?

A fantastically engaging and spooky Halloween lesson for both Primary and Key stage 3. This lesson compromises introducing Halloween costumes in French and has the objective of being able to say what you are dressing up as for Halloween in French by the end of the lesson. The objective is achieved through engaging games such as choral repetition, beat the teacher, "which is missing?". Once the vocabulary has been practiced with the pupils, it is time for them to get out of their seats and solve a mystery involving the characters to whom they have just been introduced! The mystery involves solving a number of clues by answering questions in French based on familiar vocabulary. The pupils take the first letter of each answer and are left with an anagram of the culprit to the crime. The first pupil/pair/team to rearrange the anagram and find the culprit are the winners. Once the mystery is solved, the pupils learn how to ask and answer what they are dressing up as, for Halloween. They are also encouraged to challenge themselves by giving reasons for their chosen costume by learning a number of Halloween related adjectives. The pupils then consolidate this new vocabulary by undertaking a survey of other pupils in the room to find out their Halloween costumes. Note: The clues in the "Who stole the Queen's lunch?" should be cut up and placed around the room for the pupils to read. Mix these up so that they don't reveal the answer too easily! Included in the survey slide and the "qui est le coupable?" slide are 2 embedded videos with French Halloween songs to create some atmosphere for when the pupils undertake the tasks. Also included in this lesson are Halloween Flashcards, these are to be used as the clues when solving the mystery. It is useful to print these off and lay them out somewhere visible for the pupils when solving the anagram as they include the correct spellings.

Brussels comic strip mural / Bruxelles parcours BD

I believe that reading comic books from francophone countries (in English or French) is a major cultural point. The Brussel comic strip mural walk is amazing but sadly not everyone has the chance to go there. This website offers your students the possibility to check that famous city walk through an interactive map.
