08) Arthur's brother, Sébastien, starts high school

08) Arthur's brother, Sébastien, starts high school

The Arthur series of comics in French, help our students who are working with Tapis Volant 2 but can be used by anyone. This is number 8 in the series although number 7 is done in 2 different tenses so technically it is number 9 but we stick with 8 as it was completed as number 8 and 7A came later. It demonstrates use of imperfect tense verbs. On the cover page there are comprehension questions. Sadly, I cannot upload the sound file but a teacher can read out the text. We use the this for both listening and reading comprehension. You can white out the words if you want to use it for listening and students then have the comic pictures as support.

La classe - Qui a? - Card Game

La classe - Qui a? - Card Game

This game is a French version of the classic " I have… Who has …? " game, designed to practice the classroom objects. 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!
