PRIMARY FRENCH - 40 FACTS TASK CARDS, RECORDING SHEETS, DISCUSSION ACTIVITY

PRIMARY FRENCH - 40 FACTS TASK CARDS, RECORDING SHEETS, DISCUSSION ACTIVITY

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 is a combined pack of SETS 1 & 2, and comprises the following: 40 FACTS CARDS - there are four facts in each of the following topic groups: GEOGRAPHY, HISTORY, ART & ARTISTS, FAMOUS PEOPLE, COUNTRY, LANDMARKS, LANGUAGE and FOOD. There are 4 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 ONE - 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 TWO - there are also 2 options: 2 or 4 fact recording boxes in this challenge level. However, 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. SETS 1 & 2 are also available separately if you prefer, each priced at £3.00. This pack comprises 10 non-editable files in a zipped format. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the pack is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only. MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON VOYAGE!

PERFECT FOR INTRODUCING AND EXPLORING FRANCE! FRENCH FASCINATING FACTS TASK CARDS AND DIFFERENTIATED RECORDING SHEETS 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 ONE - there are two options: either two or four fact recording boxes per A4 page. Children read their selected facts, and copy the information in the boxes.

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.

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.

Teach French using cognates (words that are the same in English and French)

Teach French using cognates (words that are the same in English and French)

This is resources is for anyone teaching MFL (French). It consists of a simple poster with the word "silence". I have created a pdf with a range of colourful backgrounds and also a white background for those who are trying to save their coloured ink supplies! By using cognates (words which are the same in English and French), you will be helping the children to become more confident about new language acquisition. Use the poster throughout the day to embed the teaching of French as a natural element of the school day.

French Class Daily Activity - Quel temps fait-il?

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. For the first year students, simply start each class by pointing to the words (with accompanying pictures) as you read them aloud and have them say "oui" or "non". Eventually, they will start saying the words on their own. Finally, they will be able to do the activity by themselves while you can take roll, redirect off-task students, answer an urgent email, etc. By the end of the first semester, your students will be very strong in telling the weather with accuracy in both content and pronunciation. Provided are identical copies - 1 Microsoft Publisher / 1 PDF
