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.
MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON VOYAGE!
