FRENCH CONJUGATION - FRENCH REGULAR AND IRREGULAR -RE VERBS IMPERFECT TENSE WORKBOOK - 25 high-frequency French -re verbs, 10-page workbook, 150 conjugations, 3 differentiated challenges, 6-page answer key booklet
I’ve used these quick conjugation workbooks in my French classes for a very long time. My students find them really useful for both practice and revision across the whole school year - even my more advanced students benefit from, and enjoy, the opportunity to go ‘back to the beginning’!
This workbook focuses on 25 high-frequency regular and irregular French -RE verbs in the imperfect tense, with 150 ‘quick’ conjugations. I use them in a range of learning contexts, such as independent work either in class time or at home, holiday refresher work, or individual activities for cover/sub lessons. My students like to have several opportunities to work through the workbook, a couple of times a semester across a whole school year. This helps them to map progress in a very clear and structured way. The answer key is really essential - it gives students an additional opportunity to review their conjugations, it really gives them independence in their learning, it’s a great time-saver for us teachers - and they really do enjoy ‘marking’ their own and each other’s work!
The workbook has the following structure:
Two alphabetical verb reference lists: FRENCH-ENGLISH and ENGLISH-FRENCH.
Three conjugation challenges, each with 50 individual conjugations:
CHALLENGE 1: each verb conjugated in FRENCH across a range of pronouns,
with students writing the corresponding ENGLISH verb conjugation.
CHALLENGE 2: gives the infinitive of each verb in FRENCH, specifying the target
pronoun. Students write the corresponding verb conjugation in FRENCH.
CHALLENGE 3: students write the corresponding FRENCH verb conjugation, and
its infinitive, from an ENGLISH prompt.
- NOTES & NEXT STEPS page, which encourages students to think about how their understanding of FRENCH conjugation works, what progress they have made, what their targets for improvement might realistically be, and what they might reasonably do in order to meet those targets. We sometimes do this together as a whole-group discussion, which works well too.
MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BONNE CONJUGAISON !
