FRENCH PRIMARY FRENCH TELLING TIME CHALLENGE CARDS - FOCUS ON TWENTY MINUTES TO AND PAST THE HOUR
These 60 challenge cards are perfect for developing French language skills in general, as well as for practicing and revising how to tell time - there are 60 cards, divided into two sets of 30 questions, full answer key and a recording sheet. The cards have a bonus multi-skill focus on listening, speaking, pronunciation, reading and spelling, and really help students develop more independence in their learning, moving away from more teacher-led tasks and activities.
Challenge cards are really versatile too - we use them not only when we’re focusing on the target vocab and structures, but throughout the year as starters and refreshers. The goal is not simply to learn and practise how to tell time in French, but also to enjoy working with language, and to feel confident about doing so. I use these cards not only with my Primary French learners, but also my beginner French learners in high school.
The questions in this set are a straightforward introduction to telling time twenty minutes to and past the hour, and also to working and learning with challenge cards - I generally work with numbers quite quickly with my beginner language students, and move on to challenge card activities as soon as I can, so that they can develop independent and collaborative learning skills. There are two questions: Quelle heure est-il ? with a particular clock face, and students write the response on their recording sheet or in their workbooks. The second question is Vrai ou faux ? and students write either vrai or faux - where the answer is faux, remind students to write the correct time for additional consolidation.
The cards are numbered 1-60 in words, so students should recap those numbers before they work with the task cards. The question card template enables students to apply their knowledge of language and time creatively and practically too - my students really enjoy creating questions for each other!
The resource comprises the following:
Set of 60 question cards, 6 per A4 (8.5 x 11) paper - laminate if possible, they will last for years
2-page answer recording sheet. Best printed double-sided.
2-page answer key, again best printed double-sided, and laminated for longevity. One answer key for each small group is sufficient.
MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON APPRENTISSAGE !
