HIGH-FREQUENCY BEGINNER FRENCH PRIMARY FRENCH VOCABULARY BEGINNERS FRENCH VOCABULARY CARDS with 99 introductory words and phrases that really get my students going with their French. The words are in these vocabulary groups:
Quelle heure est-il ? (half past)
conversation / questions et réponses
There are 198 cards in total, and although it’s time-consuming, it’s definitely worth the time to laminate the cards, as they’re far sturdier, and last for years! I give my students a vocab workbook too, and this one has 3 differentiated challenges, as well as a full alphabetical French-English list, which we use as a year-round reference resource as well. There are 3 differentiated recall and write challenges in the workbook - my students really benefit from writing out vocab independently, and at their own pace - I often give multiple workbooks over a school year - it’s a really successful way of consolidating vocab, as well as practising spelling. There’s a card template too - students enjoy creating game/quiz cards for each other, applying their knowledge in a different way.
Written Recall Challenge One: students write the English word /phrase from a French prompt, with all the words and phrases grouped together in the same category
Written Recall Challenge Two: with this challenge, students write the words/phrases in French from an English prompt, and again, they’re all group together in the same category
Written Recall Challenge Three: this final challenge ‘switches’ at each question from French to English, and lists words and phrases randomly from each category - I’ve found that this really does encourage my students to think hard about their French vocab.
MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON DIVERTISSEMENT !
