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

French Classroom Objects: Learn and Consolidate

French Classroom Objects: Learn and Consolidate

24 files introducing classroom and school items. The vocabulary is split into 4 groups, introduced through the Powerpoints. There is then a worksheet and a wordsearch for each group of nouns. In each Powerpoint there is a grammar note for relating to indefinite and definite articles and plurals. Each worksheet and wordsearch is accompanied by an answer sheet. There is also a homework sheet for pupils to practice the vocabulary and a sheet for vocabulary notes (again with a completed version). This resource is a good first lesson in French as the vocabulary encompasses many sounds and highlights the differences between the singular and plural. I hope you find this helpful.

GREETINGS AND PERSONAL INFORMATION IN FRENCH

GREETINGS AND PERSONAL INFORMATION IN FRENCH

This is a comprehensive and interactive PPT with 42 slides on greetings and personal information. The first part goes through the various ways of greetings, both formal and informal. The second part looks at how to ask and respond to a range of personal information: name, age, phone number, date of birth, where I live and come from, nationality, job, where you work. It is followed by some practice and a who's who game with pictures of famous people. It is suitable for KS3 students but I also found it very useful for KS4 students in preparation for the role-plays, as they often forget how to ask and respond properly to basic questions.
