I created these readers as a way to get my students reading in the language. I knew they would become frustrated without the glossary to the side. These stories have the added bonus of being familiar, and several are by the French writer Charles Perrault. If you find mistakes please let me know!
I created this game to help students have fun while learning the rooms of a house. Like the TV show 'Whose Line is it Anyway?'' one student plays the role of the host, and must guess which rooms of the house his guests require, based on what they say in French.
This two-page word document breaks down the formation of passé composé into four steps: choosing the auxiliary, conjugating the auxiliary, spelling the past participle correctly, and finally making any necessary agreement. The second page includes a list of common irregular verbs and their past participles.
This is a cause/effect game played using the imperative. The teacher says Commencez, the first student performs his/her command, and other students perform the commands on their slips of paper as they see/hear their cues, which keeps the chain reaction going. My students really enjoy this game.
This PowerPoint includes a chart for the colors and their masculine/feminine/plural forms. Other slides show various cars, and as the word for "car" is feminine, students can practice the feminine versions of several adjectives. I recommend using this PowerPoint with mini white boards.
I have finally organized listening exercises that I have created over the years. These are exercises based on episodes of the children’s animated tv program “L’Ane Trotro” which can be found on YouTube. There are two documents that work in tandem to provide cloze activities for your students. One is a collection of 24 subtitles for the videos, and the other is a collection of these 24 transcripts, adapted for “cloze” activities with the “Moodle” learning platform. These activities require students to fill in the blanks (multiple choice) while listening to the audio. There are exercises for all levels, and after you have made copies, you can easily make changes to meet the needs of your students.
This word document contains 18 grammar charts on two pages. Topics include contractions with "a" & "de" + the definite article, adjectives, quel, tout, ce, possessive adjectives,question words, negation, and pronouns.
These PowerPoints and accompanying lists in word are a review of the meanings of many regular -er, -ir, and -re verbs, as well as irregular verbs, using images. Everything is in alphabetical order. The lists are left blank for students to finish.
