A gap-fill exercise to practice recognising verbs. I thought this would be a fun activity for my 10/11 years olds who are just starting to learn verbs. It proved to be a huge success. They loved it. They found the translations so funny that and by the end of the class they knew all French 10 idioms off by heart. They went away from the class saying that they wanted to research more French idioms and offered to do it for homework!! Wow!! I wonder what they will come up? Please take the time to comment if you find this worksheet of any use. Your feedback is much appreciated.
Powerpoints for lesson starters. The Spanish idiom, and the pictures appear before the English, to allow pupils to guess. The word document contains some of the idioms from powerpoints but no English - suitable for a quiz. Feedback welcomed.
Intended for my National 5 class to prepare for the writing exam, but suitable for any class learning to write job applications. In the second document, the first page contains instructions for pupils and refers to phrases on the coloured paper. These are the phrases on the same page, which I copy onto coloured paper and cut up. I also cut out all of the Spanish and English phrases on the next pages.
PowerPoint and accompanying workpack designed to encourage pupils to use a variety of complex structures in their spoken and written French. I use it as a revision tool for pupils to use as part of their controlled assessment preparation. Please do let me know if you spot any mistakes.
Print out the cards and laminate them. Pupils work in pairs or small groups and race against each other to form the perfect tense with the cards after reading the infinitive and the subject from the PowerPoint. Good element of competition and really highlights how much (or little!) they actually know. Includes avoir and être verbs and agreement.
Can be easily adapted to suit your requirements too.
