French partitive articles and other forms of DE complete lesson

French partitive articles and other forms of DE complete lesson - DE LA - DE L’ - DU - DES - DE - D’

We all know how difficult it can be for students to know when to use the correct form of DE when they don’t know all of the rules and when they’ve not had enough practice. This is a complete lesson plan that you can even use on a day when you can’t be at school and you have a sub who isn’t a French teacher. This resource includes a 30 minute video lesson.

There is a one page printable study guide with rules and examples to accompany the video lesson, and the best part is the set of 100 numbered practice cards and answer key that will give your students tons of opportunities to practice.

This lesson focuses on using DE or D’ before adjectives that come before the noun, the partitive with masculine, feminine, singular, and plural nouns, using DE or D’ after different forms of negation, using DE after certain verbs when followed by an infinitive, and using DE or D’ with expressions of quantity, and I’ve included a few tricky ones which do not use DE when referring to specific nouns, and that’s mentioned in the video lesson.

I’ve included a set of 100 printable cards that you can cut out, and if you prefer a paperless version I’ve also included a PDF with only one card per page to project as a whole class activity or for students to use on tablets or computers.
