French Presentation: Family la famille
Slides 1-8: Introduce and practise vocabulary. You could also print these slides off to use as flashcard games or wall displays.
Slide 9: All family members on one slide to consolidate followed by intro of possessive pronouns.
Slide 10: Reading. Short paragraph of Juliette describing who is in her family. You could follow this up with question to your pupils ‘qui est dans ta famille?’ Pupils use Juliette’s paragraph as a model.
Slide 11 Family tree. You could use this for Q&A. eg. ‘Comment s’appelle le père de Juliette?’ ‘Il s’appelle David’.
Slide 12. Extra vocabulary. Taking pupils beyond the immediate family to include aunts and uncles, step-sisters etc. I find that it is too long-winded to teach this in a ‘drilling’ fashion so I would go through it as it is displayed in a table on the IWB and then print off as a reference sheet- particularly useful for pupils with large families.
Slide 13. ‘Les mots volants’ game. This is a chance for pupils to participate and let off a bit of steam. As the words ‘fly’ onto the board they shout them out in English. I love doing this as a whole class as it really builds confidence and enthusiasm but you could shout an individual’s name out in between words or use lollipop sticks to pick a different pupil each time.
Slide 14. ‘Qu’est-ce qui manque?’ game. I usually ask pupils to identify the word that has disappeared and tell me both the French and Englsih equivalent. You could still play as a whole class by letting the group call out the French word as it disappears and you following up with ‘and what does it mean?’
Slide 15. ‘Qui suis-je?’ Reading comprehension with famous families. Answers appear on the click.
Slide 16. Listening grid. This is very simple because most of us have access to excellent listening material but it just gives you a quick to chance to assess aural comprehension at word level. Grt pupils to writr 1-6 on mini whiteboards or in books and you choose six of the words to say, they write down the corresponding letter. You could always increase the level of challenge by including the word in a short sentence.
Slide 17. Noughts and crosses. You could use this as an exit game or as refresher the following lesson. Choose two individuals or play boys v girls. Or teacher v class.
