FRENCH CHRISTMAS LESSONS! THERE ARE 396 BEGINNERS FRENCH & ENGLISH VOCABULARY CARDS, 198 WORDS & PHRASES WITH TWO 60-QUESTION QUIZZES!
I think that lessons in the run-up to Christmas provide the perfect opportunity to revisit language we’re learnt earlier in the school year - my beginners French students really enjoy going back over and consolidating the vocab that they were introduced to right at the beginning of their learning. I created various sets of Christmas-themed vocab cards to get them feeling festive - it definitely works! I tend to have several sets all ready, and keep them in learning folders, so that students can choose which vocab groups they want to work on, though often, they like to work with the complete set, so it’s a good idea to have a couple of sets so that there are enough to go round.
The SANTAS have vocabulary in the following word groups:
- Les salutations
- Les jours de la semaine
- Les mois de l’année
- Les quatre saisons de l’année
- Les nombres 0 à 31
- Les couleurs
- Quelques pays du monde
I’ve chosen vocabulary from the following word groups for the SNOWMEN:
- Les animaux (indefinite article, all singular)
- Les parties du corps (definite article, range of singular and plural)
- Le temps
- Les fruits et légumes (definite article)
- Les matières scolaires (definite article)
My students really like to learn independently, and I’ve described a range of games that they particularly enjoy. They love the competitive element of the whole-group quizzes, though the pdf version works really well too for small groups - and if you’re homeschooling.
MERCI BEAUCOUP ET JOYEUX NOËL !
