This 10 week French writing program will have your students writing every day. There are 5 activities for Monday - Friday. This is an easy way to introduce and review writing. Give each student a paragraphe de la semaine folder and they add to it as you give them assignments. On Friday, they turn them in. On Monday, start over with a new theme.
Themes in Set 3:
je n’aime pas manger
un château de sable
Lundi: Je dessine - Students get a drawing page with a writing prompt. This will have them think about the theme for the week. It is the 1st prewriting assignment. Kids love drawing, and their pictures will serve as inspiration!
Mardi: Mon livret de vocabulaire - Each student gets a booklet to explore themed vocabulary. The front page shows the writing prompt and an image. Page 2 has over 80 frequently used French words. Page 3 lists 12 words that go with the theme, and the back page has space for 10 words that students think of or look up in the dictionary. The booklet is a 1 page printable that you can fold in advance. They write their name on the front cover and they can color it.
Mercredi: Vocabulaire - Go back to vocabulary booklets from Tuesday and choose 10 words to include in the rough draft. Words they choose are a combination of words they have chosen and themed vocabulary already written in the booklet. They write down the chosen words on their vocabulary page that says: *Mots de vocabulaire utiles: J’utiliserai ces mots dans mon paragraphe. *
Jeudi: Mon brouillon - Write a rough draft of their paragraph using vocabulary words selected on Wednesday. The brouillon page has a 5 point checklist to evaluate their work before writing the final copy on Friday. This motivates students to look over their work and make corrections.
Vendredi: Ma copie propre - The 5th step in this program is writing the final copy. Students should feel very confident in writing about this theme. The top of the final page has the writing prompt and question words to consider while writing: qui - quoi - quand - où - pourquoi - comment
