<p>This is a good one to engage the pupils by relating it to something they know a lot about…all that time watching episode after episode can finally be described as educational! I have used this at KS3 to teach Variation & Classification as well as KS4 for lower ability. Includes a reference sheet to show the family tree and a question sheet to answer in class or as a homework activity.</p>
This stuff went down really well with my Y9s (middle ability). They'd learnt how to do regular avoir verbs in the perfect tense and I wanted to move them on to use some irregular verbs.
The starter is matching the infinitives, past participles & English meaning of some irregular verbs, then I worked through the activities on the Dejeuner du Matin powerpoint. I'd say it would take 2-3 lessons to get everything done, depending how much time you spend on discussion and pronunciation practice.
A brochure in French for Hogwarts School - my Y11s went nuts over this, they're all big Harry Potter fans, and its fame spread so I ended up with Y7s asking if they could see it too (I suspect a lot of them thought it was really from Hogwarts, bless them).
You could use this for a reading comprehension, gapfill, speaking activity - anything really.
These are from the old spec AQA GCSE papers, but they're still of use for revision & exam practice. I&'ve taken all of the questions from the last 3 years&'; reading, writing é speaking papers and put them into booklets by topic - I use them as ongoing homework or classwork with my GCSE groups as we're going through the key topics. Hope they&'re useful to other people as well!
Fruit Bingo. Great for practicing listening skills or for practicing fruit vocabulary in any language. This set includes 30 color bingo game boards and a teacher’s master board. Whole class activity or small groups - students practice listening skills and reviewing vocab. Perfect for a group of fast finishers or for a substitute lesson.
Octopus on Guard! <br />
I have created this EDITABLE Octopus On Guard Set so that you can adapt it to fit YOUR curriculum and vocabulary lists! <br />
How to Play:<br />
The Octopus is guarding her treasure and students must “pop the bubbles” in the way!<br />
* The teacher can type (or write) the vocabulary words into the game board in advance and make enough photocopies for the class.<br />
* Students pair up and are armed with a marker (or highlighter or colored pencil, etc!). <br />
* The teacher calls out the vocabulary words in English and the students race each other to find the correct translation in Spanish. <br />
When the student finds the correct word, they “pop the bubble” by coloring it in. Whoever fins the correct conjugation first, earns a point! (Students can keep track of their points right on their game boards.) The student with the most points at the end wins!<br />
“Octopus on Guard” is a great review game and motivator. This game can go quickly! It’s a great warm up activity or closer at the end of a lesson. You can laminate these and use them over and over again throughout the year! You can also project these on your overhead for a game of “matamoscas!”<br />
What teachers are saying:<br />
"This is a great little game, easy to edit and use--I appreciate the multiple game pages with different numbers of bubbles. It makes it easy for a more focused game on just a few vocab words, or a broader review with lots of words. Thanks!"
Brainwreck is a way to practice vocabulary in an exciting and dynamic way! Just add vocabulary from your current unit, print the game, and you’re ready to play. Brainwreck really gets students to remember the vocabulary - it requires students to use kinesthetic, visual, written, verbal, and non-linguistic representations to describe their vocabulary words, and by the end of the game, your students will know their vocab backwards and forwards!<br />
How can I use it?:<br />
-as a fun review for students who have seen the content before<br />
-at the end of a lesson to have learners practice with new vocabulary<br />
-as a learning station or learning center<br />
Who is it for?:<br />
-Students in Grades K-12 <br />
-World Language students <br />
-ESL, ELL, ELD students<br />
-English and Language Arts students studying vocabulary<br />
At the end of the game, students will be able to:<br />
-identify and use vocabulary from their current unit of study<br />
-4 pages of content<br />
-detailed instructions and ideas for use<br />
-number dice<br />
-colorful gameboard<br />
This map is great for students to practice directions.<br />
I suggest laminating a bunch and having your students use them to practice directions and prepositions.<br />
Mini dinky cars bought at Dollarama or Walmart will fit on the roads.<br />
Students love driving around on the streets.<br />
Use as a listening mark. - Can students arrive at your location?<br />
Use it as a speaking mark. - Can students explain directions from one place to another?<br />
Great for à + le/la/l'/les<br />
or prepositions and de + le/la/l'/les<br />
