French Basics Crossword (End of Year Revision Fun!)

French Basics Crossword (End of Year Revision Fun!)

A large (100+ clues) crossword puzzle featuring lots of basic French vocabulary. This is ideal for group work, with children perhaps competing against other groups to solve the puzzle as fast as possible. It works well as a fun revision task, perhaps at the end of a term or at the end of the year. Any clues not managed could perhaps be looked up online or in a French dictionary. It's fine in A4 but if you are using it with a larger group you might want to print in A3. The clues are in separate files and have been included in PDF and Word. The solutionis included in the same file as the empty crossword.This activity would suit a range of age groups, depending on their level of French experience. Most of the words come from these topics:calendar (le calendrier) - days (les jours de la semaine), months (les mois), dates etc.numbers (les nombres / les numeros / les chiffres)introductions and greetingsweather (la meteo / le temps)classroom objects (les objets de la classe)colours (les couleurs)I hope you enjoy using this with your class. If you can spare a moment I would be grateful for a review. Thank you.For lots more engaging, great value Maths, Literacy and French resources, visit FullShelf Resources

French Introductions Active Oral Game

French Introductions Active Oral Game

An active oral game to practise basic French introductions. Print and laminate the C'est Moi! (It's Me!) cards and distribute one to each child. The questions 'Comment tu t'appelles?', 'Quel âge as-tu?' and 'Où habites-tu?' will be asked and answered as children circulate, trying to find themselves! This activity can be played regularly and works well as a main lesson activity or fun starter / finisher task. The file is included as a PDF but also as an editable version in case you wish to make amendments - for instance you may wish to change the locations to better fit with where you are teaching.GAME INSTRUCTIONS:There are 18 identical pairs of cards. Each card used should have its matching card in play. If you have an odd number of pupils, the teacher or another adult can join in. Children circulate, asking and answering questions in French about name, age and where they live, in whatever order they wish. Children’s responses should be based on the information on their card. Without looking at each other’s card, children must try to find the player whose card matches their own. They can say “C’est moi!” (It’s me!) when they find them.Names, ages and places are repeated across the cards. Children will often need to ask more than one question before they can rule out a particular peer. Encourage children to greet each other using a French greeting and to say ‘Au revoir’ or ‘A bientôt’ before they head off to quiz the next child.Successful pairs could sit down when they have found their match. Lower ability / younger pupils could use a vocabulary card (see page 7), which contains the key words and phrases to be practised in this activity. A printable instruction card is also included for teacher use.I hope you enjoy using this in your class. If you can spare a moment I would be so grateful for a review. Many thanks for your interest in my resources.I have several other French greetings and introductions resources you might be interested in.

French Greetings / Introductions Role-play

French Greetings / Introductions Role-play

A set of 16 role-play cards (with French translations) for children to practise basic French greetings and introductions. Children can pair up to translate the English into French. The English language sides are designed to be printed back-to-back with the appropriate French translation. Pages 1 and 3 contain the English versions, with 2 and 4 containing the French translation for the children to check against. If preferred the translations could be printed and made into separate cards.I have also included a vocabulary card (the same card that comes with my French Greetings and Introductions Board Game) and this can be provided to support pupils where required. This oral activity reinforces different ways of saying 'hello' and 'goodbye' as well as asking and answering questions such as 'Ca va?' (How are you?), 'Comment tu t'appelles?' (What's your name?), 'Quel âge as-tu?' (How old are you?), 'Où habites-tu?' (Where do you live?) and 'Tu es de quelle nationalité?' (What nationality are you?). It works as a good stepping stone to more independent role-playing activities. As vocabulary for this area can vary, you may wish to edit. Therefore a Word version of both files has been included, in addition to the PDFs. The preview of the role-play cards Word version makes it look like a little bit of text is missing from some cards but this is simply a quirk of the preview. The text is actually still there on the card when you download it!Thank you for your interest in this resource.

La Famille Jolineau en vacances is a bilingual ( French/English) Ebook.

La Famille Jolineau en vacances is a bilingual fun story book for primary school children, usable from KS1, ideal for lessons about summer holidays. In the first part of the book, children can learn about family members; which activities/ leisure each member likes doing; saying names and age. After this introductory part, the book follows the family on holiday in Brittany, spending the day on the beach. This can be used as part of lessons on family, holidays and likes and dislikes. There is a cultural focus on le goûter ( the special after school French snack!) and activities at the back of the book on colours and days of the week. A section on silent consonants is an additional useful tool. Throughout the book, a little ladybird is asking questions to encourage active reading. Further , the silent consonants are marked in red.
