French art, shapes and colors full lesson / Les formes et couleur en francais

Teaching a language is not just about vocabulary and grammar but it is also about culture. How about embedding some culture while teaching your students about shapes and colors? This complete lesson made of a PPT (38 slides) and an activity booklet (10 pages) will help you teach your students about shapes, colors but also opinions and different types of paintings. By the end of the lesson your students should be able to recognize different types of paintings and they should be able to give their opinion. Here's what you get:- a self-target setting slide- a word search about colors and a dictionary search- a review about clours- an introduction to shapes through a matching up with shapes/colours- drilling of shapes through games (guessing game and multiple choice, colouring activity)- a quiz about famous artists/paintings- a recap about likes/dislikes + fruit/vegetables (through Arcimboldo)- a matching up about artistic movements- a pair work -back-to back game with descriptions- a reading activity with a description about Monet's Femme à l'ombrelle- a writing activity to describe some paintings- a plenary with expressions related to colors- a review of objectivesHave fun

Shapes: French Vocabulary Card Sort

Shapes: French Vocabulary Card Sort

This is a card sort to help students learn words for 2D shapes (10 words in total). This would be a useful task with younger groups or low ability groups. There are three separate files, depending on how you want to present the task.- The 'teacher copy' shows a grid with all items already matched. - The 'student version' is a random layout, print this out and give to students. They can then cut out the items and match them, or stick them into their workbooks.- The 'quick cut' is designed so that you can produce 10 packs of cards quickly and easily using a guillotine. Each page has the same card 10 times over. This allows you to remove words that may not be suitable or needed. Alternatively you can print the same page twice double-sided to produce flash cards.

100 words you should know

100 words you should know

A great activity for the end of the first year of teaching of French covering a variety of basic topics but focusing mainly on sound-spelling and reading skills. Pupils have the chance to read aloud, practise phonics and apply them to a text with some unfamiliar words. Plenty of competition elements. A plan outlining the lesson run is attached. Students can also use the grid of 100 words as homework translations and then try to build sentences using as many of the words as they can.

Allez 1 Module 1 Tout sur moi- whole Module

This is my whole set of lessons for the first module of Allez.Our school doesn't teach normal lessons for the first two weeks of year 7 hence the reason why it starts on a lesson 5 and the first two units are a bit rushed.There are hyperlinks almost everywhere in my notebook smarboard links so click on images, icons, etc to understand where the powerpoint goes for example.Any questions about some activities please ask me.This was my first experience with Allez, since then I have developped my game but comments welcome :)Edit: This represents a lot of work and planning so if you do download this could you please vote and comment...
