La Grammaire Française.

This pack includes • An introduction to an extensive range of grammatical terms, including pronouns, infinitives, conjugated verbs, articles, and intensifiers, with lots of examples. Other Power Points have a more in-depth check of understanding with French texts; one for students who have only covered present tense verbs; and the other covering three tenses.• A grammar sorting challenge, which is a whole class team game to revise and/ or check pupils’ understanding of grammatical terms. This follows on well from the first resource in this bundle. • A step-by-step guide to using possessive adjectives in French, with PowerPoint slides that can be used for pupils to record grammar notes. There are lots of exercises to complete as you go through to check comprehension.

French Grammar Sorting Challenge.

French Grammar Sorting Challenge.

This grammar sorting challenge is a whole class team game to revise and/ or check pupils’ understanding of grammatical terms. In teams pupils are given a large set of French words and each term must work together to attach each of their words to one of the 8 posters that are stuck up around the classroom with the following headings: Conjugated Verbs, Infinitives, Nouns, Subject Pronouns, Articles, Adjectives, Connectives and Time Phrases. Only one team member is allowed to be out of their seat at any one time. There is a PowerPoint slide to show the challenge on the board and it has a sound document attached - this is a timed challenge and pupils have only the length of the song to complete the challenge. At the end, teams are scored by the correct number of words they have under the appropriate grammatical headings. Each team has their words in a different colour font and therefore you can easily identify to which team the words belong. I have also included a further explanation document with this resource. Ideal to use after the PowerPoint ‘Understanding Grammatical Terms for French Learners.

Year 7 settling activities

Year 7 settling activities

This bundle comprises 88 settling activities suitable for Year 7 in their first year of French. Several are based on cognates and cultural information in order that they are accessible by students who have almost no knowledge of French language.I find that a settling activity on the board as the class comes in leads to a calm and quiet start to the lesson, allowing students to be challenged from the first moment.Settling activities are also useful for revising vocab or grammar points that students wouldn't otherwise see very frequently.

Year 7 settling activities bundle 5

Year 7 settling activities bundle 5

I like to have one of these settling activities on the board as the students come into the classroom. It's part of their routine that they start on the settling activity as soon as they've sat down and copied the date and title. I find that it makes a calm start to the lesson and in addition it's an excellent opportunity to cover vocab or a grammar point that students haven't seen for some time.
