French TV programs and near future tense full (no prep)

French TV programs and near future tense full (no prep)

Watching TV may seem obsolete now with the easy access to the Internet. However, our students still watch TV and different different TV programs. How about teaching some vocabulary about TV shows then while reinforcing opinions and introducing the near future tense? This complete lesson made of a PPT with 27 slides and an activity booklet of 11 pages will help you teach not only about TV programs but also about grammar in a fun way. Here's what you'll get:-a self-target setting slide- a matching up activity with TV programs- an introduction to vocabulary and drilling through games ( slapping the board, say what it is, missing vowels etc.)- a true/false activity- a survey with questions about TV habits to recap adverbs of frequency- a review about likes and dislikes- a snakes and ladder- a "Find who did it" activity to recap the past tense- a grammar point about the near future tense + practice (filling -gap)- a reading activity ( filling-gap, find the French, answer the questions)- a pair work to extend their speaking ( What are you going to do? When? With who? Where?)- Plenary with noughts and crossesHave fun!
