FRENCH ANIMALS - 100 EASTER BUNNY GAME CARDS

FRENCH ANIMALS - 100 EASTER BUNNY GAME CARDS

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS IN FRENCH!FRENCH EASTER BUNNY ANIMALS GAMES CARDS are perfect for young learners of FRENCH. They provide lots of opportunities to learn a range of animals, both masculine and feminine, and really do help to create a lively language learning environment. Children can develop their skills in word recognition and recall, pronunciation, speaking, listening and reading in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, independently of the teacher. They’re a great way of introducing the concept of gender, and of looking at determiners in FRENCH too.It doesn’t matter is any of the animals don’t feature in your immediate or even longer-term learning plan: the card games encourage children to engage happily and confidently with FRENCH, to identify cognates and to begin to link spelling with sound in FRENCH. They also help learners begin to work out the meaning of unknown words using visual clues and prompts. Along the way, children may even get to know some new animals!There are 100 cards in total, which include 2 sets of 50 cards to enable you to differentiate your games: - blue bunny cards with the word written out in full in FRENCH, as well as the picture prompt. - blackline bunny cards with the word written out in full in ENGLISH, as well as the picture prompt- blackline bunny cards with the picture prompt only- blue bunny cards with the word written out in full in FRENCH - this is really useful for word recognition and recallThe animals featured are:- bee- bird- cat- chicken- cow- dog- duck- elephant- fish- fox- frog- giraffe- horse- lion- monkey- owl- parrot- pig- rabbit- sheep- spider- squirrel- tiger- tortoise/turtle- zebraI've suggested a range of really successful and popular games to play - play them games as often as possible around EASTER TIME for maximum benefit - the EASTER BUNNIES are always really popular with little learners! Playing against a timer adds some extra fun! Laminate the cards for longevity - you will be able to play the EASTER BUNNY games for many EASTERTIMES to come!The resource consists of a single, non-editable pdf file - I've included a couple of preview images so that you can see what the resource looks like.

Powerpoint story - La Petite Poule Rouge KS1 KS2

Powerpoint story - La Petite Poule Rouge KS1 KS2

Powerpoint version of the traditional story ‘La Petite Poule Rouge’. A familiar story, adapted from a web-based version of the text. I found it useful as a traditional story in its own right, but also as a starting point for introducing the names of some animals in French at KS1 and for making comparisons with the English version as a 'Language Detectives&' - style exercise with KS2 children. Kept narrative in past historic by choice as I didn&';t focus on the tenses for KS1/KS2 but it can obviously be adapted if you wish to do so.

Les Animaux - Board Game

Les Animaux - Board Game

Playing lotto is a fun way to practice and reinforce the names of animals in French. Could also be used in early years and for any foreign language. I thought it a welcome change to include 'life like pictures.' There are 24 images which include: un chatun poussinun lapinun oiseauune sourisun cochonun tigreune libelluleun chienun agneauune mouetteun cochon d'Indeune coccinelleun canardune girafeun moutonun hibouun chevalun poissonun serpentun rouge-gorgeun écureuilune chèvreun lion I split my children into small groups and they each take turns at being the 'teacher'. They love calling out 'Qui a un chat?' and 'Qui a une vache? To win the card the reply is 'J'ai un chat, 'J'ai une vache.' As children become confident with vocabulary, the colours of the animals could also be mentioned. I have also included cards with animal names. Good practice for oral work. Picture cards and words need to be printed twice. If you consider this worth buying, 'un très grand merci.' Comments and feedback is always welcome and appreciated.My thanks to 'pexels.com' for the use of the pictures, even though attribution is not required.
