Les repas, using 3 tenses. Studio 2  Module 4

Les repas, using 3 tenses. Studio 2 Module 4

This is a lesson based on Studio 2, module 4 chez moi, chez toi, but I added the near future tense in the lesson, as the texts from the Studio dod not allow for this and there was a need to stretch more able. You will need to refer to the texts from Studio 2 to do the translations, but these can be done without looking at the texts if Studio 2 is not used. The sequencing activities was a differentiated activitiy to stretch more able while others needed consolidation with the tenses ( refer to lesson plan )

French: Les Fruits Smoothie Challenge

French: Les Fruits Smoothie Challenge

Pupils race against the clock and each other to find the meaning of 22 fruits. Task 1: work on your won to find as many of the words as you can in the allocated time (teacher to set classroom timer and provide dictionaries). Task 2: work with a partner to share answers in the allocated time. Task 3: circulate the classroom and exchange words with others in an attempt to fill in the blanks (at this point I offer my own services and offer one exchange with each pupil- they have usually left the trickier ones to the end and might need you to support in this way in order to translate all 22). Most are fruit, some are liquids- enabling them to create a simple but delicious fruit smoothie. Task 4: select 5 ingredients for a fruit smoothie (you could reward the winner).Great for developing dictionary skills; increasing vocabulary; encouraging pupil interaction and using language creatively.3 sheets are provided- 2 in colour (a pink version and a blue version) and 1 in black and white.

Speaking board games Y8 Hobbies / Food and drink

Speaking board games Y8 Hobbies / Food and drink

A useful resource for getting students to speak spontaneously. In small groups (4 players) students roll a dice and move their counters to the relevant spot on the board. They have to say the phrase in French shown on the square they've landed on. If they can't say it they go back to their original square. In my experience students really enjoy this opportunity to use spoken French in a small group, rather than in front of the class. As the teacher I can move around the groups checking what the students are saying. To help them last longer we laminate the boards. Counters and dice are required too, but can be bought very cheaply.
