Exam technique quiz

Exam technique quiz

Do you ever have students who never read questions and instructions properly?I created this to make the point on how important it is to read questions!Students just have to read the instructions carefully, they are not supposed to do any of the questions as at the end the need to just fold the paper in half.My Yr 11's loved it and it and it did provide a good few minutes of fun watching those students who did not read the task properly.Great starter activity if you are doing exam revision.It can be used with any year group in any subject.Enjoy!

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.
