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.
