Je porte - Vêtements - Card Game

Je porte - Vêtements - Card Game

This game is a French version of the classic " I have… Who has …? " game, designed to practice the names of the clothes, the colours, the agreement between nouns and adjectives and the verb “wear”. This is an easy-to-play game and a great way to practice essential language concepts with the whole class. As students match up the answers on their cards with questions on other students’ cards, they get valuable practice with vocabulary, as well as reading and listening skills. Directions: Cut out the cards along the dotted line and laminate. For bigger classes, you might want to print several copies of each set. Give out all the cards in the set to the students. It is important to use all the cards. Choose a student to go first. I usually do that by a counting rhyme. Have the selected student read the question at the bottom of the card aloud and then put the card down. The student who has the card with the answer then reads that answer aloud. This student will then read the question at the bottom of their card and put the card down. Play continues in this fashion until all of the cards have been played. The game will end with the same student who started play. Every card in the set is connected to a card before it and a card after it. To keep the game moving at a quick pace, all students need to pay attention to every question that has been asked. I tell my younger students that this is a magic game and that the magic only works if you pay attention, which is actually true. The magic happens in the end, when the question on the last card actually matches the answer on the very first card. Enjoy!

French: Animals.  PowerPoint lesson and worksheets

French: Animals. PowerPoint lesson and worksheets

A bright and interactive PowerPoint presentation to enable pupils to begin building sentences and conduct simple conversations. It covers the first and second person singular of ‘avoir’ so that children are able to ask for and give information about their pets. It also deals with the masculine and feminine singular of adjectives including possessives (mon/ma; ton/ta). There is an accompanying vocabulary sheet, which needs to be studied before embarking on the paired and group conversation activities suggested in the presentation. Several worksheets accompany the PowerPoint: a crossword and word search to support the learning of essential vocabulary, a cloze exercise based on a simple text to be tackled as pupils progress towards sentence work, and finally, a written exercise where the task is to continue a conversation about pets between two friends.

These resources provide Medium Term Plans for French for any KS2 year group, depending on prior knowledge. The plans explain each lesson focus and has attached resources. There are also ideas and weblinks within the planning to make the teaching easier and fun for the children. I spoke conversational Spanish and NO French prior to being MFL Coordinator, I’m learning with the children every week as we progress. I’m having as much fun as them learning new vocabulary through speaking and listening games. So don’t worry if you’re not a linguist, give it a go, the children love it!
