5 gameboards, with differentiation, for Snakes and Ladders (Serpents et Echelles) to practise basic French vocabulary orally. It works well as a fun revision task, perhaps at the end of a term or at the end of the year. Any clues not managed could perhaps be looked up online or in a French dictionary. It's fine in A4 but if you are using it with a larger group you might want to print in A3. Answer and instruction cardsare included. Both files are in PDF and editable versions, in case you wish to amend, for instance if there is vocabulary you have been learning which is not currently featured or if you have been using alternative phrases for any of the ones featured. Some of the previews can take a while to load so I've included an additonal preview picture of two of the boards in JPEG format.
Boards 1 and 2 feature French words to be translated into English, while boards 3 and 4 feature English words to be translated into French. Board 5 is for lower ability pupils and features pictures and multiple choice answers.
This activity would suit a range of age groups, depending on their level of French experience. Most of the words come from these topics:
calendar (le calendrier) - days (les jours de la semaine), months (les mois), dates etc.
numbers (les nombres / les numeros / les chiffres)
introductions and greetings
weather (la meteo / le temps)
classroom objects (les objets de la classe)
colours (les couleurs)
I hope you enjoy using this with your class. If you can spare a moment I would be grateful for a review. Thank you.
