FRENCH CHRISTMAS NUMBERS 0-31 CHALLENGE CARDS

FRENCH CHRISTMAS NUMBERS 0-31 CHALLENGE CARDS

PERFECT FOR CREATING A FESTIVE FEEL IN YOUR CLASSROOM AND IDEAL FOR DEVELOPING FRENCH LANGUAGE SKILLS AS WELL AS PRACTICING AND REVISING FRENCH NUMBERS 0-31! 36 CHALLENGE CARDS WITH RECORDING SHEET AND FULL ANSWER KEY! FRENCH NUMBERS 0-31 CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE CARDS really do help to create a lively language learning environment. Students can develop, embed, reinforce and refresh their knowledge of FRENCH numbers in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, independently of the teacher. They have a bonus multi-skill focus on listening, speaking, pronunciation, reading and spelling. They’re great for helping students familiarize themselves with, and develop competence in, speaking, reading, writing and spelling numbers in FRENCH. The cards are useful not only when you’re focusing on Numbers 0-31, but also as a starter, plenary and general ‘pick-me-up’ activity, as often as you can in lessons during the run-up to CHRISTMAS - the goal is not simply to learn how to count in FRENCH, but also to enjoy working with FRENCH, and to feel confident about doing so. The questions range in complexity and challenge, and are great for honing numeracy skills too - especially if calculators are not allowed! The questions and design provide lessons with a real festive feel - I’ve included a mini-reference list to help students with their FRENCH CHRISTMAS words - one or two per small group of students is sufficient. The cards do look great printed in colour, though I’ve also included a B&W version to help keep costs down. The resource comprises the following 6 files: * 2 sets of 36 challenge cards (colour/B&W), 4 per A4 (8.5 x 11) paper. Print, laminate and cut out. Depending on how long you want the activity to last for, choose a particular number of cards per small group of students, and place them in a tin, bowl or small box so that students can easily select a card, and then replace at the end of the activity. You can simply place all the cards in the bowl/box and let students work their way through, either in a single lesson, or across a series of lessons - I’ve found 10-15 minutes across several lessons can work really well. Students do need to remember to file their recording sheets carefully! * 2-page answer recording sheet (x2, colour/B&W). Best printed double-sided. * 2-page answer key (x2, colour/B&W), again best printed double-sided, and laminated for longevity. One answer key for each small group is sufficient. Students find this reference sheet really useful - download it for free here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/french-numbers-0-31-reference-sheet-11743634 The resource consists of 6 non-editable files in a zipped format. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully; the resource is copyright, and for single teacher/purchaser use only. MERCI BEAUCOUP ET JOYEUX NOËL!

French Christmas Interactive Book

French Christmas Interactive Book

This is an interactive French Christmas Book. It works via the click of a mouse. It would be engaging for secondary school children and adults alike. I have set it out in to paragraphs or learning rooms:- vocab, sentences, paragraph, exercise and dictation. It works through the target language gradually building as you work your way through the rooms. My son and I have also dictated the content to give an authentic (my son) French accent, or nearly (me). This is the first book game I have created and I would be very much interested in your feedback on it or suggestions for future topics. Kindest regards and enjoy. Merry Christmas

French Christmas Song: Les Douze Jours de Noël

French Christmas Song: Les Douze Jours de Noël

Great Christmas song as it consolidates numbers and is a good introduction to ordinal numbers. Powerpoint 1 introduces the vocabulary. Powerpoint 2 accompanies Worksheets 1 and 2. The resources break down the vocabulary by working on numbers then nouns. You can teach each day individually with Powerpoint 1 before adding the full verses with Powerpoint 2. There is also a link to Youtube video to sing along to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yB8dzktiBm4 . There is a PDF file with the song in full as well as a wordsearch. I divide the class into groups with each group ‘owning’ a day or several days depending on the size of the class. You can have a competition between odd numbers and even numbers. I have also in the past had the class find out which nouns are masculine and feminine then split the ‘gifts’ between girls and boys. It can also lead to craft and/or drama activities.

FRENCH CHRISTMAS WORD SEARCHES

FRENCH CHRISTMAS WORD SEARCHES

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING FRENCH LANGUAGE SKILLS WITH A FESTIVE FEEL! Mots Cachés are a fabulous way of encouraging students to engage with the written word in FRENCH, refreshing and reinforcing language as they complete the grids. This set features ten differentiated word searches, with each consecutive grid increasing in challenge. It focuses on 30 FRENCH CHRISTMAS WORDS, which will also help to develop students’ awareness of some Francohphone Christmas traditions and figures, such as Saint Nicholas and Père Fouettard. There are 5 FRENCH to ENGLISH grids, where students are prompted with the FRENCH words, and look for them in FRENCH in the grid. For additional consolidation, each grid also features an ENGLISH word list that they have to complete, really putting their knowledge to the test! There are also 5 ENGLISH to FRENCH grids, where the prompt words are given in ENGLISH, and learners have to find the FRENCH equivalent in the grid. For additional consolidation and practice in writing and spelling in FRENCH, they also complete the FRENCH word list on each page. Students can tell in which direction the words are written by looking at the arrow key on each grid. There is an answer grid for each word search, so that students can check their answers - or use for a little extra help if they need it. The word searches are in landscape format, as this mirrors the common direction of reading from left to right, facilitating learner engagement with the activity. I’ve included a FRENCH-English reference sheet - you can either laminate this to share around small groups of students, or give one to each student to stick into their learning workbooks as a general reference resource. Students will have to look carefully at some of the words they’re looking for, as they may appear slightly differently - for example, they may have to find ‘AN ELF’ and work out what that is in FRENCH - only the prompt LES LUTINS appears in the reference list. Use as starters, refreshers, plenaries or fun-time fillers at any time during the CHRISTMAS season. Students do like the challenge of working their way through a number of grids on one go! There are two versions of the word searches and keys - either with a colour or B&W background — you may prefer to print in B&W to keep prep costs down. Laminate the answer keys if you can - they’ll last for many CHRISTMASTIMES to come! The resource consists of five non-editable files. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only. MERCI BEAUCOUP ET JOYEUX NOËL!

French Halloween lesson - Halloween en français - En quoi tu te déguises?

French Halloween lesson - Halloween en français - En quoi tu te déguises?

A fantastically engaging and spooky Halloween lesson for both Primary and Key stage 3. This lesson compromises introducing Halloween costumes in French and has the objective of being able to say what you are dressing up as for Halloween in French by the end of the lesson. The objective is achieved through engaging games such as choral repetition, beat the teacher, "which is missing?". Once the vocabulary has been practiced with the pupils, it is time for them to get out of their seats and solve a mystery involving the characters to whom they have just been introduced! The mystery involves solving a number of clues by answering questions in French based on familiar vocabulary. The pupils take the first letter of each answer and are left with an anagram of the culprit to the crime. The first pupil/pair/team to rearrange the anagram and find the culprit are the winners. Once the mystery is solved, the pupils learn how to ask and answer what they are dressing up as, for Halloween. They are also encouraged to challenge themselves by giving reasons for their chosen costume by learning a number of Halloween related adjectives. The pupils then consolidate this new vocabulary by undertaking a survey of other pupils in the room to find out their Halloween costumes. Note: The clues in the "Who stole the Queen's lunch?" should be cut up and placed around the room for the pupils to read. Mix these up so that they don't reveal the answer too easily! Included in the survey slide and the "qui est le coupable?" slide are 2 embedded videos with French Halloween songs to create some atmosphere for when the pupils undertake the tasks. Also included in this lesson are Halloween Flashcards, these are to be used as the clues when solving the mystery. It is useful to print these off and lay them out somewhere visible for the pupils when solving the anagram as they include the correct spellings.
