J'habite en France

J'habite en France

Set of resources to explore French cities and practice vocabulary of where I live. This includes maps of France that students can label with cities, a larger version of the map and names that can be used for whole class activity on the board, and a presentation to go with it. I like to finish this off with a video of Les Machines de l'Ile de Nantes to give students a little insight of what is produced and created in France.

Le carnaval - instructions in French on how to make a mask

Le carnaval - instructions in French on how to make a mask

This is a task that would be suitable for KS2 or below. There are basic instructions with photos and a summary page at the end. There are also a number of animal mask templates that you could use. You will need mask printouts(A4), card (A4),scissors, glue and something to tie the mask on (e.g. ribbon, elastic etc). It is useful to help students figure out meaning of language and also helps students to follow a series of instructions without the need to ask what they need to do. I hope it's useful!

French Valentine's Game Part 1

French Valentine's Game Part 1

Part 1 is a freebie. You don't need the other parts to play but if you would like to purchase them they are available here https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/french-valentine-s-game-11829704?theme=1 A great 'speed dating' speaking activity. Distribute hearts to all pupils and put on some French music. They circulate the room asking 'comment t'appelles-tu?' until they find their matching pair eg. Tu es Barack Obama, trouve Michelle. Parts 2, 3 and 4 use the question 'ou habites-tu?' 'qu'est-ce que tu aimes manger? and 'qu'est-ce que tu aimes faire?' Great for getting the pupils speaking. A godd one off valentines lesson without having to teach them new vocab. Could even be good for KS4 to warm them up and develop confidence with familiar questions.

French Valentine's Game

French Valentine's Game

Distribute hearts to all pupils and they have to find their matching heart. Game 1 is matching names eg. Tu es Barack Obama, trouve Michelle. (Other half = Tu es Michelle). Game 2 is matching places eg. Tu veux visiter New York. (Other half = Tu habites a New York). Game 3 is matching hobbies eg. Tu aimes faire du sport. (Other half = tu es sportif). Game 4 is matching food eg. Tu aimes la cuisine italienne. (Other half = tu aimes la pizza). There are 16 matching pairs (32 halves) in each game but if your class is bigger i have included spare hearts for you to add your own. If your class is smaller simply leave some pairs out. The hearts are backed in colour for differentiation (tell pupils their matching half shares the same background colour.) Or print on in black and white to increase challenge. Make it more romantic by playing French love songs in the background as they circulate and only stop when the music pauses. Or tell them it is like speed dating and they need to find their matching heart before the music stops. Reward pupils for any French interaction you hear as they circulate the room.
