Coded message - great end of term / summer activity!

Coded message - great end of term / summer activity!

Each symbol represents a letter. Once the pupil have de-coded all the letters, it will give them the following message: Bonjour, je m’appelle Camille. En général je vais en vacances chez mon grand-père. Je voyage en avion. Quand je vais à la plage, je prends de l’eau minérale et un livre. Je n’aime pas la crème solaire! Je porte un maillot de bain vert et jaune avec un grand chapeau bleu. J’adore jouer avec mon bateau gonflable et mon petit seau! You can then reward the first person to find out: - the name of the mystery writer - where he goes on holiday - how he travels - what he wears to the beach - what he takes to the beach

FRENCH CITIES - FIVE DIFFERENTIATED WORD SEARCHES WITH ANSWER KEY AND TEMPLATE

FRENCH CITIES - FIVE DIFFERENTIATED WORD SEARCHES WITH ANSWER KEY AND TEMPLATE

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS AND DISCOVERING MAJOR CITIES IN FRANCE! 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 five differentiated word searches, with each consecutive grid increasing in challenge. Students can tell in which direction the words are written by looking at the arrow key on each grid. There is an answer key for each word search, so that students can check their own or each others’ answers - or use for a little extra help if they need it! There's a reference sheet of all cities included in the searches, which you can share between small groups of students, or give one to each student to stick into their learning workbooks as an all-year-round reference. Use as starters, refreshers, plenaries, pick-me-ups or fun-time fillers at any time during the school year, as well as when you’re discussing the geography of FRANCE. For a real focus on the cities of FRANCE, and to facilitate learner independence, photocopy all the grids as a workbook, and let students simply work their way through. The workbook format is great for home learning activities too. The differentiated word search templates are a great way of getting students to apply their knowledge of FRENCH a little more practically and creatively - they create word searches either individually or in teams to share across the classroom - completing these and the pre-prepared grids against a timer works well too! Encourage students to explore FRANCE a little further, and include what they consider to be major cities that are not already featured. I've classed the resource as suitable for Grades 5-8, but it really does depend on when your students began their FRENCH and the stage they're currently working at. The resource consists of 3 non-editable files. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only. MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON VOYAGE !

French menu with quiz

French menu with quiz

This resource has a French menu with prices, comprehension questions on it and the answers. I have also included notes on the menu in case you are not sure of the foods described. This is good for end of year 7 or year 8 students after they have done some work on food as it enlarges their vocabulary. I have used it as a basis for role-play and students have created their own versions adding dishes that they have researched. Can be used for cover with additional tasks such as design your restaurant logo and menu, create a quiz based on your menu to share with others, if students do this make sure they write the answers up for ease of correction.

End of topic project Directions - En ville

End of topic project Directions - En ville

Students spend 3-4 lessons (1h) to complete the project. They learn about a town in France and create a travel brochure in French. I used this activity with my Year 8s and they loved it. I included a reflection sheet to get them to think about the skills they used during this project. I paired them up but can be an individual activity.
