Le passé composé  en vacances - The French past tense on holidays with Mrs Vandertramp verbs.

Le passé composé en vacances - The French past tense on holidays with Mrs Vandertramp verbs.

This resource is an introduction on how to use the Mrs Vandertramp verbs in French past tense. It starts off by revising how to form the passé composé with verbs that take "avoir" as an auxiliary. There is an opportunity to formatively assess pupils' understanding on how to conjugate the past tense with avoir through a translation activity on MWBs, and the task is differentiated with support and challenge embedded within the instructions. Once the pupils are familiar with avoir verbs, the lesson moves on to introduce être verbs through the use of a song. The pupils are expected to write down the past participles for the être verbs that they see/hear in the video. Again this activity is differentiated by outcome, the verbs that the pupils are expected to find are colour-coded by traffic light colours. The pupils are also introduced to agreements of the past participles and tested on their understanding with a correct the errors activity. Finally, the main task of this lesson is a worksheet which is, again, differentiated by outcome. The pupils are given the choice on where they wish to start on the worksheet depending on how confident they feel. This sheet tests their understanding on which verbs take avoir or être. This lesson would fit seamlessly into a topic on holidays as all of the additional vocabulary is related to a holiday in Paris.

GCSE FRENCH: Ceci ou Cela - French Game of 2 Extremes Ice-breaker Activity

GCSE FRENCH: Ceci ou Cela - French Game of 2 Extremes Ice-breaker Activity

Keep your middle school and high school French students active by playing the "Two Extremes" game. The facilitator will use a stack of cards listing things, activities or places that fall at opposite ends of the spectrum, such as: salty or sweet, Paris or New York, Mac or PC. The students start standing in a big group, but when each choice is read, they move to the side of the room that the facilitator indicates is associated with their choice (see the arrows on the cards). Those who can’t make up their mind or don’t have a preference remain in the center. Students will see all of the things that they have in common with their classmates and will likely learn some new vocabulary while they’re at it! These cards are great for middle school or high school and can be used at any time, especially when everyone needs a break and needs to stand up and move around a bit. This activity requires no teacher prep once the set of cards is printed and cut out. Don’t want to print or don’t have time to do so? That’s ok! There’s a PDF file with only one card per page that you can project and play as a class. Included: PDF of big cards to project when you don’t want to print Stack of 50 cards to print, cut out, punch holes in and attach with a ring - Black and white & color copies provided How to play LICENSING TERMS: This purchase includes a license for one teacher only for personal use in their classroom.

Brussels comic strip mural / Bruxelles parcours BD

Brussels comic strip mural / Bruxelles parcours BD

I believe that reading comic books from francophone countries (in English or French) is a major cultural point. The Brussel comic strip mural walk is amazing but sadly not everyone has the chance to go there. This website offers your students the possibility to check that famous city walk through an interactive map.

Opinions + infinitive with the Futur proche (near future)

Opinions + infinitive with the Futur proche (near future)

This lesson is intended for year 7 and follows on from a lesson on the futur proche. The first part of the lesson is focussed on revision of the Futur Proche and should be used to encourage the pupils to explain how the near future is formed. The 4th slide is sentences in the future proche that are to be translated into French on mini white boards. Once the pupils have been introduced to the opinion phrases with the infinitive, there is a slide for them to practice consolidating it in pairs with a game using dice. This slide can also be used to formatively assess them, before moving onto a written task in which the pupils are expected to reply to a pen friend, discussing their plans for the weekend and the opinions on said activities.
