French weather expressions - Matching pairs game

French weather expressions - Matching pairs game

This communicative activity, based around a classic pairs game, is created as a fun activity to practice students’ French speaking and listening skills around the subject of weather. It is a simple and short activity that encourages students to communicate in French in a natural and conversational way. There are two sheets attached. One colour version of the game, and one black and white, which can be used for younger students as an extended colouring activity. Kids will practice how to say Quel temps fait-il? Il fait froid Il fait chaud Il fait beau Il fait mauvais Il pleut Il neige Il y a du vent Il y a du soleil You will need to print and cut out two copies of one of the weather sheets per game, and the game is played as follows. Students can play in pairs, but for larger classes you could double the students up to have two kids per team. Player1 asks player 2 the question 'Quel temps fait-il?' Player two responds with one of the weather phrases at random, eg. Il pleut Player 1 must turn over two of the il pleut cards. She must try and say the weather phrases on the cards that she picks up. If Player 1 picks the correct two matching cards, she keeps them and has another go. If she picks the wrong cards she puts them back and it is the turn of player 2 to ask ‘Quel temps fait-il?’ and for player 1 to suggest a weather expression to find. The player with the most amount of pairs at the end is the winner.

Market experience- Au Marche

Market experience- Au Marche

This lesson/activity can be approached from various angles. I used it as an introduction to phrasing questions as we had learnt the basic- ‘Puis-je avoir….?’ with classroom equipment. (The latter question was taught using sign language and is very effective with lower ability pupils). Pupils loved asking for food items. You can add a ‘bureau d’echange’ and pretend to swap for euros. This can lead onto a food topic or travelling topic. The activity of a market will need to be set up prior to the lesson and class rules be established. Create incentives which will reward pupils. One year, it was decoding a clue as they visited each shop. Everyone knows their own cohort. I have included some publisher documents which can be amended to create market stall signs. This can be also linked with D & T department. Pupils were looking at healthy eating and mediterranean produces. They decided to make a salad nicoise. I created a basic cook sheet with the D & T teacher and we arranged the stalls to have the correct items to make this salad. So not to waste tuna we provided bags of tuna!

Speaking skills challenge grid

Speaking skills challenge grid

I made this grid (based on the retrieval grid idea) to help my IGCSE English as a 2nd language class focus on their accuracy and range of grammatical structures and vocabulary before their Speaking exams. We used the grid to play a game: in pairs, students chose a square and produced a sentence on an agreed topic. The rest of the class have to say whether they think the grammar structure has been used accurately or not. My students: “Miss, I hate this game! Can I have another go?” It can be used to expand vocabulary too - students can generate their own vocabulary on a topic, decide how sophisticated it is and therefore how many marks should be given, and fill in their own grid to play in pairs. Print off the grids and laminate them or project them onto a whiteboard. While I used this for EAL students, it could equally be used in MFL classes. The game could easily be adapted for writing, too.

Speaking French bookmarks - general language KS4, KS3, KS2

Speaking French bookmarks - general language KS4, KS3, KS2

Smaller that a word mats, yet practical and handy for all level of learners. My students know where this is stored and access when they need it to support their learning. Sometimes we all use for speaking work to vary language. I tend to copy onto card, colour coded for each category, laminate and link with a binding ring.

French: Animals.  PowerPoint lesson and worksheets

French: Animals. PowerPoint lesson and worksheets

A bright and interactive PowerPoint presentation to enable pupils to begin building sentences and conduct simple conversations. It covers the first and second person singular of ‘avoir’ so that children are able to ask for and give information about their pets. It also deals with the masculine and feminine singular of adjectives including possessives (mon/ma; ton/ta). There is an accompanying vocabulary sheet, which needs to be studied before embarking on the paired and group conversation activities suggested in the presentation. Several worksheets accompany the PowerPoint: a crossword and word search to support the learning of essential vocabulary, a cloze exercise based on a simple text to be tackled as pupils progress towards sentence work, and finally, a written exercise where the task is to continue a conversation about pets between two friends.
