FRENCH FOR CHILDREN - PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS AND PRACTICING VOCABULARY IN FRENCH - 40 ESSENTIAL WORDS AND PHRASES! FRENCH FOR CHILDREN QUICK VOCABULARY QUIZZES really do help to create a lively language learning environment, and offer a popular alternative to more traditional vocabulary ‘drilling’ activities.

The quizzes have a bonus multi-focus on listening, speaking, pronunciation, reading, writing and spelling. It doesn’t matter if the featured vocabulary doesn’t correspond exactly to the language in your past, current, short or even longer-term learning plans - the quizzes are a great way of encouraging children to engage with both familiar and new language. Use during lessons which focus specifically on these vocabulary groups, as well as as starters, plenaries or ’pick-me-ups’ at any time during the school year for maximum benefit! This set features words and phrases in the following vocabulary groups: MONTHS OF THE YEAR SEASONS OF THE YEAR NUMBERS 21-31 CONVERSATION There are 40 words & phrases and four quizzes, each with a different challenge and skill focus: QUIZ 1: children WRITE the ENGLISH word from a FRENCH prompt - 40 QUESTIONS QUIZ 2: children WRITE the FRENCH word from an ENGLISH prompt - 40 QUESTIONS QUIZ 3: children can play in teams or individually, responding ORALLY with the correct ENGLISH word from a written FRENCH prompt - 40 QUESTIONS QUIZ 4: children can play in teams or individually, responding ORALLY with the correct FRENCH word from a written ENGLISH prompt - 40 QUESTIONS QUIZZES 3 and 4 are really useful for reading out loud and pronunciation practice too, and are also provided in pdf format so that children can use independently on tablets or similar devices - this is great if you’re homeschooling too.

Present tense verb conjugation wheel

Present tense verb conjugation wheel

This resource is 3 make-your-own verb conjugation wheels to assist students in conjugating French ER, IR and RE verbs in the present tense. By cutting out the wheel and using a split-pin to join the wheel to the example present tense verb stem, students are able to make their own wheels for use in the classroom. The user rotates the verb stem to the desired pronoun and the correct ending is added on. Students can either make them themselves and attach them in their exercise books via the split pin or they can be printed and laminated to create a reusable resource. The file is attached as a PDF.
