Francophone Countries Unit of Work

Francophone Countries Unit of Work

A Unit of work (18 files) introducing French speaking countries with work on nationalities and prepositions. Includes: 2 x ‘Fun with Flags’ - Colouring by numbers flags to reinforce colours and introduce French speaking countries. I have allowed pupils to use ICT to find out which countries the flags belong to once they have coloured in but there is also a Powerpoint presentation in case resources or time are limited. There are completed examples for reference and the Powerpoint can also be used as a quiz or a presentation. Francophone Top Trumps – a set of 35 cards with facts about 35 francophone countries and an explanatory Powerpoint, règles du jeu, with vocabulary. Top Trumps can be played in pairs, group or as a class starter and encourages Reading, Listening and Talking. The Top Trumps can be adapted for a range of abilities. There are also checklists with the values and a Powerpoint with a suggested writing task – the information from the ‘cards’ is used to fill in the gaps. Nationalities: 2 worksheets for pupils to cross reference the countries and nationalities plus answer sheets. Powerpoint introducing the prepositions used with countries, an accompanying worksheet and answer sheet. There is also a checklist of the gender for each of the 35 countries.

French Basics - presentation and resources for teaching times using 12hr clock

French Basics - presentation and resources for teaching times using 12hr clock

If students in the early stages of language learning lack confidence with using numbers or with using analogue times in English, they are likely to struggle with telling the time in French. By beginning with digital times, starting with the 12 hour clock, students are able to master the structures and become confident with the numbers before moving on to the 24hr clock and ultimately to analogue times. The materials provided here present and practise digital times using the 12 hour clock. They include: a step-by-step 12 slide presentation, which could be split over more than one lesson; activities/games for extensive speaking/listening/reading practice; reading and writing worksheets; a reference sheet; teacher notes. There are also opportunities to include the 24 hour clock. Teachers could go on to reinforce the work by including the times in any number of sentence structures.
