Classroom display (connectives ranging from easy to hard)

Classroom display (connectives ranging from easy to hard)

The single most important resource I’ve ever used, this easy to assemble display means you have instant scaffolding for students of all abilities. Everytime you want them to write something, all you need to do is set a minimum number of connectives to use. Over time, students get used to looking up to find a new one; they also have a way of challenging themselves to use more advanced language because they are colour-coded. Any writing task I set, I always refer to this display and give students specific targets about how they should extend their French sentences. Anytime we do a speaking exercise, this display forms the backbone. A lot of the resources I create, including all the French ones I have uploaded to TES, use language taken from this display. This is the key to all those resources. I cannot emphasise enough how useful a display like this has been in my classroom. I was soon noticing that the best students would note down a few of the better connectives to use when recording their homework, just so that they could make sure they used their best French.

French idioms worksheet

French idioms worksheet

For extra fluency, use idioms. But how do we get students to appreciate the meaning behind the sometimes bizarre literal translations? Make the bizarre literal translations the point of the exercise. It doesn’t take much to work this into your lesson, and you effectively only need to do it once because the students will have a copy of the idioms waiting to be used, whenever they think to use them. The students only need a dictionary. If you want to make it harder, give them a limit to how many words they can get translated for them (say, 3) and you use an online dictionary to show them what they mean. That way they need to look carefully at the phrases, work out what stumps them most, and get help for the phrases that they are least likely to be able to work out themselves. The second sheet is the answer sheet.

Edexcel French Speaking and Writing Support Booklet New Spec 2018

This (15,000 word ) support booklet provides an excellent resource for the writing and speaking preparation for the new Edexcel (although can be used for other boards). The comprehensive guide covers the following** key areas:** A simple breakdown of the exams and success criteria. An explanation of key tenses and examples (passé composé, l’imparfait, present, conditional, futur Simple, immediate future and more). Questions per topic with support to write individual answers per student with sentence starters in the correct tenses Contents page for easy access Links to cultural information (for example, traditional French foods and festivals) to add that little bit extra to each response. This booklet will help students prepare answers and teachers prepare questions for the speaking exams and for students to prepare content for their writing exams. Students in my school love it and it helps the strongest to stretch themselves and supports those that need a little more help. A fantastic starting point for any students or teacher.

This is a great way to save time marking, yet provide detailed feedback to the whole class. Headings can be adapted, but they focus on the main aspects of improving pupils’ work, such as what they did well, how they can improve, along with grammar and spelling issues, along with praising those in the class that went above and beyond. This can be used in any subject.

This game can be used for all subjects and for all abilities. There are brief explanations on how to change things to match your subject in the notes page on the first two slides. All you need to do is write in your questions and answers and it will do the rest. I have titled “correct answer” on each question enry so if you click it it will move you up the money board. Click an incorrect one and it will tell you it’s wrong and you lose. Classes I have used this with have really enjoyed it and it has prompted whole class discussion.
