FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES - 46 POSTERS / FLASHCARDS

FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES - 46 POSTERS / FLASHCARDS

PERFECT FOR CREATING AN INSTANT INTRODUCTION TO THE FRENCH-SPEAKING WORLD AND GREAT FOR READING, SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION PROMPTS TOO! Create an instant introduction to LES PAYS FRANCOPHONES and brighten up your classroom with this set of posters showing a range of world countries and territories where FRENCH is an official language. Each poster shows the country and capital city in FRENCH, and its national flag, and together they give your classroom a great multicultural look and feel. At the same time, they promote FRENCH as a living language, spoken widely across the world, and featuring in the everyday life of your learning environment. I’ve included countries or regions where a significant number of the population speak FRENCH as either their first or second language, such as Viet Nam. I’ve also included two posters for some countries, such as FRANCE, officially known as the RÉPUBLIQUE FRANÇAISE - you can choose either the more frequently-used LA FRANCE or the RÉPUBLIQUE FRANÇAISE to display. There may be a number of countries and capital cities that students do not know, or are not aware of, so the posters also help them develop their general awareness, knowledge and understanding of world geography. The posters look great displayed horizontally across a particular learning area alphabetically works well, though non-alphabetically is perfect for a country quest activity! The resource consists of two non-editable files in a zipped format. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the posters are copyright, and for single teacher/purchaser-use only. MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON VOYAGE !

FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES, CAPITAL CITIES & FLAGS 80 GAME CARDS

FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES, CAPITAL CITIES & FLAGS 80 GAME CARDS

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING BOTH LANGUAGE SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE OF THE FRANCOPHONE WORLD! FRENCH-SPEAKING countries, capital cities and flags game cards provide great learning opportunities for any appropriate grade group, at any time of the school year! Students can develop their language skills, as well as their knowledge of both the FRANCOPHONE and wider world, in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, independently of the teacher. There are 40 flag cards, and 40 country with capital city cards, featuring the countries where FRENCH is an official language. There may be a number of countries and capital cities that students do not know, or are not aware of, so the games help them fully develop their general awareness, knowledge and understanding of LES PAYS FRANCOPHONES. There is a country, capital city and flag reference list of all countries and capitals, which students find useful to read through before playing - allow them only 60 seconds on a timer to really focus their reading and increase the sense of competition if you are playing competitive team games! It can also be used as a year-round reference resource, which students can file in their workbooks or learning folders. Laminate the cards and reference sheets if you can - you will be able to use them for years to come. Revisit regularly - can students beat their own record? I've described the resource as suitable for Grades 6-9, but it really does depend on when your students began FRENCH - the games work well with any appropriate grade group. The resource consists of two, non-editable files in a zipped format. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only. MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON VOYAGE !
