French Verb tenses cards

French Verb tenses cards

I created some French cards in order to help students to master the French conjugation for the present, the near future, the future, the perfect tense and the imperfect tense. They are front and back with the rule at the front (student friendly) and the exceptions or main verbs at the back. It is very useful to master the French conjugation.

Awesome sheet - house and home

Awesome sheet - house and home

Students pair match English and French sentences then have to decide why each sentence is an awesome sentence. Does it contain connectives, opinions, reasons or negatives? What tense is it in? what other features of good writing are included. They can go on to adapt the sentences to their own work or use it as a reference (eg your writing has no conditional - can you find some from the sheet?)

Expo 2 Vert - Year 8 French - Module 1 'Salut' Famille et Domicile. 5 resources for a full lesson.

Expo 2 Vert - Year 8 French - Module 1 'Salut' Famille et Domicile. 5 resources for a full lesson.

5 resources, covering different skills, which can be used to create a whole lesson. All resources are intended for use with Expo 2 VERT, although could be adapted for Rouge. 1) Starter gap-fill - good starter for revision from key language covered in Year 7 and then revised on Page 6 of Expo 2 Vert. Could be done before or after the exercises on that page. 2) Reading Grid for Page 7, exercise 4 - texts to read in exercise book. There are 2 grids with Easier and More Difficult Levels. Easy one is multiple choice and other one requires answers in English. Pupils can then stick grids in books. 3) Personality Agreement Grid - Revision of Etre and some key personality adjectives from Expo 1. They are the ones used on page 7 in Expo 2 Vert. Rules explained and pupils have to fill in some feminine endings, following patterns and also need to give the English. Can do a quick Q&A of this afterwards, to get pupils used to hearing and recognising the different endings. 4) Sentence Maker in Pairs - sheet with English on left and in blue, the French on right hand side. Cut up and give to pupils to match up as an activity. Either on tables or one set each to stick in books. Extension could be to change some of the details in the French sentences. 5) Sondage - survey for pupils to do around class, using information learned from pages 6 and 7. One grid to each child and they ask questions in French and note answers in English. The info they need to give in French is under the grid and there is a line, on which they can note the French they need to say, prior to beginning the survey. There are 30 grids, 2 to a page and the details under each grid are different. Some are more difficult than others and a few are quite easy, so you can differentiate accordingly. Good idea to practise pronunciation of the questions before they start. Extension - read back answers in the 'il/elle' form, if class able to do so.

GCSE French Photo description key phrases & helpful language. A* constructions.

GCSE French Photo description key phrases & helpful language. A* constructions.

A support sheet for pupils who are describing a photo in French. There are lots of useful phrases to help with describing the photo itself, as well as lots of complex language and A* constructions for pupils to include. The structures and language are in groups: phrases to introduce a photo, past tense expressions, weather phrases, A* constructions to include, useful connectives, opinion phrases etc. My own pupils have found this very useful and it provides an excellent scaffold for them producing high quality work.
