100 French worksheets for group speaking activities - 100 vocabulary themes

100 French worksheets for group speaking activities - 100 vocabulary themes

Use these French vocabulary building activities with groups of students who need to learn and practice specific vocabulary and what to say in everyday situations in French. 100 DIFFERENT SITUATIONS in which it is useful to have specific vocabulary are included. Each worksheet is only 25 cents! Use these 1 page worksheets all year with students at every level. They make for an easy, no prep lesson when you need to have a sub. I've also used this type of activity a lot with my French club. If you want your students to practice writing and would prefer to opt for a silent activity, why not use them in a fun game of SCOOT? With 100 worksheets you'll have more than enough to put different vocabulary themes on each desk. Instructions are included. Each of the 100 worksheets is only in French so they are perfect for both immersion and core French programs. The vocabulary themes are suitable for any age, from primary immersion through high school with traditional French as a second language kids. Each worksheet includes an image to illustrate the theme. There are several ways I like to use these worksheets which are fantastic bell ringers and ice breakers. I love to have them on hand at back to school and toward the end of the year to use as review. All 100 worksheets are also included in my French Ice-Breaker Bundle for Back to School SCOOT: Tape a different version of the worksheets to each desk or seat in your classroom. Choose vocabulary themes that your students should be familiar with. Students move around the classroom from seat to seat and will rotate through all of the worksheets. All students start at their own seat and take note of the worksheet they begin with. Students write something they would say in the chosen vocabulary theme and record their name next to it. They can’t repeat what another student has already written! When the teacher says BOUGEZ after a chosen amount of time (15 - 30 seconds or so will keep the game fast paced) students move to the next seat and start all over again with a different theme. Play the game until students make it to their original seat. It may be helpful to number the desks so that students will know which seat to move to next. You can always collect the sheets after the game to do a quick assessment if you wish. I’ve included an additional response sheet as the one page worksheet only has space for ten responses. SMALL GROUPS: Students work with partners or small groups to come up with short sentences using target vocabulary. Using the charts provided, students write down what they would say to the person indicated (doctor, postman, etc) and they write the name of the person who said it. Each person in the group says at least one thing. There is a one page worksheet for each of the vocabulary themes. I recommend printing them all out and putting them in a folder so that you have easy access when it’s time to photocopy

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 !

Research project (Motivational triggers) for KS3 French - Bon voyage  (Holidays) (AQA new spec)

Research project (Motivational triggers) for KS3 French - Bon voyage (Holidays) (AQA new spec)

This is a research project lesson (or two lessons really) that I created for my year 7 French students. The writing example can be easily adapted if more structures are to be added. The idea is to promote independent learning via research. Students have to research information about the place that they would like to visit (any place in world really but I encouraged to visit France). Students decide on the task and start researching relevant information about the chosen location using their iPads/ Chromebooks. At the same time they create a poster or a travel brochure with pop-up images (!!!) about the chosen location. During the second lesson they distribute the writing task bullet points in-between the members of the group and complete a piece of writing as per success criteria and model answer. In the end they stick their written notes (or attach them) to their poster /travel brochure. The whole process takes about 2 lessons and is perfect for the end of the topic as you can incorporate all of the structures / vocabulary learned during the term! Note: the writing example is oriented on the revision of tenses studied this year, holidays, weather and location vocabulary. Please let me know if you have any other ideas on how this project can be implemented. If you still have some time left you can enjoy few games I have inserted to simply have fun during the (possibly) last lesson of the year.
