Cover work

Cover work

15 cover work sheets covering a variety of topics. Activities include translation, writing, recognising words and word patterns. These can be used for students with some experience in French year 7-9. They are designed to leave with the cover supervisor or cover teacher who has little or no knowledge of French. They have answer sheets with them and each one should keep the students busy for at least 30 minutes, depending on ability.

French Writing Journal

French Writing Journal

Bulletin Journals are a creative and fun way to engage students in writing. Taking inspiration from Pinterest, I put together these four sheets which cover topics such as : Food/drink, chores, school subjects, daily routine, holidays (past and future) then a more creative sheet where students fill their 'Happiness Box' (with nouns) and list the things they would like to learn (using verbs). I plan to use this as a Writing Assessment. There is scope for all levels of ability in this task. The pages can be used individually or as a booklet. I plan to use the 'Ma Vie' sheet as the 1st page and the ' Boîte à Bonheur' sheet as the back page with the other two sheets in the middle. I have now added the assessment sheet to accompany the journal.
