No et moi * Aidons-nous du film * Booklet + MS * New A-level * NEW!!

No et moi * Aidons-nous du film * Booklet + MS * New A-level * NEW!!

No et moi * Aidons-nous du film * Booklet + MS * New A-level * NEW!! A complete study guide of the first 26 chapters of the book No et moi using the film as a support. Ideal to help your student have a clear chronology of the book in their head with the help of visuals from the film. These resources include: - Two starter activities with appealing worksheets to approach the movie - A study booklet for students with pictures from the movie to guide them through the chronology of the book. (students need to make precise references to the book with quotes) - A worksheet with titles linked to the student booklet - An answer booklet which can be used as a complete study booklet of the first 26 chapters of the book. All the quotes and references you need to teach are written for you. References to specific pages are also given. (You will need to have 'Le Livre de Poche' version of the book) Teaching tips: I gave this booklet to my students at the end of Year 1 of the French A-level after having studied the first 26 chapters with them. I noticed that some of them were struggling with the chronology and the precise order of scenes in the book or where to find quotes. This booklet has helped them greatly to have a clear vision of the book and they now have all the references that they need to write their essay. You will need about 4 hours to complete this booklet with your students but they can be given some questions to answer at home and the first half of the movie to watch at home too to save time in class. I will create a second booklet soon to cover the second half of the movie and the book! Keep checking my shop for new updates! :-) Plenty more resources on No et moi in my shop! I will soon add more resources on the book so please do not hesitate to visit my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/MllePierre I hope you will enjoy my resources and if you have a question on a particular slide or activity, please do not hesitate to contact me or leave me a message.

French Jokes and Thinking Skills

French Jokes and Thinking Skills

This is a resource that I use for GCSE students or able KS3 students. It is a useful way to get students into thinking about translation and by allowing students to work out the meanings of the jokes in small groups, the activity allows differentiation and peer to peer interaction. Some groups respond better to this activity if they have a small vocabulary sheet to aid them. Although there is no direct link to the curriculum, this is a fun activity which could be used as a starter or as a bit of fun 'real world' French.
