Shakespeare starter tasks for every subject!

Shakespeare starter tasks for every subject!

I’ve designed this for the whole school, specifically to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday. There are some video links for students to watch but there should be a link to each subject (apart from ICT - apologies) The idea is that students are made aware of the idea that Shakespeare is applicable to every subject and not just English. There are also form time activities for students to complete with tutors.

Magic square on French regular RE-verb conjugation practice no prep practice

Magic square on French regular RE-verb conjugation practice no prep practice

Students locate different conjugated forms of the verbs attendre, défendre, perdre and entendre and put the corresponding number in the correct square. Once they have located all verb forms and every square has a number in it, they sum up the numbers. If the numbers add up to 34 horizontally, vertically and diagonally, it means everything is correct. If it doesn’t, they have to find the error and correct it so that the numbers add up to 34. 34 is the magic number! My students love solving magic squares. Enjoy!

Je porte - Vêtements - Card Game

Je porte - Vêtements - Card Game

This game is a French version of the classic " I have… Who has …? " game, designed to practice the names of the clothes, the colours, the agreement between nouns and adjectives and the verb “wear”. This is an easy-to-play game and a great way to practice essential language concepts with the whole class. As students match up the answers on their cards with questions on other students’ cards, they get valuable practice with vocabulary, as well as reading and listening skills. Directions: Cut out the cards along the dotted line and laminate. For bigger classes, you might want to print several copies of each set. Give out all the cards in the set to the students. It is important to use all the cards. Choose a student to go first. I usually do that by a counting rhyme. Have the selected student read the question at the bottom of the card aloud and then put the card down. The student who has the card with the answer then reads that answer aloud. This student will then read the question at the bottom of their card and put the card down. Play continues in this fashion until all of the cards have been played. The game will end with the same student who started play. Every card in the set is connected to a card before it and a card after it. To keep the game moving at a quick pace, all students need to pay attention to every question that has been asked. I tell my younger students that this is a magic game and that the magic only works if you pay attention, which is actually true. The magic happens in the end, when the question on the last card actually matches the answer on the very first card. Enjoy!
