FRENCH CHRISTMAS NUMBERS 0-31 CHALLENGE CARDS

FRENCH CHRISTMAS NUMBERS 0-31 CHALLENGE CARDS

PERFECT FOR CREATING A FESTIVE FEEL IN YOUR CLASSROOM AND IDEAL FOR DEVELOPING FRENCH LANGUAGE SKILLS AS WELL AS PRACTICING AND REVISING FRENCH NUMBERS 0-31! 36 CHALLENGE CARDS WITH RECORDING SHEET AND FULL ANSWER KEY! FRENCH NUMBERS 0-31 CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE CARDS really do help to create a lively language learning environment. Students can develop, embed, reinforce and refresh their knowledge of FRENCH numbers in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, independently of the teacher. They have a bonus multi-skill focus on listening, speaking, pronunciation, reading and spelling. They’re great for helping students familiarize themselves with, and develop competence in, speaking, reading, writing and spelling numbers in FRENCH. The cards are useful not only when you’re focusing on Numbers 0-31, but also as a starter, plenary and general ‘pick-me-up’ activity, as often as you can in lessons during the run-up to CHRISTMAS - the goal is not simply to learn how to count in FRENCH, but also to enjoy working with FRENCH, and to feel confident about doing so. The questions range in complexity and challenge, and are great for honing numeracy skills too - especially if calculators are not allowed! The questions and design provide lessons with a real festive feel - I’ve included a mini-reference list to help students with their FRENCH CHRISTMAS words - one or two per small group of students is sufficient. The cards do look great printed in colour, though I’ve also included a B&W version to help keep costs down. The resource comprises the following 6 files: * 2 sets of 36 challenge cards (colour/B&W), 4 per A4 (8.5 x 11) paper. Print, laminate and cut out. Depending on how long you want the activity to last for, choose a particular number of cards per small group of students, and place them in a tin, bowl or small box so that students can easily select a card, and then replace at the end of the activity. You can simply place all the cards in the bowl/box and let students work their way through, either in a single lesson, or across a series of lessons - I’ve found 10-15 minutes across several lessons can work really well. Students do need to remember to file their recording sheets carefully! * 2-page answer recording sheet (x2, colour/B&W). Best printed double-sided. * 2-page answer key (x2, colour/B&W), again best printed double-sided, and laminated for longevity. One answer key for each small group is sufficient. Students find this reference sheet really useful - download it for free here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/french-numbers-0-31-reference-sheet-11743634 The resource consists of 6 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 JOYEUX NOËL!

Advanced French Reading & Writing: Childéric I, Roi Des Francs (Livre Premier)

Advanced French Reading & Writing: Childéric I, Roi Des Francs (Livre Premier)

The story of the beloved Merovingian king Childéric I (440-481) was preserved by the druidic Bards of old France and is here retold in a flowing, pleasant style by Madame de Beaufort d’Hautpoul (1763-1837), a renowned woman of letters who was at the heart of Parisian literary society during the reign of Louis XVI. For educational purposes, this description of Childéric’s early years has been divided into two-page segments that are easy to read. Advanced French students are sure to enjoy this poetic and quick-paced historical tale. The language has been updated, though the original, distinctive style remains intact. Simple grammar review, translation, ‘résumé de texte’ and creative writing assignments follow each section alternately. Summary Childéric is the young and intrepid son of King Merovée and his beloved wife, Aboflède, around the year 430CE. Childéric lives happily with his loving parents and is beginning his education with druids, when he is tempted to join his father’s army in a battle against Attila the Hun. Despite being guarded by his king’s most valiant friend, Viomade, Childéric goes missing amidst the turmoil of the conflict. The faithful Viomade wishes to know what the boy’s fate truly was, and goes off with the king’s blessing in search of the young prince. Despite treachery by Draguta, a fellow follower of the king, Viomade finally finds Childéric, who has been cared for in the wilderness by an elderly Hun named Gelimer. Gelimer had lost his family and status, and was inspired to renounce his life as a warrior in order to devote his final years to raising the young boy he found on a battlefield. The old blind man loves Childéric devotedly and does not know that he is heir to a throne. After Gelimer’s death, Childéric returns to France with Viomade where a traitor is about to be crowned king. It was presumed, due to their lengthy absence, that Childéric and Viomade had been lost forever. Just in time, the young prince is reunited with his father and fulfills the hopes of all Francs as the rightful heir to the throne.

French Christmas Interactive Book

French Christmas Interactive Book

This is an interactive French Christmas Book. It works via the click of a mouse. It would be engaging for secondary school children and adults alike. I have set it out in to paragraphs or learning rooms:- vocab, sentences, paragraph, exercise and dictation. It works through the target language gradually building as you work your way through the rooms. My son and I have also dictated the content to give an authentic (my son) French accent, or nearly (me). This is the first book game I have created and I would be very much interested in your feedback on it or suggestions for future topics. Kindest regards and enjoy. Merry Christmas
