French Christmas Song: Les Douze Jours de Noël

French Christmas Song: Les Douze Jours de Noël

Great Christmas song as it consolidates numbers and is a good introduction to ordinal numbers. Powerpoint 1 introduces the vocabulary. Powerpoint 2 accompanies Worksheets 1 and 2. The resources break down the vocabulary by working on numbers then nouns. You can teach each day individually with Powerpoint 1 before adding the full verses with Powerpoint 2. There is also a link to Youtube video to sing along to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yB8dzktiBm4 . There is a PDF file with the song in full as well as a wordsearch. I divide the class into groups with each group ‘owning’ a day or several days depending on the size of the class. You can have a competition between odd numbers and even numbers. I have also in the past had the class find out which nouns are masculine and feminine then split the ‘gifts’ between girls and boys. It can also lead to craft and/or drama activities.

FRENCH CHRISTMAS WORD SEARCHES

FRENCH CHRISTMAS WORD SEARCHES

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING FRENCH LANGUAGE SKILLS WITH A FESTIVE FEEL! Mots Cachés are a fabulous way of encouraging students to engage with the written word in FRENCH, refreshing and reinforcing language as they complete the grids. This set features ten differentiated word searches, with each consecutive grid increasing in challenge. It focuses on 30 FRENCH CHRISTMAS WORDS, which will also help to develop students’ awareness of some Francohphone Christmas traditions and figures, such as Saint Nicholas and Père Fouettard. There are 5 FRENCH to ENGLISH grids, where students are prompted with the FRENCH words, and look for them in FRENCH in the grid. For additional consolidation, each grid also features an ENGLISH word list that they have to complete, really putting their knowledge to the test! There are also 5 ENGLISH to FRENCH grids, where the prompt words are given in ENGLISH, and learners have to find the FRENCH equivalent in the grid. For additional consolidation and practice in writing and spelling in FRENCH, they also complete the FRENCH word list on each page. Students can tell in which direction the words are written by looking at the arrow key on each grid. There is an answer grid for each word search, so that students can check their answers - or use for a little extra help if they need it. The word searches are in landscape format, as this mirrors the common direction of reading from left to right, facilitating learner engagement with the activity. I’ve included a FRENCH-English reference sheet - you can either laminate this to share around small groups of students, or give one to each student to stick into their learning workbooks as a general reference resource. Students will have to look carefully at some of the words they’re looking for, as they may appear slightly differently - for example, they may have to find ‘AN ELF’ and work out what that is in FRENCH - only the prompt LES LUTINS appears in the reference list. Use as starters, refreshers, plenaries or fun-time fillers at any time during the CHRISTMAS season. Students do like the challenge of working their way through a number of grids on one go! There are two versions of the word searches and keys - either with a colour or B&W background — you may prefer to print in B&W to keep prep costs down. Laminate the answer keys if you can - they’ll last for many CHRISTMASTIMES to come! The resource consists of five non-editable files. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only. MERCI BEAUCOUP ET JOYEUX NOËL!
