Expo 2 Vert - Year 8 French - Module 1 'Salut' Famille et Domicile. 5 resources for a full lesson.

5 resources, covering different skills, which can be used to create a whole lesson. All resources are intended for use with Expo 2 VERT, although could be adapted for Rouge. 1) Starter gap-fill - good starter for revision from key language covered in Year 7 and then revised on Page 6 of Expo 2 Vert. Could be done before or after the exercises on that page. 2) Reading Grid for Page 7, exercise 4 - texts to read in exercise book. There are 2 grids with Easier and More Difficult Levels. Easy one is multiple choice and other one requires answers in English. Pupils can then stick grids in books. 3) Personality Agreement Grid - Revision of Etre and some key personality adjectives from Expo 1. They are the ones used on page 7 in Expo 2 Vert. Rules explained and pupils have to fill in some feminine endings, following patterns and also need to give the English. Can do a quick Q&A of this afterwards, to get pupils used to hearing and recognising the different endings. 4) Sentence Maker in Pairs - sheet with English on left and in blue, the French on right hand side. Cut up and give to pupils to match up as an activity. Either on tables or one set each to stick in books. Extension could be to change some of the details in the French sentences. 5) Sondage - survey for pupils to do around class, using information learned from pages 6 and 7. One grid to each child and they ask questions in French and note answers in English. The info they need to give in French is under the grid and there is a line, on which they can note the French they need to say, prior to beginning the survey. There are 30 grids, 2 to a page and the details under each grid are different. Some are more difficult than others and a few are quite easy, so you can differentiate accordingly. Good idea to practise pronunciation of the questions before they start. Extension - read back answers in the 'il/elle' form, if class able to do so.

Introducing brothers and sisters in French

Introducing brothers and sisters in French

Closely aligned to Kerboodle/OUP GCSE French 9-1 foundation text book - if you aren't a subscriber, or don't have the text book and audio, there will be some activities you won't be able to do (eg. working on transcripts and setting homework). This is for a Year 9 French class, with many students having special needs. If you have students who struggle to remember language, this series of lessons contains lots of practice activities that ultimately help students a) organise what they've learnt into a script, b) recognise, ask and answer questions such as 'What's your name?', 'Do you have any brothers and sisters?' and 'How old are they?' and c) do all of this with decreasing reliance on support materials. Because there's so much practice, these lessons could suit younger students who are new to French. There's a lesson overview in the notes page of Slide 1 and then further tips in the notes section of subsequent slides. I buy my buzzers from Classroom Resources, who sell on Amazon. These are one of my best investments - students in every year love playing the game, including Year 13!

French - Animals Follemathiques

French - Animals Follemathiques

Instead of saying “2 plus 3”, the teacher says “la grenouille plus le poisson”. Pupils reply with “le chien”. Make the sums as easy or as difficult as you like. If you use longer sums, remember to write it down as you go along and tell the pupils to do the same.

French - Animal sounds

French - Animal sounds

Use this PPT to introduce the sounds that common animals make. Essentially, it's a way of using and practising the sound-spelling patterns in French.

Les animaux - le coq: symbol

Les animaux - le coq: symbol

This is a great way to introduce a bit of the French culture (as well as the numeracy component) when teaching about animals / animal sounds. You could ask students to read the text then to fill in the blank/write their own description on the timeline sheet. This is just an activity I have assembled but the way you want to teach it is up to you. I personally like to introduce the animal sounds then focus on the use of "cocorico" and then its origin.
