This lesson aims to build students' confidence tackling photo card tasks in both writing and speaking. It introduces them to the PALM structure- People, Action, Location and Mood. This way students aren't stuck with what to say about the photo. It also briefly recaps the present tense for -er verbs as I often find my students write "ils sont manger" or "il est regarder" when describing photos, when the present progressive does not exist in French.
This worksheet is ideal for setting as a cover lesson or homework project. There are a range of tasks such as a photo task, reading comprehension and translation from French to English. The worksheet culminates in an extended project where students describe their ideal house using the conditional tense- support given.
This lesson uses the traditional French song “Vive le vent” to focus on listening and transcription skills as well as a focus on phonics. A perfect lesson to end the term that still has an important skills focus.
