Colouring activity reinforcing French colours for weaker groups. Could also be used for numeracy skills - teacher could ask questions eg red + light blue. Pupils refer to légende & give correct answer in French. Please let me know if you have any problems downloading - I created this resource in Word, but all the numbers seemed to move once I uploaded it, so I created the PDF document instead. Preview looks fine.
OOPS - absolutely NOTHING to do with French! Just a TWO SIDED Christmas puzzle / activity sheet for your last lesson with your French group or your tutor group!! (You can edit the Christmas message to fit your own class.)
Teaches pupils the basic vocab necessary to book a hotel room. Several activities including reading hotel adverts, paired and group speaking activities, link to a YouTube clip of a woman booking in at hotel reception and a GCSE reading exam question. Some slides have links to activities - I have uploaded the linked activities in case the links don't work. The past exam question has rubrics / questions in French to fit in with the new style GCSE exam. Copy also included with rubrics / questions in English.
Text - exploit it in lots of ways - - Give 'em a mini-highlighter (10 for a quid down Asda!) - highlight what they know. - Work in pairs translating different sections of the text then feedback to class explaining how they worked various bits out. - pick out different grammar points - connectives, opinions, quantifiers etc etc.
Just a couple of little Easter activities! 'Ave &'em if they are any good!!! :)
1st slide - starter activity - crack the code to work out the Xmas words 2nd slide has 4 baubles - click on each one in turn : Bauble 1 = powerpoint teaching pupils about French Christmas Bauble 2 = Who wants to be a millionaire game based on what they've learned Bauble 3 = Match up activity and wordsearch using vocabulary they have learned Bauble 4 - Just takes you to the next screen - click on the squares to reveal a picture connected with French Christmas. Prize for 1st pupil to explain what the picture is. 3rd slide has a plenary - pupil comes to front, moves a bauble to reveal a word they have met in the lesson - prize if they can say something about the word. Powerpoints etc included separately in case the links don't work!!
Pupils GO MAD for this and just want to play it every lesson!! Girls v. boys. One pupil nominates a box they know the answer to .. if they give a correct answer, click on the box and a number of points is revealed ....... or a MONKEY (In which case the team lose all their points) ....or 2 ARROWS (in which case the teams SWAP points). OMG mad for it!!!!!! Enjoy. (Can't take ALL the credit, a colleague gave me the original but I've added the questions for this version). :)
Pupils each have a card, which they do not show to anyone else. They must then walk around the room, find a partner and say the French sentence from their card. Their partner tells them what it means in English. If they are correct, the partner reads THEIR French sentence, and their partner must tell them what it means in English. If they both get the English correct, they swap cards and move on to find another partner and repeat. 'Ave it!! :) (They can stick the vocab in their books after the activity and write English meanings).
A simple but effective system for creating an ordered, fun classroom! Your first lesson in September! Start as you mean to go on! How to negotiate rules and enforce them and get your classes on side! Only effective with a determined, consistent and, at times, bloody minded attitude from the ref!! Good luck! Each slide has notes with suggestions as to how to implement the strategy. Some parts can be customised to ensure your strategy fits in with whole school policies.
I stuck the 2 sheets onto a large sheet of A2 paper and got pupils to work in groups of 3/4. They had learned some personal qualities prior to doing the group work. The next lesson they wrote personalised paragraphs, but the group work really helped to build their skills / knowledge beforehand.
Summer holiday vocabulary wordsearch. Words are listed in English so pupils have to use research tools to find out the French before finding them in the wordsearch. Perfect for that last lesson of the year!!! :) I've included 3 different formats so hopefully everyone can access it.
N.B. For slide 9 to work, you need to link it to the 2nd resource (Filles v. garcons powerpoint). To play this game, just keep pressing N or right arrow on keyboard to rotate the questions -wherever it stops, the team must answer that question to get a point!! Or play one girl v. one boy & give winner a sweet. Yes.....bribery......if it works do it!!! 34 years tells me it works!!! :)
Pupils each have a copy of both sheets - cut out the pictures, do the sums and stick the correct part of the picture on top of the sums to create a festive picture which can then be coloured.
Just some fun for your last lesson before Christmas! Pupils put their hands up to offer a co-ordinate - teacher (or a chosen pupil) clicks on the corresponding box to reveal either a frowny face or a Christmas pud! If pupil finds a pud, they get a sweet! This activity can be used to practise French numbers and alphabet or as a maths activity linking to co-ordinates topic. Three different versions are included and the letters / numbers can be edited to raise level of challenge.
