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). :)
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.
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).
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.
Boys v. girls - one team chooses a box and if they give right answer teacher clicks on that box to reveal a number of points ... OR a MONKEY (lose all your points) ... OR 2 arrows symbol (teams swap scores) ... OR a minus number of points!!! Just a bit of fun for the end of term! :)
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!!
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.
Just one slide...click on the 8 cinema tickets and a film theme will play. (Pictures are incidental ... they don't match with the music excerpts). Pupils have previously been taught film genres - they must note the correct genre as they listen to each theme. Could also be used to reinforce adjectives for describing films? Scroll to bottom of screen to find answers.
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 an Easter picture which can then be coloured! Smartboard slide gives instructions for pupils to follow.
Pupils are given a copy of the vocab list on last slide of powerpoint.
They are then shown a series of images with a choice of 3 emotions and asked to show red/amber/green card to show which emotion they think is shown in the images. (Our pupils' planners have RAG pages - they could use different coloured pens / objects instead?)
Later slides offer no choice of emotions, but encourage pupils to write an emotion on a whiteboard instead.
Depending on ability of class pupils could be encouraged to write whole sentences rather than single words.
First screen - click on the deaf fella icon and soundfile should play. If not, I've included the MP3 (thanks to Mary Glasgow!). Click on the white boxes and correct answers will be revealed. transcript on screen 2.
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!!! :)
