French Verbs - First Conjugation (with and without spelling changes) Grammar Worksheets

French Verbs - First Conjugation (with and without spelling changes) Grammar Worksheets

This resource consists of two worksheets on regular -er verbs following the standard pattern (like ‘parler’) and four on -er verbs with changes in spelling (like ‘manger, lancer, promener, jeter, préférer’). A brief explanation and two practice exercises are provided on each sheet. Probably best used for work in exercise books. Although the material could be suitable for more able KS2 pupils, it is best used for KS3 and GCSE.

French Regular Verbs (4 types): interactive word generator.

French Regular Verbs (4 types): interactive word generator.

This presentation was designed to enhance classroom practice of French regular verbs. The target conjugation is chosen from the drop-down menu, the ‘allons-y’ button generates a new verb and a button is clicked to spin the subject selector. Pupils then write down (on white boards preferably) the form of the verb that matches the subject. Teaching points or answers can be typed on the on-screen board. Work can be saved at the end if desired. Any tense can be practised with this activity. The conjugations available via the drop down menu are -er verbs, -ir verbs, -re verbs, and -er verbs involving spelling changes. In order for the interactive features to work, you will need to enable macros on your computer when prompted.

Creative Writing Resource: Shared Writing Lesson

Creative Writing Resource: Shared Writing Lesson

This is a customisable resource for English designed to get the creative juices flowing. A list of random words (choice of 2 - 5) is generated and pupils are challenged to come up with ways of including all of them in a piece of collaborative writing. As the class comes up with ideas, the teacher records them by typing on the onscreen board. The work can be saved at the end of the session. If pupils are not used to this kind of exercise, I suggest beginning with the 2 word sentence option. Challenge them to make sentences that make links between the words. You can move on to the other options in the menu as they become more confident… Although designed for use in English classes, this resource can easily be adapted for other subjects and for whole school sessions like assemblies. It is great for CPD too (safeguarding training, for instance). The PowerPoint file is stored in a folder with a text file named ‘words’. By replacing the words on this list by your own, the words generated on the screen can be related to any topic you like. Make sure that you keep the text file and the PowerPoint file together, however, or the nothing work. I have included a separate folder with three extra word lists (summer, adjectives, and synonyms for ‘said’). If you decide to use them, you need to rename them as ‘words’ and swap them with the original file in the main folder. You need to enable macros on your computer to use the resource, otherwise nothing will happen!

French: Animals.  PowerPoint lesson and worksheets

French: Animals. PowerPoint lesson and worksheets

A bright and interactive PowerPoint presentation to enable pupils to begin building sentences and conduct simple conversations. It covers the first and second person singular of ‘avoir’ so that children are able to ask for and give information about their pets. It also deals with the masculine and feminine singular of adjectives including possessives (mon/ma; ton/ta). There is an accompanying vocabulary sheet, which needs to be studied before embarking on the paired and group conversation activities suggested in the presentation. Several worksheets accompany the PowerPoint: a crossword and word search to support the learning of essential vocabulary, a cloze exercise based on a simple text to be tackled as pupils progress towards sentence work, and finally, a written exercise where the task is to continue a conversation about pets between two friends.

French Beginners  Classroom Jeopardy Game

French Beginners Classroom Jeopardy Game

Based on the brilliant template by Kevin Dufendach which I have adapted for the UK, this is a substantial classroom game for 8 players or teams. There are 6 single jeopardy topics (clothes, food, regular -er verbs, Easter, numbers, common words) and six grammar-based double jeopardy topics. The final jeopardy question has a betting component where contestants can win or lose as much as they like. There is an optional timer at the bottom of the question slides, and upbeat music that could really get on the your nerves (turn the volume down!). You probably need to allow about half an hour to get through to the end. Instructions and optional settings are included, as is a link to the Excel template which you could use to make your own version of the game. Make sure you enable macros on your computer, or none of it will work! Do leave feedback, as it’s really helpful in preparing future games!

Add and Spell PowerPoint Game

Add and Spell PowerPoint Game

Fun whole class PowerPoint activity for primary or KS3 classes: English with a bit of maths. Great for starters or plenaries. Teacher calls out a number (eg 12) which is the sum of two digits showing on the screen. Pupils choose two numbers (eg 8 + 4) that add up to the teacher’s number and, if correct, they turn those two cards to reveal two letters. As more letters are revealed, the spelling begins: pupils make as many words as they can. They are scored according to the number of letters they contain. The teacher may decide to set a minimum word length. The maths element can be made more difficult for more able classes ( eg '12 is the product of of which two numbers? ’ - Pupils could choose 4 and 3, 6 and 2, 12 and 1). Or it can be omitted entirely, and pupils simply select numbers to turn. There are 8 games included in the PowerPoint. And some frantic music. Turn your computer sound down if it gets too much!
