French 'Tout sur moi' All about me sheet- End of Year or First Lesson Back activity

(3)
Great end of year activity especially for pupils who enjoy doodling and making things look pretty- this is surely a winner for a gel pen fan! It would also make a great first lesson 3 slides included Pre-populated poster with answers filled in. A version with questions written at the top of each box for pupils to respond to An empty version without the question so pupils have autonomy over content. This is also editable so you can amend the language according to your year group and topic. Simply add text boxes over the box and put your own question in. Two word mats are also included to support pupils with vocabulary they probably should know but maybe haven’t used since September/October and they want some kind of reference! These make great start of topic glossaries or learning homework sheets as well so print and use next year.

2 versions of this Near Future Tense board game: Game 1 is all in the first person Je vais écouter, je vais danser etc. Game 2 is a range of pronouns Elle va manger, ils vont jouer etc. Answers for each version are included so pupils can assess each other and work completely independently of the teacher. Bright and attractive. Educational. Great for collaboration. A fun twist in revision. Good extension task- why not print them off and stick them in a plastic wallet on the wall for pupils to come and play when finished main activity. Minimal prep: If you forget to bring dice pupils can play with a coin: move forward 2 spaces for heads, 1 space for tails. They can use a tiny scrap of paper for a counter.

They are all accessible and if you would like to add more complex/advanced questions there is a blank template for you to simply add a text boxes with more age/stage appropriate questions.

French Months and Seasons: Seasons Wheel
betsybelleteach

French Months and Seasons: Seasons Wheel

(1)
A great craft activity to reinforce learning of days of the week and seasons. Included in this resource are two slides to introduce the months of the year and the seasons in French. Following this there is a craft activity- pupils cut out the seasons wheel and the arrow. They place the arrow over the wheel and secure with a split pin. The pupils may colour the pictures and letters and other sections in the wheel. I got my pupils to write the days of the week on the back as well. Now they keep it in their trays and we start the day by writing the date in French.
