French Valentine's Game

French Valentine's Game

Distribute hearts to all pupils and they have to find their matching heart. Game 1 is matching names eg. Tu es Barack Obama, trouve Michelle. (Other half = Tu es Michelle). Game 2 is matching places eg. Tu veux visiter New York. (Other half = Tu habites a New York). Game 3 is matching hobbies eg. Tu aimes faire du sport. (Other half = tu es sportif). Game 4 is matching food eg. Tu aimes la cuisine italienne. (Other half = tu aimes la pizza). There are 16 matching pairs (32 halves) in each game but if your class is bigger i have included spare hearts for you to add your own. If your class is smaller simply leave some pairs out. The hearts are backed in colour for differentiation (tell pupils their matching half shares the same background colour.) Or print on in black and white to increase challenge. Make it more romantic by playing French love songs in the background as they circulate and only stop when the music pauses. Or tell them it is like speed dating and they need to find their matching heart before the music stops. Reward pupils for any French interaction you hear as they circulate the room.

French Greetings Bundle

French Greetings Bundle

All you will need for a strong and engaging first lesson with your new classes. That first lesson back can be a bit flat because they resources for greetings and simple questions and answers can be pretty dull. Whether you buy this bundle to use with beginner learners or as a refresher lesson for new classes, you won't be disappointed. I have included a great video with music and robots for immediate impact- pop it on as they walk in. The PowerPoint introduces the vocab so you can drill and then includes some classic language games and a chance for you to get them to listen and match up (and copy the lang into their books if you wish). There is a 'one page learning' great for differentiation, as a support tool, a revision sheet, homework, learning mat...whatever you like! An interactive quiz for a snappy start or memorable exit game and two versions of follow me cards (small class or large class). Second PowerPoint to introduce days of week and months of year also included. GREAT VALUE!!! Please consider leaving a review :)

French Board Game: Tour de France (plus free video)

French Board Game: Tour de France (plus free video)

A fun and cultural activity for the summer term. 2 versions of this tour of France which replicates the 2017 route. Pupils start in Dusseldorf and finish in Paris. The simple version is simply a race to get to the Arc de Triomphe the fastest, the second version requires pupils to move backwards and forwards several spaces if they land on a hilly or mountainous stage. I have included mini certificates/medals in the shape of a jersey. 1st place is yellow, 2nd green, 3rd spotty and 4th white. There is also a sheets of mini jerseys in many colours which you may wish to use as counters. I must stress that this game requires no use of French but it will be perfect for teachers planning to do a cultural lesson on the Tour de France. All you need to provide is the dice and you can sit back and watch the pupils work independently, collaboratively and competitively. any other board games available, just scroll through my shop or search 'French Board Games' and look for Betsy Belle products. Thank you for your purchase!

French: Les Fruits Smoothie Challenge (NEW extra: les fruits PowerPoint)

French: Les Fruits Smoothie Challenge (NEW extra: les fruits PowerPoint)

*NEW EXTRA: I have added a fruit PowerPoint to bring more value to the resource. * Pupils race against the clock and each other to find the meaning of 22 fruits. Task 1: work on your won to find as many of the words as you can in the allocated time (teacher to set classroom timer and provide dictionaries). Task 2: work with a partner to share answers in the allocated time. Task 3: circulate the classroom and exchange words with others in an attempt to fill in the blanks (at this point I offer my own services and offer one exchange with each pupil- they have usually left the trickier ones to the end and might need you to support in this way in order to translate all 22). Most are fruit, some are liquids- enabling them to create a simple but delicious fruit smoothie. Task 4: select 5 ingredients for a fruit smoothie (you could reward the winner). Great for developing dictionary skills; increasing vocabulary; encouraging pupil interaction and using language creatively. 3 sheets are provided- 2 in colour (a pink version and a blue version) and 1 in black and white.

French Presentation: Family la famille

French Presentation: Family la famille

Slides 1-8: Introduce and practise vocabulary. You could also print these slides off to use as flashcard games or wall displays. Slide 9: All family members on one slide to consolidate followed by intro of possessive pronouns. Slide 10: Reading. Short paragraph of Juliette describing who is in her family. You could follow this up with question to your pupils ‘qui est dans ta famille?’ Pupils use Juliette’s paragraph as a model. Slide 11 Family tree. You could use this for Q&A. eg. ‘Comment s’appelle le père de Juliette?’ ‘Il s’appelle David’. Slide 12. Extra vocabulary. Taking pupils beyond the immediate family to include aunts and uncles, step-sisters etc. I find that it is too long-winded to teach this in a ‘drilling’ fashion so I would go through it as it is displayed in a table on the IWB and then print off as a reference sheet- particularly useful for pupils with large families. Slide 13. ‘Les mots volants’ game. This is a chance for pupils to participate and let off a bit of steam. As the words ‘fly’ onto the board they shout them out in English. I love doing this as a whole class as it really builds confidence and enthusiasm but you could shout an individual’s name out in between words or use lollipop sticks to pick a different pupil each time. Slide 14. ‘Qu’est-ce qui manque?’ game. I usually ask pupils to identify the word that has disappeared and tell me both the French and Englsih equivalent. You could still play as a whole class by letting the group call out the French word as it disappears and you following up with ‘and what does it mean?’ Slide 15. ‘Qui suis-je?’ Reading comprehension with famous families. Answers appear on the click. Slide 16. Listening grid. This is very simple because most of us have access to excellent listening material but it just gives you a quick to chance to assess aural comprehension at word level. Grt pupils to writr 1-6 on mini whiteboards or in books and you choose six of the words to say, they write down the corresponding letter. You could always increase the level of challenge by including the word in a short sentence. Slide 17. Noughts and crosses. You could use this as an exit game or as refresher the following lesson. Choose two individuals or play boys v girls. Or teacher v class.
