French: the basics Follow Me Cards 'I have Who has'

French: the basics Follow Me Cards 'I have Who has'

35 unique cards covering the basics including greetings, first questions and responses, days of the week and months of the year. Distribute the cards. The person with 'DEBUT' begins and asks the first question 'Qui a bonjour?' this prompts the next person who has the phrase 'J'ai bonjour' written on their card. They shout this out followed by their own question, 'Qui a au revoir?' The game continues like this until the last person ends with 'La Fin!' Excellent for vocabulary consolidation and to inject energy into the lesson. Gets pupils interacting and speaking and listening. Brilliant for revision lessons for all year groups.

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 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.
