GCSE French Role Play: At the Tourist Office Video

GCSE French Role Play: At the Tourist Office Video

(1)
A whitebaord animation video to challenge pupils to translate the role play related sentences that appear on screen before the ‘floating hand’ translates for them. This is to practise rather than introduce the vocabulary. I recommend purchasing this powerpoint https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/gcse-french-role-play-at-the-tourist-office-presentation-and-games-11875982 to accomplany the video if you want to introduce or revise the vocab needed for the tourist office.
French Greetings Bundle

French Greetings Bundle

8 Resources
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 Easter Board Game Paques

(6)
A board game to practise vocabulary for Easter. Pupils roll the dice and say the French for the picture they land on. Extra challenge given as they progress through the game and have to describe the pictures and give opinions. Great lead on from my Easter PowerPoint. Great speaking and listening practice. Increased enthusiasm and engagement. Adds dimension of competition. Could be used as a reward for early finishes. This resource is available as part of an Easter bundle, saving you money.
French: the basics Follow Me Cards 'I have Who has'

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

(4)
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 Presentation: Family la famille
betsybelleteach

French Presentation: Family la famille

(1)
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.

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

(5)
*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 Descriptions Worksheet

French Descriptions Worksheet

(0)
The second in a series of ‘doodle’ sheets. These sheets include a comprehension page where the boxes have been filled with text so teachers can use as a reading activity and pupils can use as a model for writing. These second page has empty boxes for pupils to write their own answers in. Also included are two one page learning sheets with lots of the vocab pupils will need to complete the task. The design is an important feature- I am trying to create something that will appeal to pupils aesthetically- something they will take their time with and take pride in. I am working on a whole series of them- this is only the third- more on the way! Any requests are welcomed at betsybelleteachesfrench@hotmail.com I have provided you with 3 font options: the one displayed in the preview (my fave!), good old comic sans and a French handwriting font.
French Board Game: Sports
betsybelleteach

French Board Game: Sports

(0)
A game board to practise nouns and simple sentences. 2 versions included for differentiation purposes. Answer key included (so pupils work independently). Great to introduce sports in a novel way- give them the board game and a dictionary and it is a really fun way to challenge them to learn sports nouns. Use it as follow up once you have introduced the vocabulary as it is an excellent way of practising speaking and listening skills. Other important features: pupil independence, pupil collaboration, challenge and competition. I always have 100% engagement when I give them a board game (I have others available). A rewarding way to differentiate- what better incentive to complete the task than to know you can play a game at the end! No need to cut anything- just print. A4 is fine, A3 is great. Add dice and counters. (I get pupils to use spare coins for counters and lots of them have dice roll app on their phones these days if you are struggling for these). Any feedback is always gratefully received and if you have any requests for future board games please send me a message.
