GCSE French Role Play: Video 'At the Hotel'

GCSE French Role Play: Video 'At the Hotel'

(3)
This is a link to my You Tube channel where you will find a whiteboard animation video. This is great to use in class with the pupils- can they translate te sentences quicker than the pen? They could write them down or say them out loud? A fabulous task to set as revision as well- pupils more inclined to watch a you tube video to music (I have great stats evidence for previous year’s videos - by analysing the demographics I know that thousands of pupils watched my video in the week before the French exams!) More topics on the way. There is a bundle of activities for this topic here https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/gcse-french-role-play-task-at-the-hotel-11874119

Tour de France: design your own jersey

Tour de France: design your own jersey

(5)
Pupils design their own Tour de France jersey and then use the vocabulary provided to describe it eg. 'C'est un maillot multicolore à slogan. Tu portes ce maillot avec un short ou un jogging. N'oublie pas d'ajouter des lunettes de soleil et un bandeau.' This activity is great for pupils who aren't particularly interested on the sporting event to engage in something more creative and use language effectively to describe their design. Other Tour de France activities include a free video, a board game and some colouring sheets.

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

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.

A song to the tune of Jingle Bells for beginner learners. Chorus: ‘Qu’est-ce que c’est? De quelle couleur? Il y a combien?’ And 10 lines for individual pupils to shout out ‘une etoile jaune’, ‘sept chausettes roses’ etc. Good practice of colours and numbers and a lovely way for KS1 learners to demonstrate what they have learnt- could even be performed in an assembly.

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.

French Vocabulary Mat: Cafe and Restaurant (plus mini clouds activity)

(1)
All you need for teaching café vocabulary and restaurant vocabulary on one A4 page: use it as a learning mat; a homework sheet; a support sheet; an extension sheet; a revision sheet or a classroom poster...endless possibilities. Also included: Mini word clouds- excellent starter activity. Great for revision as well. Could give out as an extension tool for early finishers. Give them out upon arrival and give them a time frame. At the end of the timeframe pupils go head to head in a 'bidding war'. Each pupil says how many they can translate and have to prove it. The highest bidder goes first- if he can get to his bid he wins, if he can't the next bidder goes and has to get to his highest bid to win.
