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 :)
One Page Learning Mat: the Basics

One Page Learning Mat: the Basics

(7)
A fantastic support for the first few lessons. Print and laminate and use as a learning mat to boost confidence amongst new learners in the classroom. Great differentiation technique when dealing with mixed ability classes. Use it as a speaking frame / a writing frame / a learning mat / a revision aid / an extension tool. The PDF is in colour but looks nice printed in greyscale as well. I usually print and photocopy in greyscale but put the colour version on the IWB.

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.
Tour de France: design your own jersey
betsybelleteach

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.
