French - Personality Narrow Reading

(0)
Here you’ll find a narrow reading activity and a sentence builder to describe people’s personalities. I have included some potential extension tasks to keep earlier finishers engaged. There is some nice language here to help boost writing grades. The preview shows the questions of the reading task. There are three similar texts as well as a find the French for activity. I have included a differentiated activity with the same texts - the questions are more structured. You can find the sentence builder here if you don’t need the reading activity. Please let me know what you think about my resources. I enjoy making them but they are time consuming so I like knowing if it is worth it :)
French Imperfect Tense Quiz

French Imperfect Tense Quiz

(2)
Here is a PowerPoint quiz I have created to reinforce the imperfect tense with my National 5 French class. May be of use to others as well. The quiz is designed in such a way that the only way to move forward is using the buttons on the slides. Choose an answer, and the happy face (right answer) or the sad face (wrong answer) will appear. Click on return and then go to the next question. Questions are numbered at the top left.

French - Personalities Sentence Builder

(4)
Here is a sentence builder I designed to enable learners to accurately describe personalities. On side one there is vocabulary to describe one’s own personality with the use of opinion phrases and intensifiers. The amount of adjectives used is limited to promote good language use. You could issue a separate handout with more adjectives for your learners to use. The second page enables learners to compare personalities. The same list of adjectives has been used. Did you find this resource useful? Are there sentence builders you’d like to see? Let me know on Twitter @tasty_tortilla! Leave a review to let me know how much you’ve liked my resource :)

Miembros de la familia - Interactive PowerPoint

***Updated file 17/11/15*** I changed the PowerPoint to not let the slides for the games advance on a mouse-click - this should ensure that the slides only advance by pressing an answer. The previous version missed out the picture for "abuelo" in the true or false game. Here is a PowerPoint with members of the family in Spanish. The members of the family included are: madre, padre, hermano, hermana, abuelo, abuela, tío, tía, primo and prima. The PowerPoint includes interactive games as well with audio. The images for the PowerPoint were taken from: http://www.teachchildrenesl.com/flashcards/family/ Leave a rating or a comment to let me know if you have found this resource useful :)

MFL Certificate - Heart Flag design A certificate to reward your students for their hard work. The file format is PowerPoint so you can edit the text as you wish. The template is designed to be printed on A4 paper. I find card stock from the Range (210 GSM) works well. For the colour printer at my school (Konica Minolta) you have to change the paper type to ‘thick 3’ for best results to prevent smudging.

Spanish - Introductions Crossword

Spanish - Introductions Crossword

(0)
The first in a series of Spanish crossword puzzles. Ideal for revision, extension, cover work or homework. Pupils read a text and fill in the crossword in Spanish using the English clues. There are three levels of difficulty - no help, some letters and some words. This is indicated by the number of stars. Pupils can then use the text as a model to write about themselves. Please leave a review if you liked this resource or to give me some feedback.

Spanish - Introductions - Crossword

(0)
Activity for beginners of Spanish. Pupils read the texts and find the correct translations for the English "clues". The activity is differentiated on three levels (1 star easiest with support - 3 stars hardest without support). The activity is essentially self-marking as the words which pupils choose should be the correct length. However, a marking scheme is provided. There is an extension task provided, which asks pupils to create their own paragraphs based on the Spanish texts. If you like this resource and have found it useful, please leave a rating so I know to create and upload more.

French - School Subjects - Narrow Reading

A narrow reading task I created for my S1 French class. Students must skim and scan the text to answer the questions. I differentiated it by asking some pupils to only answer the questions with a name whilst most were asked to find the name and give the reason why.
Spanish: Ages, Birthday, Eyes & Hair

Spanish: Ages, Birthday, Eyes & Hair

(2)
A resource I used for beginner Spanish. It is a bad translation which could be used in the following ways: Page 1 is a Spanish text and a "badly translated" English version. Pupils must compare both versions. They highlight the mistakes on the English on and correct them. There are 25 mistakes to find. Page 2 offers a gap fill activity which is subsequently used to do the bad translation. Page 3 contains the gapped words which can be offered for differentiation purposes. Page 4 is the answer key. The green words are the words used in the gap fill. The yellow words are the badly translated English words. I find this kind of task can engage even the most reluctant of learners. Also helps to make it competitive.
MFL Starter Task

MFL Starter Task

(0)
Here is a PowerPoint I created to use as starter tasks in my lessons to recap previous language structures and vocabulary. It can be adapted to your language/curriculum. It is not my idea but I have added a timer element. After you start the slide, a black rectangle will start appearing over the screen. After 6 minutes it will cover the whole screen and say time up. My students have responded well and it is a good way of establishing pace at the very start of the lesson.
