Extra! French - worksheets to accompany episode 1 - L'arrivée de Sam

(0)
The show Extra! is a thirteen episode series for French language learners. it takes place in a Paris apartment/dormitory and has four main characters - Sam, Nico, Sacha, and Annie. Sam is an American who is trying to learn French as well as to make some new friends. He has a secret that will affect the way he relates to other people. Each episode can stand alone, although it is more interesting to start from the beginning and watch them in order. I usually show these to my second year students during the second semester. They have enough vocabulary to understand most of the dialog by this time. The worksheets provide comprehension checks but also scaffolding resources. In this packet you will find: • vocabulary list with English translations • vocabulary list with no translations - have students fill in while watching • comprehension questions in French • comprehension questions in English • flashcards for the vocabulary list • useful words section with translations and explanations • word search • crossword puzzle • cryptogram - one with and one without a help guide. This particular activity is based upon Sam’s mistakes in speaking French. Have students decode the sentences and then correct his errors. There are many places to view the episodes, youtube has them in both sub-titled and non sub-titled versions. For lower level students, I would suggest the version with French subtitles.

Le Grand Chien - a Comprehensible Input lesson for French learners

Juliette has a dog, a really big dog. Her dog is causing trouble at school, because he keeps eating her homework. Will she be able to convince her teacher that the dog really is hungry enough to eat her homework? Find out in this fun CI video lesson for French learners. This item includes a story with targeted vocabulary structures that are used multiple times throughout the story. The structures are: a mangé demande ne la croit pas avait faim The story is told in two different ways. There is a printable text version, and an animated mp4 version. Tell the story as you watch it (pause if you want to stop and discuss or storyask!), or just watch it for comprehension. The video is about 11 minutes long, with pause time for students to read the text. There is a second version of the video with only the illustrations - no text - so you can watch it and do story retells. To accompany the video and printed story, there are several activity pages - a comprehension worksheets, a “who said it?” worksheet, and a story retell page. Answer key included. To sum it up, the item includes: one mp4 file of the story with text one mp4 file of the story without text link to videos online so your students can rewatch on their own printable pdf story comprehension question worksheet “who said it?” worksheet story retell worksheet answer key With many people doing distance learning these days, you might wonder if it is possible to use this story in this way. The answer is YES! Here are some suggestions on how you can make this work: Use the pdf of the story as reading practice. You might have students read it before or after you use the video. Use Zoom meeting (or whatever software of your choice) to tell the story with the video. Share your screen with the mp4 file. There is no sound for the video, this is done purposely so that you can use the story for storyasking. Tell the story a little at a time, pausing the video frequently to ask questions. This will help you to circle the vocabulary and structures. Add details! If the sentence says “there is a monster under the bed” - ask questions such as “is there a monster or a dog? Is the monster under or on the bed? What kind of a monster is it - big or little? Scary or nice? What is his name? Is there a monster under your bed? What kind of a monster is under YOUR bed?” Once you have done the storyasking part of the task, now it is time for the students to do the comprehension and retell. These are pdf files that you can send to the students. You can also share the link to the page with the mp4 stories, so the students can watch the video on their own - with or without the text - and practice retelling. Finally, you can have students do the retell. This can be done through Zoom, or you could have them use Flipgrid to record.
