I'm a French teacher in the USA. I've been teaching levels 1-4 for 27 years. I enjoy making products that students will enjoy reading. I am an early adopter when it comes to technology in the classroom and I have many items available in both digital and print versions.

The -ER Verb song - French er verbs

(8)
A catchy, easy song to help your students learn the endings to French ER verbs. It doesn't just teach the endings in order, it also teaches when to use them. Sung to the tune of 'If you're happy and you know it' - it's easy to learn and sing, and helpful!

5 French graphics for "one's gotta go" type questions FREEBIE

5 French graphics for "one's gotta go" type questions FREEBIE

(0)
Do you start off your class with a quick poll or check-in question? This set of graphics can be used from day one to get students using French. This sampler has 5 different graphics that you can use in Desmos, Nearpod, Peardeck, or on a social media post to get input from your students. Each graphic gives them a choice of four different things - and one’s gotta go! You can use it in different levels by adjusting the task. Level 1 - from the beginning, you can have them just choose between options A, B, C and D. Get lots of comprehensible input by having a class discussion about who wants to get rid of each item. Later on, have them write complete sentences starting with “je choisis.” Level 2 - have students start to add more detail to their responses. Tell them to include details - why did they choose the item they did? Have them write more complex sentences explaining why they think their item should go. Level 3 - have students make their choice and then talk about why they are getting rid of the item and why the other three items get to stay. Some graphics have very basic vocabulary, some have more advanced items - but all are easy to understand due to the images. There are also some cultural graphics mixed in. If you like the freebie sampler of 5, there is another set of 100 that comes with a template for making your own graphics if you would like to do so.
