This PowerPoint introduces the concept of adjectives in French, including endings, irregulars, position in the phrase, etc.
A brief description of the present participle in French - its formation and its use.
Use this PowerPoint to introduce the all-important concept of -er verbs. At the end of the introduction, there is a pairwork dice game, allowing pupils to practise the -er verb endings. Instructions are in the notes section of the presentation.
This is a bit of fun that the kids love! Use when teaching about French cognates and near-cognates. A great team game for a whole class activity. Instructions are on the first few slides.
A PowerPoint to introduce directions in French. Each slide follows a moving arrow with the directions, leading to the different places on the map of 'Fausseville'.
Use this PowerPoint to introduce 'aller' and how it can be used to talk about the near future.
This is a starter activity, following work on tenses and time phrases. Pupils point forwards, etc. to show they know the tense/time phrase shown. In later examples, the clues are highlighted ('dernier', the accent on the last 'e', etc.). Instructions are in the PowerPoint.
This can be used in any language (or subject!). Type your clues into the ‘Clue’ boxes. Pupils work in two teams (red and blue) and their objective is to get 4 (or 3, if you prefer) of their coloured rectangles in a row for a point. This can be vertically, horizontally or diagonally. I allow 5 in a row to count as 2 points. In presentation mode, click on the relevant coloured circle to change the colour of the rectangle.
This PowerPoint introduces quantities of food and drink in French. It starts with an example conversation at a market and pupils have 2 minutes (timed) to find the quantities. The vocabulary is then introduced and it ends with a Os and Xs game to practise the vocabulary.
This is a template, so you can use your own choice of words, in any language. Students choose a number on the screen and have to make a sentence with the word that appears after clicking. Depending upon ability, they could make new sentences with the words chosen, or they could try to make a story with the following words.
After teaching the colours in French, use this to entertain and focus your class! It can be quite amusing for the teacher too! It can also be a fabulous starter to focus pupils at the start of a lesson. A familiar format: pupils have to say the colour of the ink, not the word itself.
