I use these to teach regular present tense verb patterns to beginners, but the flowers can be used for any tense that is made of a stem and ending.
I have displays of flowers in all of the language classrooms.
You can reduce the size of the flowers and print multiple copies on a page. Pupils can then make a collage to represent all of the verb groups or tenses they know.
Presentation begins with review of 'habiter' and vocabulary for houses and regions. Reviews prepositions used to mean 'in'. Worksheet provides opportunity to write full sentences based on the presentation and there is a small (but difficult) gapfill exercise on prepositions. Also includes introduction to rooms of house.
This is a PowerPoint presentation and a simple worksheet to compliment Module 6.3 from Listos 1. It involves present tense conjugation of regular and irregular verbs and freetime activities. There are some simple gapfill exercises on the PowerPoint. I get the class to fill in the verb tables on the worksheet and then write their own sentences linked with pictures from the presentation.
This is a collection of my speaking board games which are ideal for independent work. They can be used for any language. They are ideal for GCSE role play revision, but can also be excellent preparation for the listening and reading examinations.
There are some ideas on how to use the boards. You may like to give pupils dice and some counters, but you can also play with them when the board is projected on your whiteboards (to save printing costs).
This is a fast paced activity reviewing the present conjugation of regular ER verbs. There are over 100 slides and five games to play. Slides give the English and pupils have ten seconds to find the French. The presentation is easily adaptable and can be used either as a whole lesson or as several short activities within a lesson. You can come back to it as often as you like. It helps pupils to perfect their translation of verbs in preparation for exams.
Introduction to the regular present tense. A short starter activity matching subject pronouns, followed by the presentation of the three main groups of regular verbs and their endings. There is a short conjugation exercise for each group of verbs and printable blank verb flowers too.
Print out several sets of the cards and laminate them. Pupils work in pairs or small groups and race against each other to form the present tense with the cards after reading from the PowerPoint. Good element of competition and really highlights how much (or little!) they actually know. Can be easily adapted to suit your requirements too.

This is another of my verb card races. Print off the cards from the word doc and get groups to compete against each other to get the translations right. It uses the verb 'porter' as an example and requires knowledge of the present, perfect, imperfect, future and near future.
This is a vocabulary mark book for test results (we use it for grammar and vocabulary tests but it can be used for any subject) which can monitor test results, retests and ranks the class for each test to encourage competition.
I have included instructions on how to use the tracker.
The file is protected to stop people from erasing formulae but the password is MFL.
If you come up with a great update - do let me know. I know it isn't perfect!
NEW VERSION for être verbs.
Print out the cards and laminate them. Pupils work in pairs or small groups and race against each other to form the perfect tense with the cards after reading the infinitive and the subject from the PowerPoint. Good element of competition and really highlights how much (or little!) they actually know. Includes all 13 être verbs and agreement. Can be easily adapted to suit your requirements too.
This is another of my verb card races. You need to print off some sets of the cards, cut them out and laminate them. Pupils then race each other to pick up the cards to match what they see on the screen. I have mine move their cards to an answer board to stop them from copying others and then you can award points to whoever has the right cards on display. It encourages a good sense of competition, can be used again and again, and makes verb drills fun. (Requires knowledge of present, preterite, near future, future and imperfect tenses)
