French Easter Lesson - Vocabulary, Games and Traditions - KS3 + KS4

(1)
Excellent lesson, introducing / re-capping French Easter vocabulary and traditions. Fully animated and very attractively presented. Lesson is fully differentiated with ‘Challenge’ and ‘Want support’ options for learners as appropriate. LA and HA worksheets included within bundle. All answers provided and support for teacher in ‘Notes’ section of each slide. Emphasis on fun, independent learning. Students are asked to match French Easter vocabulary to the English equivalents to begin, then repeat the words after the teacher (create a team points game from this activity if you wish with actions). Students are then asked to match a phrase to the correct image, using letter cards or by writing a letter on a whiteboard. A reading text then follows, with questions linked to Easter celebrations and traditions in France. At the end of the lesson, a Pictionary slide is set up to review learning, and also an Easter Egg Hunt game, whereby if students answer questions correctly, they can choose a square to hunt for 15 golden eggs. Took four hours to make! A huge time saver!

French Introductions Jigsaw Activity Display - All About Me

(0)
Great resource, providing a template in the shape of a jigsaw piece for students to introduce themselves. Jigsaw pieces can be decorated as teacher sees fit (with photographs or coloured in for example) and displayed, or simply used as a worksheet. Students asked to complete sentences to provide basic information about themselves including their name, age, nationality, birthday, family, favourite colour and sport. Template can be amended as teacher wishes. Makes a brilliant display for the start of term, simple and very personal to students. Helps them to get to know each other too!

First lesson of the year - Everything you need! - French

Excellent first lesson of the year, comprehensively covering slide-by-slide all that you need your new class to know in an accessible and fun way. Helps you to get to know your students, their learning preferences and personalities, and helps them to get to know each-other too, setting them up for some great learning. Also gets you off to a brilliant start with your expectations through a whole-class ‘Partnership Agreement’ that they create and sign. I use this template every year with every class that I teach and it always works brilliantly. They have a lot of fun, as do you, and you also get all of the bits sorted that you need to without missing anything out (an overview of the year, books, seating plan etc.), which is easily done at the start of a busy term. Recommended especially for new teachers. Clear instructions on each slide and places for you to insert your own information. 15 slides in total: 1. Resources you need for the lesson. 2. Space to insert your seating plan. 3. Date, title, LO, starter slide. 4. Our Partnership Agreement slide. 5. Expectations / building on slide before. 6. ‘Mon cahier d’exercice’ slide. 7. Getting to know each other - The two truths game. 8. As above - teacher’s answers. 9. My promise to you (what you will do as a teacher to help their learning). 10. Raffle tickets and how they work, if you decide to use to reinforce positive behaviour. 11. Our lessons - overview of the number of lessons each week, report and Parents’ Evening dates and topics. 12. Help me to understand your learning activity. 13. Examples of feedback from activity above. 14. As before. 15. Lotto game!

Feedback template
prof_de_francais

Feedback template

(0)
Personalised feedback template, designed to be easily adapted for large groups. Features a 'What Went Well', 'Even Better If' and 'Try This' section, designed to consolidate or advance understanding. Feedback can be typed into sections and some sentences copied and pasted if appropriate to save time when marking. Sheets can then be printed and glued underneath work (either by teacher or by student in the following lesson). Students answer their 'Try This' in the 'My Response' section, and then write a brief comment (or draw a happy, medium or sad face if they prefer) to let teacher know how confident they are feeling with their understanding. This has proved incredibly useful on a number of occasions and students have often said how much they appreciate actually being able to quietly ask for a bit more help if they need it. Some students have also used it to disclose Safeguarding issues - all in all a beneficial little space to note anything down if required. It is obviously very important to read and respond to their 'Try this' question, especially if they have trusted you and opened up about needing a little more support. 'Try this' question can simply have a 1, 2 or 3 written next to it to save time, and then these questions displayed on board when students are reflecting on feedback if easier. Slides are a blank template, easily adaptable, and an feedback form filled in as an example.
