Lesson PowerPoint: Mystery French-Speaking Country Cultural Lesson + Worksheet (Mauritius)

(0)
An excellent lesson, providing students with clues as to a mystery Francophone country and asking them to detect which one it might be. 19 slides in total, great fun to teach. Fully animated with all answers, clear directions for students and support for teacher in Notes section of slides if required. Challenge options included within activities to extend HA. The lesson begins by asking students to note down on their whiteboards all that they know about France, and all that they know about French-speaking countries. Activity 1 - Match the French name for the country to the English translation and the correct flag, drawing a star next to the country if you think it has French as an official language. Activity 2- Match the Mystery Country's national dishes to the English translations, and the images if possible. Activity 3 - Use the French clues provided to locate the Mystery Country on the map. Activity 4 - Use the map and the images to work out where the Mystery Country might be. Activity 5 - See how many phrases can be recognised in the song lyrics for a famous band from the Mystery Country (Kana - Pas de problèmes). Think, pair, share and singalong at end. Lesson is reviewed using a Plenary Triangle, asking students to reflect on one thing that they knew already, three things that they've learned during the lesson, and one thing that they would like to know more about. The final section can be set as a research project for homework if wished. Great to fit into modules about Travel and Tourism, food, song, cultural similarities and differences, geography, or as a filler lesson before a holiday. A very popular lesson that always goes down a storm!

Creative Cultural Lesson (Cooking) - Parent / Carer Consent Letter

(0)
A bundle of two letters, advising Parents / Carers that their son or daughter will be taking part in a cultural cooking lesson, and asking for consent and a voluntary contribution of £1.50 to cover materials. A great time saver! Easily adapted to suit the activity you have in mind. The letters are set up for French students to decorate and ice a 'Bûche de Noël' (Chocolate Yule Log) and German students a 'Lebkuchenmann' (Gingerbread Man). They were originally used at Christmas time alongside a cultural comparison regarding Christmas celebrations. A hugely popular activity that students never forget! Letters have also been adapted to make crêpes with French year 11 students and pizza with year 7 Italian students. Great fun and wonderful bringing the language to life in this way!

Italian Christmas Vocabulary and Traditions - KS3 + KS4 - Whole lesson

(0)
Excellent resource, perfect for KS3 and KS4 to introduce / re-cap Italian Christmas vocabulary (una renna, il Babbo Natale and so on) and discuss Christmas and New Year traditions. Fully differentiated with 'Want more', 'Challenge' and 'Want support' options for students, including extension questions linking to reading comprehension and comprehensive A4 page Word Bank, paragraph-by-paragraph to support lower ability learners. Fully animated with all answers and notes under each slide to give overview of each activity. A huge time saver, took a whole afternoon to make! Can be used for one or two lessons depending on ability of group. Lesson begins by asking students to work out Christmas vocabulary. Emphasis on independent learning. A game is then played, either holding up cards or writing the correct letter of the image that corresponds to the given word on a mini-whiteboard. A reading comprehension on Italian Christmas traditions follows. The reading comprehension offers a great opportunity to discuss cultural differences, including food (for example il panettone), the different days in the festive calendar for Italians (8 December, 6 January etc.) and similarities. The reading text is taken from 'Noi parliamo italiano' (link on worksheet). It has been slightly adapted and split into small paragraphs for ease of translation and discussion. The Challenge option asks students to consider traditions at New Year too. Great fun for the students, they're working independently and assimilating cultural knowledge, and really enjoyable to teach! Two games to finish - teacher or student choice! Pictionary on one slide and a Treasure Hunt searching for 15 gold coins and a treasure chest on another. Both designed to link to vocabulary at the start of the lesson!

French Christmas Lesson - KS3 + KS4 - Vocabulary, traditions and games

(1)
Excellent resource, perfect for KS3 and KS4 to introduce / re-cap French Christmas vocabulary (une renne, un bonhomme de neige and so on) and discuss Christmas and New Year traditions. Fully differentiated with 'Want more', 'Challenge' and 'Want support' options for students, including extension questions linking to reading comprehension and Word Bank to support lower ability learners. Fully animated with all answers and notes under each slide to give overview of each activity. A huge time saver, took a whole afternoon to make! Lesson begins by asking students to work out Christmas vocabulary. Emphasis on independent learning. A game is then played, either holding up cards or writing the correct letter of the image that corresponds to the given word on a mini-whiteboard. Reading comprehension on French Christmas traditions follows, then a game of Pictionary and a Treasure Hunt review to finish to re-cap vocabulary. Reading comprehension offers great opportunity to discuss cultural differences, including food (for example foie gras, British culinary traditions that the French wouldn't usually eat, for example mince pies) and similarities. There are two fully prepared reading texts and teacher can select which one would be more appropriate for group. Both are also included on worksheet, either for teacher to delete one as appropriate before printing, or to give both to students and allow them to select their option. The more challenging text asks students to consider traditions at New Year too, and draws upon grammatical knowledge (imperfect tense, verb synonyms, direct object pronouns). The simpler text uses simpler language, is shorter and is split into two sections to help students with understanding. Great fun for the students, they're working independently and assimilating cultural knowledge, and really enjoyable to teach!

Grammar - Perfect tense - Speaking cards game
prof_de_francaisprof_de_francais

Grammar - Perfect tense - Speaking cards game

(0)
Set of cards that can be used in a multitude of different ways. Template is set up to link to perfect tense, but can easily be adapted for other tenses or different grammatical points if required. Slides are designed to be printed and each card cut out. There are eight cards on each slide (four slides in total - 32 cards to play with). Each card has an English phrase and a French phrase underneath. The cards can either be used as dominoes (students will require a full set per group), or as a speaking game, timed in class. To play as a speaking game, each student is handed a card (or more than one card if less than 32 students in group). Cards can be assigned randomly, or teacher can differentiate by giving LA less challenging translations and HA more difficult sentences or more than one card. Students are given 30 seconds to work out the French translation of the English section of their card (this is what will signal that it is their turn to read theirs out), and to familiarise themselves with the pronunciation of the French sentence on the bottom of their card. To play: 1. Teacher starts the clock. 2. The student with the 'Début' card says their English sentence and reads out the French underneath. 3. The student with the English translation that links to the French sentence that has just been said reads their card out loud, and the game continues. 4. The game ends when the student who has the last card says their English and French out loud. The French will link to the English on the first card read aloud. 5. Teacher stops the clock. 6. Round two - can the students beat their original time? 7. Pick up on grammatical points as a class / any errors that were made. Why did these happen (pronunciation, recognition of pronouns etc.)? Differentiation suggestions: * Teacher can mix up the cards in between rounds and play several times. * Teacher can show PowerPoint as students are saying cards aloud, to support with colour recognition of the cards they are holding (if game is printed in colour) and with visual recognition of speech. Inversely, to increase challenge, teacher does not show PowerPoint. * Teacher can limit time students have to familiarise themselves with their card(s) after they are handed out. Always a huge hit! Can be played at beginning or end of lesson. Useful from HA KS2 - KS4 to revise perfect tense. Sentences use vocabulary linked to activities such as going to the cinema or bowling.
