World Cup 2018 French Lesson. La Coupe du Monde 2018

(0)
La Coupe du Monde 2018 Resources Product Description. I have planned this lesson not only to teach vocabulary and facts about football and the World Cup 2018, but also to help the students to respond creatively to their learning and hopefully share their passion for football! The PowerPoint uses matching cards, colourful pictures and animations and YouTube extracts set to music to inspire the students. It is planned to use with students from Years 6-9 (the final task is very open-ended). Slide 2 states the objective: Objectif: To learn about Le Football & La Coupe du Monde 2018 and to respond creatively to your learning. All: Will learn vocabulary and facts and use them to create an acrostic or a calligramme. Most: Will learn and research vocabulary and facts and use them to create an acrostic or a calligramme. Some: Will learn and research vocabulary and facts and use them to create a poem. Slide 3 has a YouTube link to follow to use with the attached worksheet: https://youtu.be/uC14iKFNwIc . This uses the official FIFA promotional video and the students tick the countries they see. The worksheet is differentiated with an Extra! challenge. The answers are on the next PowerPoint slide. Slide 5 introduces key vocabulary and can be used with the matching cards. The students should work in pairs/ groups to match the vocabulary and the picture using their previous knowledge, cognates and a process of elimination. Vocabulary: Le joueur de foot Le gardien de but L’arbitre Le stade Le ballon de foot La coupe Un drapeau Une équipe Un carton jaune Le terrain de foot Un maillot de foot Des chaussures de foot The activity is differentiated as follows: All: Match Up! Most: Perfect Pronunciation Challenge! Some: Quick Fire Questions! (Here the students quiz each other: French to English, English to French, spellings, accents……). Slides 6 to 17 show each word and the matching picture and colourful animations. Slide 18 has all the pictures for a quick recap. Then there is graded questioning: Slides 19 to 30 have A, B, C multiple choice questions. Slides 31 to 44 are “What’s missing?” slides. Then slide 45 has a YouTube link to the France 2018 Promo video and students should note down new nouns and adjectives expressing the emotions they see and feel (if they don’t know the French they can grab a dictionary later!) The creative challenges are presented on slides 45 and 46, this is to either create an acrostic, a calligramme or a poem (there is a poem template provided). This information is also on the accompanying worksheets. Slide 47 provides the opportunity for reflection. I really hope you and your students enjoy these resources!

The first slide encourages the students to actively engage with the new vocabulary: working in teams, using their prior knowledge, knowledge of other languages and using a process of elimination to figure out the meanings. They then discuss the pronunciation and question each other before the teacher checks with the whole class. Phrases: Asseyez-vous. Levez-vous. Levez la main. Travaillez avec votre partenaire. Prenez un stylo. Ouvrez les cahiers. Pour les devoirs…. Écrivez. Lisez. Parlez. Écoutez. Rangez vos affaires. The next slides have the phrase and a picture. Use this to elicit the pronunciation, the English and to drill. The next section of slides have multiple choice questions. Then there are "what's missing?" slides. The final slide has pictures of all the phrases. This can be used for a Beat the Teacher game, which the students love! The teacher points to a picture and says a word. If it is the correct word the students all repeat it. If it’s the wrong word the students must stay absolutely silent. If they do, they win 1 point. If not, the teacher gets 1 point. Most points wins! There is also a fanfold to help the students to learn the phrases. They fold over the sheet of paper so they can only see the English and try to write the French. They then open up the sheet and make any corrections. Then they fold over the sheet of paper so they can only see the French and try to write the English. They then open up the sheet and make any corrections. They continue writing and folding until they have filled in the whole sheet. By this time they have hopefully memorised all the phrases!

French Teaching Resources. Premiere Guerre Mondiale. World War 1/ Armistice.

(0)
I designed these activities to commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. These resources could also be used each year to commemorate the Armistice. I really wanted the students to experience and express an emotional connection with the topic and can honestly say that they produced some extremely moving written work in response to the material. They were also studying themed lessons in History, English and Drama lessons on the topic of World War 1. I spent 2 lessons on these activities and used them with my Year 9 students (aged 13-14). I feel it would also work well with Year 10 students (aged 14-15) and younger Gifted students. The PowerPoint guides you through the material. It starts with a YouTube link to play as the students enter the classroom. This shows footage of trench warfare and I felt this powerfully set the scene for the lesson to come. Slide 3 presents the objective: To learn about La Première Guerre Mondale and to respond creatively to your learning. This is then differentiated into All, Most and Some. I then give out the cards to unjumble the following text: Les 3 et 4 août 1914, l’Allemagne, la France et l’Angleterre se déclaraient la guerre. C’était le début de la première guerre mondiale. Elle allait durer quatre ans. Pendant la guerre, environ 19 millions de personnes sont mortes (9,7 millions de militaires). En 1918 on comptait 1 325 000 soldats français morts. Beaucoup étaient très jeunes. Les conditions de vie dans les tranchées étaient très difficiles. Il faisait froid. Il y avait de la boue et les soldats étaient souvent sales. Il n’y avait pas d’électricité et pas de chauffage. Les hommes dormaient dehors. They found the text unjumbling activity pretty challenging so I circulated and game plenty of support. It is definitely worthwhile printing out slide 4 which gives useful vocabulary translations to support the students. The students then watch a 4 minute extract from the film Joyeux Noel (make sure you have the English subtitles) and complete the worksheet. If you do not have the DVD you may be able to find the correct extract on YouTube. The students then have time to produce their creative response. Weaker student can produce and acrostic or a calligramme using their support sheet. Stronger students may adapt the Nelson Mandela Poem to write about La Guerre. More gifted students can read through the letter from the frontline in the book Lulu Et La Grande Guerre (scan attached) and write their own letter. I asked the students to read out/ present their work to the class and we created a stunning display of the student’s work. Finally there is a slide to reflect on What Went Well (WWW) and Even Better If (EBI).

This PowerPoint elicits the translations and therefore the rules of Demonstrative Adjectives and Demonstrative Pronouns. When I show the question slide I put the students into groups to discuss the answers for a minute before checking using the following slide. For example the first slide asks: Ce garçon = ? Ces garçons = ? Cette femme = ? Ces femmes = ? Cependant, il faut dire «cet homme.» Pourquoi? And the second slide reveals the answers and gives you the opportunity to discuss the rules. The fourth slide asks and answers: Parfois on dit «cet homme-ci» ou «cette femme-là.» Pourquoi? The fifth slide moves onto deminstrative pronouns and asks: Ceci and cela/ça = ? Avez-vous considéré cela? = ? Je n’aime pas ça! = ? Ceci est precisement ce que je voulais = ? Qu’est-ce que ça veut dire? = The answers are on slide 6. Slide 7 asks: De toutes les robes que j’ai essayées je préfère celle-ci = ? Quelle est la différence entre ceci et celle-ci? ...and slide 8 presents the answers.

Then click on the links to the fabulous free website www.classtools.net where you will find a "random name picker". Instead of names I have written the perfect tense in French. The students pair up. I hit the "click to spin" button and they race to correctly translate the day that the picker lands on to win a point. This is lots of fun, is v competitive and can be loud! The next slides deal with the extra e for feminine and the slide after that looks at the whole conjugation of être. Then there is a slide of MRS TRAVENDAMP verbs and finally a revision slide which can be used in the next lesson. You may wish to reinforce this learning with my battleships game.
