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!

This PowerPoint presents the following vocabulary: Un billet (un aller-simple/ un aller-retour) Guichet Sortie de secours Renseignements Consigne Objets trouvés Buffet Un composteur Départs Salle d’attente Le quai 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. The next slides have the vocabulary and a picture. Use this to elicit the pronunciation, the English and to drill. The next section of slides have multiple choice questions. The final slide has pictures of all the phrases.

French Teaching Resources. Demonstrative Adjectives & Demonstrative Pronouns.

(0)
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.
French Teaching Resources. Sentence Building, adding sophistication to writing.

French Teaching Resources. Sentence Building, adding sophistication to writing.

(0)
I use this resource with similar ability teams of students to build sentences and increase the level of sophistication of written work. It could be used as a revision task and the beginning of term and throughout the school year. I use it with Years 8 and 9. I print out the first sheet and the second template sheet and have the sheets colour photocopied and enlarged onto A3 size paper. The teams start with the middle sentence and work their way through the different stages to develop the sentence and increase the level of sophistication. The starter sentence here is: Starter sentence: Le week-end je porte mon jean, mon tee-shirt, mes chaussettes et mes baskets. Je joue au foot. Je mange un sandwich. Then the first development box invites them to: 1.Add opinions e.g. j’adore, j’aime, je n’aime pas, je déteste, je préfère. 2. Add adjectives e.g. colours, génial, intéressant, fatigant, amusant. * Check masc/fem/plural endings. Check word order. C’est = it is, ce n’est pas = it isn’t. * You can also add a range of connectives e.g. et = and, mais = but, avec= with, donc = therefore, où = where, qui = who, parce que/car = because, tandis que = whereas, while, puis = then, ensuite = then, après = after, de plus = furthermore, par contre = on the other hand, en revanche = on the other hand. Add in a range of adverbs: très = very, assez = quite, un peu = a little, plutôt = rather, extrêmement = extremely, incroyablement = unbelievably, souvent = often, rarement = rarely. The following boxes add in the Perfect and near Future tenses plus a range of sophisticated structures for your higher ability students. I would not expect all groups to work through all of the stages, perhaps the weakest group would aim to incorporate only the first suggestions and so on. I have been really impressed by the work produced using this support. It can also be used by students individually.
Noël French Teaching Resources. Christmas Mystery: Perfect Tense.

Noël French Teaching Resources. Christmas Mystery: Perfect Tense.

(0)
I use this French Christmas Mystery with my Year 10 and 11 students who have studied the perfect tense and perfect infinitive. It could also be used with younger Gifted and Talented students. I show them the PowerPoint first, eliciting the information in English and then give them out a set of cards. There are a variety of clues, including some red herrings, so the students really have to use their thinking skills and teamwork. I allow them to use dictionaries. * The ANSWERS to the mystery are at the top of the cards sheet. Be careful not to give this information out!! All students are aiming to figure out who. Most to find out what gift and some why. The suspects are the Santa’s reindeer including; Tornade (Dasher), Danseur (Dancer) , Furie (Prancer), Fringant (Vixen) and Comète (Comet)! Examples of clues: Hier soir Tournade a porté des gants jaunes. Danseur est allé à la discothèque à 18h00. Il est rentré à 22h00. Danseur ne s’entend pas avec Tonerre. Furie a perdu son portable. Enjoy!

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).

Battleships Expressions: Je porte J’adore porter J’aime porter Je n’aime pas porter Je déteste porter un jean bleu. un pantalon noir. une jupe verte. un pull rouge. une robe bleue. des chaussettes jaunes. Battleships Game Instructions Firstly I ask the students to work independently in pairs to translate the expressions. The students then focus on pronunciation and decide the two easiest and two most difficult words to pronounce. I then check the translations and drill pronunciation with the whole class before they play the game. The students secretly choose 5 squares on the top grid and then try to guess which 5 squares their partner has chosen, filling in the bottom grid with “hit” and “miss.” To choose a square say a phrase from the horizontal line and complete the sentence with a phrase from the vertical line. Where the 2 phrases meet up is the square you have chosen. I use the English language sheet to further challenge the students: they should place this on top of the French version and then try to play the game saying the French phrases as far as possible from memory. I allow the really weak students to have the French version next to the English version so they have lots of support, stronger students are allowed a few “sneaky peaks” at the French version and the really strong students aim to refer back to the French version as little as possible. This really helps the students to memorise the vocabulary/structures! During the game I circulate the classroom checking pronunciation. This is followed by whole class drilling of pronunciation mistakes. Enjoy!
