The Perfect Tense Card Race

The Perfect Tense Card Race

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 avoir and être verbs and agreement. Can be easily adapted to suit your requirements too.

Mes vacances et ma passion-Les Alpes

Mes vacances et ma passion-Les Alpes

I tried to select a nice topic and theme to teach and revise various skills and grammatical aspects . It links to Expo3 ( la Normandie ) rouge with the discovery of an area but I jaust added more on this so students get to compare areas and see how varied France is. I will add more through a different power point and add worksheets , this is taking ages .... hope it helps. I used the interactive quiz with the gap fill as a little starter and introduction about the Alps before showing the Power Point.

FRENCH ANIMALS - 100 EASTER BUNNY GAME CARDS

FRENCH ANIMALS - 100 EASTER BUNNY GAME CARDS

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS IN FRENCH!FRENCH EASTER BUNNY ANIMALS GAMES CARDS are perfect for young learners of FRENCH. They provide lots of opportunities to learn a range of animals, both masculine and feminine, and really do help to create a lively language learning environment. Children can develop their skills in word recognition and recall, pronunciation, speaking, listening and reading in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, independently of the teacher. They’re a great way of introducing the concept of gender, and of looking at determiners in FRENCH too.It doesn’t matter is any of the animals don’t feature in your immediate or even longer-term learning plan: the card games encourage children to engage happily and confidently with FRENCH, to identify cognates and to begin to link spelling with sound in FRENCH. They also help learners begin to work out the meaning of unknown words using visual clues and prompts. Along the way, children may even get to know some new animals!There are 100 cards in total, which include 2 sets of 50 cards to enable you to differentiate your games: - blue bunny cards with the word written out in full in FRENCH, as well as the picture prompt. - blackline bunny cards with the word written out in full in ENGLISH, as well as the picture prompt- blackline bunny cards with the picture prompt only- blue bunny cards with the word written out in full in FRENCH - this is really useful for word recognition and recallThe animals featured are:- bee- bird- cat- chicken- cow- dog- duck- elephant- fish- fox- frog- giraffe- horse- lion- monkey- owl- parrot- pig- rabbit- sheep- spider- squirrel- tiger- tortoise/turtle- zebraI've suggested a range of really successful and popular games to play - play them games as often as possible around EASTER TIME for maximum benefit - the EASTER BUNNIES are always really popular with little learners! Playing against a timer adds some extra fun! Laminate the cards for longevity - you will be able to play the EASTER BUNNY games for many EASTERTIMES to come!The resource consists of a single, non-editable pdf file - I've included a couple of preview images so that you can see what the resource looks like.

Mi Barrio GCSE 9-1 My Area Spanish Revision Tasks (Year 10/11)

Mi Barrio GCSE 9-1 My Area Spanish Revision Tasks (Year 10/11)

Sometimes I find it difficult to give students revision tasks that will not require large amounts of printing and marking on my behalf. To overcome this I have recently tried this concept with my Year 10 group to help revise for their upcoming school assessments.Students have a sheet full of revision tasks. The tasks are divided into 3 groups and each group equates to set amount of time they should spend on a given task. The tasks vary from self assessing to peer assessing to resources they can create and use themselves in future. I have attached both .pdf and .doc for your editing needs.Claddagh Classrooms
