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 Easter Vocabulary, Games and Traditions - KS3 + KS4

French Easter Vocabulary, Games and Traditions - KS3 + KS4

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!
