Futur Antérieur Task Cards + Powerpoint

Futur Antérieur Task Cards + Powerpoint

This is a set of 30 French FUTUR ANTÉRIEUR tense task cards + powerpoint that you can use in a number of ways with your students. Each card has a sentence written in the futur simple and your students must transform the sentence to the futur antérieur. This is a nice cooperative speaking activity or if you choose you can use the task cards as a written assignment. A student response sheet is included if you decide to use the cards this way. I'm including a powerpoint version of the cards should you want to project them and have the whole class work together. There's a nice mixture of common regular and irregular verbs to work with. There are verbs using both avoir and être as helping verb as well as a few reflexives (even two that don't require making agreement on the past participle as a challenge). Students can work with a partner as a cooperative activity and to practice speaking or they can work individually to practice writing. Task cards are a nice alternative to worksheets which can sometimes seem tedious or boring. Just print, cut out and laminate these cards and you're ready to go, no prep for years to come! If you look in the upper left corner you'll see a space where you can neatly punch a hole in each card and then connect them with a keyring. This really makes using these task cards easy enough to decide on using at the drop of a hat, and they make for fantastic review.Included with this product:30 futur antérieur task cards, black and white version30 futur antérieur task cards, color versionAnswer keyStudent response sheetPowerpoint version
