Italian Easter Vocabulary, Games and Traditions - KS3 + KS4

Italian Easter Vocabulary, Games and Traditions - KS3 + KS4

Excellent lesson, introducing / re-capping Italian 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 Italian 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 Italy. 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!

Les Animaux - Board Game

Les Animaux - Board Game

Playing lotto is a fun way to practice and reinforce the names of animals in French. Could also be used in early years and for any foreign language. I thought it a welcome change to include 'life like pictures.' There are 24 images which include: un chatun poussinun lapinun oiseauune sourisun cochonun tigreune libelluleun chienun agneauune mouetteun cochon d'Indeune coccinelleun canardune girafeun moutonun hibouun chevalun poissonun serpentun rouge-gorgeun écureuilune chèvreun lion I split my children into small groups and they each take turns at being the 'teacher'. They love calling out 'Qui a un chat?' and 'Qui a une vache? To win the card the reply is 'J'ai un chat, 'J'ai une vache.' As children become confident with vocabulary, the colours of the animals could also be mentioned. I have also included cards with animal names. Good practice for oral work. Picture cards and words need to be printed twice. If you consider this worth buying, 'un très grand merci.' Comments and feedback is always welcome and appreciated.My thanks to 'pexels.com' for the use of the pictures, even though attribution is not required.

How to revise MFL vocabulary effectively (IMPROVED with Spanish version)

How to revise MFL vocabulary effectively (IMPROVED with Spanish version)

Most students will find revision boring - this is mainly because they think staring at the page will do!!! Unfortunately, as much as I stare at the kettle, the cup of tea does not just magically materialise in my hands!!I find this strategy is useful for an active and creative approach to homework. Please model with students by challenging them to memorise a sentence, make it longer and longer each lesson... they get seriously involved!!!! Examples in French and Spanish but concept is applicable to any language.

ITALIAN VERBS (1) - ACTIVITIES & DOMINOES PACK - 99 HIGH-FREQUENCY VERBS

ITALIAN VERBS (1) - ACTIVITIES & DOMINOES PACK - 99 HIGH-FREQUENCY VERBS

This combined pack of GAMES AND ACTIVITIES AND 3 DOMINOES GAMES features 99 essential ESSENTIAL VERBS in the infinitive form. Together, they offer an interactive and communicative alternative to 'traditional' vocabulary and grammar drilling activities, and really do help to create a lively language learning environment. They're perfect for pair and small-group work, enabling students to learn independently of the teacher. GAMES AND ACTIVITIESThe game cards are versatile, and can be used for a number of language learning games; I’ve described several games you can play and ways you can use them in the classroom. They're great for a ready-made quick vocab quiz too! The game card template lets your students put their knowledge of ITALIAN verbs to the test as they create cards for each other - preferably from memory. The games and activities work just as well if you're homeschooling too.There are three differentiated RECALL AND WRITE ACTIVITIES:CHALLENGE 1Students recall and write all the verbs in English from an ITALIAN prompt - the ITALIAN verbs are in alphabetical orderCHALLENGE 2Students recall and write all the verbs in English from an ITALIAN prompt, with the verbs appearing in random, rather than alphabetical orderCHALLENGE 3Students recall and write all the verbs in ITALIAN from an English prompt - this really does put their knowledge to the test - and is great for practicing spelling in ITALIAN too.THREE DIFFERENTIATED DOMINOES GAMESGAME 1 features the verbs in alphabetical order, ITALIAN to English GAME 2 features the verbs in topsy-turvy order, ITALIAN to EnglishGAME 3 features the verbs in topsy-turvy order, ENGLISH to ITALIAN - your students will really have to know their ITALIAN verbs to complete this sequence in record time!PLAY THE NUMBER GAMES!These are fast-paced vocab quizzes, great for starter, warm-up, refresher and plenary activities at regular intervals across the school year - choose a language calling out either the ITALIAN or ENGLISH verb, with students responding either verbally or in writing on a mini-whiteboard - I've also included two NUMBER GAME calling lists, both ITALIAN and ENGLISH. THE NUMBER GAMES can be played as a team game, with small groups, or with students playing as individuals against each other.I've classed the pack as suitable for ages 11-18, because it really does depend on when your students began ITALIAN, the level they are currently working at, and the level they are aspiring to. The pack consists of 3 non-editable files in a zipped format. The resources are also available individually, priced at £2.50 and £2.00. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the pack is copyright, and for single-classroom use only.GRAZIE MILLE E BUON DIVERTIMENTO!

ITALIAN TELLING THE TIME (1) - FIVE GAMES & CHALLENGES PACK

ITALIAN TELLING THE TIME (1) - FIVE GAMES & CHALLENGES PACK

I HAVE , WHO HAS - 2 GAMES, 2 CHALLENGES and DOMINOES - 3 GAMES, 3 CHALLENGES - FOCUS on o'clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past.I HAVE, WHO HAS? is a great language learning game. The repetitive nature of the questions and answers, supported by the visual prompt of the clock faces, makes it perfect for practising, reinforcing and refreshing how to tell the time in ITALIAN. It’s a whole-group communicative game, with a multi-skill focus on speaking, listening, reading, vocabulary-building and developing accurate pronunciation. The game really does help to create a lively language learning environment, and is a great alternative to more traditional 'drilling' activities.There are two games, each with a different challenge:CHILLOUT CHALLENGE - with the clock times in numerical orderCHAMPION CHALLENGE - with the clock times in topsy-turvy order, which really does encourage students to focus on how to tell the time in ITALIAN!DINKY ITALIAN TELLING THE TIME DOMINOES GAMES (1) will help your students develop their skill in telling the time in ITALIAN in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, learning independently of the teacher. The games are ideal for independent learning, and perfect for pair and small-group work. There are three games and three levels of challenge:GAME 1: CHILLOUT CHALLENGE features the analogue times in numerical order, 1 — 12GAME 2: CHAMPION CHALLENGE features all the times in topsy-turvy order, which really gets students thinking about how to tell the time in ITALIANGAME 3: SUPER-CHARGED CHALLENGE features all the times in topsy-turvy order, with the clock faces first, so students really do need to know how to tell the time in ITALIAN to complete the domino sequence in record time!

The games feature analogue clock times, 1-12, including midday and midnight, with o'clock, half past, a quarter to and a quarter past the hour. I've classed the games as suitable for ages 7-16, because it really does depend on the age at which your students begin their ITALIAN, the language themes and concepts they're currently working on, and what areas of learning they might need to focus on during revision periods. The resource itself consists of three, non-editable files; I've added a selection of preview images to give you an idea of what the resource looks like as a whole. The I HAVE, WHO HAS and the DOMINOES GAMES are also available separately if you prefer, each priced at £2.00.Please read the Terms of Use carefully - this resource is copyright, and for single-classroom use only.GRAZIE MILLE E BUON DIVERTIMENTO!

ITALIAN VERBS SETS 1 & 2 - GAMES & ACTIVITIES - 198 HIGH-FREQUENCY VERBS

PERFECT FOR PRACTISING, REFRESHING AND REINFORCING HIGH-FREQUENCY ITALIAN VERBS!This combined pack of ITALIAN VERBS GAMES AND ACTIVITIES SETS 1 AND 2 features 198 high-frequency ITALIAN verbs, and offers an interactive and communicative alternative to 'traditional' vocabulary and grammar drilling activities. The games and activities really do help to create a lively and multi-skill language learning environment. The alphabetical ITALIAN-English reference lists of all 198 verbs work well as a learning support resource, and also as a whole-group reading out loud pronunciation and warm-up practice. The cards are versatile, and can be used for a number of language learning games; I’ve described several games you can play and ways you can use them in the classroom. They're great for a ready-made quick vocab quiz too! The game card template lets your students put their knowledge of ITALIAN verbs to the test as they create quiz cards for each other. There are three differentiated RECALL AND WRITE ACTIVITIES in each booklet:CHILLOUT CHALLENGE 1:Students recall and write all the verbs in English from an ITALIAN prompt - the ITALIAN verbs are in alphabetical orderCHILLOUT CHALLENGE 2:Students recall and write all the verbs in English from an ITALIAN prompt, with the verbs appearing in random, rather than alphabetical orderCHAMPION CHALLENGE:Students recall and write all the verbs in ITALIAN from an English prompt - this really does put their knowledge to the test - and is great for practising spelling in ITALIAN tooI've classed the pack as suitable for ages 11-18, because it really does depend on when your students began ITALIAN, the level they are currently working at, and the level they are aspiring to.
