This PowerPoint introduces the verb "aimer" and several common "-er" verbs. Each verb is first presented by itself and then with the French text. These slides may be used with any textbook, but the corresponding text is Discovering French Bleu Unit 3. Roger Thomas
I use the first 2 slides to introduce the vocabulary completely in French. I go over each picture in detail, gesturing or acting out the picture. I want my students to hear the vocabulary word several times before they see them in print. After I have described all of the verbs on a slide, I have the students repeat all of the infinitives. I will also ask several questions, such as, "Est-ce que tu aimes _____?" or "Est-ce que tu aimes ______ ou _______ ?" I spend several minutes (about 10-12) on those first slides. Then I use the next slides to call on individuals to provide answers. I use TONS of repetition with any vocabulary group.

This a great slide presentation that I used with my French 1 class. They enjoyed it and it was good practice, too.
