PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a fun and engaging way for students to practice regular verbs in French. I call this shipwreck. The board has 100 squares and there are subjects and infinitives in each box. Students play against an opponent and choose a box. He then says or writes the correct verb form. If the opponent agrees that it is correct, the player gets to color in the square with his colored pencil, then it is the opponent's turn. If the opponent does not agree with the response the teacher is summoned to verify. If the answer is not correct the player loses that turn. When a player gets three boxes in a row of his color he gets a point, which is recorded on the bottom. Each player has a different color and employs a blocking strategy to try to prevent the opponent from getting three boxes in a row.

Excellent product. Students love playing games like this and they learn while doing it. What more could a teacher want?

Product Questions & Answers

On  October 23, 2012frenchymms (TpT Seller) asked:
Do the students see each other's boards? I'm confused about the set up. In my mind, I'm picturing a battleship type thing where they can't see each other's boards but it doesn't sound like it, based on the directions.

I'm also wondering how many students agree with each other but both are incorrect? This is a serious problem I have. They lead each other down the path of complete inaccuracy! What do you do about that?

Hello,
The board has 100 squares and there are subjects and infinitives in each box.Students play against an opponent and choose a box. He then says or writes the correct verb form. If the opponent agrees that it is correct, the player gets to color in the square with his colored pencil. If the opponent does not agree with the response the teacher is summoned to verify. If the answer is not correct the player loses that turn. When a player gets three boxes in a row of his color he gets a point, which is recorded on the bottom. Each player has a different color and employs a blocking strategy to try to prevent the opponent from getting three boxes in a row. To avoid students agreeing on an incorrect answer the teacher must circulate and listen to verify among the groups. The pairing of students is important as well. My experience has been that due to the competitive nature the players will attempt to verify if there is a slight doubt because the opposing player could possibly lose the square and the questioning student could win it.

I hope this helps,

I just rated your product for you and was wondering if you could return the favor. I just posted a French Fairy Tale Project to Review Verbs and Grammar. My seller name is Sherrill Schermerhorn.
Also, your game looks great. One idea that you might want to try, especially if you make more advanced versions for different verb tenses, is making an "A" board and a "B" board with the answers on it for the opposite board. That way, the students can't pick their questions based on the ones they know. Good luck selling your lesson plans! --Sherry
