Hello Richard, I have purchased a few of your French activities. Thank you for creating such good stuff.

I'm also looking for tests for my French class. Anything you have to sell a new overwhelmed high school teacher of 3 subjects, would be appreciated!

Thank you,

Sheila,
I will attempt to put up more simple fill-in the blank worksheets that can double as tests, depending on how the teacher sees fit.

Some B'ship is played with a grid w the coordinates on the left and along the top. A-H and 1-8. Students plot "ships" on those coordinates (in the boxes). They then call the coordinates to see if they have hit their opponent's ships. B4, A7, etc. These can also be subjects and verbs Yo//lavo el coche; Maria//come el sandwich; along the top and left rather than letters and numbers. Now, if your game has only words, each student selects ten verbs as his "ships" (and marks the "moi" column) and asks the appropriate question to "hit" As-tu prepare les devoirs? As-tu travaille? Each taking a turn asking questions until one has "hit" all ten of the opponent's ship. Kids love it. They know the grid B'ship so the words version is just a step beyond. Let me know how it works for you! :-)

Hi Richard,

Thanks so very much for sharing this activity. My students loved it! I have a couple of questions, though...
1) For "monter dans le tour", did you mean "la tour", or is it "monter dans les tours", (to rev up an engine". I haven't heard of "monter dans le tour".
2) Also, I'm not sure what you mean by "sortir dans la voiture". Is it "sortir de la voiture" or "sortir en voiture"?
Thanks!

Hi, Richard,

Perhaps I need to approach my question this way:

1. You ask the students to write 1-15 in their notebooks. What, exactly, is the purpose of this step?

2. You *then* say that you give each student a page with the number of a specific question. What question is this? Is it one of the direct object pronoun statements?

3. The students throw the "snowballs". I get that. :) However, are students uncrumpling 15 different sheets of paper, and writing the responses of the other students in their notebooks according to the first step?

As they receive a snowball, they do that numbered problem in the notebook. #2 is the starting point when each student gets a page to start, then crumples it. Then when finished, most students have answers 1-15 in their notebooks. They do NOT write on the ccrumpled sheet.

I should have clarified the activity about which I was inquiring. It is the snowball activity for direct object pronouns.

Thanks, again!

Hi, Richard.

I like the idea of your activity. However, there is one thing I'm not understanding: Why do students write 1-15 in their notebooks if they answer only one of the questions?

Thanks!

Then the St crumbles the paper and, aiming below the neck, tosses the "snowball" to another student. St 2 uncrumples the page and enters the next one into his notebook. :-)

I need a few more instructions for this game. I think I have to pick one or two students to be the suspects? And do they need to prepare their alibi in advance? etc. I'm not familiar with the game, but I'd love to use passe compose to play games. Can you give me more background? Thanks.

Two or more students leave the room and prepare their "alibi" (by coming up w answers to the questions and anticipating follow-up questions while the other students think of follow-up questions to ask to try to trap the "suspects". Then the first suspect comes in, answers questions (including follow-up questions). When the second suspect is grilled, the "interrogators" then compare their answers to see if the "alibi": holds water.

Hi! I teach introductory French at the middle school level, and I also teach Reading - and the Reading duties have me out of the classroom more often than I'd like. I'm looking for substitute lesson plans for non-French speaking subs. Do you have anything like that?

Richard-
Do you have the more typical conservative dress of Celine Dion available? Perhaps a guy can pull this one off more than I can. LOL! If I can change the image, I can worry about that. I also wouldn't mind being able to change it to Carla Bruni or a more contemporary spotlight personality in a francophone culture. Any of the 3 options would be great. Is that possible? If not, again... I understand.

No, I think they do that so that you can get a glimpse of how the page might work, but not enough so that you can copy it; which is nice for the author, but frustrating for the viewer.

Richard,

I bought both sets of adjective dominoes you posted originally. I haven't used them yet though. Was there a problem with one of them and how do I get a new copy without having to pay again. I have bought quite a few of your resources and really do enjoy using them in class!
