Hi! I have purchased several items from you. I love your work and my students have benefited greatly. I am now teaching an 11/12 French class. I was wondering if you teach seniors and if so, if you have presentations created for your class. I'm looking for verb tenses for that level such as plus que parfait, conditionnel present and passe, futur anterieur etc All of them! I have tons of activity sheets but I'm looking for ppts to actually teach the verb tense...when to use it, examples ect.
Thank you in advance,
Sheila

Sheila,
Thanks for contacting me - so glad to hear that your students are learning. :) Unfortunately, I don't have products like the ones you're looking for. Those are tricky tenses to teach. If you can't find anything on TpT, maybe try googling what you're looking for (if you haven't already). In terms of teaching the grammar, I do like the book "Practice Makes Perfect, French Grammar Tenses.
Happy teaching!

Which subjects are you teaching in particular and which levels of French? Do you have books to help you out? If you could give me more specifics, I might be able to help or point you in the right direction. If you're getting ready in July, you're way ahead of the game already. Are there other veteran language teachers at your school who can help you out? Have you taught at all before or is this your very first year? It's definitely overwhelming for all teachers when you start out, so that's normal. If you can get your first week or two planned out before school, you're doing great. I'd be happy to chat more once I know more of what type of help you need. Best to contact me via email at worldlanguagecafe@gmail.com.
Hang in there - you'll do fine!

If you tell me what types of things you're looking for, I might be able to point you in the right direction or at least give you some ideas.

Hello Sherry,

I see you are a teacher of Italian, as well as other languages.

Would you be interested in custom recordings, done by me in my Tuscan/Florentine accented Italian, for listening comprehension? I am planning to post some audio recordings of female character monologues in Italian and British English that would be of use to teachers of Italian and ESL/EFL, and am also open to specific requests from other sellers for Italian and English Language Arts custom recordings.

We could collaborate by associating your textual materials with my audio pieces so that either of us would cite the other for related materials for individual items. It would make our individual efforts more marketable.

Please let me know if you would like to explore this.

Thanks!

Dear Liquorice Allsorts,
Italian really isn't my specialty. I just adapted one of my French/Spanish products for Italian. It's speaking situations that all are in English, but could be used in an Italian classroom.
So unfortunately, I don't think it would be a good fit. Best of luck with your selling!

Dear Buddy,
Thanks for purchasing another one of my products. Wasn't the speaking rubric included? It should have been at the end of the packet. Could you check and let me know if it is there? I will send it to you if you didn't get it. I usually use that rubric and write down any errors that the students make alongside those categories. I put checks in the appropriate space for each answer and then look at where the checks are overall to determine the final grade. I usually weight the speaking section of the exam 20 points. You can also use the questions to do an oral assessment each quarter and count it as a test grade. Hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions. If you could rate the products that you purchased, I would really appreciate it. Thanks and
happy teaching!

Dear Ed,
Thanks for purchasing my product. Glad to hear that you like it. Feel free to ask me any questions or send any feedback over email.
I invented golf for my classroom because I wanted a new game to play to make sentence translation a little more fun and to get my students used to checking over their work. Here's how it works:
Set up the students in pairs and give each pair an A sheet and a B sheet. If you have an odd number of students, you can form a group of three and give two students A sheets and one student a B sheet.
Have the students fold the sheet so that their partners answers are on one side and their sentences to translate are on another side. At the top of the sheet are the sentences for the each person to translate.
The students each try to translate the first sentence on a sheet of paper. Then their partner checks it over. If the sentence is correct on the first try then the student receives a score of 1 (or a hole in one). If the sentence is not correct, the partner underlines the errors and the student tries to fix it. Once he has corrected the errors, he shows it to his partner again. If it is correct, the student receives a score of 2. For each time that the partner checks the sheet, add a golf stroke (a point). Then to get the final score, compare the number of attempts it took to par. For example, if par is 3 and it took 4 attempts, then the score is +1. If par is 5 and it took 3 strokes then the score is -2 (2 under par). If par is 3 and it took 3, the score is 0.
It helps to visualize a golf course on the board and show students lines to illustrate the strokes that a golfer would take. I hope that helps. If you have any other questions/feedback, please let me know. Thanks and happy teaching!

Hi Sherry,

I purchased the Mexican Lesson Plan: Teaching Mexican Culture Through PPT but when I downloaded it, I received a pdf file versus a ppt. Do you happen to have the ppt you can send me?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Dear Jena,
Not sure why it didn't come up as a Power Point. As I said in my listing, there are some other parts which I will email you if you send me your email address. There was only so much of the presentation that the site would let me load. I will also try to send you a PowerPoint version. Sorry for your troubles. My email is jerez121@gmail.com . Thanks for your patience. --Sherry

I e-mailed you as requested as I am still unable to retrieve the lessons/activities along with PPT. Not sure if you will receive as I got a message saying I used an invalid e-mail address.

Sorry and thank you for your help.

Also, the photos come in Adobe instead of a Powerpoint slide presentation. I'm sorry to be such a bother and am sure there is a simple solution that I have overlooked.

thank you for your help with this matter

I'm sorry to hear that you're having problems. The activities are at the end of the PowerPoint on one of the last slides. I had to do it that way since I wasn't sure how to upload both a Powerpoint and another document. On my computer, it shows up as a Powerpoint, so I'm not sure why it would show up as Adobe on yours. I will double-check to see if I can figure it out. You can email me at jerez121@gmail.com if you're still having problems.

Hi Sherry,
Thank you for your rating. I very much appreciate it. I have been trying to return the favor but am having some difficulty downloading your free offer in order to leave you a positive rating. I have hit download but its not showing up in my downloads so I cant leave a rating. Do you have a suggestion as to why I am having a problem? I have tried right clicking like they said and and saving onto the desk top as well but that didnt work either. I will keep trying. Thanks again. Amanda

Good to know that it's not working. It may be that you don't have the application to open it. It's a word document. I was able to open it on my computer when I clicked on it. If you send your e-mail, I can e-mail a copy to you. Mine is jerez121@gmail.com . Thanks --Sherry

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught high school French and/or Spanish for nine years and am certified in both languages in Massachusetts and New York. I'm currently home with my kids and am raising them bilingually. In my free time, I tutor/teach adult classes at a language center and teach pre-schoolers in my home.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a big believer in active learning. The more fun and interesting the lessons, the more the students get involved and the more language they learn.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

* One of sixteen teachers selected from across the country for a Fulbright-Hays Scholarship to travel and study in Mexico for a month. * Recipient of a high school education grant to create a foreign language library for our department.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

* Wellesley College - B.A. French, minor in Education, semester abroad in Paris, studying at Jussieu and with NYU program. * Harvard - Continuing Education class in Spanish * Middlebury College - M.A. in Spanish * Fulbright-Hays Scholar - traveled around Mexico for a month, studying the language, culture and people

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

While raising my two kids bilingually, I have watched the language learning process first-hand. Learning a language should be a fun, natural activity, not just a bunch of flashcards and verb charts. I strive to make every product fun for students and teachers, while using the target language as much as possible.
