Use these French vocabulary building activities with groups of students who need to learn and practice specific vocabulary and what to say in everyday situations in French. 100 DIFFERENT SITUATIONS in which it is useful to have specific vocabulary are included. Each worksheet is only 10 cents! You can use these one page worksheets all year long with students at every level. They make for an easy, no prep lesson when you need to have a sub and you still want your students to speak French together. I've also used this type of activity a lot with my French club. If you want your students to practice writing and would prefer to opt for a silent activity, why not use them in a fun game of SCOOT? With 100 worksheets you'll have more than enough to put different vocabulary themes on each desk. Instructions are included.
Each of the 100 worksheets is only in French so they are perfect for both immersion and core French programs. The vocabulary themes are suitable for any age, from primary immersion through high school with traditional French as a second language kids. Each worksheet includes an image to illustrate the theme.
There are several ways I like to use these worksheets which are fantastic bell ringers and ice breakers. I love to have them on hand at back to school and toward the end of the year to use as review. All 100 worksheets are also included in my French Ice-Breaker Bundle for Back to School
SCOOT: Tape a different version of the worksheets to each desk or seat in your classroom. Choose vocabulary themes that your students should be familiar with. Students move around the classroom from seat to seat and will rotate through all of the worksheets. All students start at their own seat and take note of the worksheet they begin with. Students write something they would say in the chosen vocabulary theme and record their name next to it. They can’t repeat what another student has already written! When the teacher says BOUGEZ after a chosen amount of time (15 - 30 seconds or so will keep the game fast paced) students move to the next seat and start all over again with a different theme. Play the game until students make it to their original seat. It may be helpful to number the desks so that students will know which seat to move to next. You can always collect the sheets after the game to do a quick assessment if you wish. I’ve included an additional response sheet as the one page worksheet only has space for ten responses. (see ADDITIONAL RESPONSE SHEET included in the download).
SMALL GROUPS: Students work with partners or small groups to come up with short sentences using target vocabulary. Using the charts provided, students write down what they would say to the person indicated (doctor, postman, etc) and they write the name of the person who said it. Each person in the group should say at least one thing.
Qu’est-ce que tu dirais? What would you say? Short sentence
Qui l’a dit? Who said it? Name of student
AS A CLASS: Use worksheets as a whole classroom activity and have students circulate asking as many different people as possible to contribute things one says (des trucs qu’on dit) to different people and in different situations. Be sure to remind students to indicate the person who gave the response on his or her paper and encourage them not to ask the same student for more than one response.
With 100 different worksheets and each with a different theme, you can pick out one to use in practically any situation and they make for a fun way to review vocabulary. I always encourage my students to write down the new vocabulary they learn in categories.
When the worksheet is full you can call on individual students randomly and have them read the responses they liked the best stating who said them.
There is a one page worksheet for each of the vocabulary themes. I recommend printing them all out and putting them in a folder so that you have easy access when it’s time to make photocopies. Answer keys are not included as they are not applicable to this type of activity.
