In this French language Back To School activity, students write responses to questions from a series of 7 French templates to create a poster about themselves. The template structure varies: some templates include sentence starters while others allow students to write in paragraph form.
Students decorate their work with their own illustrations rather than coloring graphics or cartoons. Makes a great display for the fall Meet The Teacher Night.
An optional art extension to incorporate into the project is included.
This project offers teachers a means for a quick diagnostic assessment of writing skills (spelling, capitalization, use of punctuation, vocabulary and grammar) as well as a project to use as an assessment of oral communication skills.
The length of the project varies depending on your students: the project can range from approximately 4 to 5 hours, which can span 3 days or even the course of a week, depending on how much time you allot. You may also wish to divide the oral presentation over two or three days, depending on the size of your class. (Teacher instructions for this project are written in English).
Suitable for Core French and elementary French Immersion Grades 3, 4 and 5.
