Used to always giving students a filled-in vocab sheet?
Kick-start the chapter with a Vocabulary Scavenger hunt. They can use previous knowledge and/or the textbook and/or dictionary and/or the internet to find missing words (NO ONLINE TRANSLATOR! But an online DICTIONARY is OK).
Location vocabulary has been added to enrich their conversations/language thorughout the chapter (I got tired of "aller au cafe" all the time).
Great way to preemptively cut out errors:
Have a peer double check their work and get points for finding spelling mistakes (peer-check!). But careful they might get those same points deducted if someone finds mistakes on theirs!
I like to print vocab sheets on COLORFUL paper so that they are harder to lose : )
