A fun way to review Christmas in the Sand vocabulary and its meaning in French.
Cut up and laminate all jigsaw pieces for durability. Students have to match each word with its picture, word in French and phonetic transcription in English.
This task can be done individually, in pairs or in small groups.
This activity is great as an introduction to phonetic symbols. Give a small group of students a few jigsaws, and trust them to intuitively put them together! Then you can explain the phonetic part of the activity, give out a vocab sheet to complete and make your students identify words with the same sounds, or different ways in which a sound is transcribed, etc.
Students really enjoy this fun approach!
