PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS AND LEARNING ANIMALS IN FRENCH!
FRENCH ANIMALS GAMES CARDS are perfect for young learners of FRENCH. They provide lots of opportunities to learn a range of animals, both masculine and feminine, and really do help to create a lively language learning environment. Students can develop their skills in word recognition and recall, pronunciation, speaking, listening and reading in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, independently of the teacher. They’re a great way of introducing the concept of gender, and of looking at the indefinite article in FRENCH too.
It doesn’t matter is any of the animals don’t feature in your immediate or even longer-term learning plan: the card games encourage students to engage happily and confidently with FRENCH, to identify cognates and to begin to link spelling with sound in FRENCH. They also help learners begin to work out the meaning of unknown words using both visual clues and prompts, as well as linguistic ones. Along the way, they may even get to know some new animals!
There are 80 CARDS in total, which include 2 DECKS of 40 CARDS to enable you to vary and differentiate your games:
DECK 1: matching FRENCH & ENGLISH cards, with both the picture and the word. The ENGLISH cards have a different frame, with blackline pictures. To keep costs down, simply print all the cards using just black ink.
DECK 2: this pack features word-only cards in FRENCH, with a matching set of picture-only cards. This is really useful for a focus on word recognition and recall in FRENCH.
I’ve included a word & picture reference sheet for students to read through before they play. The sheet can be shared between small groups of children, or distributed individually for children to file in their workbooks or learning folders for future reference.
Play the games regularly for maximum benefit - they’re always really popular with young learners of FRENCH! Playing against a timer adds some extra fun - can children beat their own time record?
