PERFECT FOR CONSOLIDATING VOCABULARY AND DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS IN FRENCH!
MOTS CACHÉS are a fabulous way of encouraging learners to engage with the written word in FRENCH, refreshing and reinforcing language as they complete the grids.
This combined pack features 20 differentiated word searches, with each consecutive grid increasing in challenge. There are 10 FRENCH to FRENCH grids, where learners are prompted with FRENCH words, and look for them in FRENCH in the grid. For additional consolidation, each grid also features an ENGLISH word list that they have to complete, really putting their knowledge to the test! There are also 10 ENGLISH to FRENCH grids, where the prompt words are given in ENGLISH, and learners have to find the FRENCH equivalent in the grid. For additional consolidation and practice in writing in FRENCH, they also complete the FRENCH word list on each page. Learners can tell in which direction the words are written by looking at the arrow key on each grid.
There is an answer grid for each word search, so that learners can check their answers - or use for a little extra help if they need it! The word searches are in landscape format, as this mirrors the common direction of reading from left to right, facilitating learner engagement with the activity. I’ve also included FRENCH-ENGLISH reference sheets for a little additional support - you can either laminate this to share around small groups of learners, or give one to each learner
to stick into their learning workbooks as an all-year-round reference.
Use as starters, refreshers, plenaries or fun-time fillers at any time during the school year, as well as when you’re introducing days, months and seasons in FRENCH. For a real focus on those vocab groups, and to facilitate learner independence, photocopy all the grids as a workbook, and let learners simply work their way through. The workbook format is great for home learning activities too. Create an answer key booklet - one booklet for small groups of 3 or 4 learners is sufficient. If you create workbooks and answer key booklets, these are best prepared photocopied double-sided and with a double staple on the left-hand side. This format is far more reader, writer and learner-friendly than using a single-staple in the top left-hand corner for example.
MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON DIVERTISSEMENT !
