FRENCH CONJUGATION FRENCH GRAMMAR FRENCH HIGH-FREQUENCY VERBS PLUPERFECT, FUTURE PERFECT, CONDITIONAL PERFECT TENSE CONJUGATION WORKBOOKS. The focus is on 25 high-frequency French verbs, including regular, irregular, modals and reflexives. Each of the three workbooks with 150 quick conjugations and 3 differentiated conjugation challenges. With the conditional perfect tense, although the tense is generally straightforward conceptually, and students are then able to identify, predict and produce the more practice with, and exposure to, them that they have, grammar books are not particularly consistent with grammatical terminology - we see this tense also called the conditional past for example - the English equivalent is I would have helped. The workbooks don't look at the rules for the use of tenses in French, their focus is solely on the conjugation of the individual verb across a range of pronouns.
I always give my students an answer key for this kind of workbook - they like to learn independently, and they can both self and peer assess with the key - and it also gives them another opportunity to practice conjugating the verbs. Each answer key book has six pages The quick recall conjugations are really popular with my students, and we use them in a range of learning contexts, such as practice during the introductory phase, free-choice activity in class time, home learning or sub lessons.
The structure of each workbook is:
* Two alphabetical verb reference lists: FRENCH-ENGLISH and ENGLISH-FRENCH, useful for longer-term reference too
* Three differentiated conjugation challenges, each with 50 individual conjugations:
CONJUGATION CHALLENGE 1: each verb is conjugated in FRENCH across a range of pronouns, with students writing the corresponding ENGLISH verb conjugation.
CONJUGATION CHALLENGE 2: here, the infinitive of each verb is given in FRENCH, specifying the target pronoun. Students write the corresponding verb conjugation in FRENCH.
CONJUGATION CHALLENGE 3: with this challenge, students write the corresponding FRENCH verb conjugation, and its infinitive form, from an ENGLISH prompt.
I use the NOTES & NEXT STEPS template to encourage my students to reflect on their progress - we revisit the conjugations, and the NOTES AND NEXT STEPS, regularly - sometimes students haven't quite embedded learning before it's time to move on, so revisiting for 10-minute 'chunks' is really popular with them. We also use it to guide and inform whole-group discussion on progress and learning in general, which is a really useful activity too. The answer key has six pages and is in booklet format. Answer keys are essential for this kind of learning activity, and my students prefer to work and learn independently, assessing their own progress, either individually, in pairs or in small groups.
MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BONNE CONJUGAISON !
