This bumper pack of DINKY FRENCH TELLING THE TIME DOMINOES GAMES, Sets 1, 2, 3, features every analog clock time in FRENCH. The games will help your students develop their skill in telling the time in FRENCH in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, learning independently of the teacher.
There’s a bonus multi-focus on listening, speaking, pronunciation, and reading. They’re ideal for independent learning, and perfect for pair and small-group work. Students can work happily challenging themselves and each other to create a perfect domino time-sequence line, on the classroom floor or on a long(ish) table, by matching the times and the clock faces.
There are three levels of challenge and whole-group number games in each set:
- CHILLOUT Challenge 1 features the analog times in numerical order, 1-12
- CHILLOUT Challenge 2 features all the times in topsy-turvy order, which really
gets students thinking about how to tell the time in FRENCH
- CHAMPION CHALLENGE features all the times in topsy-turvy order, with the clock
faces first, so students really do need to know how to tell the time in FRENCH!
PLAY THE NUMBER GAME!
Vary your ’check’ tests by playing THE NUMBER GAME! For example, using the FRENCH-only reference time phrase list, call out a number in FRENCH, students locate the number on their list, and SHOUT OUT the English equivalent. For increased challenge, use the English-only reference list - recalling the correct time phrase in FRENCH really does put students’ knowledge to the test! Award extra points for perfect pronunciation, or spot-on spelling if students respond in writing on their mini-whiteboards - a very popular way of earning valuable extra points in team games! Students enjoy being quiz master too, and do come up with lots of extra ideas for awarding (or not!) extra points.
Play regularly as you work with telling the time to map both improved recall and word recognition, as well as increasing confidence. Play as warmers, starters and plenaries across the whole school year. Playing against a timer works well - I’ve found the range of timers and rousing tunes here:
really useful and popular, though there are of course lots of others also available for free online.
