PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS AS WELL AS PRACTICING AND REVISING 297 ESSENTIAL FRENCH VERBS!
This combined pack of FRENCH VERBS GAMES AND ACTIVITIES SETS 1, 2 AND 3 features 297 high-frequency FRENCH verbs, and offers an interactive and communicative alternative to 'traditional' vocabulary and grammar drilling activities. The games and activities really do help to create a lively and multi-skill language learning environment.
The alphabetical FRENCH-English reference lists of all 297 verbs work well as a learning support resource, and also as a whole-group reading out loud pronunciation and warm-up practice. The cards are versatile, and can be used for a number of language learning games; I’ve described several games you can play and ways you can use them in the classroom. They're great for a ready-made quick vocab quiz too! The game card template lets your students put their knowledge of FRENCH verbs to the test as they create quiz cards for each other.
There are three differentiated RECALL AND WRITE ACTIVITIES in each workbook:
Students recall and write all the verbs in English from a FRENCH prompt - the FRENCH verbs are in alphabetical order
Students recall and write all the verbs in English from a FRENCH prompt, with the verbs appearing in random, rather than alphabetical order
Students recall and write all the verbs in FRENCH from an English prompt - this really does put their knowledge to the test - and is great for practicing spelling in FRENCH too.
I've classed the pack as suitable for Grades 8-12, but it really does depend on when your students began FRENCH, the level they are currently working at, and the level they are aspiring to. The games and activities are particularly useful as students prepare for examinations, and for the transition period between learning stages.
The cards take a bit of prep – printing, laminating and cutting out. Laminating is certainly worth the effort and expense - you will be able to use the cards for years to come. The REFERENCE, RECALL AND WRITE booklet has 18 pages, and is best photocopied double-sided as a workbook for students to work through either in directed class time, or as independent learning at home. Encourage your students to complete the NOTES AND NEXT STEPS TEMPLATE to help them reflect on their learning, and to set progress targets.
MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON DIVERTISSEMENT !
