PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING FRENCH LANGUAGE SKILLS AS WELL AS PRACTICING ESSENTIAL FRENCH STARTER VOCAB AT HALLOWEEN!
FRENCH STARTER VOCABULARY HALLOWEEN GAME CARDS
with WHOLE-GROUP QUIZ really do help to create a lively language learning environment. Students can develop, embed, reinforce and refresh their vocabulary and knowledge of high-frequency FRENCH VOCABULARY in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, independently of the teacher.
The cards and quiz have a bonus multi-focus on listening, speaking,
pronunciation, reading, writing and spelling. They also help students
identify cognates and words which may look similar to English, but
mean something different.
Students can play alone, in pairs or in small groups. There are lots of whole-group games to play too. Play the 60-question whole-group quiz either before or after students play the card games. It doesn’t matter if any of the words don’t feature in your immediate or even longer-term learning plan: the games are a great way of encouraging your students to engage with FRENCH using a range of skills, and to build their vocabulary at the same time. They are particularly useful as revision activities as students progress to new stages in their FRENCH learning around HALLOWEEN time!
SET 1 features vocabulary in the following word groups:
- Les salutations
- Les jours de la semaine
- Les mois de l'année
- Les quatre saisons de l'année
- Les nombres 0 à 31
- Les couleurs
- Quelques pays du monde
The resource itself comprises 3 non-editable files in a zipped format:
- game cards in both FRENCH and ENGLISH
- whole-group quick quiz
- whole-group quick quiz in pdf format that you can load on to a tablet or similar device which is really useful for more independent learning in the classroom, or if you're homeschooling.
The cards definitely take a bit of prep – printing and laminating. Laminating is certainly worth the effort and expense, as you will be able to re-use the cards for many HALLOWEENS to come. They will also take up quite a bit of your color printer ink – printing in black and white will work equally well, as students can easily identify the FRENCH and ENGLISH cards from the different fonts used for each language. The whole-group quick quiz activity is simply ready to go!
MERCI BEAUCOUP ET JOYEUSE FÊTE D'HALLOWEEN!
