Included in this pack are five activities that can be used with multiple levels. I have taught multi-level classes for a number of years and find it minimizes the craziness to give everyone the same project with different requirements.
These activities are in Word format, so that you can tailor them to your specific neeeds. They are written for French but could be adapted to other languages.
1. Alphabet book project. I have used this project at the beginning of the year, but you can customize it for other parts of the year. For this project, students choose a letter and a specified number of words in the target language that start with the letter. Levels 2+ write sentences to go with each word; level 1 learns some words that are meaningful to those individuals. Students create a scrapbook page for their letters. After the pages are turned in, the teacher can compile them into a notebook to create a class book. Included is a sign-up sheet (one for each letter) and a version for French I, II, and III. (You may need to modify the requirements for letters like X, or just remove them altogether.)
2. Book cover project. This is for the beginning of the year - I don’t really think it would make sense at any other part of the year. Included is one document that tells what is on the front cover, spine, and back cover for each level (I-III) and rubrics. As books are starting to be phased out, I also think this project would work/could be modified for a notebook or folder dedicated to the class.
3. “I am” poem. I have used this at the beginning of the year, but it would also work well later in the year. The “poem” is a non-rhyming prose where students can describe themselves, tell about things they do/don’t do, things they like/don’t like, etc. Included is one document each for levels 1, 2, and 3, with specifications.
4. Puzzle project. For this activity, each student received an outline of a large puzzle piece. The puzzle piece is not included in this pack because I don’t own the rights to one, but you can find one with a quick Google image search of “puzzle piece.” For this project, students list words/phrases/sentences that describe them, and include an image representation of each word. At the culmination of the project, I post all of the interlocking puzzle pieces on the wall with the words “Ma pièce du puzzle,” and I am including the outlined letters in a document. Included is one document each for levels 1, 2, and 3 with specifications, plus the bulletin board letters in Rockwall Extra Bold font (you can change them) - they are white letters, outlined in black. You can change the font and print on differently-colored paper, or you could have kids color them in their downtime (i.e. after a test, early finishers).
5. Vocabulary diorama. For this project, students choose a scenario, illustrate it (could be 1D or 3D), and label important vocabulary in the scene. Students also have to include pertinent phrases that would be used in the scenario. This is a good project to do towards the end of the year, and it works especially well with a multi-level class because students can work on it during class. I have only used it with level 2-3, but I know it could be used with other levels, possibly modifying the requirements. This package only includes the level 2 version both as a project and a 1-day activity, as well as a sign-up sheet with many possible places. You can edit it as you wish.
