This unit presents activities and description of what one was like when young (being wistful here). It also segues into the imperfect tense since it's used primarily to describe the past and to talk of habitual and repeated actions (like going to the playground, taking naps, listening to stories, etc.
Student notes and guided notes on youth vocabulary and imperfect conjugation and use
Several practices to reinforce the conjugation of the imperfect- I also have students cite a reason why the sentence requires the imperfect using the notes as it preps them for when we combine passé composé and imperfect later
There is a reading called "Princess Pearce" where she is guarded in a tower by a dragon and her valiant prince (me) must come to rescue her. Change the names if you wish (of course). The reading is more imperfect practice- she waited a long time, she was sad, he was scared, he was hiding, they lived happily ever after, etc
There's also a composition with organizer and rubric that asks students to talk about their childhood. In the past I have had them create digital scrapbooks with narration to assess the same skill as the composition. If interested, I'll happily type up my hand-written notes and share.
There's also a unit test with listening script
