Beginning French Colours / Colors PowerPoint lesson presentation, printable games, activities, a worksheet, crossword, and wordsearch. Introduction and review of 11 French colour (or color) words. Speaking and writing activities. The colours are introduced using the questions 'C'est quelle couleur?' (referring to the colour itself) and 'C'est de quelle couleur?' (referring to the colour of objects / animals etc). The presentation suits learners who are new or fairly new to French but it also includes teaching points about female and plural forms of the colour adjectives, which you can use if appropriate for your class, as well as an introduction to the words for 'light' and 'dark' colours.
The PowerPoint is included within the Zip file in two versions, one with US spellings (color etc) and one with UK spellings ('colour' etc). With almost fifty slides, the presentation also includes pronunciation tips, an interactive Kim's game and a slide for a splat game, where children can 'splat' the colour that's been said in French by the teacher. Children are also invited to show the teacher classroom objects of a particular colour so if they already know the name of some classroom objects this will help. Alternatively, they could learn some for this activity.
The Four in a Row game (which requires to be printed in colour!) works well in either 11 x 17 (A3) or letter size (A4) and can be used with the colour word cards. Use different colour paper or card when printing the word cards so that opponents can play with a different colour set. Alternatively, print the cards in colour. Students put their cards in a pile, taking the top one and choosing strategically which space to place it on (as long the colour on the space matches the word on the card!). Or laminate the board and students mark on their initial with a dry-wipe marker if they correctly say the colour in French. First to get four in a row - vertically, horizontally or diagonally - is the winner. There are also 8 cards for games of bingo and/or tic tac toe (noughts and crosses) and a 20-card 'I Have...Who Has?' game / loop game. This latter game also includes 'light' and 'dark' colours for an extra challenge.
The attractive worksheet is included with and without a word bank for support. Although it is in colour, it is not necessary to print it in colour as students will recognize the objects and be able to work out what colour they should be. Answer keys are included for the worksheet, crossword, and wordsearch.
All printables are included in a PDF within the Zip file. An instruction page is also included.
