No prep printables for practicing French Calendar (Le Calendrier) vocabulary: 3 worksheets, 3 crossword puzzles and a wordsearch, with differentiated versions of almost all of these fun, printable activities. Students will practice months of the year (les mois de l’annee), days of the week (les jours de la semaine), saying the date (la date), and practice key phrases such as ‘Quelle est la date?’ and ‘C’est quel jour?’ Answer keys are provided for all.
This packet is available as part of my great value French Calendar Bundle, along with a substantial PowerPoint lesson presentation and bingo game and printable games and activities:
French Calendar BUNDLE (Days, Months, Dates)
The first two worksheets come in differentiated versions, using a star code. The one-star versions are for younger, lower ability, or less experienced students. They include sentence starters and / or less challenging questions. The second worksheet is more challenging than the others, with a very short reading comprehension and questions related to yesterday’s and tomorrow’s date. The third worksheet (Anagrams) is not differentiated.
All 3 crosswords come with and without supporting word banks. The wordsearch comes in 2 versions too, one for older or higher ability students where they can write the French words on the lines once they have found them in the wordsearch and an easier version with the first three letters of the French words provided to start students off.
Within the Zip file are two PDF files, one containing the worksheets and the other the puzzles. An alternative UK date format version of the anagrams worksheet is included at the end of the file. All the other resources can be used in any English-speaking country and therefore do not require alternative versions.
The puzzles include:
A simple crossword for days of the week
A simple crossword for months of the year
A larger crossword combining days of the week and months of the year
A wordearch for days and months
Answer keys for all 4 puzzles
As the first crossword is small, two of them are included on one page for your convenience when printing.
