Then, when teacher and all students have written down a word, each student quickly says the sentence with his or her word choice. When all students have repeated the sentence, teacher says: “La prof dit . .” and repeat the entire sentence with word choice. Then teacher asks the class: “Qu’est-ce que la prof dit?” Class responds with whatever the teacher says, La prof dit: “Je porte un manteau quand il fait froid.” Then students raise their hands if they wrote the same word.
Do the example sentence first: Je porte un/une__________quand il fait froid. (clothing)
