Includes the following family members: le frere (brother), la soeur (sister), le fils (son), la fille (daughter), le pere (father), la mere (mother), le bebe (baby), le grand-pere (grandfather), la grand-mere (grandmother), le beau-pere (stepfather), la belle-mere (stepmother), le demi-frere (stepbrother), la demie-soeur (stepsister), l’oncle (uncle), la tante (aunt), le cousin (male cousin), la cousine (female cousin) and les jumeaux (twins).
4 in a Row: Print word card sets on different colored card stock or paper (or print the different colored sets) for pairs / individuals to compete against each other, laying down a card of their color on the correct person. Each of the family members appear twice on the board so children must think strategically to get 4 cards lined up in a row (horizontally, vertically or diagonally) to win.
Happy Families: Print cards in color and laminate for regular use. There are 10 cards in each family set. Each family is a different color, so pupils practice their French colors too. Choose perhaps 4 to 6 French family words to practice and put these cards (from all seven color families) into play. Make players aware which ones are being used so they know which ones they must ask for to complete their sets. English and French word sets both included. Pupil instruction card included on the last page of the resource. Ideally print on 11 x 17 (A3) or use the 2 page version which is also included.
Loop Cards / Follow Me / 'I Have, Who Has?' Cards: 18 words appear in this continuous loop. Children can start at any point and could complete as a dominoes activity or orally as a group or whole class. Multiple sets could be printed on different colored card for groups to race each other.
These games have been uploaded in a Zip file which contains 6 PDF documents.
