Is your board covered in words and chart paper? Do you share a classroom? This is great for students who have had at least a year of Core French/FSL. There is a lot of vocabulary so it wouldn't be suitable for first year beginners. Check out the thumbnails for a closer look.
***This product has been revised. It now includes smaller word wall cards in two sizes at no increased cost.
The Halloween themed graphic organizer/portable mini word wall is a powerful visual for your students. It took me hours to create this specific list of words and now you don't have to! The words are categorized and sequenced to create fun sentences in French. Students choose a word from each category as they go from left to right across the page. Ex: "Un fantôme parle avec un monstre." There are many possible combinations and I hope you will add some more words as a class.You can teach the vocabulary with the flash cards and other activities I explain in the instructions. Your students will think French is easy!
While not necessarily a unit, this variety of activities will help your students move step-by-step from pronouncing and understanding words to speaking and writing their own sentences. There is something for each step of the way. You may need to add some of your own practice activities, or you may need to take some out. It depends where your students are at. Even though there are no specific lesson plans, there are several pages of ideas and ways to use each of these activities. If you teach FSL (at 100 minutes a week), you will probably need a few weeks to go from learning the vocab to using it in speaking and writing.
