French Irregular Verbs Speaking and Writing Powerpoint Activity
This is a great activity to get students saying (or writing) complete sentences in French with correct verb forms that has them demonstrate that they know the meaning of the verb and can come up with sentences quickly. There are two possible activities.
1.Students write sentences based on the subject and infinitive on each slide. The teacher begins each slide with a single click that
reveals an infinitive and a subject pronoun. Students then see 4 possible verb forms. They should write the subject and correct verb form from the choices. A second click shows a circle around the correct form for students to verify their answer and a question word. Student then complete sentence with an answer to the question word.
2. Two students go to the board (where powerpoint is projected) and each has a fly swatter. The teacher begins each slide with a single click that will reveal an infinitive and a subject pronoun. Students then see 4 possible verb forms. The first to swat the correct form wins the first part of the round. A second click shows a circle around the correct form and question words. The winning student must say a complete sentence with the subject, verb and answer to the question word. If the sentence is correct, he/she remains and a new student is called up to play the next round. If the sentence is not correct the opponent gets a chance to win and continue against a new challenger if he/she can say a sentence that is correct.
All of the animation is set up for these activities. All the teacher has to do is click.
