French Passé Composé (Être) Speaking Activity for Small Groups
This fun and engaging speaking activity is a great opportunity for students to practice the Passé Composé with être. It requires very little preparation time.
Set-Up and Play:
Students can do this activity in groups of 2 or 3. Each group needs a copy of the game board, one die, and 36 bingo chips (or the squares on page 6 cut up).
Players take turns rolling the die twice. The first number is the vertical number and the second number is the horizontal number. The player locates the box at the intersection of the two numbers and says the correct from of the subject and verb in the box. For more of a challenge he/she can be required to use the verb in a sentence.
If correct, he/she scores the number of points in the box. Once a box is used the player covers the box with a bingo chip and that box can’t be used again. If a player rolls the die and the corresponding box is taken he/she forfeits the turn.
Play continues between players until all the squares are covered. The winner will be the player with the most points once the board is covered.
