INCLUDED IN THIS PACKET OF GAMES:
FRENCH PETS VOCABULARY
This page features the 12 French pet words together with images of the animals, to be used to support students playing the games, if required. You can display it on a screen or print it. Included with and without background colour.
FOUR IN A ROW GAMES
2 different game boards. Print and laminate. First to get four in a row - vertically, horizontally or diagonally - wins. Students roll dice, then choose a pets word from that number column and say it in French. If correct, use a dry-wipe marker to put a symbol or initial in that box.
‘I HAVE…WHO HAS?’ GAME
This game reviews pets vocabulary in phrases alongside some numbers. Print and laminate the 30 illustrated cards, which form a continuous loop so you can start with any one. Distribute among players. First player reads the French side of one of their cards and then all players check if they have the matching number of the correct animal. If they do, they will reply in French, saying ‘J’ai…’ (I have...) or perhaps ‘Il y a…’ (There is / are…). These cards could also be used by individuals / pairs as a dominoes game.
AS-TU UN ANIMAL?
A game to get students out of their seats, having short conversations about pets. There are 36 game cards (18 identical pairs). Students are given a card each and must move around the room, trying to find the player with the matching card. To find this, one player asks “As-tu un animal?” or “As-tu un animal de compagnie?” if you prefer. The other replies with the information on their card (e.g. “J’ai un chien et un lapin” / “J’ai deux lézards” etc). The second player can then ask the same question or use “Et toi?” (“And you?”) before the first player replies with their information. If their information matches, they could say “Moi aussi!” Students who find their match could sit down to make it easier for remaining players to find their match. There are 2 versions of the cards. The first set is printed with the question in French, along with a sentence starter for the answer in French. You could use this for lower ability or younger students or those with less experience of French. The other set has words in English only. If required, you could use a mixture of the two sets for differentiation.
BINGO / TIC TAC TOE CARDS
Use these 8 different cards for a group game of Bingo (the teacher or a student could read out French pets words) or Tic Tac Toe / Noughts and Crosses, with students taking it in turns to say aloud a French pets word from their card. If cards are laminated, students could write on them with a dry-wipe marker.
