This simple French play is based on the story of Little Red Ridinghood. It includes illustrations of the story that can be used to create a book of the play. This play is most suited for French immersion students in grades 1-2 and for core French students in grade 2-3. It is not a patterned play but includes a fair bit of repetition.
One of the biggest problems I have, as a French Immersion teacher is finding material that my students can read and understand. My plays are designed while keeping in mind that these students only have a limited vocabulary and familiarity with limited grammatical structures. My plays and activities are intended to use the vocabulary and structures that are most familiar to these students (ex. using mostly present tense, using 'tu' instead of 'vous' for this particular play).
It can be used for many lessons as students read it, become familiar with the vocabulary, and practice it in groups. The play also provides a simple and familiar subject about which to orally ask students questions in order to practice answering in full sentences orally and in writing.
The play can be presented to parents, and even tied in with art by having students paint scenery to accompany the presentation. In addition, you may wish to have students write invitations to parents The reading and writing activities include drawing activities, reading activities where students must select the correct word to complete a sentence, activities where students must put the words of a sentence in order, 'oui' ou 'non' activity, position preposition activities (ex., sur, dans), and written questions. The written questions start by introducing students to 'qui' questions and gradually introduce other types of questions, reviewing along the way. Students can 'graduate' from one question to the next without being overwhelmed with all types of questions at once. and administration.
Nobody is eaten in this version of the story.
