This is a simple activity to get kids speaking! Students are given cards with an English sentence and the translation in French. They circulate around the room, giving various people the sentence in English, their partner says it in French, and then the student says whether they were right or wrong. They then switch cards and continue on to the next person.
-school subject/classes vocabulary
-the verb AVOIR (and the grammatical rule that says that AVOIR + a class subject does NOT use a definite article)
-the verb AIMER (and the grammatical rule that AIMER + a class subject DOES use a definite article)
I love it because:
-KIDS are the ones who check the speaking/grammar of other kids
-it gets kids speaking!
-it's a good "filler" activity, as it can range from just 1 minute to 5 or 6
