Sometimes flash cards come with indefinite articles and sometimes they come with definite articles. Now you don't have to choose. This bundle contains much more than flash cards, though. Take a look!
The number of pages is high because there are two versions of many of the pages. I was just a little indecisive and it was easy for me to make these alternates, so I'm not going to charge a lot more for that. I hope the convenience of choice is helpful to you.
I find that even when I teach this topic at the beginning of the year, it often needs some review. Here you will find some short activities to throw into a lesson plan for a bit of review as you are working on other themes, or when you need a break from a topic you've been studying for a while. Obviously, you can also use these materials to start teaching this topic from scratch, but I wouldn't necessarily call it a complete unit. You might need to add some of your own creative activities.
Table of Contents:
• One set of 24 large flash cards with definite articles: le/la/les
• One set of 24 large flash cards with indefinite articles: un/une/des

•A partner game which uses the sentence frame “Est-ce que tu as_____?” to help practice noun recognition (Can use indefinite or definite articles.)
•A speaking and writing activity using a sequenced word bank/graphic organizer to help create sentences to describe what is happening in the picture. Ex: "L'ordinateur est sur le pupitre." There is an alternate version for assessment. It also comes in a color version to use with a projector/document camera. This uses definite articles.
•A partner drawing game where students create their own questions to discover where an object is drawn on their partner's picture, ex: “Est-ce que le crayon est sur la table?” This uses definite articles.

These activities use the preposition "dans/sur/sous", but you could certainly add more to suit your students. These would pair well with some prepositions activities that you can find here:
