The first slide quickly revises regular past participles using the following examples:
J’ai joué au foot.
J’ai fini mes devoirs.
J’ai vendu ma voiture.
Elicit from the students how to change the infinitive into the regular past participle.
Slide 3 explains:
If we take the verb faire and apply the rules for re verbs we get the following:
Faire – re = fai
+ u = faiu!
French doesn’t like this so the verb faire has the irregular past participle fait (which doesn’t follow any rules).
Slide 4 encourages the students to actively engage with the new vocabulary: working in teams, using their prior knowledge, knowledge of other languages and using a process of elimination to figure out the meanings. They then discuss the pronunciation (PPC = Perfect Pronunciation Challenge) and question each other (QFQs = Quick Fire Questions) before the teacher checks with the whole class.
The first slides have the phrase and a picture. Use this to elicit the pronunciation, the English and to drill.
Then there are multiple choice slides followed by Qu’est-ce que c’est? slides.
The final slide has pictures of all the phrases. This can be used for a Beat the Teacher game, which the students love! The teacher points to a picture and says a word. If it is the correct word the students all repeat it. If its the wrong word the students must stay absolutely silent. If they do, they win 1 point. If not, the teacher gets 1 point. Most points wins!
