This PowerPoint gradually introduces the Future Tense.
The first slide 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 and rules. It is differentiated as follows:
All: Translate the phrases below. To make the future you need a stem and ending. What is the stem? What is the ending?
Most: Which stem is slightly different? Why do you think this is?
Some: Which endings do you think go with which subject pronouns: je, tu, il/elle/on, nous, vous, ils/elles. Endings: ons, as, ai ez, ont, a. QFQs!
* QFQ = Quick Fire Questions (students quiz each other).
Regular Verb Expressions:
Je jouerai au foot.
Je regarderai la télé.
J’écouterai de la musique.
Je mangerai un gâteau.
Je finirai mes devoirs.
Je vendrai ma voiture.
The next slides have the phrase and a picture. Use this to elicit the pronunciation, the English, the rule and to drill.
The next section of slides have multiple choice questions.
Then there are "what's missing?" 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!
Slides 22 and 23 revise the rule and check the endings for all sbject pronouns.
Slide 24 introduces irregular verbs.
Je serai acteur.
Tu auras beaucoup d’argent.
Il fera de la planche à voile.
J’irai en vacances à Londres.
Je verrai un film.
Nous pourrons aller à la plage.
Je viendrai chez toi.
Je devrai ranger ma chambre.
Then there is another Beat The teacher slide (see above) followed by What's missing? slides. The last slide revises the information covered and can be used at the beginning of the next lesson.
You may then wish to use one of my Battleships Games or my lotto game to revise/ reinforce this grammar.
