This PowerPoint focuses on what one used to do at primary school.
Qu’est-ce que tu faisais à l’école primaire?
J’apprenais à lire/ écrire/ compter.
Je faisais du ski.
Je jouais au foot.
J’écoutais des histoires.
Je parlais avec des copains.
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. They then discuss the pronunciation (PPC = Perfect pronunciation Challenge). Stronger students then match the endings to the subject pronouns.
The next slides have the phrase and a picture. Use this to elicit the pronunciation, the English and to drill. The next section of slides are vrai- faux 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!
Having familiarised the students with these key phrases slides 28 and 29 focus on eliciting the formation and the endings for all subject pronouns. Slide 31 looks at the irregular verb être and the final slide covers all the information taught. This can be printed out and stuck into student's books.
