This PowerPoint presents the following expressions:
Je suis allé(e) à la plage.
Je suis resté(e) dans un hôtel.
Je suis parti(e)/ sorti(e).
Je suis entré(e)/ arrivé(e).
Je suis né(e).
Je suis mort(e).
Je suis descendu(e).
Je suis monté(e).
Je suis tombé(e).
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 grammar rules. They then discuss the pronunciation, the conjugation of être and consider how to remember these verbs before the teacher checks with the whole class.
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 have multiple choice questions.
The next slide has pictures of all the phrases and asks Qu’est-ce que c’est?. 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!
Then click on the links to the fabulous free website www.classtools.net where you will find a "random name picker". Instead of names I have written the perfect tense in French. The students pair up. I hit the "click to spin" button and they race to correctly translate the day that the picker lands on to win a point. This is lots of fun, is v competitive and can be loud!
The next slides deal with the extra e for feminine and the slide after that looks at the whole conjugation of être. Then there is a slide of MRS TRAVENDAMP verbs and finally a revision slide which can be used in the next lesson.
You may wish to reinforce this learning with my battleships game.
