This PowerPoint starts by eliciting the definitions of the infinitive (the 3 kinds of verbs are -er, -ir and -re) and conjugation. The next slide elicits the different subject pronouns. Slide 5 elicits the conjugation of Aimer and slide 6 elicits the rules for conjugating -er verbs.
The final slide resumes the rules for -er verbs and sets the following differentiated ask (this slide could be printed off):
All: Use colour, pictures, analogies etc to remember how to conjugate regular –er verbs. Write 7 sentences using regular –er verbs.
Most: Write 7 complex sentences for exercise, using connectives, adjetives, adverbs and opinions.
Some: Include regular –ir and –re verbs (see verb tables).
Regular er verbs: aimer = to like, arriver = to arrive, chanter = to sing, danser = to dance, jouer = to play, penser = to think, rêver = to dream, travailler = to work, voyager =to travel, détester = to hate, regarder = to watch, collectionner = to collect.
There is also a link to the fabulous Conjugation Back song on YouTube. Whilst this is for Spanish, it clearly illustrates the idea of conjugation.
