This French speaking activity is a fun way to practice with the present tense of avoir and être. It's perfect for beginning core classes, but you can use the full-French version with your immersion students, too.

Students use the common French verbs avoir and être to communicate in French. Also included is a speaking rubric and a printable sheet with these questions that you can use as a speaking assessment or as a follow-up homework assignment!

This resource includes:

*Printable vocabulary page

*Find someone who... with English directions

*Find someone who...with French directions

*Oral evaluation sheet (or follow up homework assignment) with printable practice page for students using Est-ce que only + a sheet with Est-ce que and inversion

*2 Grading rubrics One in French and one in English

*Numbers you can print and put in a box to have students randomly answer questions

Vocabulary used is basic in most French 1 books, but to make your job easier, a printable vocabulary sheet is included! If you have advanced learners, I have also included some less common terms and a second activity that you can use that incorporates these words!

Vocabulary used:

avoir expressions

avoir peur de avoir de la chance

avoir envie de avoir besoin de

avoir soif avoir faim

avoir _____ ans avoir l'intention de

avoir froid avoir chaud

adjectives with être :

grand petit

sportif créatif

paresseux bavard

travailleur * fainéant*

en retard à l'heure

timide heureux

joyeux en colère

*Less common adjectives are great for advancing beginners. There is a basic adjectives activity for beginners.


The students move around the room asking classmates about themselves and their friends/family. If a classmate responds with positively in a complete sentence, he/she puts her initials. If the response is negative, the classmate still needs to respond with a complete sentence, but does not sign the paper. Activity continues until all boxes are filled.

As a follow up, I collect the papers and call on the students who have signed the papers. It allows them to practice before being asked to speak in front of the class, and it holds them accountable so they are not just signing their names without really participating in the activity.
