Game Based Learning:
Every learner is a participant
Learning is fun
There is a specific outcome.
This packet includes game cards for both future prôche and passé composé reflexive verbs, a formative check-in sheet for students while playing, a color-coded guided notes idea, and a final assessment for Reflexive Verbs in present, future, and past tense.
I printed off six sets of these cards in different color card stock for a classroom set. This is pictured in the image. This file is only the digital form of one set and you have to make the copies and bags yourself.
The main concept in Game Based Learning is that learning feels like play. This lesson incorporates the game Go Fish to "play" with the grammar rules of writing reflexive verbs in Futur Prôche and in Passé Composé. Before beginning, students have a working knowledge of reflexive verbs in the present tense and a working knowledge of common reflexive verbs. Introduce the Future Prôche with the color coded guided notes and let students play 30-45 minutes with the formative check-in page where they record their phrases. Day Two introduce the Passé Composé with color-coded notes and let students "play" for 30-45 minutes while recording their phrases again. Based on the formative check-in sheets, decided if more playing time is needed on day three with a particular rule. Then, use the provided assessment as a homework grade or as a summative assessment. Using only this gaming method and no additional instructional strategies, my students scored an average of 85% on this assessment, with no notes, where I took off 2 points for every mistake in each phrase, and they had fun everyday in class.
Allez À La Pêche Rules:
The goal is to create a phrase of 4 in agreement: Je vais me coucher.
The student with the most phrases wins.
For 2 players: Deal 7 Cards
3 players: Deal 6 Cards
4 players: Deal 5 Cards (Best arrangement)
5 players: Deal 4 Cards
All other cards go in the middle.
Similar to go fish, ask a player if they have a certain card that would complete a phrase. If you have a 'Je' you could ask for a 'me.' If that player has the card they give it away and you would go again. If that player does not, they would say "Allez À La Pêche." If you run out of cards because other people have taken them, you re-deal cards from the pile. "Libre" cards are free to be whatever, similar to a wildcard. Once you get three of a "book" you can set those aside to protect them from being taken, but then you may not take them back later to use for another "book." This prevents stalemating a player by exchanging the same card back and forth. Record completed "books" of four on the team page. The player who has the most correct phrases wins and the teacher can use that sheet as formative assessment or can use those points as extra credit.
The red cards can be substituted to create a similar game for Passé Composé.
