French Families (La Famille Francais) unit BUNDLE contains a 70 slide PowerPoint lesson presentation (and PDF version), differentiated worksheets, crossword and wordsearch puzzles, and fun printable games and activities for Ma Famille vocabulary. Originally made for beginners / near beginners in Grade 3, 4, 5 and 6 but may suit other grades. The BUNDLE offers a big saving on the three individual resource packets that it contains. Please click on these links if you would prefer to purchase one separately:
Vocabulary covered includes: le frere (brother), la soeur (sister), le fils (son), la fille (daughter), le pere (father), la mere (mother), le bebe (baby), le grand-pere (grandfather), la grand-mere (grandmother), le beau-pere (stepfather), la belle-mere (stepmother), le demi-frere (stepbrother), la demie-soeur (stepsister), l’oncle (uncle), la tante (aunt), le cousin (male cousin), la cousine (female cousin), les jumeaux (twins), enfant unique (only child). ‘Mon’ and ‘ma’ are also used to say ‘my father’, ‘my sister’ etc. Students will also practice asking and answering questions about families such as Qui est-ce? (Who is this?), Tu as des freres ou des soeurs? (Do you have any brothers or sisters?) and Combien de personnes il y a dans ta famille? (How many people are there in your family?). Giving names, ages, and information about where people live is also consolidated alongside family vocabulary.
Worksheets and Puzzles: One of the three worksheets and the two puzzles are included in two versions to suit different abilities. This includes a vocabulary bank on some versions to support learners. Answer keys included for all.
Games: Four in a Row board game and card set, a 'I Have, Who Has?' ('Follow Me') or loop card (dominoes) set, and Happy Families Game (Jeu des 7 Familles).
4 in a Row: Print word card sets on different colored card stock or paper (or print the different colored sets) for pairs / individuals to compete against each other, laying down a card of their color on the correct person. Each of the family members appear twice on the board so children must think strategically to get 4 cards lined up in a row (horizontally, vertically or diagonally) to win.
Happy Families: Print cards in color and laminate for regular use. There are 10 cards in each family set. Each family is a different color, so pupils practice their French colors too. Choose maybe 4 to 6 French family words to practice and put these cards (from all seven color families) into play. Make players aware which ones are being used so they know which ones they must ask for to complete their sets. English and French word sets both included. Pupil instruction card included on the last page of the resource. Ideally print on 11 x 17 (A3) or use the 2 page version which is also included.
Loop Cards / Follow Me / 'I Have, Who Has?' Cards: 18 words appear in this continuous loop. Children can start at any point and could complete as a dominoes activity, or orally as a group or whole class. Multiple sets could be printed on different colored card for groups to race each other.
PowerPoint Presentation: A substantial interactive lesson presentation (around 70 slides) to introduce and consolidate key vocabulary. Recapping slides feature answers that appear on a mouse click. Slides for games of Splat and Bingo are also included. This is ideal for scaffolding the learning of beginners or near beginners. Now also included in an additional PDF format, without the mouse-click functionality, in case you don't have PowerPoint where you work.
The worksheets, puzzles, and games are all in PDF. The presentation is in an editable PowerPoint version and a non-editable PDF version.
