Are you looking for a way to keep your students speaking French in the first few weeks of French I? Well then, this is your lesson. Keep students speaking in French and engaged while learning the alphabet.
Present the alphabet out loud for the notes and then transition into a listening activity and a speaking activity through partners. Finally, get your students to speak French outside of class by having them call GoogleVoice and spell various French names to your voicemail.
Your students will be sure to love learning the letters and use their cellphones while doing homework!
