Les soldats - Mon coquelicot
GREAT Remembrance Day activities!
This package includes two simple fold-and-staple booklet that children LOVE to write/fill in. They can be printed on 8 1/2"x11" paper, and are 5 sheets each. The students can decorate and colour in the cover, and fill in the eight subsequent half-sheet pages.
The first booklet (Les soldats) has is a simple book featuring "Les soldats" in 4 different contexts. For example, "Les soldats sont ______" (x2) and on the following pages, "Les soldats ont _________ ." "Je veux dire _______ aux soldats." "Je veux demander ______ aux soldats"
The second booklet (Mon coquelicot) features pages like, "Mon coquelicot est ___" (x2) with "Je porte mon coquelicot sur _____" on the following page. The final 2 pages are "Je peux garder la paix si je ____"
PRIOR to completing the booklets, I introduce the vocabulary, have a community circle, and brainstorm ideas on the SMART board/chart paper. Then, the children mill to music (i.e. walk around the classroom while listening to snip-its of French songs). When the music stops, they talk to each other about all the their ideas (en français, bien sûr)! After they've had a chance to talk about their ideas, they start writing their booklets.
(I encouraged my students to use a picture dictionary for unfamiliar words or to check for spelling.)
THEY ARE .pdf FILES!
