We have designed a comprehensive words of the week program for your Grade 1 French Immersion class! Introduce five words a week, over twenty weeks, to familiarize your students with the Grade 1 high frequency words.
For a detailed overview of how we use this program, check out our blog post "How I Run My Mots de la semaine - French Immersion Word Wall Program".
This program contains:
- Instruction file with a detailed overview of how we use the program with our students, how to run the Smart Notebook lessons and quizzes, etc.
- 20 Smart Notebook Lessons to introduce the words
•Each lesson contains 5 interactive activities, three of which use voice recordings of the words
•Activity 1: Students click on a voice recording of a word and must draw a line to the word of the week that they think they heard. After hearing all five words, the words are then clicked and reveal the recording that matches the word.
•Activity 2: Click and drag the English word on top of the corresponding French word.
•Activity 3: Memory game with English and French words
•Activity 4: The word in French is shown and can be tapped on to hear the voice recording of the word. Students must then select which English word (of three) corresponds to the given French word. For an added bonus, students are working on their prepositional language, as the words « à gauche », « au milieu », and « à droite » are each above one of the English definitions.
•Activity 5: Students listen to a voice recording of a word and then spell it on the Smartboard.
•A link to the corresponding Quizlet online flashcards so that students can practice at home
- 20 Smart Notebook Collaborative Quizzes
•Each quiz contains 10 questions, the first five questioned are based on the the correct spelling and identification of the word and the next five questions focus on selecting the word of the week that makes the most sense for a given sentence.
- 12 Different Quiz Posters to facilitate conversations during the collaborative quizzes (24″ by 36″ size)

The Mots de la semaine program works very well with our Les mots fréquents - French High Frequency Words - Level 1 as the words are the same. We actually have our students play the games with Les mots fréquents throughout the week to practice the words that they are studying.
