A short French oral activity for students upon returning to school after Christmas vacation. Students walk around the classroom and ask each other provided questions about activities they did on their vacation. (eg. Es-tu allé(e) au cinéma?) If a student did that activity on vacation then he/she orally answers the question (eg. Oui, je suis allé(e) au cinéma.) and initials his/her name on the paper of the student who asked the question. Students try and get initials for all questions. Once all students are done the teacher can then follow up with an oral discussion. Eg. Teacher asks: Qui est allé au cinéma pendant les vacances? And the student will answer: Marc est allé au cinéma.
This activity is great for oral dialogue, asking and answering questions (using inversion) and the passé composé.
