‘Photo du Jour’ is a routine for the French classroom that helps students develop rich vocabulary and utilize deep thinking. Using photos with French language learners can be enormously effective in helping them learn vocabulary words and how to use them. The activity can be used across many grade levels and is suitable for grades 4 and up.
In this activity, students are presented with unique photos and asked to record their observations and emotional response to the photo. There are also opportunities to indicate any questions they may have. Students list relevant vocabulary that describes the photo by categorizing words by parts of speech. Finally, students write a descriptive sentence to communicate the subject of the photo.
