French From the Heart


This is a fun, light-hearted story about a boy named Pierre who goes shopping for a new pair of pants. The story is designed to provide novice French learners with comprehensible input related to French clothing and shopping.

The reading includes clothing vocabulary, adjectives, sizes, common phrases related to shopping, and the verbs porter, acheter, and essayer.

In addition to the reading, the download also includes several extension activities: comprehension questions, a dictée, a listen-and-draw activity, and a writing prompt.

This story would work well with a thematic unit on French clothes and shopping, or as a stand-alone reading in your classroom library.

I hope you enjoy it!
