Practice 12 common Halloween words in French with these activities that focus on the target words. No sentences required.
I teach beginner FSL (Core French) to grades 5-7. I would use activities like this with my grade 5s who are brand new to French, or to reinforce vocab with grade 6s and 7s.
If you're looking for something a little more challenging for students who've already had a year of FSL, try this:French Halloween Speaking and Writing Activities
une araignée, des bonbons, un chat noir, une chauve-souris, une citrouille, un fantôme, un hibou, la lune, une maison hantée, un monstre, une sorcière, un squelette
• a dominoes game
• a small group draw-your-own "loto" game
• a partner quiz game
• a picture clue crossword
• some useful word wall cards
Please note that you will need to provide a class set of coloured counters in two colours to cover spaces on the game boards. You could probably use small unifix cubes.
How do you play dominoes?
Match the picture on the end of one card to the word it represents on the end of another card. This game links visual cues to vocabulary words which helps with comprehension and memorization.
These 6 pages of dominoes cards make one set of cards to use with one group of 3-4 students. Copy multiple sets onto card stock for the number of groups in your class. Cut apart on the wider lines.
No color printer?
No problem. You can easily print out the colored pages in "greyscale" aka black and white and photocopy from there. You can also just photocopy the pages in black and white from the color masters. Just start with a high quality master print for best results.
This product is discounted because these word wall cards also come in my Halloween Vocabulary Speaking and Writing product, however that set contains additional words, larger cards, and all the activities there are completely different and more complex.
