This packet contains 1 cover page, 2 explanation pages, 2 student worksheets, and 2 keys. It discusses gender, and the definite and indefinite singular articles. It can be incorporated near the beginning of the year, or as students progress and require more specific explanations as to the mechanics of the French language.
page 1: Explanation Page: le genre: Explains that gender in French is different than boy vs girl, and that there are some endings which sometimes give hints as to what gender a word is. (See my blog at: french1help.blogspot.com for the explanation.)
page 2: Activity 1: Students practice identifying word's gender by looking at their endings. They write M or F.
page 3: Key: (see free preview)
page 4: Explanation Page 2: le gendre et les articles au singulier: Gives a simplified explanation on definite and indefinite articles, in combination with gender.
page 5: Activity 2: Students practice identifying word's gender by looking at their endings or what type of word they are. They write the appropriate definite or indefinite singular article.
