TPR Story with French One Vocabulary
by Angie Torre
This French TPR story works well after the teaching of the classroom objects and some conjugations. It is about Charles, a bad student who creates problems for Marie. The visuals and the ridiculousness of the story keep the students engaged. Drawings are provided.
The 51-slide PowerPoint provides visuals for the pre-teaching section of the lesson during which students act out the words.
The story provides good comprehensible input because it models language in context, solidifies the meaning of verbs and vocabulary and helps students begin to write meaningful sentences. Students have many opportunities to hear, read and write the vocabulary as they act out the words, then the story, and listen to the story while looking at the corresponding drawings (provided). They are exposed to the language again and manipulate it by doing the following:
~answering true/false sentences
~putting events in order
~listening to and reading another story using the same vocabulary and, finally
~writing their own story using the vocabulary.
