Product Description
These matching cards can be used either to elicit the months or to revise previous learning. As the months are so straight-forward, I have added cultural information and longer sentences to expose the students to new facts and vocabulary as well as practising the months.

French Expressions:

Mon anniversaire est le quinze septembre, c’est génial!
J’adore l’Halloween, donc j’adore le mois d’octobre !
Je fais des bonhommes de neige en janvier en France, c’est cool !
Poisson d’avril !
Je mange beaucoup d’œufs au chocolat en mars et avril car c’est Pâques!
La fête nationale a lieu le 14 juillet.
Les mois d’été sont juin, juillet et août.
Le 14 février, c’est le Saint-Valentin, c’est très romantique!
J’espère voir le père Noel en décembre!

You may choose to have different levels of challenge. For example,

Level 1 = match the cards and discuss the pronunciation.

Level 2 = match the cards , discuss the pronunciation and then have quick fire questions from French to English, whereby 1 student closes their eyes and their partner reads out the French cards which the student must translate into English from memory.

Level 3 = As Level 2 but the quick fire questions are from English to French.

Following checking there are 2 fun games to play, either pelmenism or a game I learnt in Japan called Karuta. In Karuta the students put the English language cards to one side and spread out the French cards in front of them. I then say the English and the students compete to touch the correct French card first. Whoever touches it first wins the card. The student with the most cards at the end of the game wins. The students love this game!
