As a French teacher, you know that it's extremely hard to find anything for your students to do when you're out. I took 3 days off when I got married at the beginning of the year, and at that point, what did my level 1 students know? Not much! I left them this packet of word searches of the vocabulary they did already know which required to write the clues in French, then find them in the puzzle in French. It was a simple, yet helpful vocabulary review/reinforcement activity to keep them busy for a day or two if they had extra time after completing the other activities I'd left for them. Use this for a substitute, extra work if students finish early, or just as a follow up after teaching new vocabulary. You don't have to use this packet as a packet either! Download this and then use the one(s) you want when you want.
