This is a short "getting to know you" project that I use with my 8th grade students while reviewing likes and dislikes (Ch. 2 of the Bien Dit textbook).
While the example is in French it can be easily adapted for any language: Spanish, Italian,
30 sentences for students to translate into French. Uses vocabulary from Discovering French nouveau bleu 1 unite 4 and practices the verb avoir, sentence writing, and subject pronouns. I typically use as a classwork activity.
This is an in-class project designed to practice the seasons, weather expressions, months, and activities. I typically set aside 2 1/2-3 40 minute periods for this project and can be used in any language.
