Heidi Sant - Jeu de 7 Familles: Paris (novice-low+)

Cemetery Scavenger Hunt: Rachel Cicioni (Levels Intro-2/3) I hide posters of tombstones with QR codes on them which direct students to websites about famous people buried at Père-LaChaise. Then assign them to small groups and send them out into the school to find them with a form to fill out. On the form is a place for them to write the name, dates of life, and what he/she is famous for on the form. once they're found all of the tombstones and completed the form they return to the classroom. The first group to return with a perfect and completed form wins a prize. I do this with my French Club, but can see it done with classes too. If devices to scan the codes are not available, it could still be done by eliminating the codes and writing the information on the tombstones. I could also be interesting to have one class create a cemetery for another class to use. Maybe do a little report on the person with the tombstone on top of it... If you do a fun variation that worked well for you please let me know.

Jeux et activités ludiques pour FLE - JCassada
The following three activities are made by me with ideas I found on the internet. I have made them my own to work with my French I and II curriculum. I teach using Bon Voyage textbook for my Units. The "Les Jeux" is a PowerPoint of "authentic(ish)" games a French class can play in down time or on testing days to blow off steam. The "You Say We Pay" is another game I developed for my French I classes. The directions are on the opening slide. Finally, the Dubsmash is an end of the 1st semester project that utilizes French songs, the App Dubsmash, the App Splice. Students lip sing the lyrics to French songs of their choosing.

Flashcards: Alphabet, Shapes, and Colors - Catherine Ousselin (PDF/Publisher) First day / week activity: There are 15 shapes to print out on cardstock of different colors. Cut the shapes and place one of each in plastic bag (or paperclip). Make about 30-35 bags of cards. I use them to start the class by asking students to find the color I call out (starting with cognate colors) and placing them in order on their desks. Every 3 cards, I check for comprehension: #1 est bleu ou orange? #3 est vert ou rose? We repeat the colors and even create some basic sentences: #1 est bleu. After all 15 colors, cards are reshuffled and I go through the set again, but quickly, checking for comprehension every 6 cards. Students pick 5 cards that they can say fairly well. In partners, students call out 5 colors to their partners who have to find them in their bags. OR a simple question: C'est bleu ou rose? OR: Bleu ou rose?

Shapes: Identify cognates first: Le cercle est bleu ou rose? When a new shapes comes up, I draw it or find it in the room. They can practice 5-6 shapes as they did with the colors. Students learn all 15 shapes and colors and how to use "est" at a basic level.

Quick Game: Choose 10 cards (easy colors) with the students. Head-to-Head with partners, they each place their 10 cards on the table. Lift the hands in the air. Teacher calls out color, first student to find and lift it wins the match. Students place hands behind their head, they hug themselves. Great way to use body parts. This gets competitive!

Alphabet and phonics / Written Using blank (no lines) white paper and colored pencils, students fold the paper three times and have 16 spaces. Box 1 is for name, date, and activity name. For each box, I make a statement: Le cercle est bleu. Students draw a blue circle and show their partners they got it right. Check for comprehension every 3-4 boxes. Repeat colors, shapes and then create basic statements: Le cercle est bleu. #4 Rose ou vert? Cercle ou triangle? Next: We brainstorm on how the sentence will be written. State the sentence for box 1: Le cercle est bleu. Then, write the first sentence in box #1: Le cercle est bleu. As I write each word, I say it and spell it out. Students write with me. Lots of "E" to help solidify the pronunciation of the letter.

Publisher (PC program) version: Not everyone has Publisher, but it is a good program for drawing.
