Why do they work?
What makes them fun?
What kind of differentiation do they have?
How do you know what I need to teach these concepts?
All students need ample practice speaking, and for many students, this is the learning style they most need if they are to master the concepts. Speaking cards like these are so practical, and each pack has fun activity ideas so you can always keep it fresh!
How did it all start?
The units I create today all come with a grammar and vocabulary packet full of easy-to-understand notes, writing activities, and extra activities in case students need a bit more practice. See a few pages of the passé composé packet here:
Once I got that packet done, I made a Find Someone Who... activity. I thought they would groan and refuse to do it, but they loved it! In fact, they loved speaking so much that I made a set of speaking cards. It was my first, but it was so helpful that I made them for any unit I could!
