It doesn’t have to be hard to bring seasonal vocabulary into the classroom, but if you do, the work should be meaningful. Sure, it’s fun to decorate for the season, and all students love playing games, but isn’t it more effective when the new vocabulary helps them practice the skills you need to teach? Keep reading to learn about some French fall teaching resources that help students practice the skills they need to be successful in Core French or French immersion.
Sometimes it’s not easy to figure out just how to present new vocabulary terms. Write the room is a fun activity that helps visual learners and provides movement while requiring students to write the words themselves. Just place the word and image cards on the wall around the room. Give students a vocabulary sheet with the images of the words you’ll use. Then, have students go from card to card creating their own vocabulary lists.
These fun speaking and writing resources help students practice the concepts beginners need to master, and they do it using a fun fall vocabulary theme. Students practice verb conjugation of common verbs like -er verbs, avoir, être, faire, and aller with engaging activities and games.
Conjugating verbs and learning new vocabulary are a really important in helping students become better communicators. However, if students are going to become more comfortable with the language, and in turn, more proficient, then they need plenty of opportunities to speak. These speaking cards are a fun way to get even the most hesitant speakers to talk to their classmates. This set includes cards for fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving.
All of these resources and more are available in my French fall bundle.
