Students are practising answering 6 questions orally to achieve the following
LEARNING GOAL: I can briefly describe myself by presenting personal information to another person.
SUCCESS CRITERIA for presenting their answers include the following:
I can recognize simple questions and know when to respond.
I can use full sentences to answer questions.
I know the alphabet in French.
I know numbers from 1-31 and months of the year.
I can answer the questions when asked in a different order.
I practice my answers for correct pronunciation and fluency.
I can spell BOTH my first name and my last name.
I can give the last 4 numbers in my phone numbers in double digits (e.g. 1224 = douze vingt-quatre).
Attached is the oral activity that allows students to practice accountable talk. They roll the die (Roule) and respond (Répond) to the question that matches the number on the die. They are encouraged to practice their answers orally to increase their fluency by developing a sense of spontaneity as they recognize the questions asked in a random order. Try it at home!
Once we had the individual letters down pat, we cued the clip to @ 6:39 to just practice the whole alphabet in the military style. It’s repeated several times, increasing the tempo each time. Once students were adept at repeating the entire alphabet (which didn’t take long at all!) we listened to another catchy version. Click here to practice this one:
Bonjour! Students have played « Bonjour » BINGO to familiarize themselves with simple greetings and questions. Click on Bonjour BINGO-2b50epu and ask your child to practice saying them aloud and show their comprehension!

Hello students of French as a Second Language. I am learning to blog and would like to share current class information here with you so that you can access it from home and share my enthusiasm of the French language and culture.
Students have created their own class promises to make every effort to speak French as often as possible and learn to self-correct. They are encouraged to repeat after me in French to develop their knowledge of vocabulary, language structures and overall pronunciation and fluency.
