Games are a great way to engage pupils so they are having fun whilst they are learning in a meaningful context. This book of photocopiable games is ideal for classes of different abilities as the games are colour coded for 3 different abilities: vert (lower ability group), jaune (middle ability group) and rouge (higher ability group). For each topic, the number of words to practice for the colour coded games will vary for each ability group. At the front of the book you will find a detailed vocabulary plan of which words each ability group has in each topic. This collection of lovely games for teaching French have been created for pupils aged 7 - 14 by a qualified and experienced Foreign Languages teacher. The differentiated photocopiable games that appear in the book include snakes and ladders, dominoes, board games, co-ordinates and 3 or 4 in a row. Each topic also has a set of picture and matching French word mini cards. There are so many different language games that can be played using mini cards, so at the back of the book there are photocopiable instructions that can be given to the pupils explaining 16 different games or activities. The instructions can either be given as an instructions page for the children to choose their own game, or you can choose the games the children will play and photocopy the instructions for these. For the games using the mini cards you can decide if you want the whole class to have all the cards, or if you continue to ask groups to focus on the words outlined in the detailed vocabulary plan for each group. You can also practice making French sentences or questions by embedding important language principles as the pupils play the games. At the back of the book you will find 5 pages of useful suggestions about the sentences or questions that can be made using the words pictured in the games. Games are ideal for repetition, reinforcement, encourage a positive approach to learning a foreign language and also encourage the development of good social and communication skills.
