French 2: Wednesday April 4 Lesson Plan

Note: make-up times for Vocab Quiz 7.1 are Wednesday (today!) 14:15, 14:45, and 15:20! With the large number of people who missed Monday, we need to do these quizzes at set times to get as many people done at once as possible.

DUE: Vocab 7.2 Writing/Drawing Practice!

  1. Write all new vocab words in Exprimons-nous and D'autres mots utiles on p. 247 four times.
  2. Write all new vocab words in the pictures on pp. 246–247 three times and draw a picture representing each vocab word next to each vocab word.
{5 minutes} Student Vocab Practice! Students drill each other on vocab words while CAH takes homework scores

{5 minutes} Present remaining camping skits!

{10 minutes} More Vocab Drill!
CAH asks, "Qu'est-ce que tu as vu dans la forêt/au lac/à la rivière?" Students respond with "J'ai vu..." and terms from Vocab 7.2!

{10 minutes} Listening Practice: Students listen and respond to spider story (images on p. 248 Ex. 20).

{10 minutes} More vocab practice: Do p. 248 Ex. 21 together.

{20 minutes} Grammar Practice: more imperfect vs. past tense (l'imparfait vs. le passé composé!)
  • Students work in pairs
  • Students pick four verbs from this chapter (see p. 265 for both vocab lists).
  • One student writes four sentences using those verbs in the straight past tense.
  • The other student writes the same four sentences but puts the verb in the imperfect.
  • After all finish, each pair reads a pair of its sentences aloud.
Les Devoirs: L'histoire d'aventure!
  • Each student writes a short story about an adventure in nature.
  • Minimum ten sentences (and for Pierre's sake, don't write your story in English and then plunk it into Google Translate!)
  • Every sentence must use vocab from Chapter 7 (highlight those words!)
  • Story must be complete and ready to read aloud next class period!
