French 2: Wednesday January 2 2012 Lesson Plan

CAH en France! Donnez l'amour au substitut!

DUE: rien!

[20 minutes] Oral Exam Practice!
  • Play the French 2 Semester Oral Exam video; pause to allow student responses.
  • Make sure every student has signed up for a time on the Semester Oral Exam Sign-up Sheet (southeast wall).
Les Devoirs: Verb conjugation! Practice the present and past tense conjugations of each of the following verbs by writing six complete sentences for each verb, three in the present, three in the past!
For example: if I give you the verb répondre, don't just write Je réponds, j'ai répondu, nous répondons, nous avons répondu, elles répondent, elles ont répondu. Write three full present-tense sentences, each with a different prepositional phrase or direct object or some such complement following the verb; then reword each sentence in the past tense. Next to each sentence, write what you mean in English!

1. Je réponds à maman. I respond to Mom.
2. J'ai répondu à maman. I responded to Mom.
3. Nous répondons aux questions. We are responding to the questions.
4. Nous avons répondu aux questions. We answered the questions.
5. Michel et Murièle ne répondent pas aux enfants. Michel and Murièle don't answer the children.
6. Michel et Murièle ne répondent pas aux enfants. Michel and Murièle didn't answer the children
  • Pay attention to pp. 58 and 60! Those pages tell you which verbs take avoir and être to form the past tense; 58 also lists irregular past participles.
  • Do not use Google Translate. Make all sentences from vocab available in our textbook.
  • You may use to check verb conjugations. For example, you can enter the verb aller into the WR verb conjugator and see all six present forms of the verb. 
  • Do not copy anyone else's sentences. You may ask other students questions, but working together does not mean one student comes up with original sentences and the other copies them down. 
Got it? Good! Start writing—six sentences for each of the following verbs, each one translated into English:
  1. manger
  2. finir
  3. arriver
  4. faire
  5. être
  6. dormir
  7. attendre (remember: you don't need a preposition for "for" after this verb!)
  8. aller
  9. sortir
  10. vouloir
  11. savoir
  12. rester
