French 2: Friday February 1 2013 Lesson Plan

DUE: Morning/Evening Routine Skits!
  • In pairs, students compose skits about morning and evening routine.
  • One student prepares a description of a morning/before-school routine; other student acts it out.
  • Second student prepares a description of an after-school/evening routine, first student acts it out.
  • Each person's routine must include at least four activities and at least three reflexive verbs!
  • Students present without scripts or notes!
[5 minutes]: Listening Warm-up! 
  • CAH gives commands (see list below); students respond by acting out the command. 
  • Note that, since CAH is telling the whole class to do something, he uses the vous form of the commands!
[15 minutes] Students present morning/evening routine skits!
  • Each student duo presents at front of class.
  • CAH evaluates on pronunciation and understanding (i.e., does each action match what the speaker says).
[15 minutes] Announce/Explain/Practice Chapter 5 Oral Interview Quiz! Wednesday, February 13!

On Wednesday, February 13, I will ask you one of these two questions:
  • Qu'est-ce que tu as fait hier soir? OR
  • Qu'est-ce que tu as fait ce matin?
You will answer by stating three things that you did, using vocab from Chapter 5. I will then ask a follow-up question to your response. I may ask whether you did another activity; I may ask what you did before or after what you mentioned; I may ask pourquoi? about the activities you mentioned. You need to answer in a complete sentence, not just oui or non.

I will then give you four commands based on the verbs in Chapter 5. You will respond not by speaking but by acting out the action commanded. Possible commands:
  1. lève-toi
  2. réveille-toi
  3. couche-toi
  4. endors-toi
  5. brosse-toi les dents
  6. brosse-toi les cheveux
  7. peigne-toi
  8. coiffe-toi
  9. habille-toi
  10. déshabille-toi (remember, mime it, don't actually do it!)
  11. lave-toi les mains
  12. lave-toi la figure
  13. lave-toi les cheveux
  14. sèche-toi
  15. sèche-toi les mains
  16. sèche-toi les cheveux
  17. sèche-toi les yeux*
  18. maquille-toi avec le rouge à levres
  19. rase-toi
  20. dépêche-toi
*Think about what I'm asking here!

You then ask me two questions—not ça va or comment tu t'appelles or anything else to which you already know the answer, but preferably questions related to Chapter 5 vocabulary. I will respond en français; you will prove you understand my response (probably by translating my statement back into English).
  • Écoutez et répétez!
  • Practice in quartets: students order each other around, act out the specified action.
  • Do one round with all students in large group ordering each other around in sequence.
[15 minutes] Grammar Review: Past Tense! passé composé (pp. 58, 60)
  • Glance back at pp. 58 and 60 for basic formation of past tense.
  • Students translate the following sentences au tableau (one sentence per student; need not do all):
  1. I worked all morning.
  2. You worked all morning.
  3. She waited all afternoon.
  4. We waited the whole evening.
  5. You went to all the films.
  6. They entered all the rooms.
  7. All the monsters died.
  8. All the students arrived at 8 o'clock.
  9. I have stayed at all the hotels in Bismarck.
  10. You ate all the cake!
  11. Elise used all the soap.
  12. We lost all of our toothpaste.
  13. You took the bus.
  14. Jean and Claude did all their homework.
  15. Marie and Isadore knew all the answers.
  16. I climbed all the mountains.
  17. You went out to all the parties.
  18. All my brothers were born in winter.
  19. All my sisters were born in summer.
  20. They put all the towels in the bathroom.
  • Remember those verbs that take être in the past tense? Guess what: there are more!
[40 minutes] Reflexive verbs in passé composé (p. 174)
  • Reflexive verbs act like verbs of motion: they all take être in the past tense!
  • One big difference from verbs of motion: the past participle agrees with the subject/reflexive pronoun only if there is not some other direct object (like the teeth being brushed, hair being combed, hands being washed) after the verb.
  • Examples:
    1. Male speaking: Je me suis levé.
    2. Female speaking: Je me suis levée.
    3. Tu t'es rasé?
    4. Marion s'est lavée.
    5. Marion s'est lavé les mains. ("The hands" are a direct object; participle does not change to feminine to agree with subject Marion.)
    6. Nous nous sommes habillés.
    7. Mes filles, vous vous êtes habillées? (extra e and s: feminine plural!)
    8. Les garçons se sont couchés à 10 h.
    9. Les filles se sont brossé les dents. ("The teeth" are direct object, so participle does not agree with subject.)
  • Do p. 174, Ex. 27 together in class
Les Devoirs: Reflexive verb practice: Write out p. 175, exercises 28, 29, and 30.
