French 1: Tuesday April 23 2013 Lesson Plan

DUE: Les Devoirs! Practice Passé Composé!
  • Write ten sentences, two for each of the following verbs, in the past tense: choisir, finir, perdre, vendre, attendre.
  • Write five sentences, one with each of the following verbs, in the past tense: aider, acheter, essayer, porter, trouver.
  • Use 7.2 Vocab words in at least ten of your sentences and highlight those vocab words!
[20 minutes] Vocab Listening/Speaking Practice!
  • CAH assigns students to three or four groups (no fewer than four students per group).
  • Students play memory game: first says, "À la grande surface, j'ai acheté..." plus one of our vocab words. Student should say the vocab word loudly and clearly and make some physical gesture indicating what the item is. 
  • Next student says, "À la grande surface, j'ai acheté..." plus the item the first student says, plus a new item, and so on. See how far each group can go by memory!
  • CAH checks homework during this time.
  • Each group recognizes the person who can recall the longest list of items; CAH stages a champions round among those top memorizers in front of class.
[20 minutes] Grammar Review! Passé Composé with -ir/-re/-er verbs
  • Three rounds of sentences au tableau: first -er verbs, then ir- verbs, then -re verbs.
[35 minutes] New Grammar: Irregular Passé Composé Verbs! pp. 240 and R27
  • Just as happens in English, some French verbs form irregular past participles.
  • Memorize the 16 irregular past participles on R27. All are fair game on quizzes.
