French 1: Wednesday April 17 2013 Lesson Plan

Les Devoirs: Write all vocab terms covered on pp. 234–237...
  • ...if the vocab words are pictured on pp. 234–235, write them three times and draw a picture to accompany the word!
  • ...write any non-pictured words and phrases four times.
[5 minutes] Pronunciation warm-up: Students practice new vocab 7.2 in pairs! 
  • CAH checks vocab homework during this time.
[30 minutes] Oral Vocabulary Practice
  • "Qu'est-ce que tu vas acheter pour ta mère/ton père/ton ami...?" (Students respond with an item from our vocab list.)
  • "Combien ça coûte?" (Students respond with their best guess on price, based on a rough conversion of $1.31 to €1.00.)
  • Then do p. 236 Exs. 22 and 24 together orally.
[45 minutes] New Grammar: The Past Tense/passé composé! p.238
  • Put chart on p. 238 on board.
  • Emphasize two parts: conjugate avoir, then add past participle ( in French is like -ed in English).
  • Emphasize pronunciation difference in first-person singluar between present and past.
  • Do Exs. 27, 28, 29, and, as time allows, 30 together in class.
Les Devoirs: Look at the verbs on p. 239, Ex. 31. For each verb, write two original sentences, one saying someone is doing the action (present tense), another saying that same person did the action yesterday (past tense). Use a different subject for each verb. Also include some phrase (direct object, prepositional phrase. In all, you will write nine pairs of sentences, eighteen sentences total.

For example, suppose you have the verb chanter. I want to see two sentences, present and past:
  1. Nous chantons l'hymne nationale au match de basketball.
  2. Nous avons chanté l'hymne nationale au match de basketball.
