French 1: Wednesday May 1 2013 Lesson Plan

DUE: Les Devoirs: Pratiquez les verbes! For each of the 13 verbs in the below list...
  1. write the definition;
  2. write the full six-part present-tense conjugation;
  3. write the full six-part past-tense conjugation. 

[10 minutes] Conversation Practice! 
  • Students go around room, ask each other "Qu'est-ce que tu as fait hier soir?" and "Qu'est-ce que tu va faire ce soir?" 
  • Students respond to these questions (use past tense on first response, then future with aller + infinitive on the second). 
  • Students should respond to at least one of the questions with one of the 13 verbs from the above list!
  • CAH checks homework during this time. 
[15 minutes] Verb Review: Mettez les conjugaisons des verbes au tableau!
  • Note the verbs that take être as past helping verb.
[15 minutes] More Conversation Practice! CAH asks students questions in past and present tense using the 13 verbs on this week's list.

[30 minutes] Past Tense with être! page R27!
  • First, review conjugation of être. (How do you say "I am at school? Are you at school?...")
  • Then look at list of verbs on R27 that take être instead of avoir as past helping verb. 
  • Add passer to this list!
  • Talk various mnemonics: DR. AND MRS. VANDERTRAMP, the House of être (ooo, flashcards!), The Alamo of être....
  • être makes participles act like adjectives! You have to add an -e if a lady or other feminine noun "went" and -s if more than one person or object "went."
  • Practice: CAH asks "Où es-tu allé hier? Où est-elle allée hier? Où êtes-vous allés hier?" Students respond in past tense.
