Alphabet – Jeux

Alphabet – games

1st game:

MATERIAL: big board (no need to be interactive), marker, erasor

KNOWLEDGE: the alphabet (lesson HERE)

DIFFERENCIATION: for lower ability pupils use easy words such as cognates (elephant, animal, chimpanzee, crocodile…), for higher ability pupils write a second word, more complicated with clues around the classroom for example or in their book.

The name of is game is Hangman, really easy and popular game in pupils’ language so why not playing it in TL! I will help reinforce their knowledge with the French alphabet. The teacher write the 1st letter and then lines instead of the other letters. And the students need to guess the words by giving (in the TL) letters to fill the gaps. But careful!! The have a limited number of choices. The teacher can choose to write down the letter already said or to make sure everyone is paying attention don’t write anything.

2nd game:

MATERIAL: none

KNOWLEDGE : the alphabet (lesson HERE)

DIFFERENTIATION: choice of word given

Make pupils spell words out loud. Go with every lesson, any topic, for example as a starter.

3rd game:

Salutations – Jeux

Greetings – games

1st game:

MATERIAL: no material required, need space (sport hall, assembly hall, drama class or push the tables at the back)

KNOWLEDGE: greetings (lesson HERE)

DIFFERENTIATION: have the key sentences written on the board for those who need it, pupils with more French can add another information about them if they want to.

The teacher ask the pupils to form a circle with the teahcer and then to sit down. The teacher starts saying « Bonjour, Je m’appelle Madame/Monsieur X » facing everyone, then the teacher turns to his left and look at the person and says « Et toi? ». The pupil will reply « Bonjour Madame/Monsieur X, je m’appelle Y ». After hearing the name the teacher will add « Enchanté(é) ». Then pupil Y will repeat the process with his left neighbour.

This is a nice way to learn the names from the class for a 1st day.

2nd game (variant):

KNOWLEDGE: greetings (lesson HERE), the alphabet (lesson HERE)

DIFFERENTIATION: have the key sentences written on the board for those who need it + alphabet worksheet with pronunciation, pupils with more French can add another information about them if they want to.

The teacher ask the pupils to form a circle with the teahcer and then to sit down. The teacher starts saying « Bonjour, Je m’appelle Madame/Monsieur X » facing everyone. The pupil on the left will ask « comment ça s’écrit? ». The teacher will then spell the word slowly in French. After spelling it, the teacher turns to his left and look at the person and says « Et toi? ». The pupil will reply « Bonjour Madame/Monsieur X, je m’appelle Y ».  The pupil on his left would then ask « comment ça s’écrit? » and the pupils would spell it in French… and so on.

This is a nice way to learn the names from the class for a 1st day, and to revise the French Alphabet too.

Some of the pupils will have accessories, other not. According to which accessories they have it will define their age: adult or child. Make sure everyone understands that: hat + hand bag + moustache = adult and ball + school bag = child. Those with nothing are also children. Pupils have to walk around until the teacher stop the music. When the music stop the pupils have to introduce themself to the closest person USING THE APPROPRIATE FORM (formal or informal).

– adult adult : formal- adult child : formal
– child child : informal

Example of speech (adult adult)

Bonjour Madame
– Comment allez-vous?
très bien merci, et vous?
– comme ci comme ça.
Comment vous appellez-vous?
– Je m’appelle Madame X, et vous?
