Classroom Ideas

This could lead into a discussion about French games such as handball, boules and pétanque. Students could then talk about sports activities they like. They could also practise talking about sport activities in different ways (eg je joue, j’aime jouer, je vais jouer, j’ai joué au tennis. Examples could be written on the board and students could work in pairs, asking and answering the appropriate questions (eg Qu’est-ce tu fais comme sports? Qu’est-ce que tu aimes faire? Qu’est-ce que tu as fait samedi dernier?). Times of day (matin, après-midi) could be included. As homework, they could write a paragraph in each of these styles. Numbers up to 1000 could be revised
