Table Des Matières Sample Activity

The MON DICTIONNAIRE VISUEL package that you have purchased is intended to be a user-friendly package. There are 15 thematic sheets that may be used with Grades 4-8 at almost any time during the school year to help improve and expand your students' vocabulary. Each page should require a minimum of 2 French periods to complete. Each teacher should assign specific time frames for completion of the activities.

Here are some helpful instructions that will ensure success in your classrooms:
  1. Photocopy the appropriate sheet(s) for your class.
  2. Explain your expectations of this exercise to your students. i.e. - Students must draw and colour each vocabulary item, cut and paste pictures, use computer graphics, etc...
  3. Read through the exercise with your students. You may have them translate challenging words. You may decide for yourself whether or not you would like your students to complete the exercise independently, in a group or as a class.
  4. If desired, create a rubric for different grade levels and/or targeting specific aspects of the activity. Explain your evaluation methods to your students.
  5. Once your students have completed their pages, you may want them to glue them into their student notebooks or onto manilla file folders (accordeon-style) which can be laminated.
  6. Assemble your students in partners or in groups to showcase their work and read their words/expressions for pronunciation practice.
  7. Collect and store each student's "MON DICTIONNAIRE VISUEL" or have them keep them in their desks.
  8. Collect each student's "MON DICTIONNAIRE VISUEL" at the end of June so that they can start off the following school year with this valuable resource. The "MON DICTIONNAIRE VISUEL" can then be expanded upon using new activity pages from year to year!
And finally...

Have fun while having your students create their own personal reference dictionaries!
