Table Des Matières Sample Activity

The VERBE DU JOUR package that you have purchased is intended to be a user-friendly package. There are 15 various verb activities that may be used with Grades 6-9 at almost any time during the school year to help improve your students' usage of common ER verbs. There are 2 full pages of activities per verb that are intended to be photocopied double sided in order to simulate a small pamphlet. Each verb pamphlet should require a minimum of 1 French period 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 verb sheets for your class. Remember to photocopy the 2 sheets double sided in order to simulate a pamphlet.
  2. Explain your expectations of this exercise to your students. i.e. - Students must read through the activities completely, conjugate/translate each sentence, memorize the verb, etc...
  3. Read through the exercises 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. Explain your evaluation methods to your students. Each teacher is encouraged to create a rubric for different grade levels and/or targeting specific aspects of the activity.
  5. Once your students have completed their verb pamphlet, you may want them to review/correct their activities with a partner.
  6. Take up the answers with the class or have your students hand in their pamphlets for evaluation.
And finally...

Have fun while having your students create their own word finds en français!
