3 new ideas

1) J’ai…. Qui a… ? (I have… Who has… ?)
I came across this resource on the Internet whilst looking for (yet) other, new ideas for teaching and practicing numbers to 20 in French.  It’s from a French Canadian blog : les créations de Stéphanie.

Each child has a card – for example ‘J’ai 12 qui a 21?’ They have to listen to one another and continue the chain. A little bit like ‘follow me’ cards. It would work with any topic but I think it lends itself really well to practice numbers ( from looking at the digit to saying the word)
Depending on the ability of the class you could have 1 card between 2 or 2 cards per person.

Here is the link to the PDF.

2) 'Anticoloriage' ( coloriage = colouring )
This is from French blog ('bout de gomme') to get children to be more creative when colouring a picture or making a poster. Instead, you have to imagine, draw and describe your picture.

Again, you could adapt this for a wide range of topics.

3) Displays and word mats
As a ‘visiting’ teacher I haven’t got a classroom and I often wish there would be a display with numbers and colours in every classroom that I teach…

So I searched the Internet for some word mats and I found some really nice ones on the 'twinkl' website which I’m going to laminate.
Anyway, I’ve put them in a handy file, which you’re more than welcome to download here.

I’ve also put in there some posters (numbers, colours and months for birthday) that you could use for display.
