Is it…Guessing Game

This last summer I spent some time with my six year old cousin. He has some speech issues and sees a speech therapist weekly and is not, in general, a great talker…yet.  However he loves playing the Guess Who game.  Do you know this game?  You have cards with images on them that you slide …

Bingo with Classroom Objects

Who doesn’t love a good game of Bingo? I created an interactive slide deck for Bingo with the classroom objects. NB: In the textbook a bicycle and car are listed in the classroom objects section.  Who am I to judge?  There’s also an mp3 player and a CD player.  I just make fun of those.  …

Quickly Make a Quizlet Diagram

Work smarter not harder Quizlet has a feature that they call “diagram.”  It’s pretty darn cool.  You upload a photo and then place dots on it and student identify the dots.  The implications for language learners to practice identifying vocabulary are clear.  Here I am using it not so much as a “diagram,” but as …

Verb Battleship: Reflexive Verbs

I was looking for a fun activity with reflexive verbs this week and I settled on some verb battleship.  (Because who doesn’t love a great game of battleship!)  We didn’t even have enough time to play, but that’s ok, I’ll keep it on deck for when we do.  (On deck! Get it?! On the deck …

Yelp Template

Write a Review I made a French Yelp template for Google Slides for an assessment last week.  It has a place for students to write two reviews.  I wanted to design a prompt that would have students using the past tense and wouldn’t you know it-that’s what you do in a Yelp Review!  Quelle coïncidence!!  (Yelp.fr …

Open Mind Interactive Slides

I’ve been working on a presentation on reading strategies and updated my “Open Mind” Template for Google Slides.  An “Open Mind” activity is pretty simple.  Students insert words or images into the mind of a character or person they’ve been reading about.  (For example for Romeo Montague a student could put a heart and say …

Fake Facebook Interactive Slide

I’m working on a workshop on reading strategies and thought I’d share my “Facebook” Google Slides page.  It’s in French.  Since I’m not on Facebook, I did a web search for what the French terms were. It’s two “pages” and the yellow boxes were meant to be where the students fill in. How can you …

Collaborative Magnetic Poetry (French) – Interactive Slide

I made a collaborative slide activity for creating sentences.  Students drag the cards onto the slide to create different sentences.  It’s a round about way to talk about grammar.  Once the students get all done- the different colored cards can help facilitate a discussion about grammar.  What do you notice about all of the red …

Verb Battleship

I’ve played verb battleship for years and it was always a bit of a frustrating experience because it always took at least 20 minutes to set up the boards and explain how it worked.  I can’t even say why I kept doing it, except I guess I liked all the practice it gave using the négatif and I was …
