Unit Plan

Use the Unit Plan above to work through the resources below.


As you go through the Google Slides, use this graphic organizer to have students fill in the masculine and feminine forms of the adjectives. Use this Quizlet to reinforce vocabulary.


Print out the Google Slides photos and hang them around the classroom. Then, give students post-its (5-10) and instruct them to look through the photos and write down adjectives that describe the people in the photos. Discuss when an adjective is masculine and feminine. Have students make adjectives agree with the person on their post-it. 


Using white boards, go through the PPT and have students hold up adjectives that describe the pictures as well as reflecting on translations of adjectives throughout. Focus on adjective agreement. Can also be used as a speaking activity (without whiteboards).


Simple exercises to practice with with adjectives.


Have students follow along by printing out this version of the PPT with blanks, filling in as you go over the PPT. Reinforce/ practice with Tex's French être website.


Using this Google Slides, introduce vocabulary about family members. Reinforce with this Quizlet.


First, discuss the difference between c'est and il est/ elle est with students. Then, give students a chance to practice with this worksheet. Finally, print out the manipulatives and place students in partners. Have partners cut and paste the manipulatives on a separate sheet of paper, deciding which adjectives go with il/elle est and which nouns go with c'est. Students should logically pair them together.


After introducing possession with "de" to students as well as contractions with "de", give students this worksheet to practice.


Using this graphic organizer, go through the Google Slides with students to introduce possessive adjectives and how to use them based on gender of words.


Have students complete this graphic organizer before starting their "Ma Famille" Project. Use this example project to inspire students! When students are viewing projects, have them complete a graphic organizer like this to ensure engagement. Hand out this We Video cheat sheet to help students navigate working this site.


Using this Google Slides (developed by Andrea Martin), review the uses of être and avoir, citing their differences and giving students the opportunity to practice with them. 


First, go over the Google Slides. Then, hand students this worksheet to work through and find the different forms of beau, nouveau, and vieux.


Use this questionnaire as an introductory activity and to introduce vocabulary that students will need to know for completing their graphic organizer. Print out the Au Pair descriptions and hang them around the classroom. Then, have students work in partners to complete this graphic organizer with the information from the advertisements around the room.
