Embedding the language Using sil vous plaît, merci, oui and non as part of everyday classroom language. You could do the register with oui and non on some days. The language for the teacher e.g. line up, listen and look are designed to be embedded in everyday classroom practice. For this topic, this would be the focus as opposed to the language being taught as such. There are example activities however to help teachers reinforce the language being used.
Mot de la semaine Mot du mois 1.Mot de la semaine means word of the week. Mot du mois means word of the month. 2.As a way of building up classroom vocabulary gently, you could have a word of the week/month which everyone will use in class (or out of class too if they like!) 3.Once you move onto your next word, keep the previous words going! This way the pupils will build up their language gradually!
Sample activities You will find a bank of sample activities which you can use to practise the vocabulary in the classroom. This is not a prescriptive list of activities and you can use or adapt them to suit the needs of your class. You will find a set of more challenging activities in Level 1 Classroom Talk.
Sil vous plaît ou non merci? Pupils look at the following slides and decide if they would like it or not by saying either Sil vous plaît or non merci! You could make this more active by having 2 sides of the room with each designated as the Sil vous plaît side and the other as the Non merci! side. Ask pupils to then choose a side which matches their opinion and say their opinion (Sil vous plaît or non merci) as a group. You could follow this up with asking them to choose pictures from cut outs or create their own drawings under the headings Sil vous plaît and non merci!
Sil vous plaît ou non merci? Regardez les photos et décidez si Sil vous plaît! ou Non merci!
Sil vous plaît ou non merci?
Version professeurs de français!
Sil vous plaît ou non merci?
Une couleur sil vous plaît! 1.Have a group of different coloured objects in the centre of a circle. 2.Pupils ask for a colour by saying, le bleu sil vous plaît the teacher then passes them the object and they say merci back. 3.Once all of the objects have gone, pupils then continue with one choosing a colour and saying (for example) le rose sil vous plaît at which point whoever has the pink object would put it back in the centre. The pupil who asked for it then says merci. 4.This continues until all the objects are back. 5.You can extend this by asking those who have the objects to hide them and when they are asked for it back, the others have to guess who has it (Cest qui? Cest Aaron etc.)
Jacques a dit Jacques a dit is French for Simon says. It works exactly the same way whereby if you say Jacques a dit (Jack said) at the start of a command then everyone has to do it. If you just say the command then pupils should stand still. If they do the action, they then sit down. Sample commands are below: Jacques a dit écoutez! (pupils can cup hand to ear) Jacques a dit regardez! (mime searching) Jacques a dit mettez-vous en ligne! (pupils get into a line) Ecoutez! Regardez! Mettez-vous en ligne!
Songs and videos! You will find a bank of sample songs and videos which you can use to practise the vocabulary in the classroom. This is not a prescriptive list of songs and you can use or adapt them to suit the needs of your class.
Mettez-vous en ligne (to the tune of farmers in his den) Mettez-vous en ligne! Tous les enfants de la classe, Mettez-vous en ligne!

Choose a starting point which suits you and your class Dont worry about repetition of language – repetition is everything in language learning, they cant hear it enough. Little and often – drip, drip effect. For Early – P2 start with Early Level P3 – perhaps Early too Everyone else – First for vocabulary. You can apply the approaches of 2 nd to the amount of vocab at 1st Level. P6/7 working up to 2 nd Approaches are more linked to Levels rather than the vocabulary – there is usually just more of it the higher you go. Dont be afraid to get it wrong! Its a positive thing for the pupils to see you learning with them. Go at a pace which you are comfortable with. Embedded language

When the music stops they must sit down in a seat which is free. 2.The person who is left is the out but they can still sing along and you can ask them to ask everyone to stand up and then choose a seat to remove next. 3.To add some extra French you can stick and question or a French challenge to each seat e.g. count to five, say your name, say what the weather is like today etc. and get them to say it to their neighbour. 4.You could also link this to whatever topic you have been doing e.g. pictures of animals if youve been looking at pets and they would have to say what it is.

One child is lépervier (the sparrowhawk) and stands in the middle of the playground. The other children stand at one end. When the sparrowhawk calls out jarrive, the other children have to run across the playground without being caught. If the sparrowhawk catches them, he calls out attrapé and they become sparrowhawks too.
Children sit in a circle. One child pretends to be a cat and goes to another child, who has to say Pauvre petit chat malade without laughing. If he laughs, he becomes the cat. If not, the cat goes to another child.
One child hides their eyes and counts to whatever number is appropriate to the size and amount of children playing. This could be done in French if possible. When the child has finished counting he/she shouts jarrive and looks for the others who have hidden. If the child finds one of them he/she shouts trouvé and that child helps them find the others.
