A Halloween mini-unit for Novice High French students

Wow, I can’t believe it’s October already!  I have spent the first several weeks of my school year implementing the lessons I created over the summer (many of which I have shared in earlier posts) and in general I have been pleased with how these lessons have gone.  I am really enjoying my second year at my current school–my relationships with my returning students have grown closer and I’m so proud of their progress toward proficiency. In addition, my new French 2 students (I don’t teach level 1) are fabulous. Their enthusiasm for French class makes teaching them so much fun!

Because of their dedication to French, I’m especially excited about our upcoming mini-unit on Halloween.  Following the lead of a fellow French teacher blogger in this post, I will repeat many activities that I’ve used in previous years.  However, as this agenda (updated 6/29/18) shows, I have also added a few new resources.  Perhaps most importantly, I’ve created several Edpuzzles for my favorite Halloween videos and an IPA.  I think most of these activities will be self-explanatory, but if you have any questions, please let me know!

      Are you able to click on the hyperlink on the word agenda? All materials are linked to that presentation.

      Hi, Janet. I have descriptions of the activities in a previous post (which is linked to this one.) The descriptions are given in the French 1 section. Let me know if you have trouble finding them or have questions. Lisa

    As always, merci beaucoup! I love “borrowing” from your resources.
    In the agenda above, you have links for L’Orteil Poilu, but there are only 7 pages and the story doesn’t seem to have a proper ending. Is it possible there are a few more pages? Am I just not seeing them? Thanks for any help you can give!

    Hi, In the first matching activity (French 2 Speaking Station–Activity #1), Partner A has two pictures that are the same (numbers 13 and 18). Eventually I ‘ll figure out which one is missing…..and I can do a manual cut-&-paste……
    Where do you find the cute pictures?
    Thank you, as always!
