- Six sentences should use a form of avoir for the verb ("I have...," "She has...").
- Six sentences should use a form of être for the verb ("You are...?" "He is...").
- Each sentence should include a noun from Vocab List 1B (the one we just quizzed on, pp. 16-17).
- Students trio up, read their homework sentences to each other in round (Student A reads her Sentence #1 in French to Student B; Student B translates that sentence out loud; then B reads his Sentence #1 to C, C translates; then C reads her #1 to A, A translates; and so on...!
- Teacher checks homework for completion (12 sentences on paper) during this time.
avoir = « to have »
être = « to be »
- Students: if you haven't written these conjugations down yet, you should!
- Note difference between elles ont /z/ and elles sont /s/
- Similar to start, but now teacher picks student from one side of room to read sentence aloud from homework in French, then picks student from other side of room to translate into English. Listen for verbs: get them right!
- Read and repeat personality and nationality adjectives.
- Say each adjective twice, once masculine while pointing at guy, once feminine while pointing at gal (don't sweat explaining in English; keep it in French, simple and physical!)
- Teacher demos: "Je suis... [adjective]." Then teacher asks student, "Tu es...?" Get students to respond in kind with "Je suis... [adjective]."
