French Matching Card Game - Les contraires #aimlang

As the end of the school year approaches, I am trying to find ways to challenge my grade 1 and 2 students to demonstrate their learning with fun activities. Just last week, I updated my Dimoitou chez nous take-home kits for my three grade 1 classes. They seem to love it so far and are so eager to have their turn to take home a kit. In each kit, there is an early reader and a workbook where they each take a page to write and illustrate a silly sentence in French. I pasted a listed of vocabulary words they can use, along with a message with other activities they can try with the Dimoitou puppet I made several years ago. I also included a set of 24 word cards which contain 12 pairs of opposites. They can play a variation of Go Fish or Memory, should they choose.

I'm in the process of making a couple of kits for my grade 2 classes but in the meantime I thought I would make some class sets that students can play with during Partner/Group Work since I have a few students who have worked their way through all of the activity sheets. I am also looking at adding to the list of opposites and printing out a larger set for my older students. If you would like to download a copy of the PDF version, click here. I'd recommend using different coloured card stock for each set.

    1. Plus, it gives them a fun opportunity to practice their oral French, too!

  2. I am going to steal this idea from you! My little guy, who is on the Spectrum, does not enjoy the process of learning French. But he loves games, so this may be a good way to spark his interest.
