French Months of the Year and Saying what the Date is Today
Introduce your pupils to the months of the year and how to say the date in French with this interactive resource, which includes two presentations, a fun activity sheet, two speaking and listening pair work activity sheets and a set of classroom display cards for saying the date.
The first presentation provides the vocabulary for the months of the year, with a summary slide at the end, and the second presentation demonstrates how to ask what the date is and provides an answer for each month of the year. Both presentations include sound files.
A fun, puzzle style, activity sheet is provided to help pupils embed their learning of the months of the year. Answers are included.
The speaking and listening activity sheets allow the pupils to work in pairs, practising the sentence construction for saying the date in French and enabling pupils to increase their listening skills for numbers and dates. If pupils are not sure of their numbers to 31, you can also find number presentations and audio vocabulary sheets in my shop.
A colourful set of classroom display cards are included in this resource that match the presentation. The month calendars are coloured to represent the seasons and can be laminated to use for whole class games or displayed each month to assist pupils with saying the date throughout the year.
Note that the first day of the month uses the ordinal number in French, which is “le premier” whilst the rest of the dates use the cardinal numbers “deux”, “trois” etc.
This resource is ideal for beginner French in KS2 and KS3, and is designed for the non-specialist, as well as the specialist, to deliver a fun, engaging and high quality lesson. This resource is suitable for all learners, including SEN and EAL pupils.
