These video lesson plans concern directions and telling time.
Directions, Places and Time each takes 6 class periods (50 minute classes). Here's the basic formula:
Note: For any activity that you don't recognize, search for it on my YouTube channel.

The video links are samples of the activity and not actually the "directions/places/time" video. It's just for you to get an idea of the game.

  • Day 0: the flashcards should have been started after the students took the clothing quiz
  • Day 1:
    • correct 3 typos on flashcards and pages 92-93
        • "au but" change to "au bout" p. 92
        • "en haute" change to "en haut" p. 92
        • "premier" change to "première" p. 93
        • add "la rue" to page 93
    • finish flashcards

    • homework is directions Quizlet 1 Learn & Speller Online Proof
  • Day 2:
    • Check homework
    • do "Double Baby Bingo" (two 3X3 set up= 18 cards w/ 2 left over)
    • "Toutes Blanches"
    • "Avalanche"
    • Time left over? Do "Fake Whiteboard" - All start w/ perfect score of 10 pts, pull up Quizlet 1, shuffle, show English, they write French, turn English card to show answer take off points for vocab (-1) & spelling (-.25), show "fake score" at end

  • Day 3:
    • Check homework
    • Real Whiteboard w/ Quizlet 1 (10 points in grade book)
    • "Autour de moi"
      • Groupes bleu & blanc form circle around teacher
      • teacher faces groupe rouge (who is sitting & watching)
      • Teacher has color flashcards in hand and asks person straight ahead in circle what the answer is & says "Bougez" for the next person to be asked.
      • Once all in the circle have been asked, groupe bleu people sit, groupe rouge people stand and teacher faces group bleu people who are sitting down (it's so teacher can keep an eye on everyone...)
      • Once the circle is done, "blanc" sits and "bleu" comes back in-that way all students answer 2 cards
    • "Hot seat" (6 point oral grade)
      • For "hot seat" the class has a task (homework??) while one person at a time is in the hot seat and recognizes 3 random cards from Quizlet 1
        • This is worth 6 points for an oral grade
        • Teacher uses Quizlet 1, hits shuffle and hits "play"
          • Student must id 10 cards (5 seconds before Quizlet turns card over
          • If student gets all 10 right w/in the automatic 5 seconds, student exempts the oral quiz and makes a perfect score on it
    • Day 4: Computer Fun day
    • Day 5:
    • Day 6:
    • Written and oral quizzes on "Directions"
    • Start making "Places" flashcards (use Quizlet sets 3,4,5)
    • Continue this 5-day formula for "Places" and "Time" (12 days)
