The pdf files below are based on the 'Quatre petits amis' story, which is one of the 20 French stories available with a trial log-in on the Grow Story Grow website - http://www.growstorygrow.com
Grow Story Grow is an online language-learning library. There are over a 100 French animated stories in total (with animation and audio), each with interactive games, worksheets etc. The site also has stories in German, Spanish, English, Italian, Polish and Mandarin.
This particular story teaches / practises the following:
- animal names
- colours & adjectives
- order and agreement of adjectives
- ma tête, mon nez, mon dos
- possessive adjectives
- j'ai faim
- lots of high frequency verbs and expressions
The basic structures are repeated several times (once with each of 4 animals).
The pdfs I've included here are in 2 groups.
First, matching pictures from the story to key phrases...
NB. The site is called GrowStoryGrow because most stories have multiple levels of difficulty, each level building on and adding to the previous level. (UK teachers: we're NOT talking NC levels here - rather different levels of the same story.)
