Project – fairy tales
How did you pick this theme or topic?
I wanted them to know more about the vocabulary related to fairy tales so that they could understand Cendrillon more easily.
How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
How did students react?
They reacted well and had a lot to remember because they didn’t know any vocabulary.
Did they engage with each other and you?
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Sheets of paper
Please attach a copy.
Here is the plan I had with me
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Yes but maybe use it in a different way since this was designed for the project.
1. Fairy Tales
→ they have to guess from what fairy tale the sentences comes from
• La fillette a bu la potion et est devenu très petite.
• La jeune fille s’est piqué le doigt et s’est endormie pour toujours.
• La jeune fille est tombée amoureuse de la Bete et a brisé le sortilège.
→ they have to create 3 sentences thanks to the vocabulary sheet and make us guess from what fairy tale it comes from
2. Fables de la Fontaine
→ they have to read the fables aloud
→ they say what they understand
→ we see together the words they don’t understand
→ then we read the English version
→ we discuss the meaning
