Top 2 Hacks for back to school set-up in French class

Teaching a language can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to setting up the French classroom for success. Read on for my top 2 back to school hacks for setting up French classrooms for success. You want to create an environment that is conducive to learning and encourages students to take ownership of their language journey. To achieve this goal, there are a few basic things you can do to make sure your French class is set up for success.

Hack #1: Word Walls & Labels

Word walls are an excellent way to help students become more familiar with French vocabulary. You can create a word wall in the classroom by printing out words related to the topic you’re teaching and displaying them around the room. This will help students become more comfortable with seeing the words they are learning written down. Additionally, you can add labels with French words on them around the room or on supplies such as scissors, glue sticks, etc. This will help reinforce the words they are learning while making it easier for them to find what they need when working in groups or independently.

Hack #2: Alphabets & Posters

Having an alphabet poster in your French classroom is important for two reasons – it helps students learn how to spell new words and reinforces pronunciation skills. Additionally, having posters in your classroom featuring phrases or quotes from famous French people or movies can also be beneficial. These types of posters will give students a better understanding of the culture behind the language they’re learning.
