French Calendar Freebie: Learn to speak and write about the calendar in French

 Free French Calendar Set

Use this fun, interactive calendar set to help teach your learners all about the date, months of the year, days of the week, and more!

One French learning activity my kids always LOVE to do is fixing up our French wall calendar every day. They each grab a piece to put up and we talk about what it says.

"Aujourd'hui c'est..."

"Demain ce sera..."

Hier c'etait..."

That is why I decided to make and share this fun set with you! It contains calendar cards you can use at home or in the classroom. They work great in a pocket chart or on the wall. I laminate mine and put velcro dots on the back of them so we can change them every day.

But this set includes more than just a calendar!

It also includes posters and writing worksheets too! 

These writing sheets give kids plenty of practice writing about the date, the month, the weather, and more! I have even included years up to 2033 :)

Freebie French Speaking and Writing Unit

 Free French Speaking and Writing Unit
For beginner language learners

One of the best ways I have gotten my own kids to practice writing in French is by asking and answering the questions out loud before they write. Last year in our homeschool this was a HUGE success!

That is why I created this unit (and more to come!) based off of what we have been doing in our own home learning. I can vouch for the fact that it works and it can even be a lot of fun! Plus it will make a GREAT addition to your kids portfolios...

In this unit, there are 20 very basic questions ranging from "how are you doing? " or Where do you live?" to asking learners about their favourite things. Each card is meant to be printed out and folded in half, with the question on one side and the answer stem on the other.

After the cards, you'll notice there are some writing pages with many of the same questions (except very simple ones, of course, like "Comment t'appelles-tu?"). These sheets also have beginning answer stems for learners to trace on them, and  place for them to draw a picture or fill in the drawing prompt.
It's a fun addition to any French unit, a morning basket, or even a small classroom group. The best part? It's available for FREE!  Last year I used this alongside some sight words we learned to make sentences with (I'll release those soon too!) and I saw my kids' French writing soar.

Download this unit for free below using the google drive link. All I ask is that when sharing this resource, you share the link to THIS blog post, NOT the google link. Thank you and enjoy learning French with your littles!
