Old Town French

French classes in Old Town Alexandria for children

Below are games and activities children can do at home to review French vocabulary we learn in class. 


Print these cards up and cut them out on the line.  Your child can find the matching cards or the cards that go together.  

You may also play "Go fish".  In French, we say VAS PECHER.  One person asks "Est-ce que tu as....?" and if the other person has that specific card, s/he gives it to the other person.  If the person doesn't have that card, they say "Non, vas pĂȘcher" and s/he takes a card from the top of the pile. The object of the game is to collect pairs.  At the end of the game, the person with the most pairs wins.

 Winter words Match the word with the picture.

les couleurs Match the word with the picture.

 J'ai de petits yeux (body parts and what they do) Match the part of the body and what it does.  This game goes with the song "J'ai de jolis yeux".

Salutations (put the salutation with the animal that rhymes with the salutation)

Kitchen vocabulary Match the word with the picture.

Halloween matching game Match the word with the picture

QUI A? Who has?

One of my favorite games to play in a French immersion classroom because children have to really listen to each other read their cards.  This game is for children who can read in French. For emergent readers or children who can read(ages 5+).

How to play: Distribute all the cards.  The youngest(or oldest) person begins by reading their card and discarding it by placing it in the middle of the group. The person who has the answer to that card reads their card and discards the card.   The game continues until all the cards have been read and the last card is the question to the first card that was read at the beginning of the game.

Mon visage (my face)

Children can draw a face on this sheet and write the parts of the face next to eat.  Or, using play dough, children can make the different parts of the face and name the parts.  Blank face is on page 1 and names of the parts of the face are on page 2. 

Emotions Bingo

Cut out the bingo game cards and give one to each player.  Cut out the emotion with the word as calling cards(on page 1).   One player is the caller and calls out each emotion.  The players cover that emotion with a chip(a penny or over item). Whoever has 5 in a row wins.  


Capital letter (script) and picture.  Match the capital letter with the first letter of the picture.(from dessinemoiunehistoire.com)
