Vocabulary Review in French C

French C Honors students reviewed vocabulary about travel with two games: “Sur la tête” and “Noodle”.  In the first game, students compete to circle a specific vocab word.  They have to keep their marker on their head before that word is called.

Noodle

A great game for the gym or a few minutes outside!  Each student is provided with a large flashcard picture of a vocabulary word.  They then form a circle, holding their cards in front of them so all can see.  One player is given a pool noodle and goes in the middle of the circle.  They call out one of the vocabulary words being held by the other students.  They then must count to 3…1 Mississippi…2… before trying to tap the student holding that particular card with their pool noodle (you have to make rules about how hard you can hit and where, of course).  Meanwhile, the student whose vocab word was just called cannot move their feet and must call out someone else’s vocab word before being hit with the pool noodle.  If they are successful, the student in the center has to change course and look for the person holding this new vocab word (and now this player must yell out yet another vocab word before begin hit by the noodle).  When hit by the noodle, you are “it”.  Students should exchange vocab words from time to time.
