French Verb Race Games

French Verb Race Games For French teachers and groups of friends who practice French together. VERB RACE – TEACHER LED Divide the class into three teams so that each student gets to go up to the board several times.  Have teams 1, 2 and 3 sit in groups so that each student clearly knows who plays before and after him. You may wish to allow them to change spots from time to time so that they’re not consistently playing against the same person who may or may not be a “better” player. Object of the game:  One student from each group goes up to the board with a dry erase marker or chalk in hand. As soon as all 3 students are lined up at the board, the teacher calls out a subject pronoun and the infinitive form of the verb to be conjugated in the appropriate tense. Everyone can keep trying to write the correct answer until someone gets it right or one minute has passed. Would you like to take a test to know what your current level is in French? Answers are written on each card to help you, the teacher, keep track of what is going on since this game moves fast. Once you have called out the subject pronoun and infinitive to be conjugated students can start writing. The first student who correctly writes the conjugated verb on the board earns a point for his team. Students keep track of their team’s points directly on the board where everyone can see them.  Important:  The spelling of the verb must be perfect and that includes...
