These vocabulary lists can help students answer comprehension questions, write essays, and complete projects about the books and movies. There are separate lists if you only want to show one film. There are also lists with clip art images to help your visual learners. This product has "Wordle" word clouds for the synopsis of each film as pre-reading/pre-viewing activities, and links to the YouYube movie trailers. There is also a word search for each movie to practice vocabulary. This vocabulary can be used at any level. I used this product with my French I class. Both films are rated PG.

These activities are designed for an intermediate French class, and the 1998 version of the film. However, the questions and vocabulary could work with other versions as well. It is rated PG-13. I used these activities in my French II classes.

It also has 25 movie questions (English version and French version), around 60 vocabulary words with clip art, a word search, a double puzzle, and 9 essay topics (English version and French version), and answer keys. This product can be used in your beginner classes (English version), or in your intermediate classes (French version). This film is rated PG.

Perplexing Pronouns!-Les Pronoms Sujets vs. Les Pronoms Disjoints


My middle school French beginner students used to struggle with the difference between subject pronouns (je/tu/il/elle/on/nous/vous/ils/elles) and stress pronouns (moi/toi/lui/elle/nous/vous/eux/elles), and I found there were not very many resources out there to help students practice and master this aspect of French grammar. So I created these activities to help my students!

This product contains fun notes and activities to teach your beginner French students about the difference between subject pronouns and stress pronouns (les pronoms disjoints)! These activities were designed for middle school, or high school French I students, but they could be used at other levels to review. This product has instructions for teachers to lead a visual and oral pronoun lesson, writing activities to help students learn the difference of stress pronouns versus subject pronouns, a group writing activity/game, and a speaking activity where students throw a ball around the room.
