I am currently preparing for a lesson observation next week where I am teaching a class of KS3 children the body parts in French. I teach at a school for children with SLD.
I was hoping to be able to show a video / audio clip of Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes in French on the interactive whiteboard, but am having big problems finding it anywhere. The only ones I have found are on You Tube and not really suitable as you can't tell what is being said!
I was wondering if anyone else had come across something that could be appropriate, or if not, if any one knows of any alternatives that teach some of the body parts?
There's a list of songs, lyrics and ideas here although not the audio unfortunately.
I just do it myself and get the kids to copy me, then play Jacques a dit with by making them touch the correct body part. Saves making a powerpoint, and means they get to stand up and wave their arms about a bit!
I also use the Alien language website (I can't remember the exact web address but you should be able to google it) The kids love it 'cos it's a bit gorey.
Hi, I was just searching for the same thing and found a piano clip with the words printed on screen. http://www.songsforteaching.com/french/teteepaulesgenouxetpieds.php
Hope this helps:)
`Take 10 en francais' would be great for your needs- there are video clips too!
