French speaking activities for Christmas





Christmas is such a fun time to be a teacher, but it's also really stressful. Snow days, finals, schedule changes, and excited students make this month especially hard.

Quick and ready-to-use activities are a must, but you still want to keep teaching, so find some things that are engaging, interesting, and perfect for the season. Students love speaking activities, and I think they are a huge stress-reliever when things are super-busy.

Here are some of my favorite speaking activities for Christmas.

1. Speaking cards


Speaking cards are always a favorite in my class, and this set is really versatile! There are 64 cards in all with a mix of basic cards for beginners and more advanced cards for levels 2 and up. 15 cards are specific to Christmas and the rest are winter-themed.

2. J'ai... qui a ...?


This game is so great for listening comprehension, and it's a good tool for visual learners! Two vocabulary sheets are included : a sheet with French/English translations and a sheet with the images shown below.

Here's how the game works:

The object of the game is to go full circle with all of the cards. The player with "J'ai la première carte" starts and the game ends with "Qui a la première carte." Students listen for their word, and when they hear it, they'll say "J'ai + the image shown on their card" then ask "Qui a + the second image on their card?"

It includes 30 cards so it can be played in big classes. In classes with more than 30 students, simply pair up a few students, and in classes with less than 30 students, some students will have two cards.
