Nous sommes 2 Unit 1

The Nous sommes Curriculum for Intermediate learners

Intermediate (Levels 2-4), Advanced (Levels 4-AP)
8 Pages
4+ days

This unit is about laying a solid foundation in the past tenses for a year of rich, student-centered, comprehension-based instruction. While originally designed to start the year in a Level 2 French course, the four lessons included in this unit can be scattered throughout a Level 1 or 2 course in order to expose students to contextualized input in the past tense.

The four lessons included each span several days:

  1. WENT card talk
  2. The Lion and the Zebra fable
  3. Rumor Has It discussion activity
  4. Caesar Sentences Card Talk

This is Unit 1 of the Nous sommes curriculum for French 2. More units will be posted as they are adapted from the Spanish sister curriculum, SOMOS.

  • This is a neat way to introduce the passé composé or use it to review. Could also be a great sub activity for my upper levels. Merci!

  • My students really enjoyed all the creative lessons in this resource, and I love that the story comes from Francophone Africa. I just wish that there were more French 2 units from Martina Bex and her crew.
