Intermediate French students can practice le passé composé & avoir with these 10 tic-tac-toe games. This is geared to second year French students or as a great review for advanced students.
With a partner, students rewrite a sentence with le passé composé (avoir ONLY / regular & irregular verbs). Students begin with the game that best meets their level and needs (beginner to challenging). The ten games increase in difficulty and differentiation (regular verbs, irregular verbs, write an answer to question, speaking-only games).
Students take turns writing the sentence in PC (Games 1-7) or writing an answer to a question in PC (Game 8). If they write a correct answer in the PC, they make an X or O on the game board.
Games 9-10 are for the advanced students; these games are purely answering the partner’s question in the PC before earning an X or O. Play continues until the game is complete; then, students move to the next game.
Typically, we like students to play at least four games with their partner. Group of three? Two students play and the third holds the answer key. They switch after each game.
