La Saint Valentin Board Game – Jeux: French Valentine’s Day Vocabulary Board Game – Jeux (25 Saint Valentin Vocabulary to practice) All Ready to print – No prep! (Available both in Color and B&W)

A Vocabulary Word Mat, answers sheet & foldable heart dices are included!

Looking for a fun activity for La Saint Valentin? This is a great way for students to learn/review the French Valentine vocabulary. 
Game set-up: 
You will need game pieces (I use pencil-top erasers or different colored paper clips) and a die. Dice are included as template where you can print and make your own dice. 

Students can play as group of 2 up to 4 as a regular board game. Student can determine who start first by rolling the highest number. 

Game rule:
Students roll the dice and in order to advance on the board, they will need to provide the vocabulary/answer the question either verbally or in writing. They can use the answer sheet to write down their answers (practice writing). If the student does not know the answer, he/she will remain on the same spot. Students can only advance to the number rolled if they can give the answer correctly. The first student who lands on the finish box, wins the game.
Extension of the game:
After few rounds of the board game, I usually do the following extensions. 

a) Speaking Practice with face partner or shoulder partner – students will go over all the 25 questions one by one. Student A questions student B and they take turn. 

b) Writing Practice as independent practice – students will answer all the questions on the answer sheet (I use the options of the printer or copier to have 2 answer sheets per page)or you can ask students to write down the answers on their notebook or use a blank paper. 

c) Exit Ticket – I usually pick 5-8 questions/pictures from the board and have students answer.
