French: Reflexive Verbs by A. Bree Stillings

Step 1Class discussion with students

Getting Started

Reflexive Verbs require a bit of practice for students to understand how the extra pronoun represents the same person as the subject. Prior to practicing with the comics, students will need to understand the pronouns for each subject and the placement of the pronouns. To continue with the lesson, students will also transform the same verbs in the near future tense, the imperative tense, and in passé composé.

Opening Discussion

Introduce common reflexive verbs for getting ready in the morning. Play "Jacques à Dit" (Simon Says) with the verbs encouraging students to act out the verbs.

Step 2Pixton comic-making activities
Step 3Concluding discussion with students

Reflexive verbs allow students to share with other learners their personal routines. Finish with a written or multi-media presentation of a typical routine that can be shared with other learners of the same language.
