French Adverb Lesson Plans

Proper use of adverbs will greatly enrich your students’ French. Not only are adverbs essential for expressing negative ideas, but they also add detail and precision to sentences. As students learn to make adverbs a regular part of their writing and speaking, consider using storyboards to supplement their practice. Storyboard projects encourage personal engagement with the content and provide opportunities for the collaborative group work some students may need to master difficult concepts. As students see the way adverbs enrich an illustrated scene, they will better understand the way they enrich conversation and writing.

Each sample storyboard lesson below addresses a different set of essential adverb rules. Naturally, each lesson also assumes certain knowledge of grammar and vocabulary. Adapt each assignment in complexity as you see fit based on the level and needs of your particular students.

As with all language assignments, oral practice is essential. Make use of each storyboard’s slideshow feature to allow students to present their projects to the class, reinforcing their oral language skills.
