Activity Overview


The many emotions that the characters on Storyboard That can display provide a fun way for students to practice the French subjunctive. In this activity, students will use character poses and expressions to create a storyboard that practices using the subjunctive. Students can use common subjective sentence starters, such as “je suis content que…” or “nous sommes tristes que…” in their storyboards. In order to ensure that the use of the subjunctive is evident with all pronoun forms, specify that students use only -ir, -re, and irregular verbs.
