Grammar worksheets on frenchteacher

This is one of those occasional posts I write to promote my frenchteacher website.

Some of the most used resources on frenchteacher.net are the grammar worksheets written for all levels. I used them a lot myself when I was still teaching. I would like to stress that the worksheets were not designed to just be handed out "cold", but are best used in class for oral exploitation to begin with. This has the benefit of generating lots of listening and reading input, albeit of not the most compelling type, along with helping pupils develop their grammatical understanding and accuracy.

The sheets are often a starting point for more creative drill work.

For more information on ways to exploit grammatical worksheets see this blog.

Note that the site also has notes on grammar to hand out. These may fit neatly with the worksheets below.

Below are the grammar areas covered by year group. In England Y7 means near beginners, aged 11. Teachers will find that they can use sheets from different year groups to match the progress level of their class.
