Fishing for vocabulary..

Well.. It is time to go fishing!! 

In my FSL class, the students and I created a great game to identify common French words. The basic idea is that students will be able to read, recognize and spell the words correctly by identifying which ones they are.

It is a simple game where the students are in control of their learning and they are doing all the work to create and play the game. It is a fun way to have the students very very very engaged!
