French CI units – updated for the 2022-23 school year!

updates to CI units

I have one more full week of summer vacation left and I’ve been using some of my time to make some updates to my level 1 and level 2 CI units. So if you currently use those, you’ll want to download them again, whether through the frenchified store or the TPT store.

What did I add to the French CI units?

Here’s an idea of what’s new and what’s still to be done.

  • cosmetic update to the daily lesson plan – organize it in a table so it’s clearer and more consistent
  • add page numbers to the daily lesson plans to help you find the activities
  • run through all URLs to check for dead links and update them
  • add a set of printable word wall posters for the vocabulary in the unit
  • add an English version of the unfair game to review the unit story
  • add a French version of the unfair game to review the unit story

So far, I’ve updated units 1-8 for the level 1 CI units. I will be working on level 2 next week.

Yet to come: I plan to make a Quizlet, Blooket and Gimkit game set for each unit. I’ll share those when they are available.

Why use these French CI units?

If you haven’t yet checked out the French CI units, you really should! They are meant for teachers who want to make the leap to comprehensible input but are still needing a bit of structure, or for those who are required to follow a district textbook/curriculum and can’t do the more untargeted CI. Each unit includes everything you need to teach the basic structures and vocabulary that are taught in most level 1 textbooks. You can read a bit more and see what exactly is included in each unit in my page about the French CI units. Each unit ends with a unit story, assessment and even an animated video!

These French CI units have many happy customers with lots of great reviews! Here’s what other teachers have said about them:

French CI units

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sara L. says “I’ve been wanting to take the CI plunge and this resource did it for me! I experimented with 7th graders who have French for only 9 weeks and my level I 8th graders. I wasn’t sure how the 7th graders would react but they LOVED it! I followed the resource almost exactly although I did need to spread the days out a bit. I was amazed at what students could DO at the conclusion of the unit. This did it for me, I have purchased the following units from Frenchified and am now a fan of CI! “

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Mme CC says “This resource is quite the gem. It has everything you need. I love the amount of prepared comprehensible input we have! My district textbook claims to be CI based, but there isn’t nearly enough input provided. As a busy teacher, I needed something with input and output tasks ready to go and this has it all! Thank you so much! I look forward to using the other units!”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Hannah H says “I liked all the repetition, and I purchased another of these packs. My students like the pictures, and recognized most of the famous people used in the PowerPoint. I love how the PowerPoint was in Word, I was able to turn it into google slides (we use Schoology, and it takes Google Docs) with no problem. Great resource!  It also comes with worksheets and some graphic organizers. Love all those things. “

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  Mlle D says “Another fantastic resource that proved to be versatile and well worth the money. It was so easy to pick and choose activities to include during distance learning. I love the consistency with your units and how well laid out and organized they are. “
