The three activities offer students an opportunity to work collaboratively.  Here is my favorite one because it is most interactive:

Students cut up the squares and line them up in order in one long strip placing the response under the prompt. There are two variations

–Start with principio/début and go to fin

–Start with fin and go to principio/début

  1. Wonderful idea. I’m calling this activity “Partner Oral Dominoes” because the name will help me remember what students need to do. This activity can be used for for a bunch of different type of language interactions, such as common questions and their answers, present infinitives with past participles, idiomatic expressions, etc.

  2. I bought a French one of these on Teacherspayteachers and used it but then forgot how it was used. The Oral Dominoes is a good idea. The kids definitely liked this format and I like how the variations are described here!
