Kids are motivated by money, but don’t worry you don’t have to give them all of your money. I know you give them enough as it is. However, they are also motivated by play money and fake gold coins. Here is a French vocabulary game that my kids adore.

First we cut out gold coins from construction paper. They can write numbers on them if they like and practice their French numbers. Then after the gold coins are finished, Mom (or Dad) gets all of them. But not for long…. Here is where the fun begins. Ask your kids what different words are in French, then for each one they get correct, they get a gold coin.

For more advanced students you can even take away coins if they miss one, but I don’t do that with my kids (yet).

To make the game more authentic you can use this French phrase when asking the question:
“Comment dit-on “apple” en français? (How does one say apple in French?)
