Can you think of other words with the same sound.

Maybe you came up with the following: au revoir, noir, moi, la voiture, l’histoire, froid.

Write the following poem on the board, and fill in the sound ‘oi’:

Coucou, Ant _ _ ne,

c’est m _ _ !

J’ai tr _ _ p_ _ ssons.

Et t_ _ ?

J’ai un petit _ _ seau.

Oh là là!

We would like you to say the poem aloud and learn it for the next session.

If you would like to, you may also like to write your own poem with some other ‘oi’ words.
