French -ER Verbs
This is a Stand Alone Instructional Resource. Students will get practice conjugating –er French verbs and will also learn about exceptions. The audience of the StAIR are first year French language learners. It is designed to meet the needs of students age 5 and older. The learner will learn which verb endings go with which subject. The learner will also learn to look for certain letter combinations that require an exception to be used. French –er verb conjugation is one of the first grammar concepts students learn in the first year of French. Students will deduce the rules from examples, and apply rules to examples. The learner will get feedback from actions taken by using action buttons that give a congratulatory prompt or encourage the learner to revisit the example/rule and to try again.

This Stand alone instruction has some great resources. The words spoken for the student are a great resource. It is helpful that there is an outside practice as wel.. I think this could be really useful for students, but they might need to use it more than once to really cemment the concept.
There were some pages that I wanted to go back and review before answering questions. I think it would also be useful to provide students with a chart, or have duel screens when they are completing the outside practice.

This is a stand-alone instruction resource for French -er verb conjugation. I think this resource used a good scaffolding of instruction. I really like the use of the internet site Languagesite.org as it allows the student to practice and hear the words with correct conjugation and pronunciation. It addresses different learning styles by allowing them to hear, see, and practice the words.
There were some pages that I wanted to go back and review before I answered the questions, but there wasn't an option to go back.
Maybe adding some support when the student answers the question, whether it be right or wrong, that would help reinforce the concepts.
