PERFECT FOR CREATING A FESTIVE FEEL IN YOUR CLASSROOM AND IDEAL FOR DEVELOPING GERMAN LANGUAGE SKILLS AS WELL AS PRACTICING AND REVISING GERMAN NUMBERS 0-31 - 36 DIFFERENTIATED QUESTIONS WITH RECORDING SHEET AND FULL ANSWER KEY!
GERMAN CHRISTMAS NUMBERS 0-31 TASK CARDS really do help to create a
lively language learning environment. Students can develop, embed, reinforce and
refresh their knowledge of GERMAN numbers in a cooperative, communicative and
interactive way, independently of the teacher. They have a bonus multi-skill focus on
listening, speaking, pronunciation, reading and spelling. They’re great for helping
students familiarize themselves with, and develop competence in, speaking, reading,
writing and spelling numbers in GERMAN.
The cards are useful not only for a focus on Numbers 0-31, but also as a starter,
plenary and general ‘pick-me-up’ activity, as often as you can in lessons during the
run-up to CHRISTMAS, as the goal is not simply to learn how to count in GERMAN,
but also to enjoy working with GERMAN, and to feel confident about doing so. The
questions range in complexity and challenge, and are great for honing numeracy
skills too - especially if calculators are not allowed! The questions and design
provide lessons with a real festive feel - I’ve included a mini-reference list to help
students with their GERMAN CHRISTMAS words - one or two per small group of
students is sufficient. The cards do look great printed in color, though I’ve also
included a B&W version to help keep costs down.
The resource comprises the following 6 files:
* 2 sets (color/B&W) of 36 cards, 4 per A4 (8.5 x 11) paper. Print, laminate and cut
out. Depending on how long you want the activity to last for, choose a particular
number of cards per small group of students, and place them in a tin, bowl or small
box so that students can easily select a card, and then replace at the end of the
activity. You can simply place all the cards in the bowl/box and let students work
their way through, either in a single lesson, or across a series of lessons - I’ve found
10-15 minutes across several lessons can work really well. Students do need to
remember to file their recording sheets carefully!
* 2-page answer recording sheet (x2 - color/B&W). Best printed double-sided.
* 2-page answer key (x2—color & B&W), again best printed double-sided, and
laminated for longevity. One answer key for each small group is sufficient.
