PERFECT FOR PRACTICING CONJUGATION OF HABEN AND SEIN AND DEVELOPING GERMAN LANGUAGE SKILLS - 10 DIFFERENTIATED WORD SEARCHES WITH ANSWER KEYS!
WORTRÄTSEL are a fabulous way of encouraging learners to engage with the written word in GERMAN, refreshing and reinforcing language as they complete the grids. This set focuses on the key verbs HABEN and SEIN, and features ten differentiated word searches, with each consecutive grid increasing in challenge.
There are 5 GERMAN to ENGLISH grids, 1-5, where learners are prompted with the GERMAN verbs, and look for them in GERMAN in the grid. For additional consolidation, each grid also features an ENGLISH verb list that they have to complete, really putting their knowledge to the test! There are also 5 ENGLISH to GERMAN grids, where the prompt verbs are given in ENGLISH, and learners have to find the GERMAN equivalent in the grid. For additional consolidation and practice in writing and conjugation in GERMAN, they also complete the GERMAN verb list on each page. The reference sheet, with both verbs conjugated in full, is a useful learning support resource, which students can stick in their workbooks or file in their learning folders for longer-term reference. This also helps to familiarize them with grammatical terminology, such as ‘masculine’, ‘feminine’ and ‘formal’. There is an answer grid for each word search, so that learners can check their own or each others’ answers - or use for a little extra help if they need it! The word searches are in landscape format, as this mirrors the common direction of reading from left to right, facilitating learner engagement with the activity.
Use as starters, refreshers, plenaries or fun-time fillers at any time during the school year, as well as when you’re exploring verbs and conjugation in GERMAN. For a real focus on verb conjugation, and to facilitate learner independence, photocopy all the grids as a workbook, and let pupils simply work their way through. The workbook format is great for home learning activities too. Create an answer key booklet - one booklet for small groups of 3 or 4 learners is sufficient. If you create workbooks and answer key booklets, these are best prepared photocopied double-sided and with a double staple on the left-hand side. This format is far more reader, writer and learner-friendly than using a single-staple in the top left-hand corner for example.
