These German Telling Time Dominoes Games
dominoes games are really popular with my students - they're a great alternative to more traditional 'drilling' activities, and help students become more independent in their learning. They're really ideal for pair and small-group work / centers.
The focus in on o'clock, half past (which can be a bit tricky in German!
), quarter to and quarter past the hour. There are three differentiated challenges
: clock times in order, with the time phrase first; clock times in topsy-turvy order, also with the time phrase first and finally, clock times in topsy-turvy order, but with the clock face first. The background design is different on each challenge, so students can easily identify which challenge they're working on.
I've included a time reference booklet
, which my students always find helpful as a 'forever' reference resource, and particularly when they're learning how to tell time. There are two German-English reference lists
- the first with all the time phrases in order and the second corresponding to the second challenge, with all the time phrases in topsyy-turvy order.
The resource consists of three, non-editable files in a zipped format:
- dominoes games x 3 challenge levels
- reference booklet
Although it's time-consuming, laminate the dominoes if you can, as they're easier to play with, and will last for a very long time! I've bundled together three sets of dominoes games with every analog time in German, 9 differentiated games and 3 reference booklets for $5.00:
