PERFECT FOR PRACTICING AND REVISING HOW TO TELL TIME IN GERMAN AND GREAT FOR DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS - 3 GAMES, 3 CHALLENGES!
FOCUS ON FIVE / TEN PAST AND FIVE / TEN TO THE HOUR
DINKY GERMAN TELLING TIME DOMINOES GAMES (2) features analog clock times in GERMAN. The games will help your students develop their skill in telling time in GERMAN in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, learning independently of the teacher. There’s a bonus multi-focus on listening, speaking, pronunciation, and reading. They’re ideal for independent learning, and perfect for pair and small-group work. Students can work happily challenging themselves and each other to create a perfect domino time-sequence line, on the classroom floor or on a long(ish) table, by matching the times and the clock faces.
There are three levels of challenge in each set:
CHILLOUT CHALLENGE features the analog times in numerical order, 1 — 12
CHAMPION CHALLENGE features all the times in topsy-turvy order, which really gets students thinking about how to tell time in GERMAN
SUPERCHARGED CHALLENGE features all the times in topsy-turvy order, with the clock faces first, so students really do need to know how to tell time in GERMAN in order to create a perfect domino time sequence!
Each set also features a GERMAN-English reference booklet with all the time phrases written out in both sequential and topsy-turvy order, which students find really helpful as a learning support resource.
I've classed the games as suitable for Grades 6-9, but it really does depend on when your students began GERMAN, and what stage they are currently working at. The games are really effective as a learning tool with any appropriate grade group. Play regularly as you work with telling time to map both improved recall and word recognition, as well as increasing confidence. Play as warmers, starters and plenaries across the whole school year too for maximum reinforcement -playing against a timer in teams works really well too.
The resource consists of three, non-editable files in a zipped format:
- dominoes games x 3 challenge levels
- reference booklet
SETS 1-3, featuring every analog clock time in GERMAN and nine differentiated games, are also available as a combined resource at the special price of $6.00 - have a look at it here:
