IDEAL FOR DEVELOPING GERMAN LANGUAGE SKILLS AS WELL AS CONSOLIDATING 198 HIGH-FREQUENCY GERMAN VERBS VOCABULARY - MATCHING GERMAN AND ENGLISH GAMES CARDS AND TWO REFERENCE AND RECALL WORKBOOKS
This combined resource of GERMAN VERBS GAMES CARDS AND RECALL WORKBOOK SETS 1 AND 2 features 198 high-frequency GERMAN verbs, and offers an interactive and communicative alternative to 'traditional' vocabulary and grammar drilling activities. The games and activities really do help to create a lively and multi-skill language learning environment.
The alphabetical GERMAN-English reference lists of all 198 verbs work well as a learning support resource, and also as a whole-group reading out loud pronunciation and warm-up practice. The cards are versatile, and can be used for a number of language learning games; I’ve described several games you can play and ways you can use them in the classroom. They're great for a ready-made quick vocab quiz too! The game card template lets your students put their knowledge of GERMAN verbs to the test as they create quiz cards for each other. I've found this to be a really popular and successful activity.
There are three differentiated RECALL CHALLENGES in each workbook:
Students recall and write all the verbs in English from a GERMAN prompt - the GERMAN verbs are in alphabetical order
Students recall and write all the verbs in English from a GERMAN prompt, with the verbs appearing in random, rather than alphabetical order
Students recall and write all the verbs in GERMAN from an English prompt - this really does put their knowledge to the test - and is great for practicing spelling in GERMAN too.
I've classed the pack as suitable for Grades 7-12, but it really does depend on when your students began GERMAN, the level they are currently working at, and the level they are aspiring to. The games and activities are particularly useful as students prepare for examinations, and for the transition period between learning stages.
The cards take a bit of prep – printing, laminating and cutting out. Laminating is certainly worth the effort and expense - you will be able to re-use the cards for years to come. Each workbook has 18 pages, and is best photocopied double-sided for students to work through either in directed class time, or as independent learning at home. Encourage your students to complete the NOTES AND NEXT STEPS TEMPLATE to help them reflect on their learning, and to set progress targets.
The sets are available separately if you prefer, each priced at $3.50. This bundle comprises 4 non-editable files: the GAME CARDS x 2 and the REFERENCE, RECALL AND WRITE WORKBOOKS x 2. SETS 1-3 with 297 verbs and 3 workbooks is priced at $7.00 - you can see it here:
