PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS AS WELL AS PRACTICING AND REVISING GERMAN VOCABULARY - 297 ESSENTIAL WORDS AND PHRASES FOR BEGINNING GERMAN LEARNERS!
These vocabulary games and activities really do help students to develop and embed their GERMAN vocabulary in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way. They’re ideal for independent learning, and perfect for pair and small-group work.

I've described the resource as suitable for Grades 6-9, but it does depend on the age at which your students begin GERMAN - the games and activities work well with any appropriate grade group, depending on their starting point.
Each set comprises the following non-editable files:
FILE 1: GERMAN and ENGLISH game cards, with all the words and phrases to use in a variety of games and activities - I've suggested a range of games and activities that have worked well for me. This file also includes the game card template, which encourages your students to apply their developing knowledge of GERMAN practically and creatively.
FILE 2 - this is an 18-page REFERENCE, RECALL & WRITE booklet with 3 differentiated RECALL & WRITE challenges to help your students really practice and review the vocabulary:
CHILLOUT CHALLENGE: students write from memory all the words and phrases in ENGLISH from a GERMAN prompt
CHAMPION CHALLENGE: students write from memory all the words and phrases in GERMAN from an ENGLISH prompt
SUPERCHARGED CHALLENGE: all the words and phrases appear in random order, and switch from GERMAN to ENGLISH at each question
Encourage students to complete the NOTES AND NEXT STEPS template, which helps them to reflect on their learning, and to set progress targets.
