Your students will really get off to a flying start with this set of 198 matching GERMAN and ENGLISH games cards, along with an 18-page REFERENCE, RECALL AND WRITE workbook - perfect for developing GERMAN language skills as well as practicing 99 essential beginning words and phrases.
The games and activities help students to develop and embed their beginning GERMAN vocabulary in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way. They’re ideal for independent learning, and perfect for pair and small-group work. Students can quiz/test themselves and each other on a regular basis - they're a very popular alternative to more traditional vocabulary 'drilling tasks', and really do help create a lively language learning environment.
This set features 99 BEGINNING WORDS AND PHRASES that students are likely to meet in the INTRODUCTORY stages of their GERMAN learning:
- Deutsch im Klassenzimmer
- die Tiere/das Tierreich, definite and indefinite article
- die Schulfächer
- Obst und Gemüse
- die Zahlen 41-60
- Fragen und Antworten
'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.
There are two 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. The game card template encourages your students to apply their developing knowledge of GERMAN practically and creatively.
FILE 2 - 18-page REFERENCE, RECALL AND WRITE WORKBOOK. All the words and phrases are listed GERMAN-ENGLISH in language categories, and there are 3 differentiated RECALL AND WRITE CHALLENGES to help your students really review and revise 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 - again, all the words and phrases are in their language category
SUPERCHARGED CHALLENGE: all the words and phrases appear in random order, and switch from GERMAN to ENGLISH at each question - this really does put students' memories to the test!
Encourage students to complete the NOTES AND NEXT STEPS template, which helps them to reflect on their learning, and to set progress targets.
