I deal a lot with kids who have more than one language and who are learning German. These are the activities that I've developed to help them tackle some of the problems they're having with it.
There‘s two fun preposition activities with animals, and there's a matching game for beginning sounds. I‘ve also created two domino games that can be cut out and played alone or with a friend.
Most games are set up for double printing. “Backsides” have extra information like the words of the objects or articles der, die, das, so that the learner can be quizzed.

Pages 3-5. What direction are the objects/animals flying? Are they flying under, next to, into, or over?
Pages 6-12. Where are the animals at? Are they on, in front of, behind, between, in, or next to?

Pages 21-28. Activity 3, Memory game for learning the plural. Many German words change their vowel sounds like Kopf-Köpfe, Buch-Bücher, Vogel-Vögel. There’s a double printing option to print the words on the backs of the cards.

Pages 30-39. The first domino game “Die Vokale”, examines words that are written the same except for their vowel sounds. The changing vowel sounds are highlighted in red:
Hose-Hase, Ohr-Uhr, Hand-Hund, Reise-Riese, Tuch-Teich, Rasen-Rosen, Tür-Tor Ohr-Uhr, and more.
Pages 40-45. Second domino game, „Wörter mit Sch-“. I have learners that have trouble pronouncing the beginning sounds schw-, schr- or schl-. This is a fun way to get in some practice!
