Spanish grammar auction activity

Spanish grammar auction activity

How do you make grammar less dry? Is there a way to test understanding whilst also getting students to focus on simple but important details like the ending of a word? It turns out there are lots of ways of doing just that; this is one of them. It works really well in any language, and can be easily adapted to different topics in less than 5 minutes. Each student, or group of students, starts with a set amount of imaginary money and works through the questions to end with more or less. It’s the speed and the competition of it that makes it exciting and helps you to really see who is looking at the detail. To differentiate, you can simply alter how long you leave each slide on the board. You can even get a student to explain why an answer is correct, so you can broaden the focus a little and offer a little reward such as letting that student (or the group) be first out of the door at the end of the lesson. This is so versatile and so easy to change that what this resource really is is a template. If you don’t have, or don’t want to use, mini-whiteboards, then simply remove that line of the slide and replace it with your preferred alternative.

GCSE German tenses practice and translation worksheet

A two-sided worksheet which works through a set of tasks, leading up to two translations. It starts with simple tasks to complete the spellings of verbs in the present then perfect tense, asking pupils to translate these sentences too. Then a task using Ich möchte/Ich will/Ich werde + infinitive to translate sentences into German. Then a more open-ended task for pupils to make up their own sentences in all three tenses; this task can be made more challenging by requiring more able pupils to include certain additional information if you choose.
