Irish Gaelic - Fun Way To Learn Bundle

Are you learning Irish Gaelic? Are you looking for a fun way to learn Irish Gaelic? I have developed a way to learn different languages based on my experience as an ESL teacher. This pack has 57 different settings for students to talk about in Irish Gaelic. The worksheets themselves are in English and the students do need to translate the places and objects they see into Irish Gaelic. At the end of the session, the students can play a fun game of word bingo to show they have mastered that day's vocabulary. Try it, it is a lot of fun for everyone!

Gaeilge: Leabhair Bheaga- briathra, an maith leat?, cé hé/hí seo?

classes 1st-4th, ages 6-10. These mini booklets can be printed out and completed as a whole class or group activity at the end of a unit of work, as revision or for homework. They can be laminated when completed and bound/stapled to make a class library of Irish 'Books' for children to read. These 'books' can be sent home to read with parents and used as revision. They can also be edited to add in more verbs/phrases of your choice to reflect the work done in your own classroom and also to differentiate for weaker/stronger children in your classroom. This idea can also be developed with other areas of the Irish Curriculum to make it useful for older classes. It can also be developed for the English Curriculum to make books on specific topics.

57 Irish Gaelic Setting Cards For Conversation Practice

57 Irish Gaelic Setting Cards For Conversation Practice

Welcome to the Let’s Talk in Irish Gaelic! pack. This set of cards looks at 57 different settings. The teacher describes something in the top card. The students then use this to model a sentence using the bottom set of pictures. There are lots of things to see and describe in every picture. When the students have completed this task, they can repeat it by working in pairs to discuss each picture. What works very well is for the two pictures to be directly projected on a wall. The teacher talks about the top picture, such as 'In my picture, I can see two seagulls flying.'... then the students model their responses, using the sentence structure provided by the teacher. There are lots of different ways you could use this pack. You could laminate them into two cards and get each student to talk about what they had seen in their picture. * Please note - these resources provide visual prompts and support to the students, not direct language instruction.
