FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES POSTERS FLASHCARDS

(4)
FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES LA FRANCOPHONIE LES PAYS FRANCOPHONES My students really enjoy seeing the scope of the Francophone world - these posters create an instant introduction to it, and give the learning environment a great French look and feel. At the same time, they promote French as a living language, spoken widely across the world, and featuring in the everyday life of the learning environment. I’ve included countries or regions where a significant number of the population speak French as either their first or second language, such as Viet Nam. Each poster shows the continent, country and capital city in French, and its national flag. Introducing and practicing language with flashcards is a really successful directed teaching and learning activity, and these are the ideal size for use as both learning flashcards and all year-round learning display posters. There may be a number of countries and capital cities that students do not know, or are not aware of, so the word wall definitely helps them fully develop their general awareness, knowledge and understanding of Les pays francophones - students are often genuinely amazed at the scope of the French-speaking world - French is spoken on every continent! I’ve used the definite article, as I’ve found that this helps embed the concept of gender in French, and that proper nouns, such as countries, are subject to gender agreement rules too. There are two backgrounds to choose from - French flag or black wave. In total, there are 80 posters / flashcards - 40 with French flag background, and 40 with black wave background. Laminate the posters if you can - they are easier to hang for display, or to use as flashcards for introducing language, and they will last for absolutely years.

GERMAN CONJUGATION PRACTICE BUNDLE #1

GERMAN CONJUGATION PRACTICE BUNDLE #1

16 Resources
ALEVEL GCSE GERMAN VERBS CONJUGATION PRESENT PERFECT IMPERFECT TENSES SIXTEEN WORKBOOKS & ANSWER KEYS: REGULAR VERBS : SEPARABLE VERBS : REFLEXIVE VERBS : IRREGULAR & MIXED VERBS : HIGH-FREQUENCY VERBS : VERBS TAKING SEIN IN THE PERFECT TENSE : 2,400 CONJUGATION QUESTIONS My students love these for quick conjugation recall practice, and they're the perfect activity for practice and revision. This is a bundle of sixteen 'quick conjugation' workbooks, which provide students with lots of opportunities to practice how to conjugation a range of high-frequency verbs in German with a focus on three tenses: present, perfect and imperfect. One of the workbooks focuses on verbs taking sein in the perfect tense. There are 150 conjugations in each workbook, with an individual focus on particular verbs groups. That's 2,400 quick conjugation questions in total. There is a complete answer key for each individual workbook too - my students really like to have the answer keys, as they find it enables them to work more independently, and they benefit from both self and peer assessment. I find answer keys really essential, as they provide students with additional opportunity to engage with language. I've been using the workbooks for a long time, and found they work best when I give my students regular and frequent chances to revisit the workbooks, including noting their thoughts on the Notes and Next Steps template. That really does help them to focus on their progress. We also use the template to guide and inform whole-group discussions about German conjugation in particular and German grammar in general. Even my advanced students get the chance to go 'back to the beginning' and work quickly through the conjugations, just to be sure that they have really grasped the concept. I use the workbooks as classwork, as homework, as 'free choice' resources, holiday refresher and revision work, and also as focused activities for sub lessons. They really do work well in a broad range of contexts. The verbs groups are: - regular verbs - irregular and mixed verbs - regular and irregular separable verbs - regular and irregular reflexive verbs - regular and irregular high-frequency verbs - verbs taking sein in the perfect tense The tenses are: - present tense (Präsens) - perfect tense (Perfekt) - imperfect tense (Präteritum) The structure of each quick conjugation workbook is: 10-page work book with two alphabetical verb reference lists: German-English and English-German Three differentiated conjugation challenges, each with 50 individual conjugations: Conjugation Challenge One: each verb conjugated in German across a range of pronouns, with students writing the corresponding English verb conjugation. Conjugation Challenge Two: gives the infinitive of each verb in German, specifying the target pronoun. Students write the corresponding verb conjugation in German. Conjugation challenge Three: students write the corresponding German verb conjugation, and its infinitive, from an English prompt. * 6-page answer key book which students find really useful, and I actually consider essential for this type of workbook - either to self- or peer-assess - it's also a great time saver for teachers, as well as a way of encouraging students to really assume more responsibility for, and independence in, their learning. * Notes and Next Steps page - we use this to map progress, and to note ideas for improvement. We also use it as to guide and inform whole-group discussion about learning and progress in general, which is a really popular and effective activity. It's also a great place to note any additional verbs that students learn, and this helps to build up a really strong verb vocab bank.

(0)
FRENCH TELLING TIME TELLING TIME IN FRENCH LIRE L’HEURE DOMINOES GAMES - TWENTY & TWENTY-FIVE MINUTES AND TWENTY TO & TWENTY-FIVE MINUTES PAST THE HOUR - THREE DIFFERENTIATED GAMES & CHALLENGES WITH A BONUS 1-12 TIME SEQUENCE My students love to work and learn independently, and dominoes games are a firm favourite. They’re really versatile, and we use them not only during the introduction phase of learning these particular clock times, but at many times across the school year - as starters, warm-ups, plenaries, practice & refresh, and also free-choice activity time - I always have a range of folders ready for my students to select particular content according to what area they feel they’d like to work on. THREE GAMES, THREE CHALLENGES! Challenge One: times in numerical order, time phrase to clock face Challenge Two: times in topsy-turvy order, time phrase to clock face Challenge Three: times in topsy-turvy order, clock face to time phrase There are also two full reference lists of all clock times - both in numerical and in topsy-turvy order, which my students find these really useful - as they become more confident about telling time, they’ll need them less and less, though it’s useful as a ‘forever’ reference resource. It’s a lot of work, but laminating is certainly worth the effort if you can - the dominoes are far easier and sturdier to work with, and last for absolutely years!

EUROPEAN DAY OF LANGUAGES QUIZ #3

EUROPEAN DAY OF LANGUAGES QUIZ #3

(0)
EUROPEAN DAY OF LANGUAGES QUIZ IDEAL TEAM OR CLASS QUIZ FOR THE EUROPEAN DAY OF LANGUAGES - AND AS A YEAR-ROUND GENERAL KNOWLEDGE QUIZ! The quiz features 100 multiple-choice questions, each with four possible responses. It’s perfect for developing students’ awareness, understanding and knowledge of all things European. The questions range from basic general knowledge to more specialised factual knowledge. The themes and topics are: = arts & culture = famous people = food = geography = history = landmarks & monuments = language = literature = music; = politics = science = society. You can be Quiz Question Captain, but students do enjoy taking on that role in turns. The questions often stimulate further and deeper discussion about particular themes and topics - for example, the question regarding Eyjafjallajökull is a great example of a ‘modern-day’ volcano eruption, and the implications for both national and international communities, particularly following the recent eruption of Cumbre Vieja on La Palma, one of the Spanish Canary Islands. I often prompt students for additional responses based on the answer options - for example The longest river in Europe, the Volga, runs through which countries? Which countries does the Danube or the Rhine run through? and so on. I always award extra points for this, which increases the competitive edge a little! The quiz is non-editable for copyright reasons. The first slide shows a map of Europe, which I use to discuss general geography and the range of European countries, some of which students may not be aware of. Each question slide is followed by a corresponding answer slide, with the correct response in capital letters. The quiz is ideal for whole-group or team quizzes, with students choosing a European-themed team name. Play in homeroom / form time or in any subject area lesson as a brain-break - the questions really are cross-curricular! I use the quiz several times at intervals across the school year - this really does put students’ memory and developing knowledge to the test. The quiz goes down particularly well on the European Day of Languages, and at key points in the school year: end of year, back to school, Christmas and so on.

GERMAN SPEAKING PRACTICE 4

(3)
GCSE GERMAN ALEVEL SPEAKING SEPARABLE VERBS PERFECT TENSE 100 question and answer prompt cards providing German learners with structured talk opportunities, and will also get them listening, reading and writing. They’re ideal for independent learning, and perfect for pair and small-group work. The prompt cards feature language and structures suitable for advanced KS3 into KS4 German learners. The reference booklet includes all the questions and answers written out in full. Students use the NOTES AND NEXT STEPS template to reflect on their learning, and think about what they might reasonably do to progress in their learning. We also use this to guide and inform whole-group discussion about learning and progress in general, and to note any new verbs, vocab and ideas for creating prompts. The question and answer writing templates give students the opportunity to apply their German very practically, as they create both questions and answers for each other. This is a great team activity too. We also use the prompt cards for a whole range of games, and I’ve described how to play several games and activities that you can start with. The prompt cards do take a bit of prep: printing and laminating. Laminating is definitely recommended, as you’ll be able to use the cards for years to come. Print out an appropriate number of question and answer templates (black and white is fine). Students should ideally have their own individual reference booklet that they can keep in their learning folders to use for reference, practice and revision when they need to.

FRENCH FRUITS & VEGETABLES I HAVE WHO HAS GAMES

FRENCH FRUITS & VEGETABLES I HAVE WHO HAS GAMES

17 Resources
PRIMARY FRENCH FRUITS & VEGETABLES I HAVE WHO HAS FRUITS ET LÉGUMES EN FRANÇAIS J’AI QUI @ £1.20 EACH IN THE BUNDLE A three-game bundle I have Who has? is a whole-group lively & communicative language learning game,* perfect for practising, reinforcing & refreshing French target language*. The games feature a range of fruits and vegetables in French, with Set 1 focusing on fruits, Set 2 on vegetables and Set 3 on a combination of fruits and vegetables. The games have a multi-skill focus: listening, speaking & reading, with an important bonus focus on social interaction and participation. It’s perfect for pronunciation practice too - particularly with silent s, the audible sound of x (deux and dix for example) and so on. I point out particular phonemes and sounds too - ch in champignons, the soft c in citron compared to the hard c in carotte and the eu in chou-fleur for example. The aim of the game is to create a French sentence chain as quickly as possible, starting with J’ai la première carte, and ending with the final card, C’est la dernière carte. The game works well if the sentence sequence is placed on the floor, a longish table, or other flat surface. I created the game for my young beginner learners, but I’ve also played the game with my older adult learners, who really enjoy it too. The design is four cards per page, which allows for a large font - this is really important for beginner language learners who are familiar with the written word, and starting tolink spelling with sound. Try to print in colour if you can - it adds to the visual appeal of the game, which is a real motivator for learning. There are 29 fruits featured in the games: green apple; red apple; banana; cherry; date; fig; gooseberries; grapefruit; green grapes; red grapes; honeydew melon; kiwi; lemon; lime; mango; nectarine; olive; orange; papaya; peach; pear; pineapple; pumpkin; raspberry; redcurrants; rhubarb; starfruit; strawberry; watermelon. with 28 vegetables: artichoke; asparagus; aubergine; green beans; beetroot; broccoli; Brussels sprout; cabbage; carrot; cauliflower; celery; cucumber; garlic; leek; lettuce; mushroom; onion; peas; green pepper; red pepper; yellow pepper; potato; sweet potato; radish; spinach; sweetcorn; tomato; zucchini. All the fruits and vegetables may not be in my longer-term learning plan, but the learning objective moves beyond simply learning individual units of vocab - the images help students infer meaning from context, supported by the visual prompts and clues - this in turn supports them in developing their French language skills in the longer and more complex sentences. There is implicit input on grammatical concepts such as adjectival agreement, gender, definite, indefinite and partitive articles and position of adjectives, either preceding or proceeding the particular noun. This is a very successful way of really getting the most of what looks like a straightforward game for consolidating the target vocabulary - it is actually so much more! The question card templates provide an additional learning activity, with students applying their developing French language knowledge creatively and practically, as they make game cards for the class - this is a really popular activity with my students. Download, print out, laminate, cut out & shuffle the cards. I’d definitely recommend you laminate the cards, despite the extra prep and expense. They’re far more learner-friendly, and they will last for absolutely years. Distribute the cards, one or two per student, depending on how many students you have in your group. I often play too - students really do enjoy it when I join in, and they seem to work that little harder on their concentration, reading out loud and pronunciation. Students walk around the room, talking to each other in their best French accent, sharing the information on their cards, until they have arranged the cards in the correct order. The game works best played against a timer, regularly over a longer-term series of lessons - can students beat beat their own time record? Try this French Numbers I have, Who has game - you can try it out with your students to see if this kind of activity would work well for their learning: FRENCH NUMBERS 0-31 I HAVE WHO HAS? J’AI QUI A? https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/french-numbers-0-31-game-i-have-who-has-6443472 I’ve included a selection of my popular French freebies you may not have seen in my store.

FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES BUNTING

FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES BUNTING

(0)
BACK TO SCHOOL FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES BUNTING BANNERS It’s great to create a new look for the new school year - I use bunting / banners not only to create a real French look and feel in the learning environment, but also to promote everyday language and core vocabulary for learners of all ages. Bunting works well throughout the entire school year, but definitely has a celebratory back to school feel! The bunting has a small tag that you can clip to a line of string across the room (like a washing line!), or to a wall. They look good either alphabetically, or according to geographical location. The bunting creates an instant introduction to the French-speaking world, with 40 individual banners showing a range of world countries and territories where French is an official language. Each banner shows the country and capital city in French, and its national flag. There may be a number of countries and capital cities that students do not know, or are not aware of, so the bunting also help them develop their general awareness, knowledge and understanding of world geography. I’ve got a selection of related resources in my store, for example: FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES, CAPITAL CITIES & FLAGS POSTERS FLASHCARDS https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/resource-11682869 There’s a word wall too: FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES, CAPITAL CITIES & FLAGS WORD WALL https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/resource-12098711 This is a set of French-speaking countries flags label & colour worksheets: FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES, CAPITAL CITIES & FLAGS WORKSHEETS : LABEL & COLOUR https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/resource-12565188 and a set of games cards, which are great for pair and small-group work - my students definitely know their Pays Francophones after playing a few times with these!

FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES FLAGS LABEL & COLOUR

KS3 FRENCH KS4 FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES FLAGS LABEL & COLOUR French-speaking countries, capital cities and flags label and colour worksheets provide great learning opportunities for any appropriate age group, at any time of the school year, and are definitely the perfect activity for consolidating knowledge of these countries and flags - students definitely really enjoy testing their memory and colouring the flags! Students can develop their language skills, as well as their knowledge of both the French-speaking and wider world, in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, independently of the teacher. There are 40 countries where French is an official language, and may be a number of countries and capital cities that students do not know, or are not aware of, so the games help them fully develop their general awareness, knowledge and understanding of Les pays francophones. There is a 2-page country, capital city and flag reference list of all countries and capitals, which students find useful to read through before working on the sheets - I laminate these, and one list per small group of 5-6 students is sufficient. It can also be used as a year-round reference resource, which students can file in their workbooks or learning folders. Laminate the cards and reference sheets if you can - you will be able to use them for years to come. There are four sets of worksheets, each with four pages: Set 1: colour flags, students label with country and capital city Set 2: blank flags, students label country and capital city, and colour the flags Set 3: blank flags, country is given, students label capital city, and colour the flags Set 4: blank flags, capital city is given, students label country, and colour the flags I’ve also got a set of French-speaking countries flashcards / posters in my store (£3.75): FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES FLASHCARDS POSTERS https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/resource-11682869 There’s a word wall too (£3): FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES WORD WALL https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/french-speaking-countries-word-wall-12098711 These French-speaking countries, capital cities and flags games cards are really popular with my students (£3): FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES, CAPITAL CITIES & FLAGS GAMES CARDS https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/french-speaking-countries-capitals-flags-cards-11964697 Here’s a BIENVENUE ! bunting / banners freebie which is great for back to school: FRENCH GREETINGS BUNTING BANNERS : BIENVENUE ! https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-12565189 This resource is copyright, all rights reserved.

GERMAN CHRISTMAS WORD SEARCHES

(0)
GERMAN CHRISTMAS WEIHNACHTEN WORD SEARCHES - 10 DIFFERENTIATED WORD SEARCHES WITH ANSWER KEYS, GRID TEMPLATES & GERMAN CHRISTMAS VOCABULARY LIST Word searches a fabulous way of encouraging learners to engage with the written word, practising and reinforcing language as they complete the grids. This set features* ten differentiated word searches*, focusing on a wide range of German Christmas vocabulary, with each consecutive grid increasing in challenge. The searches offer a really useful learning opportunity - enabling learners to engage with German Christmas vocab, which is a great springboard for discussion on Christmas traditions and practices in Germany and other German-speaking countries, comparing them to other traditions and practices students know, but also working on reading, writing, spelling and German language skills in general. Learners are able to identify which direction words are located in within the grid by referring to the arrow key. There are also five grid templates for learners to create their own searches for each other — this is a really popular activity, and I’ve found that my learners often like to create grids for family at home too. The templates enable learners to apply their language practically and creatively, which is really important at this stage of German language development. There is an answer grid for each word search, so that learners can check their answers - or use for a little extra help if they need it! For me, answer keys are essential, as they not only provide learners with an additional opportunity to engage with language, but they also help them develop more independence in their learning. They’re also a great teacher time-saver - a real bonus! There is a single word search per page, portrait format. I like to ensure that text is accessible to all learners—and at this stage of their learning, it’s absolutely essential that language looks accessible and manageable. Some of the more challenging grids do look a little cramped, as a good number of the German words are quite long. There are 50 German Christmas-themed words across the word searches - it’s not necessary for students to learn all the words explicitly - over time, they tend to become familiar with all of them anyway. Looking for unfamiliar words in the grids really works well for implicit learning. There’s a full alphabetical vocab list, which is a greatlong-term German Christmas vocab reference resource, which my students like to add to when they can.

FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES WORD SEARCHES

FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES ACTIVITIES LES PAYS FRANCOPHONES Mots cachés are a fabulous way of encouraging students to engage with the written word in French, refreshing and reinforcing language as they complete the grids. This set features ten differentiated word searches with answer keys, with each consecutive grid increasing in challenge. It focuses on 40 countries / territories where French is an official language. The word searches help students develop their knowledge and awareness of the Francophone world, and just how widely it is spoken around the globe. I’ve used the definite article for the countries, so that students can see which countries are masculine, and which feminine, which in turn helps consolidate knowledge of gender in French. In Grids 1-4, students search for a particular country. In Grids 5 & 6, they search for a range of capital cities. Grid 7 gives 16 capital cities as prompts, and students search for the corresponding countries in the grid. Similarly, in Grid 8, there are 16 countries given, and students search for the corresponding capital cities in the grid. Grids 9 & 10 show a selection of national flags, and students search for the corresponding countries in the grid, and also write the country name in the prompt box next to the individual flag. There is a single grid per page, A4 (8.5 x 11) portrait format. Students can tell in which direction the words are written by looking at the arrow key on each grid. Each grid has a corresponding answer key, so that students can check their answers - or use for a little extra help if they need it. There is also a complete reference sheet of all 40 countries, capital cities and flags - you can either laminate this to share around small groups of students, or give one to each student to stick into their learning workbooks as a general longer-term reference resource. The word searches work well across the school year, not only when you’re focusing on la Francophonie. I use them as starters, refreshers, plenaries or fun-time fillers quite regularly - this really does help embed students’ learning, and they genuinely enjoy putting their memory to the test!

PRIMARY SPANISH YEAR 7 SPAIN COUNTRY FACTS & ACTIVITIES really do help to create a lively language learning environment for young learners of Spanish, and offer a popular alternative to more traditional, teacher-led ’information about Spain’ lessons. Children can develop their knowledge of the Hispanic world - and through guided whole-group discussion - their home / host country too, in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, in part independently of the teacher. There is a bonus multi-focus on listening, speaking, pronunciation, reading, writing and spelling, and is a great way of aligning language learning with developing literacy skills in English. The resource comprises the following non-editable files: * 20 facts cards - there are four facts in each of the following topic groups: geography, country, landmarks, language and food. There are blank templates for children to research and create their own facts cards for each other. * Facts recording sheet challenge level 1 - there are two options: either two or four fact recording boxes per page. Children read their selected facts, and copy the information in the boxes. * Facts recording sheet challenge level 2 - there are also two options: two or four fact recording boxes in this challenge level. However, there is a more open-ended task: responding to the question “What did you learn?”. This requires children to read their fact card, process the information, and then recreate it in their own words, describing the fact in the context of what they have learned. * 28 question / comprehension cards — the questions have a differentiated range of challenge, and are based on the knowledge developed through the whole-group presentation and discussion, and the facts cards. There is one ’independent research’ question, which I use as a springboard for further discussion based on children’s own developing interests about Spain. There are blank templates here too - creating questions is a great way to think about and apply knowledge and learning. * question / comprehension cards recording sheet * whole-group facts presentation & discussion Files are non-editable in a zipped format.

GEOGRAPHY EUROPE COUNTRIES CAPITALS FLAGS PRESENTATION & QUIZ

(1)
KS3 GEOGRAPHY KS4 EUROPE COUNTRIES CAPITAL CITIES FLAGS PRESENTATION & QUIZ an ideal introduction to Europe! Create an instant introduction to Europe and help your students develop their awareness of European countries, capital cities and flags with this whole-group presentation and quiz. There are60 countries featured in the quiz. Each country is presented individually with its capital city and flag - as you show the slides, encourage students to shout out the country names as they appear - this tends to aid memory quite considerably - I point out the location of each country on the background map, which helps students situate each country within the continent, and visualizing the location of the countries again aids memory. The presentation is followed by a series of 100 questions. The questions are structured slightly differently to differentiate the challenge a little: some focus on the countries, others on capital cities, and some on flags. Taken together, students will definitely develop a sound locational knowledge of the countries of Europe, their capital cities and flags. The quiz works particularly well with several teams - encourage each team to choose aEuropean-themed team game. Teams can either take it in turns to answer a question, but it’s also great fun, and keeps up a lively pace, to play as a SHOUT IT OUT! quiz - whoever shouts out the correct answer first wins the point! The quiz works really well across the entire school year, and not just in geography or social science lessons - try it regularly in form time too! The resource is not editable for copyright reasons - the presentation moves on with a click. Each question slide is followed by the relevant answer slide - simply click, and it appears!

GEOGRAPHY EUROPE COUNTRIES & CAPITALS QUIZZES

(0)
KS3 GEOGRAPHY KS4 EUROPEAN COUNTRIES AND CAPITAL CITIES - 2 QUIZZES WITH 120 MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTIONS European countries & capitals multiple-choice quizzes are great games, suitable for any age range, at any time! I play them a lot, at different times of the school year, and with all different age groups. We keep a tally, so that we can track whether students are beating their own record. All students can develop their knowledge of the geography of Europe in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, giving their memory a workout at the same time! The quizzes work really well as a whole-group team quiz, and are also perfect as a pair or small-group activity. The set contains all European countries & capital cities, including some island communities such as the Faroe Islands and Guernsey. Each question has 3 answers to choose from. The correct answer is given in CAPITAL LETTERS, to ensure that all students can participate - they really enjoy being the quiz master! The quiz cards are numbered, but I prefer to ask in random order: we simply place all the cards in a bowl, box or tin, and work our way through! There are two quiz challenges - Challenge 1 gives the country as a prompt, with three possible capital cities to choose from. Challenge 2 gives the capital city as a prompt, with three possible countries to choose from. The quiz card templates allow students to put their memory and recall to the test in a different way, and to apply their knowledge very practically: they can create their own set of multiple-choice questions for each other. I always laminate my learning cards, as they’re far more user-friendly, and last for absolutely years! Each challenge has a different background - Europe map and green check - so that you and your students can easily identify which challenges the cards belong to, but I’ve also included the quizzes with no background, so that you can keep prep costs to a minimum. My students also find reference resources really useful - download this list of all European countries and capital cities for free here: EUROPEAN COUNTRIES AND CAPITAL CITIES REFERENCE LIST https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/geography-europe-countries-and-capital-cities-reference-12128929 Please note this is the Geography World Continents Europe Countries & Capitas Quizzes version of my European Day of Languages Europe Countries & Capital Cities quizzes - please ensure you have not already purchased the European Day of Languages version.

GERMAN CITIES WORD SEARCHES

GERMAN CITIES WORD SEARCHES

(1)
GERMAN CITIES WORD SEARCHES - FIVE DIFFERENTIATED GERMAN CITIES WORD SEARCHES WITH ANSWER KEYS AND GRID TEMPLATE - PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING GERMAN LANGUAGE SKILLS AND DISCOVERING MAJOR CITIES IN GERMANY Word searches are great for encouraging students to engage with the written word in German - they refresh and reinforce language as they complete each grid. Students get a really good introduction to, and overview of, the geography of Germany and a range of major German cities in a slightly different way. We talk about other cities and towns students may know or discover too. With this set, each grid increases in challenge, and students can tell in which direction the words are written by looking at the arrow key. I always give my students answer keys for these types of activity - it’s an additional opportunity to engage with language, it helps them develop more independence in their learning, and they genuinely enjoy ‘correcting’ their own and especially each others’ work. The templates help students apply their knowledge of language more creatively and practically - and they can include cities they discover too. The reference sheet works well as a long-term reference resource, not just for these particular word searches. I use word searches in a range of contexts, not only when we’re looking specifically at the focus language - they’re great for starters, for free-choice activities, for sub lessons and so on.

FRENCH SPEAKING PRACTICE CARDS #1

(0)
KS3 FRENCH GCSE FRENCH KS4 FRENCH SPEAKING PROMPTS PRACTICE These French speaking prompts are perfect for developing speaking skills - there are 100 question and answer cards and a reference book focusing on beginner to advanced beginner conversation. They’re also great for multi-skill language learning - they give students structured talk opportunities and will also get them listening, reading and writing. They’re ideal for independent learning, and perfect for pair and small-group work - my students frequently select the speaking and writing cards for their free-choice learning activity. The prompt cards feature language and structures that your students are likely to meet in the advanced beginner to intermediate stages of their French programme, including a range of tenses. The reference book includes all the questions and answers written out in French. Students find it a very useful learning support resources and it’s also handy for whole-group pronunciation and reading-out loud practice. Students use the Ideas, Notes and Next Steps template to reflect on their learning, and think about what they might reasonably do to progress in their learning - we use this to guide and inform discussions we have as a whole-group about where students think they are at the moment, and what they think they might like to work a little more on. They also jot down ideas for their own question and answers that they create for each other. The question and answer card writing templates give students the opportunity to apply their French very practically, as they create both questions and answers for each other, using the reference book as a form of writing frame to help them form their language correctly. This is a great team activity too. We also use the cards for a whole range of games, and I’ve described how to play several you can start with that work really well for us. Try this French Speaking Prompts freebie - it will give you a good idea of whether this kind of activity would work well for your students: FRENCH SPEAKING CARDS PRACTICE FREEBIE https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/french-speaking-practice-freebie-12582719 Have a browse in my store for my French speaking activities, and a wide range of other French teaching and learning materials, with special offer bundles, resource boxes, and lots of freebies too!

FRENCH CHRISTMAS BINGO

FRENCH CHRISTMAS BINGO

(1)
PRIMARY FRENCH KS3 FRENCH CHRISTMAS BINGO GAMES* an ideal multi-skill language learning activity for developing listening, speaking, reading, writing and spelling skills for French language learners of all ages - in my experience, adult learners really enjoy a few competitive games of bingo too! I’ve described the games as not grade-specific, as the general goal for me is not to learn a lot of French Christmas vocabulary as such, but to work quite specifically on French language skills development. There are 100 grids in total, in both colour & BW. The color grids definitely look really good, but can prove expensive to prep - I have sets that I’ve laminated, and students use wipe-free pens, so that the grids can be used many times. Younger learners do tend to prefer the BW grids, taking some additional time to colour them in themselves. I often combine that activity with revision of colours, which can work really well too. The games are designed for players to cross off all the words or pictures on their grids in order to win the game. This set comprises the following: 40 picture-only bingo 12-square grids, 4 per page (10 pages) You can give students a random selection of pages, with students selecting the order of grids they play from. You can also cut out the grids, and place them in a small bowl or similar object on tables. Students then select grids randomly from the bowl. For additional challenge, students can play all four grids in a single game. Colour and BW 40 words & pictures bingo 12-square grids, 4 per page (10 pages) Colour & BW 10 picture-only 30-square grids (A4 portrait format) Distribute the grids among students, several grids per student, which they choose randomly for every game. There should be several winners per game, depending on the size of the group. Colour & B&W 10 words & pictures 30-square grids (A4 portrait format) Colour & B&W Calling card, featuring 32 French Christmas words. Print or photocopy double-sided to minimise prep. There are 8 check columns per page, so that you can really get the most from each card - call the words randomly, ticking them off as you go, so that you can check the winning grids. You can vary the use of the definite and indefinite article, singular or plural. Students should also be the bingo caller, rather than always the teacher. Calling card, featuring the English translation of the French Christmas words. This is great for additional challenge - students hear the English word, and translate it quickly, looking for it in writing in French in the grid Files are non-editable in a zipped format.

GERMAN PHONICS PRONUNCIATION SPELLING BUNDLE #1

GERMAN PHONICS PRONUNCIATION SPELLING BUNDLE #1

7 Resources
KS3 KS4 GERMAN PRONUNCIATION RHYMING WORDS PHONICS SPELLING PRACTICE - 99 WORDS FOCUSING ON PHONICS, SOUNDS AND RHYMES - CARDS AND WHOLE-GROUP PRONUNCIATION PRACTICE - 198 WORDS FOCUSING ON PHONICS, SOUNDS, SPELLING AND RHYMES - CARDS AND TWO WHOLE-GROUP PRONUNCIATION PRESENTATIONS @ £2.00 each in the bundle There are 198 cards featuring a range of sounds in German, and a whole-group presentation and practice resource. We revisit the activities frequently to help students develop phonic awareness and a thorough understanding of how German spelling and sounds work. I’ve found that students are quickly able to recognize sound patterns, enabling them to predict the pronunciation of new words accurately. The whole-group presentations are non-editable for copyright reasons, but move forward via a click as a slide show, with all the rhymes and corresponding sounds grouped together - I often use these at the beginning of the lesson, or a 5-minute pronunciation and speaking break during a lesson, again at very regular intervals. I always encourage students to look carefully at all parts of a particular word, not just the focus sound: for example Hochhaus - the focus sound is au, but the ch sound is equally important. The resource works well for my German students at all stages of learning, from beginner to advanced. We use the card template for students to add corresponding sounds/rhymes that they know, or learn, over time. I allocate 10-15 minutes frequently to focus on pronunciation and sounds - this really does help students develop authentic German pronunciation. Laminate the cards if possible - it’s definitely quite a bit of prep, but it’s well worth it in the longer-term - they are far more learner-friendly, and will remain in excellent condition for years. I’ve included a set without a background, as that is not as expensive to prep as the colour - I do create colour-coded sets for my students when I can, as it helps them to identify different resources, but they are fine without color too. I’ve also included a range of my popular *German *freebies that you may not have seen in my store. The files are non-editable for copyright reasons. They are copyright, all rights reserved.

ENGLISH ESL CONJUNCTIONS & CONNECTIVES LIST

ENGLISH ESL CONJUNCTIONS & CONNECTIVES LIST

(0)
TESOL ESL EFL ENGLISH CONJUNCTIONS & CONNECTIVES Create an instant reference resource for students focusing on high-frequency common English conjunctions and connectives, really giving English language students a flying start with their core target vocab, and enabling them to build an enriched range of language from the very beginning of their learning. I’ve found that the lists are a great learning support resource, and they’re really popular with students too. They work well when students keep them carefully in learning files or folders for current and future reference. They also work well printed double-sided and laminated for small-group work in class. This list is a collection of one hundred common English conjunctions and connectives that students will meet in the advanced beginner into advanced intermediate stages of English learning programmes - it’s an important step in learning is to ensure that students quickly develop a useful vocabulary bank, are able to recognize* English* conjunctions and connectives, and are confident with the meaning of those words in their first and / or home language, so that they can produce more complex and descriptive language and more complex sentences as soon as possible. Students shouldn’t take on the task of learning 100 conjunctions and connectives all at once though - this is more of a longer-term reference resource that students can use to audit their developing English vocabulary and use practically and creatively as they form more complex sentences. It is definitely the case that frequent and regular use in real-world practical contexts is far more successful at embedding vocab into longer-term memory. I encourage my ESL / EFL learners to create accompanying lists corresponding to their first / home languages. There are two backgrounds to choose from - England flag (which looks good as part of a vocabulary display), and black wave - students tell me that this makes vocab lists more visually appealing, which is really useful when they’ve got a lot of vocab to work through and learn. This resource consists of two non-editable files in a zipped format and is offered freely, but please read the Terms of Use carefully, as it is copyright, all rights reserved.

FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES POSTERS SAMPLER

FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES POSTERS FLASHCARDS LES PAYS FRANCOPHONES This sampler features six countries where French is an official language and / or very widely-spoken. There are 12 flashcards / posters showing continent, country, capital city and national flag: each country with two backgrounds to choose from - either French flag or black wave. The full set description is as follows: My students really enjoy seeing the scope of the Francophone world - these posters create an instant introduction to it, and give the learning environment a great French look and feel. At the same time, they promote French as a living language, spoken widely across the world, and featuring in the everyday life of the learning environment. I’ve included countries or regions where a significant number of the population speak French as either their first or second language, such as Viet Nam. Each poster shows the continent, country and capital city in French, and its national flag. Introducing and practising language with flashcards is a really successful directed teaching and learning activity, and these are the ideal size for use as both learning flashcards and all year-round learning display posters. There may be a number of countries and capital cities that students do not know, or are not aware of, so the word wall definitely helps them fully develop their general awareness, knowledge and understanding of Les pays francophones - students are often genuinely amazed at the scope of the French-speaking world - French is spoken on every continent! I’ve used the definite article, as I’ve found that this helps embed the concept of gender in French, and that proper nouns, such as countries, are subject to gender agreement rules too. There are two backgrounds to choose from - French flag or black wave. In total, there are 80 posters / flashcards - 40 with French flag background, and 40 with black wave background. Laminate the posters if you can - they are easier to hang for display, or to use as flashcards for introducing language, and they will last for absolutely years. The full set is here: FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES : 80 POSTERS / FLASHCARDS FEATURING CONTINENT, COUNTRY, CAPITAL CITY AND NATIONAL FLAG https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/french-speaking-countries-posters-flashcards-11682869 The files are non-editable in a zipped format, and are copyright, all rights are reserved.
