GERMAN NUMBERS 0-31 CHALLENGE CARDS

GERMAN NUMBERS 0-31 CHALLENGE CARDS

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING GERMAN LANGUAGE SKILLS AS WELL AS PRACTISING AND REVISING GERMAN NUMBERS 0-31 - 36 CHALLENGE CARDS WITH RECORDING SHEET AND FULL ANSWER KEY! GERMAN NUMBERS 0-31 CHALLENGE CARDS really do help to create a lively language learning environment. Students can develop, embed, reinforce and refresh their knowledge of GERMAN numbers in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, independently of the teacher. They have a bonus multi-skill focus on listening, speaking, pronunciation, reading and spelling. They’re great for helping students familiarise themselves with, and develop competence in, speaking, reading, writing and spelling numbers in GERMAN. The cards are useful not only when you’re focusing on Numbers 0-31, but also as an all-year-round starter, plenary and general ‘pick-me-up’ activity, as the goal is not simply to learn how to count in GERMAN, but also to enjoy working with GERMAN, and to feel confident about doing so. The questions range in complexity and challenge, and are great for honing numeracy skills too - especially if calculators are not allowed! The resource comprises the following 3 files: Set of 36 cards, 4 per A4 (8.5 x 11) paper. Print, laminate and cut out. Depending on how long you want the activity to last for, choose a particular number of cards per small group of students, and place them in a tin, bowl or small box so that students can easily select a card, and then replace at the end of the activity. You can simply place all the cards in the bowl/box and let students work their way through, either in a single lesson, or across a series of lessons - I’ve found 15-20 minutes across several lessons can work really well. Students do need to remember to file their recording sheets carefully! 2-page answer recording sheet. Best printed double-sided. 2-page answer key, again best printed double-sided, and laminated for longevity. One answer key for each small group is sufficient. Students find this reference sheet really useful - download it for free here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/german-numbers-0-31-reference-sheets-11756058 Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - this resource is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only.

Two role plays aimed at beginners, designed for two people. Each person gets instructions in English on what to say in German. The other person has the answer on their half of the sheets so students should be able to support each other without teacher intervention. Each role play includes questions for both students. The vocabulary from both role-plays is based on the first Module of Stimmt 1. Role play one covers name, age, and where you live. Role play two covers characters, interests and things they have.

The pack includes 21 non-editable files: ONE & TWO: 40 clock-face bingo 12-square grids, 4 per page (10 pages).

You can also cut out the grids, and place them in a small bowl or similar object on tables. Students select grids randomly from the bowl. Depending on the size of your class, you should have several winners per game! You might prefer to laminate the grids - students can use wipe-clean pens, and you can recycle the grids many times. THREE: 40 GERMAN time phrase bingo 12-square grids, 4 per page (10 pages). FOUR: 40 English time phrase bingo 12-square grids, 4 per page (10 pages).

Using the SILENT BINGO files, show each slide at varying speeds. Students cross off the corresponding phrase or clock. These are really versatile, with a range of challenges, and depending on which skills you want to focus on - for example, show the pictures only using GERMAN words grids for vocab recall & reading practice; show the English phrases using GERMAN phrase grids for mini-translation practice as well as vocab recall/reading; show the GERMAN phrases using English phrase grids for reading & vocab recall - students have to be completely silent - it’s a really popular way of playing bingo! There are 5 different games of each type: clock face, GERMAN phrases, English phrases. These games are designed for players to cross off all the words or pictures on their grids in order to win the game. These games focus on o’clock and half past the hour. The ’half past’ can be a particularly tricky concept for learners, so lots of practice and a focus on that is really useful. All the grids are designed for students to cross off all the squares in order to win.
