World Book Day in German for Years 9 - 11

World Book Day in German for Years 9 - 11

I designed this resource for an able Year 9 group, but you could use it for GCSE groups too. You could start by reading out the book descriptions on page 3, and pupils guess the book you are describing. Then pupils have to match up the images of the book covers, authors and main characters. Then they use the sheet to compose their own book review. It’s differentiated, so all can manage phrases from the yellow box, and some will also manage ones from the green. You might want to give out the text of the book descriptions you started with, you may prefer not to. A nice plenary with an able group is to get them reading out their book reviews, and pupils guess which book they are describing. Hope it’s useful!

Flashcards - all AQA GCSE German vocabulary in flashcard form with English translations

Flashcards - all AQA GCSE German vocabulary in flashcard form with English translations

These pdf flashcard files are organized into generic vocabulary from the beginning of the vocabulary section in the new AQA specification for German GCSE, as well as Foundation and Higher topics. Rather than the restrictive double-sided flashcard, these are intended to be cut out with their translation attached to them in the first instance. The students or the teacher can then fold the translation behind the vocabulary so that students can test themselves. (The English is upside down intentionally so that it is harder for students to read through the flashcards if you have printed them on paper. In this manner, the vocabulary cards can stand like mini tents on the table and students on either side of the table could complete with each other to see how many words they can correctly translate into the opposite language. The other student is able to easily check the answer by flipping it up the right way. Students then have the opportunity to cut off the translation, mix the topic up and match up the English translations to the German words. all English translations or all German vocabulary could also be removed from the pile. This could lead to students testing themselves on whether or not they truly know the vocabulary required for the new GCSE. Key: +I = inversion +S = subordination +A = Accusative +D = Dative +G = Genitive
