Cartaí Gaeilge - Irish Language Cards

Cartaí Gaeilge - Irish Language Cards

This resource can used to help encourage students to use classroom language as Gaeilge. It consists of two sides and when printed back to front and laminated these cards can be placed in students lanyards or in their pencils cases and taken out in lessons to encourage target language usage. They have made a huge difference for my students and during an Irish Inspection last year, they were praised by the inspector.

Ceisteanna Poem - Irish Language Questions Poem

Ceisteanna Poem - Irish Language Questions Poem

I did this poem in Primary School to help me remember the Irish language question words. I still teach it today! It's fantastic way to teach what is usually expected to be just rote learned off. Also I generally find with lower level abilities they struggle to remember the question words and this always helps.

Scrúdú Béal - Irish Oral Junior / Leaving Certificate (GCSE)

Scrúdú Béal - Irish Oral Junior / Leaving Certificate (GCSE)

This is a list of questions I have compiled for both my Junior & Leaving Certificate students for the Oral Exam. As an examiner I have used these questions and it helps focus students learning for their exam. At the beginning is a list of phrases they can use to increase their fluency levels, sound more fluent and natural in their speech, all while thinking of an answer! It is very much geared towards Leaving Cert Ordinary level but I have also asked all to Higher Level students as well! There is over 100 basic questions that cover a wide range of topics.

Oíche Shamhna Halloween Irish

Oíche Shamhna Halloween Irish

I use this resource with all my Junior Cert / Cycle classes (U.K. Year 7 - 9) It contains a PowerPoint that starts with a poem about Oíche Shamhna (Halloween) to set the mood. The poem is on the PowerPoint and also on a word document to hand to students. From here the lesson contains all the necessary vocabulary to speak about Oíche Shamhna (Halloween) as Gaeilge. After you have gone through the PowerPoint, there is a word search and also a crossword for students to complete. This is definitely one of my favourite lessons to teach and students love and engage with it!
