Weather / Das Wetter

Weather / Das Wetter

.In this lesson students learn how to describe the weather in the present tense (you can easily adapt this). You may wish to substitute some of the tasks with listening and reading exercises from a textbook, however there should be enough material to cover a full lesson without. Contents: Do-now activity: guess meaning of words using pictures Learning objectives Vocabulary introduction with pictures and words Beat the teacher with pictures Speaking: Wie ist das Wetter? (Partner and/or whole class questioning) Grammar: Weather adjectives and verbs - prevent students from always writing 'es ist’ Translation: ideal for mini-whiteboards but can be done in exercise books Writing: Describe today’s weather Splat: Can be done one half of room against other or boys vs girls. Teacher describes weather in German and students touch correct picture.

Das Wetter (The Weather) German Speaking and Listening - board game and presentation

Das Wetter (The Weather) German Speaking and Listening - board game and presentation

This is a speaking and listening game on the topic of ‘Das Wetter’. Students can play in groups of 2 to 4 players. Simply print Slide 4 (the board) for each group. Dice are also needed, although a template is included on slide 5. Full instructions are provided, including ideas of how the game can be extended or supported. Pupils take it in turns to move around the board, asking and answering questions about the weather. A fun way of practising speaking and listening skills as well as weather vocabulary. There are also help sheets provided for students to refer to, and slides which introduce the weather phrases - these, along with the game, would be enough for a full lesson on weather.

I´m Cindy from Leipzig, Germany. I have been a German and English teacher for more than 12 years now. And I love coffee breaks ☕️. Coffee is just great. Over the years I have realized how much my students benefit most from lessons where THEY are the leaders, where THEY are encouraged to be proactive and learn from each other. Handing over the reins to my students doesn’t make me weaker as a teacher. It makes them responsible for their own learning and is highly motivating. I don’t want my students to be sailors. I want them to be CAPTAINS! (And I want coffee!) My teaching resources are all designed to enable students to USE the language. This is why you will always find the communicative approach in my resources - even simple crosswords come with ideas for speaking activities. All of my resources have been tested in class and will be updated regularly. Please rate my resources to help me build a reputation among millions of resources. Thanks for working with me ☺️ Cindy ❤️ Please see my other resources, too: [https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/CindyKuehne]

GCSE German AQA General Conversation Theme 2 - Questions and answers

This resource is an example of the General Conversation (Theme 2) for GCSE German. This book is ideal to show students what is expected of them in the General Conversation. Information and questions are colour-coded for foundation and higher level students. Key questions (those using tenses) are starred so that students know which questions they must learn to maximise their marks. The chilli icon is used to document challenge and super challenge questions, for those students attempting to secure higher level grades such as grade 9. Some questions are multiple-choice, so that questions can be tailored to students’ personalities, circumstances and abilities. There is an answer booklet attached, showing students the type of vocabulary needed for each answer.

GERMAN IDIOMS: HELPING YOU TOWARDS A GCSE A*

GERMAN IDIOMS: HELPING YOU TOWARDS A GCSE A*

This resource has been produced with GCSE potential A* candidates in mind. There are altogether 48 idioms, but if the students can become confident in handling a handful of them, they are going to impress the examiners like me. the resource includes an initial matching up exercise, where guess work will come into play, then a complete list with examples of each. students then have the opportunity to practice and extend their vocabulary through tasks such as reading a definition and supplying the correct idiom, putting in the missing word, and replacing a rather humdrum phrase with a more impressive idiom. I hope they will engage your students. The tasks should prove challenging and enjoyable.

KS3/4 German: Writing about an Exchange and the Environment (includes verb guide!)

KS3/4 German: Writing about an Exchange and the Environment (includes verb guide!)

Originally conceived to encourage students to improve on an existing piece of writing, this Writing Challenge could be used as a motivational competition (with prizes for the best entries), as a guided writing task in-lesson or an independent homework task. Maturer classes may even be able to cope with this as a cover lesson. The task: write a letter home about your (fictional) German exchange experience - your German exchange partner is Detlev, whose family are incredibly environmentally friendly (no heating, no electricity(!)). This challenge allows all students to create an end-product by choosing one of the three on offer (article, interview, poster). On the back is a colour-coded guide to verb forms and word order (present tense, modal/future structure, and verb-comma-verb/subordination, which could be used separately, or indeed throughout a GCSE course, as a reference tool.

German Trip (Rhineland)  Past Tense Writing Frame

German Trip (Rhineland) Past Tense Writing Frame

This is a document I used to help students write about our recent trip to the Rhineland, although it could be adapted for other areas. It could either be used while on the trip to help students write a diary entry each evening, or after the trip. I get them to choose one of the days which they then write up on a post card to send home.

Weather: German Vocabulary Card Sort

Weather: German Vocabulary Card Sort

This is a card sort to help students learn words related to weather (40 words in total). This would be a useful task with younger groups or low ability groups. There are three separate files, depending on how you want to present the task. - The 'teacher copy' shows a grid with all items already matched. - The 'student version' is a random layout, print this out and give to students. They can then cut out the items and match them, or stick them into their workbooks. - The 'quick cut' is designed so that you can produce 10 packs of cards quickly and easily using a guillotine. Each page has the same card 10 times over. This allows you to remove words that may not be suitable or needed.

die Unterkunft- accommodation STIMMT 2/ ECHO 2

die Unterkunft- accommodation STIMMT 2/ ECHO 2

Pupils will explore vocab related to accommodation firstly by repetition, then with some funny activities aimed at using the vocab in context and using maximum T.L. (ex: wo kann man das Etagenbett finden? --> In einer Jugendherberge etc...). Then it puts the vocab in relation to the past tense and all of this leads to a differentiated translation group race where pupils use prior knowledge of set past tense phrases (ex: ich bin nach Spanien gefahren, das Wetter war warm, Ich habe Fussball gespielt etc...). This can be made into a competition between groups, kids like it!
