BACK TO SCHOOL GERMAN CITIES - FIVE DIFFERENTIATED WORD SEARCHES WITH ANSWER KEY AND TEMPLATE

BACK TO SCHOOL GERMAN CITIES - FIVE DIFFERENTIATED WORD SEARCHES WITH ANSWER KEY AND TEMPLATE

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS AND DISCOVERING MAJOR CITIES IN GERMANY AT THE START OF THE NEW SCHOOL YEAR! WORTRÄTSEL are a fabulous way of encouraging students to engage with the written word in GERMAN, refreshing and reinforcing language as they complete the grids. This set features five differentiated word searches, with each consecutive grid increasing in challenge. Students can tell in which direction the words are written by looking at the arrow key on each grid. There is an answer key for each word search, so that students can check their own or each others’ answers - or use for a little extra help if they need it! There's a reference sheet of all cities included in the searches, which you can share between small groups of students, or give one to each student to stick into their learning workbooks as an all-year-round reference. Use as starters, refreshers, plenaries, pick-me-ups or fun-time fillers at any time during the school year, as well as when you’re discussing the geography of GERMANY. For a real focus on the cities of GERMANY, and to facilitate learner independence, photocopy all the grids as a workbook, and let students simply work their way through. The workbook format is great for home learning activities too. The differentiated word search templates are a great way of getting students to apply their knowledge of GERMAN a little more practically and creatively - they create word searches either individually or in teams to share across the classroom - completing these and the pre-prepared grids against a timer works well too! Encourage students to explore GERMANY a little further, and include what they consider to be major cities that are not already featured. The resource consists of 4 non-editable files. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only. VIELEN DANK UND SCHÖNE REISE!

GERMAN - EUROPE POSTER & QUIZ PACK - AUF DEUTSCH!

GERMAN - EUROPE POSTER & QUIZ PACK - AUF DEUTSCH!

CREATE AN INSTANT AND COMPREHENSIVE INTRODUCTION TO EUROPE IN YOUR CLASSROOM, DEVELOP GEOGRAPHICAL KNOWLEDGE OF EUROPE AND ENHANCE SKILLS IN GERMAN AT THE SAME TIME! 72 POSTERS WITH EUROPEAN COUNTRIES, CAPITAL CITIES & FLAGS 4 QUIZZES, 4 CHALLENGES - 120 MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUIZ CARDS, COUNTRIES & CAPITAL CITIES WITH RECALL & WRITE QUIZZES The posters give your learning environment a great multicultural look and feel, at the same time promoting GERMAN as a living language, featuring in the everyday life of your - and your students’ - classroom. There may be a number of countries and capital cities that students do not know, or are not aware of, so the posters can help students develop their general knowledge and understanding of EUROPEAN GEOGRAPHY. I’ve included a range of islands, such as the FAROE ISLANDS, to extend students’ knowledge of EUROPE a little further, and I’ve also shown some countries, for example ARMENIA, that are often classed as belonging either to EUROPE or to ASIA. I’ve also included two posters for some countries, such as GERMANY, officially known as BUNDESREPUBLIK DEUTSCHLAND - you can choose either the more frequently-used ‘DEUTSCHLAND’ or the ’BUNDESREPUBLIK DEUTSCHLAND’ to display. With the quizzes, students can further develop their knowledge of the geography of Europe in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, using GERMAN as the means of communication. The quizzes are great for listening, speaking, pronunciation and reading out loud, working well as both a small and whole-group team activity. There are four speaking/writing challenges: CHALLENGE 1 prompts for a specific capital city; CHALLENGE 2 prompts for a specific country; CHALLENGE 3 prompts for a capital city in writing; CHALLENGE 4 prompts for a country in writing. The quiz card templates allow students to put their memory to the test in a different way, and to apply their knowledge very practically, as well as engaging with some basic writing in GERMAN: they can create their own set of multiple-choice questions for each other! There is also an alphabetical by country reference list of all countries and capitals, which students find useful to read through before playing. Laminate the cards and reference sheets if you can - you’ll be able to use them for years to come! The posters and quizzes are also available as separate resources, each priced at £4.00. The resource itself comprises 3 non-editable files in a zipped format; please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, and for single-classroom use only. VIELEN DANK UND VIEL SPAß!

GERMAN SPEAKING PRACTICE 1 & 2 - 200 PROMPT CARDS & REFERENCE BOOKLETS

GERMAN SPEAKING PRACTICE 1 & 2 - 200 PROMPT CARDS & REFERENCE BOOKLETS

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING SPEAKING SKILLS IN GERMAN - QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS WITH A FOCUS ON BEGINNING CONVERSATION & CULTURAL INFORMATION Perfect for speaking practice, and multi-skill language learning, this combined pack of TALK TIME IN GERMAN, SETS 1 and 2, provides 200 question and answer prompt cards that give your 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. These sets focus on beginning conversation, with a flavour of cultural and geographical knowledge in Set 2! The prompt cards also feature language and structures that your students are likely to meet in the beginning and more intermediate stages of their GERMAN learning, including a range of tenses. The REFERENCE BOOKLETS include all the questions and answers written out in full in GERMAN. Students find these very useful learning support resources and they're also handy whole-group pronunciation practice and reading-out loud resources. 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. 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. These sets are great complementary resources to other sets in the TALK TIME IN GERMAN series, but work perfectly well as standalone resources too. You can also use the cards for a whole range of games, and I've described how to play several you can start with. The resource consists of four non-editable files in a zipped format: - SET 1 PROMPT CARDS with writing template and REFERENCE BOOKLET - SET 2 PROMPT CARDS with writing template and REFERENCE BOOKLET. I've included a selection of preview images you can scroll through to give you an idea of what the resource looks like as a whole. The sets are also available individually if you prefer, each priced at £3.00. Please read the Terms of Use carefully: this resource is copyright, and for single-classroom use only.

GERMAN STARTER VOCABULARY (1) - HALLOWEEN EDITION - GAMES & ACTIVITIES

GERMAN STARTER VOCABULARY (1) - HALLOWEEN EDITION - GAMES & ACTIVITIES

Have some HALLOWEEN FUN with this set of GERMAN STARTER VOCABULARY GAMES AND ACTIVITIES! It features 99 words and phrases to keep your students happy at HALLOWEEN! The games and activities really do help to create a lively language learning environment, where students can work happily together, with both teacher-led and independent learning activities. I've classed the resource as suitable for ages 7-14, but it really does depend on the age at which your students begin GERMAN, and the stage at which they are currently learning. They definitely take a bit of prep – printing and laminating. Laminating is certainly worth the effort and expense, as you will be able to re-use the cards for many HALLOWEENS to come. They will also take up quite a bit of your colour printer ink – printing in black and white will work equally well, as students can easily identify the GERMAN and ENGLISH cards from the different fonts used for each language. The whole-group practice and quick quiz activity is simply ready to go! The SET 1 WITCHES feature vocabulary in the following word groups: - die Begrüßungen - die Tage der Woche - die Monate des Jahres - die vier Jahreszeiten - die Nummern 0 bis 31 - die Farben - die Länder The resource itself comprises 3 non-editable files: - game cards in both GERMAN and English - whole-group practice activity and quick quiz - whole-group practice activity and quick quiz that you can load on to a tablet or similar device which is really useful for more independent learning in the classroom, or if you're homeschooling I've included a selection of preview images to give you an idea of what the resource looks like as a whole. The SET 1 WITCHES and SET 2 FRANKENSTEINS are also available as a combined mini-pack at the special HALLOWEEN price of £3.00 - you can see it here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/german-starter-vocabulary-1-and-2-halloween-edition-games-and-activities-11395520 Please read the Terms of Use carefully – this resource is copyright, and for single-classroom use only.
