GERMAN and ENGLISH game cards, with all the words and phrases to use in a variety of games and activities - I’ve suggested a range of games and activities that have worked well for me. The game card template encourages your students to apply their developing knowledge of GERMAN practically and creatively.
REFERENCE, RECALL & WRITE WORKBOOK - all the words and phrases are listed GERMAN-ENGLISH in language categories. There are 3 differentiated recall challenges to help your students really practise and review the vocabulary:
CHALLENGE ONE: students write from memory all the words and phrases in ENGLISH from a GERMAN prompt
CHALLENGE TWO: students write from memory all the words and phrases in GERMAN from an ENGLISH prompt - again, all the words and phrases are in their language category
CHALLENGE THREE: all the words and phrases appear in random order, and switch from GERMAN to ENGLISH at each question - this really does put students’ memories to the test!
Encourage students to complete the NOTES AND NEXT STEPS template, which helps them to reflect on their learning, and to set progress targets.
