Present Perfect  Journal Prompts
Use this resource when your German students are first learning the present perfect tense (Das Perfect) of German weak verbs.

This activity is designed to lead toward students to creating their own simple sentences in the present perfect and requires them to focus only on weak verbs. This activity is best done after students have been introduced to the present perfect and familiar with how to form a past participle from a present tense infinitive verb.

I call it: Schreibt 4!
I call it Write 4 and assign it as homework. I do it this way so it doesn't seem daunting. Also, having students do this at home or on their own time alone in class helps me to see where they are struggling with the concept of the present perfect.
