GERMAN SPEAKING PROMPTS (2) - 100 CARDS & REFERENCE BOOKLET

GERMAN SPEAKING PROMPTS (2) - 100 CARDS & REFERENCE BOOKLET

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING SPEAKING SKILLS IN GERMAN - QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS WITH A FOCUS ON BEGINNING CONVERSATION & CULTURAL INFORMATIONTALK TIME in GERMAN, SAMMLUNG ZWEI, is a set of 100 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. The prompt cards feature language and structures that your students are likely to meet in both the earlier and more intermediate stages of their GERMAN learning, and including PRESENT and PERFECT TENSE phrases, featuring both HABEN und SEIN. I've classed the resource as suitable for Grades 6-9, but it really does depend on where your students currently are in their GERMAN, and the areas they might need to focus on at specific times during the school year.The REFERENCE BOOKLET includes all the questions and answers written out in full in GERMAN. Students find this a very useful learning support resource and it's also a handy whole-group pronunciation practice and reading-out loud resource. 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.SAMMLUNG ZWEI is a great complementary resource to SAMMLUNG EINS in terms of progression, but it works perfectly well as a standalone resource too. You can also use the cards for a whole range of games and activities, and I've described how to play several you can start with. The prompt cards do take a bit of prep: printing and laminating. Laminating is definitely recommended, as you’ll be able to use the cards for years to come. Print out an appropriate number of question and answer templates (black and white is fine). Students should ideally have their own individual reference booklet that they can keep in their learning folders to use for reference, practice and revision when they need to.SETS 1 & 2, featuring 200 prompt cards with reference booklets, are also available as a combined resource at the special price of $6.00 - have a look at it here:https://www.tes.com/us/teacher-lessons/german-speaking-prompts-1-and-2-200-cards-and-reference-booklets-11567176The resource consists of two non-editable files in a zipped format: the prompt cards and the Reference, Recall & Write booklet.

GERMAN VERBS SETS 1, 2 & 3 - 297 HIGH-FREQUENCY VERBS - GAMES & ACTIVITIES

GERMAN VERBS SETS 1, 2 & 3 - 297 HIGH-FREQUENCY VERBS - GAMES & ACTIVITIES

PERFECT FOR PRACTISING AND REVISING 297 HIGH-FREQUENCY GERMAN VERBS - NEWLY-REVISED & UPDATED RESOURCE COMING SOON!This combined pack of GERMAN VERBS GAMES AND ACTIVITIES SETS 1, 2 AND 3 features 297 high-frequency GERMAN verbs, and offers an interactive and communicative alternative to 'traditional' vocabulary and grammar drilling activities. The games and activities really do help to create a lively and multi-skill language learning environment. The alphabetical GERMAN-English reference lists of all 297 verbs work well as a learning support resource, and also as a whole-group reading out loud pronunciation and warm-up practice. The cards are versatile, and can be used for a number of language learning games; I’ve described several games you can play and ways you can use them in the classroom. They're great for a ready-made quick vocab quiz too! The game card template lets your students put their knowledge of GERMAN verbs to the test as they create quiz cards for each other. There are three differentiated RECALL AND WRITE ACTIVITIES in each booklet:CHILLOUT CHALLENGE 1:Students recall and write all the verbs in English from a GERMAN prompt - the GERMAN verbs are in alphabetical orderCHILLOUT CHALLENGE 2:Students recall and write all the verbs in English from a GERMAN prompt, with the verbs appearing in random, rather than alphabetical orderCHAMPION CHALLENGE:Students recall and write all the verbs in GERMAN from an English prompt - this really does put their knowledge to the test - and is great for practising spelling in GERMAN tooI've classed the pack as suitable for ages 14-18, because it really does depend on when your students began GERMAN, the level they are currently working at, and the level they are aspiring to. The games and activities are particularly useful as students prepare for examinations, and for the transition period between learning stages.The cards take a bit of prep – printing, laminating and cutting out. Laminating is certainly worth the effort and expense - you will be able to re-use the cards for years to come. The REFERENCE, RECALL AND WRITE booklet has 16 pages, and is best photocopied double-sided as a workbook for students to work through either in directed class time, or as independent learning at home.Sets 1, 2 and 3 are also available separately if you prefer, each priced at £3.00. This pack comprises 6 non-editable files: the GAME CARDS x 3 and the REFERENCE, RECALL AND WRITE BOOKLETS x 3 - the other files you can see are preview images to give you an idea of what the resource looks like as a whole.

German Grammar Blockbusters

German Grammar Blockbusters

There are 40 squares on the board. In pairs, the aim is to answer questions and get across the board from left to right uninterrupted. If a team gets an answer wrong the question can be answered by any of the other teams (first to buzz) – if they are correct they get the square and the team that has been blocked will need to start from the beginning again. Players can either work in pairs or can alternate answering questions. Suitable for use on interactive whiteboard for the whole class or to be printed to be used in groups.

GERMAN GCSE SPEAKING EXAM NEW SPEC SUPPORT BOOKLET/WORKBOOK

GERMAN GCSE SPEAKING EXAM NEW SPEC SUPPORT BOOKLET/WORKBOOK

(Newly added note - I've just gone to download the booklet from school, having produced it at home, and the formatting is different, must be a different version of Word. So I've gone through again and amended. If anyone has bought this one and would like the other version, please comment and I'll send it to you. Thanks) I've used the new AQA specimen papers to create this comprehensive booklet which will support GCSE pupils in their learning for the Speaking exams. Although I've used the AQA specimen, I'm sure this would be very usable for Edexcel too. Included on here is the English and example answers for all sections - role-play, photo cards and general conversation, for both higher and foundation, plus the mark scheme and the example cards. There's also a tracker, lots of explanations and a list of high frequency words which can be used for testing. There are two sections for them to practise their own answers and they can fold the papers over for better testing. Students can pair up and take turns to be the examiner and they can check their answers with the mark scheme. I plan to give this to my year 10 class in chunks at a time, so we have continued work on one section at a time as we go through - this booklet will feature heavily in homework I set my year 10s for the next year and a half! (Could also be given as advanced prep to year 9s). This has taken an enormous amount of time so I'd appreciate any feedback. If you spot a mistake, please be gentle ;) but please let me know. I phoned up the exam board and checked that they were happy for me to do this and that I wasn't showing anything I shouldn't, and it's all fine :) Hope it's really useful!
