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.

Mirror Vocab - Health

Mirror Vocab - Health

A vocab learning activity using health vocab based on a popular technique called mirroring. Students read 3 items at a time to their partner with definitions and repeat twice. Mixing up the order of words is effective. The partner repeats back parrot-fashion. After 8 mins or so, swap roles. Do a vocab test at the end and see the results!

Essen / Food - Vocab list trainer

Essen / Food - Vocab list trainer

A vocabulary list of food items (mostly cognates) originally designed for a SEND German class. Students can fold over the words to do look, cover, write, say, check activities. It's a Word document so easily adaptable if you wanted to add in the genders (we did this by highlighting on the sheet as the class remembered better with colours).

It also contains prepositions and some tips on how to remember prepositions, cases and endings more easily. The second page includes relative (including a comparison with the 'der-word table to see the similarities and differences), personal and possessive pronouns on one page. I asked my students to print two copies (one in A4 and one in A3) in color and stick one in their exercise books and the other one on the door / wall of their room so that they can always see it.

Memory and Recall tasks for GCSE German

Memory and Recall tasks for GCSE German

A booklet of (homework?) tasks which students can use once the unit of work is complete to help them revisit vocabulary and phrases to help keep them fresh. The tasks could be given straight after completion of a unit of work or for example at the start of Year 11 to review work covered in Year 10. This unit is based on the me, my friends and family unit of work which my students study in Year 10. I will give these tasks to them over the next 6 weeks as revision home works and then reissue the booklet in Year 11 for further revision. The tasks are best printed out as an A5 stapled booklet.
