Wir verstehen uns gut...manchmal (part 1)

Wir verstehen uns gut...manchmal (part 1)

This is a 2 hours lesson on family members and relationships from the new Stimmt GCSE 9-1. It starts with a very brief revision of family members, it includes relative pronouns in the nominative case and then practice with possessive adjectives in the nominative and accusative case (see grammar worksheets). Pupils will do a running dictation with relationship phrases (ich komme gut mit...aus/ ich kann sie nicht leiden...) and then solve a mystery. Final activity a timed speaking presentation on your family and friends + relationships. Pupils really understood the grammar and the vocab by the end of it.

Cases, adjective endings, prepositions and pronouns - handout

Useful for Year 10-12 This resource is a visual summary of cases (nominative, accusative, dative, genitive) and adjective endings including an example sentence to show the function of each case. 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.

Wie bist du gefahren? (1) - Stimmt 2 module 1 unit 3 (Ich liebe Ferien)

Wie bist du gefahren? (1) - Stimmt 2 module 1 unit 3 (Ich liebe Ferien)

This is a whole lesson power point to be used together with my other resource called "Wie bist du gefahren? (2)- Stimmt 2 unit 1 (Ich liebe Ferien) to occupy 2 lessons on past tense with "sein". In this lesson pupils will be able to explore vocab to say where they went on holidays, how they travelled there and how long they stayed. There is a cards game going with transport vocab which offers great room for differentiation. Then they practise past tense with "sein" and create interviews to their VIPS about their holidays.
