Jeopardy/Blitz Game Tenses & GCSE/SG Topics Review - German

Jeopardy/Blitz Game Tenses & GCSE/SG Topics Review - German

I got the template from another teaching website - it can be altered as needed. Macros must be enabled. Click on a box on the first page and you are transported to a page with an English sentence which pupils must translate into German. The more points, the harder the sentence. Click again and the answer appears. Click the return box and you return to the front page, where the original box will disappear to reveal a piece of the picture in the background. Record the points. I find having mixed ability groups all writing the answers on mini-whiteboards is good with this. Note: to change the picture in the background, move one box aside, right click on the picture, click Order and Move to front. Then delete it and put in your new picture, resize it, right click on it - Order - Send to back. Put the box you moved back in place.

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.

Transport: German Vocabulary Card Sort

Transport: German Vocabulary Card Sort

This is a card sort to help students learn words related to transport (30 words in total). This would be a useful task with younger groups or low ability groups. There are three separate files, depending on how you want to present the task.- The 'teacher copy' shows a grid with all items already matched. - The 'student version' is a random layout, print this out and give to students. They can then cut out the items and match them, or stick them into their workbooks.- The 'quick cut' is designed so that you can produce 10 packs of cards quickly and easily using a guillotine. Each page has the same card 10 times over. This allows you to remove words that may not be suitable or needed.

wie bist du im Urlaub gefahren? - means of transport + past tense

wie bist du im Urlaub gefahren? - means of transport + past tense

Aims of the whole power point lesson is to talk about your past holiday with particular emphasis on means of transport. Pupils will memorise this first by repetition and then by a game whereby the need to ask each other "wie bist du gefahren?" ( a sort of quiz trade). The vocab offers an occasion to think about different ways to translate "I went" in German (gefahren, gegangen, geflogen) as a grammar point. The lesson will end with an activity whereby pupils will imagine being a famous person who is interviewed to talk about his/ her last holiday!

die Unterkunft- accommodation STIMMT 2/ ECHO 2

die Unterkunft- accommodation STIMMT 2/ ECHO 2

Pupils will explore vocab related to accommodation firstly by repetition, then with some funny activities aimed at using the vocab in context and using maximum T.L. (ex: wo kann man das Etagenbett finden? --> In einer Jugendherberge etc...). Then it puts the vocab in relation to the past tense and all of this leads to a differentiated translation group race where pupils use prior knowledge of set past tense phrases (ex: ich bin nach Spanien gefahren, das Wetter war warm, Ich habe Fussball gespielt etc...). This can be made into a competition between groups, kids like it!

KS3/4 German Bundle: Present/Perfect practice - housework, pocket money, travel

KS3/4 German Bundle: Present/Perfect practice - housework, pocket money, travel

Sequence of 4-5 lessons building towards an oral assessment. Topics: hobbies, housework, pocket money, travel.Grammar: present tense, perfect tense, modal verbs, separable verbs, reflexive verbs, subordinating conjunctions. Lesson 1) All students receive the 2-page handout as a learning aid/revision of syntactic structures studied. The other document is printed out double-sided onto A4 (card if possible) and cut up so each piece has 5 sentences on one side, and the answers on the other. From here it works as a carousel: Everyone has one card, and has 5 minutes (or less) to translate all five sentences. Then one minute to mark (2 marks per sentence - 1 mark up to the /, 1 mark afterwards - if it's not perfect, no mark). Lesson 2) is a series of tasks explained on the ppt. Lesson 3) Is a lesson targeting the students' propensity to forget all about the perfect when on the spot! Ask me if unclear. Lesson 4) Should also be self-explanatory. Lesson 5) (or perhaps the end of lesson 4) was a mock oral exam, using this as a marking grid.
