GERMAN SPEAKING PRACTICE (2) - 50 QUESTION & ANSWER PROMPT CARDS

GERMAN SPEAKING PRACTICE (2) - 50 QUESTION & ANSWER PROMPT CARDS

PERFECT for speaking practice, and multi-skill language learning, TALK TIME in GERMAN, SAMMLUNG ZWEI, is a set of 50 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 ages 11-16, but it really does depend on where your students currently are in their GERMAN. I've also found them useful for beginning lessons in Year 12 (first year of A Level/Highers in the UK). 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 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. TOP TIP: create a student volunteer teaching assistant break/lunchtime rota, with departmental or other whole-school rewards as an incentive. This will save you a lot of time and work, and help your students understand some of what lies behind all the planning and preparation! Simply 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.The resource consists of two non-editable files: the prompt cards and the reference list. The other files you can see are images of individual pages of the resource to give you an idea of what it looks like. Please read the Terms of Use carefully: this resource is copyright, and for single-classroom use only.VIELEN DANK UND VIEL SPAß!

Joseph von Eichendorff - Weihnachten

Joseph von Eichendorff - Weihnachten

This very popular German poem gives pupils the opportunity to understand the spirit of German Christmas whilst revising vocabulary and expressing their thoughts and feelings by painting or creating poetry in German themselves. Cross-curricular links with the Art department will help with Activity 4. This resource has been used in my S4 and Higher classes. There is a presentation of the poem on you tube uploaded by wortlover.
