GERMAN SPEAKING PRACTICE (2) - 100 PROMPT CARDS & REFERENCE BOOKLET

GERMAN SPEAKING PRACTICE (2) - 100 PROMPT CARDS & REFERENCE BOOKLET

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING SPEAKING SKILLS IN GERMAN - QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS WITH A FOCUS ON BEGINNING CONVERSATION & CULTURAL INFORMATIONPERFECT for speaking practice, and multi-skill language learning, TALK TIME IN GERMAN 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 the earlier stages of their GERMAN learning - I've classed the resource as suitable for ages 11-14, but it really does depend on the age at which your students began their GERMAN learning, and the stage they're currently working at.The reference booklet includes all the questions and answers written out in full. 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. You can also use the prompt cards for a whole range of games, and I've described how to play several games and activities that 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 are available as a combined resource at the special price of £5.00, as are SETS 3 & 4 - have a look at them here:https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/german-speaking-practice-1-and-2-200-prompt-cards-and-reference-booklets-11428118https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/german-speaking-practice-3-and-4-200-prompt-cards-separable-verbs-present-and-perfect-tense-11417814SETS 1-4, with 400 question and answer cards and accompanying reference booklets are here, priced at £9.00:https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/german-speaking-practice-400-prompt-cards-with-reference-booklets-sets-1-4-11610438The resource consists of two non-editable files in a zipped format; please read the TERMS OF USE carefully.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.
