Quiz Quiz Trade Speaking Cards on the Future Tense with hobbies/free time

Quiz Quiz Trade Speaking Cards on the Future Tense with hobbies/free time

A class set of Quiz Quiz Trade cards which practise the future tense with the topic of hobbies/free time activities.The cards include sections in brackets which can be translated for extra challenge. For example, needing to use inversion with 'morgen'.How Quiz Quiz Trade works:Every student gets a card. They get up, and find a partner. They 'quiz' their partner by reading out an English sentence for them to translate. Once both partners have done a translation, they swap cards and find another partner.I like to give students a certain amount of time and for them to see how many conversations they can have in that time.

new GCSE style photo card - Freetime - German

new GCSE style photo card - Freetime - German

In this file there are 5 photo cards on Freetime, based on the new AQA German GCSE. These could be used as a speaking assessment or revision between pupils.Each page has a teacher and a student version of the photo card on it. The student version only shows the first three questions and the teacher one has an additional two. The first question on each photo card prompts the student to describe the photo, and there is always one question where the student has to give an opinion. Furthermore, there is also always at least one question in another tense.I am also selling photo card resources on other topics.

German consolidation booklet (1hr - sport, music, film)

"Consolidation booklet".Topics revised: sport; music; film.Types of activities: writing; gap fill; translation; reading; code breaking (brief); word search.Grammar revised: verb conjugation; adverbs of frequency; comparatives (brief); adjectives; opinions; tenses - past, present, future.Practical application: has been used as a consolidation lesson with Year 9 pupils. Highly customisable but can be used as-is (needs only relevant images adding to complete and this has been clearly labelled).Differentiation: e.g. add verb prompts to activity 1, key words for activities 3 & 4, remove "why" from the questions in activity 4 or ask simpler questions/re-write the text, remove the code-breaker for HALs, amend the questions for activity 7, provide the German words to find for activity 9's word search.

Freetime Writing/ Speaking practice GCSE

Freetime Writing/ Speaking practice GCSE

Writing and Speaking practice for the new GCSE (based on the AQA scheme of work), can be used across any language (in my school we use it for German, French and Spanish).I use this at the end of a module for students to recap and add it to their file for future reference. It prepares them for writing assessments and the general conversation part of the speaking assessment.There are 8 questions for students to answer on the topic FREETIME.I have also included a generic checklist for students to use, to make sure they are using tenses, opinions, justification etc. as well as a blank checklist for teachers/ students to add language specifics/ extra criteria for higher target grades. I am also selling similar placemats for other topics.
