Italian Easter Vocabulary, Games and Traditions - KS3 + KS4

Italian Easter Vocabulary, Games and Traditions - KS3 + KS4

Excellent lesson, introducing / re-capping Italian Easter vocabulary and traditions. Fully animated and very attractively presented. Lesson is fully differentiated with 'Challenge' and 'Want support' options for learners as appropriate. LA and HA worksheets included within bundle. All answers provided and support for teacher in 'Notes' section of each slide.Emphasis on fun, independent learning. Students are asked to match Italian Easter vocabulary to the English equivalents to begin, then repeat the words after the teacher (create a team points game from this activity if you wish with actions). Students are then asked to match a phrase to the correct image, using letter cards or by writing a letter on a whiteboard. A reading text then follows, with questions linked to Easter celebrations and traditions in Italy. At the end of the lesson, a Pictionary slide is set up to review learning, and also an Easter Egg Hunt game, whereby if students answer questions correctly, they can choose a square to hunt for 15 golden eggs. Took four hours to make! A huge time saver!

Italian New Year Traditions - KS3 - Worksheet and Answers

Italian New Year Traditions - KS3 - Worksheet and Answers

Excellent resource, outlining in four short paragraphs a series of Italian traditions and customs for New Year's Eve.Document includes a short text, a series of questions in English to consolidate understanding, answers to the questions and helpful vocabulary. The text is adapted from a longer article online (link on worksheet) and can easily be lengthened if not challenging enough for group. I use this with a year 7 and a year 10 Italian class, both several months into their Italian language studies. Acts as a great springboard for further discussion and cultural comparisons, and introduces them to a range of authentic vocabulary. A perfect first lesson back in January, topical and interesting.

Italian Christmas Vocabulary and Traditions - KS3, KS4, KS5 - Whole lesson

Italian Christmas Vocabulary and Traditions - KS3, KS4, KS5 - Whole lesson

Excellent resource, perfect for KS3 and KS4 to introduce / re-cap Italian Christmas vocabulary (una renna, il Babbo Natale and so on) and discuss Christmas and New Year traditions. Also suitable for KS5 as text is quite challenging. Simply remove the Word Bank and allow the students a dictionary for 3-5 words as a class. Fully differentiated with 'Want more', 'Challenge' and 'Want support' options for students, including extension questions linking to reading comprehension and comprehensive A4 page Word Bank, paragraph-by-paragraph to support lower ability learners. Fully animated with all answers and notes under each slide to give overview of each activity. A huge time saver, took a whole afternoon to make! Can be used for one or two lessons depending on ability of group. Lesson begins by asking students to work out Christmas vocabulary. Emphasis on independent learning. A game is then played, either holding up cards or writing the correct letter of the image that corresponds to the given word on a mini-whiteboard. A reading comprehension on Italian Christmas traditions follows. The reading comprehension offers a great opportunity to discuss cultural differences, including food (for example il panettone), the different days in the festive calendar for Italians (8 December, 6 January etc.) and similarities. The reading text is taken from 'Noi parliamo italiano' (link on worksheet). It has been slightly adapted and split into small paragraphs for ease of translation and discussion. The Challenge option asks students to consider traditions at New Year too. Great fun for the students, they're working independently and assimilating cultural knowledge, and really enjoyable to teach!Two games to finish - teacher or student choice! Pictionary on one slide and a Treasure Hunt searching for 15 gold coins and a treasure chest on another. Both designed to link to vocabulary at the start of the lesson!
