GERMAN DAYS MONTHS SEASONS WORD SEARCHES

GERMAN DAYS MONTHS SEASONS WORD SEARCHES

WORTRÄTSEL are a fabulous way of encouraging students to engage with the written word in GERMAN, refreshing and reinforcing language as they complete the grids. This set focuses on the days of the week and months and seasons of the year. I’ve also included several related time nouns, such as the week, the month, the year. There are ten differentiated word searches, with each consecutive grid increasing in challenge. There are TEN word searches in total: 8 GERMAN to ENGLISH grids, where students are prompted with the GERMAN word, and and look for them in GERMAN in the grid. There are also 2 ENGLISH to GERMAN grids, where the prompt words are given in ENGLISH, and students have to find the GERMAN equivalent in the grid. Students are prompted for their name and the date, which is useful for monitoring their work. Having a good bilingual dictionary to hand is also a good idea, as this provides a further focus on developing literacy in both GERMAN and ENGLISH, and facilitates learner independence. You might like to download this reference sheet as a learning support resource: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/german-days-months-seasons-vocabulary-reference-list-11680479 Students find this useful as they work through the grids, and can stick it in their workbooks or file in their learning folders for longer-term reference. There is an answer grid for each word search, so that students can check their own or each others’ answers - or use for little extra help if they need it! Use as starters, refreshers, plenaries or fun-time fillers at any time during the school year, as well as when you’re introducing and learning this particularly vocabulary in GERMAN. The resource consists of two non-editable files in a zipped format. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only. VIELEN DANK UND VIEL SPAß!

I have been a German and English teacher for more than 12 years now. And I love coffee breaks ☕️. Coffee is just great. Over the years I have realized how much my students benefit most from lessons where THEY are the leaders, where THEY are encouraged to be proactive and learn from each other. Handing over the reins to my students doesn’t make me weaker as a teacher. It makes them responsible for their own learning and is highly motivating. I don’t want my students to be sailors. I want them to be CAPTAINS! (And I want coffee!) My teaching resources are all designed to enable students to USE the language. This is why you will always find the communicative approach in my resources - even simple crosswords come with ideas for speaking activities. All of my resources have been tested in class and will be updated regularly. Please rate my resources to help me build a reputation among millions of resources. Thanks for working with me ☺️ Cindy ❤️ Please see my other resources, too: [https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/CindyKuehne]

GERMAN DAYS, MONTHS, SEASONS VOCABULARY REFERENCE LIST

GERMAN DAYS, MONTHS, SEASONS VOCABULARY REFERENCE LIST

PERFECT FOR SUPPORTING LEARNING IN YOUR CLASSROOM! Create an instant reference resource for students focusing on essential GERMAN vocabulary. I've found that the lists work well when students keep them carefully in learning files or folders for current and future reference. They also work well printed double-sided and laminated for small-group work in class. This resource includes days, months and seasons of the year. There are two alphabetical lists - one GERMAN-ENGLISH, and one ENGLISH-GERMAN, as I’ve found that students prefer to have both, particularly at the beginning of a particular topic or theme. These lists are a useful complementary resource to other reference resources in the series, but are a useful standalone resource too. VIEL SPAß BEIM LERNEN!

German GCSE Survival Kit - Pupil Resource

German GCSE Survival Kit - Pupil Resource

This is a guide for any pupil taking GCSE German. I wanted a small 'survival kit' guide that could slot into a pupil's folder or book that they can reference whenever they are attempting a writing task. This is specifically designed for the new GCSE and I wanted to set the bar at a grade 5. Basically, if a pupil follows the guide accurately, they could achieve a 5/6 in the new GCSE. I have printed it as A5. On one side there are easily useable phrases in the present, pas and future, time phrases, connectives, opinions and comparisons. On the reverse is an example Foundation 16 mark question with an exemplar answer. With this is a "foundation checklist" which pupils can also do whenever they are completing a writing. Show your pupils how you can use both sides to ensure a 5 at GCSE. Enjoy!
