German - Board Games - Speaking and Listening - Tenses - Hobbies / Free Time / Sports

This resource contains several different games to practise speaking and listening skills in different tenses talking about hobbies, free time and sports. Full instructions are provided about the games and different variations. There are also help sheets provided and templates for dice. Simply print the boards you wish to play with. Laminate or print on to card for increased durability. There are seven or eight different games which can be played so this resource can be re-used with many different classes and for different topics. The games include: Talking about hobbies in the present tense, talking about what you have done in the past tense, talking about what you will do in the future tense, using mixed tenses, adding extra detail to sentences such as (who with, when, how often, where, why?). A powerpoint is also included which introduce all of the present tense phrases. These games are great to complement the topic of hobbies / free time and also any work on tenses. They also work very well as speaking and listening practice for exam revision.

Familie introduction

Familie introduction

Workbook to introduce the topic of family. Includes examples of how to introduce family members, say their name, age and describe their character. Includes explanation of possessive adjectives and conjugations of the verbs haben, sein and heissen. Includes practice for each of the verbs and using possessive adjectives. I usually use it in conjunction with a PowerPoint that shows the grammar and allows students to practice as a class. Would also be great for a lesson cover.

❤️ALLE ERKLÄRBÄR - SPIELE in einem Bundle! ❤️ Deutsch / DAF / German vocabulary game, Wortschatz üben: Körper, Büro, Obst & Gemüse, Verkehr, Wetter

❤️ALLE ERKLÄRBÄR - SPIELE in einem Bundle! ❤️ Ein kommunikatives Spiel zum Erweitern des Wortschatzes, zum Üben von Vokabeln und der Fähigkeit, Begriffe zu erklären. Besonders beim Erlernen einer Fremsprache ist es eine wichtige Fähigkeit, Wörter umschreiben zu können. Damit bleibt der Redefluss erhalten und die Lerner machen weniger Pausen beim Sprechen. Außerdem haben sie weniger Angst, Fehler zu machen oder ein Wort nicht zu kennen. ❤️ Save MONEY / Geld sparen ❤️ Die Wortkarten eignen sich super, um sie zu laminieren und immer wieder zu verwenden. Dadurch sparen Sie Druckkosten und haben immer ein schönes Spiel zur Wiederholung wichtiger Vokabeln. I am glad to share this wonderful game with you. It is great fun for learners to actually use their language skills to describe a word and the others guessing it. ❤️ About me ❤️ Hi there 👋🏼! I´m Cindy from Leipzig, Germany. 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.

GERMAN VERBS WORD SEARCHES

GERMAN VERBS WORD SEARCHES

PERFECT FOR PRACTISING CONJUGATION OF HABEN AND SEIN AND DEVELOPING GERMAN LANGUAGE SKILLS - 10 DIFFERENTIATED WORD SEARCHES WITH ANSWER KEYS! WORTRÄTSEL are a fabulous way of encouraging learners to engage with the written word in GERMAN, refreshing and reinforcing language as they complete the grids. This set focuses on the key verbs HABEN and SEIN, and features ten differentiated word searches, with each consecutive grid increasing in challenge. There are 5 GERMAN to ENGLISH grids, 1-5, where learners are prompted with the GERMAN verbs, and look for them in GERMAN in the grid. For additional consolidation, each grid also features an ENGLISH verb list that they have to complete, really putting their knowledge to the test! There are also 5 ENGLISH to GERMAN grids, where the prompt verbs are given in ENGLISH, and learners have to find the GERMAN equivalent in the grid. For additional consolidation and practice in writing and conjugation in GERMAN, they also complete the GERMAN verb list on each page. The reference sheet, with both verbs conjugated in full, is a useful learning support resource, which students can stick in their workbooks or file in their learning folders for longer-term reference. This also helps to familiarise them with grammatical terminology, such as ‘masculine’, ‘feminine’ and ‘formal’. There is an answer grid for each word search, so that learners can check their own or each others’ answers - or use for a little extra help if they need it! The word searches are in landscape format, as this mirrors the common direction of reading from left to right, facilitating learner engagement with the activity. Use as starters, refreshers, plenaries or fun-time fillers at any time during the school year, as well as when you’re exploring verbs and conjugation in GERMAN. For a real focus on verb conjugation, and to facilitate learner independence, photocopy all the grids as a workbook, and let pupils simply work their way through. The workbook format is great for home learning activities too. Create an answer key booklet - one booklet for small groups of 3 or 4 learners is sufficient. If you create workbooks and answer key booklets, these are best prepared photocopied double-sided and with a double staple on the left-hand side. This format is far more reader, writer and learner-friendly than using a single-staple in the top left-hand corner for example. The resource consists of 3 non-editable files in a zipped format. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser only. VIELEN DANK UND VIEL SPAß BEIM KONJUGIEREN!
