Gaeilge: Mo Litriú agus Feidhmeanna Teanga don Seachtain

Gaeilge: Mo Litriú agus Feidhmeanna Teanga don Seachtain

This template is useful if you’re not using a spelling workbook for Irish. I printed out 10-15 copies per person, one for each week of the terms, and stapled them together. Each week I picked out 16 words from the work we were going to be covering in class, including verbs. The children wrote these in to their booklets each Monday. They had four words to learn per night and there is also place for them to draw a picture for each word to show they understand the meaning. On the back of the spelling list, there is a page for writing in the key ‘feidhmeanna teanga’ for each week as well.

This resource contains phrases about which preferences for items of clothing and footwear. It focuses on the use of the phrase, “Is fearr liom…” and on clothes. It can be used in a few ways.

This can be done as a whole class where multiples of the clothing and footwear are printed out and the whole class look for their items at the same time. It can be done as groups where one person from each group goes at a time. It can also be used on the white-board if magnetic tape is put onto the sentences and pictures and children come up to the board to match.

Irish Gaelic - Fun Way To Learn Bundle

Are you learning Irish Gaelic? Are you looking for a fun way to learn Irish Gaelic? I have developed a way to learn different languages based on my experience as an ESL teacher. This pack has 57 different settings for students to talk about in Irish Gaelic. The worksheets themselves are in English and the students do need to translate the places and objects they see into Irish Gaelic. At the end of the session, the students can play a fun game of word bingo to show they have mastered that day's vocabulary. Try it, it is a lot of fun for everyone!
