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.

Gaeilge: Éadaí- Is Fearr Liom

Gaeilge: Éadaí- Is Fearr Liom

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. It can be used as a classroom display to help children with their writing. It can be used as a matching activity where children are given a sentence and have to find the matching items or vice versa. 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.

This is a sample template for preparing children in 6th class for the Orals for Entrance Exams. I edited the information for each of the children in my class to suit their individual needs and then printed their copy for them to learn.

Gaeilge: an t-am, cluiche meaitseail

Gaeilge: an t-am, cluiche meaitseail

This resource has 15 times written in Irish and the corresponding times written in digital time. There are a few ways in which this resource can be used once it is printed and laminated. One is for children to have either the time in words or in digital and to walk around silently finding their partner. When everyone is matched up, children can read their times and the rest of the class can tell them if they have the correct partner or not. Another way is for children to read out the time they have and the person with the corresponding time stands up showing their card. The resource can also be printed large and used as a classroom display for children to use as a writing aid when writing about time.

Unjumble sentences/poem/story in Irish- activity and assessment

Unjumble sentences/poem/story in Irish- activity and assessment

age 7+, 2nd class onwards This resource contains 39 pages consisting of four activities all relating to the topic Bia. Each activity is in a different colour font to make it easier to see which pages go together. The first 5 blue pages are simple sentences to unjumble. The next 13 black pages are a story. The next 12 pages are questions and answers about liking/not liking/loving/hating foods. The last 9 purple pages are a poem using the phrases I like/don't like and he/she likes/doesn't like. This resource can be printed out, laminated, cut up and used for group work. The vocabulary can be used in the initial part of the lesson and this can be used as the main part. Children have to place the words in the correct order. Weaker children could have the easier sentences while stronger children could be given the story or poem. Also with the story, the sentences could be handed out in order and children just have to sequence the story. To make it harder, cut up all of the words and children have to make the sentences and then order the story. This is a great activity for children who are not quick at writing. However you could have an extension activity where children write out some of their sentences.
