German Prepositions Wall Chart and Handout

German Prepositions Wall Chart and Handout

(0)
This is a super handy chart (I have it as a poster in my room and also hand out a card stock copy to students) I made to help students remember and correctly use case after prepositions. It includes their definitions and usages in the chart as well. The chart is a Venn Diagram of Dative, Two-Way (Wechsel) and Accusative Prepositions. In the corners of the chart I have article change reminders and underneath I remind them of when to use the dative or accusation of the Two-way preps. Students have actually come back to me from prior years to request another copy because they found it so useful! Format: Power Point so you can modify if you like

Comparatives and Superlatives Presentation Project- German

(0)
Die Steigerungsformen This is a Power Point Presentation that I use during Deutsch Aktuell Level 2 Kapitel 1A to get students actively using comparatives and superlatives in German 2. First I explain the basics of forming the comparative and superlative, then I do this project. The slides walk students through using the word deise/r/s to describe objects of all three genders. The notes wrap up as an example for the project they make using a large sheet of paper, markers and with a partner. They make a poster comparing things from each gender. Then I have students present them to the class, if there is time I have them vote on their favorites. There is a picture of a sample project in the power point for students as well.
