Comprehensive worksheet on the topic of health, focusing on practising and producing the verb structure 'second-final' (i.e. future, conditional and modal verbs + infinitive).
Because we all like to talk about what we WILL/WOULD/COULD/SHOULD do!! Great for GCSE classes. Clearly demonstrated using 'sentence-builders', which can also be used for revision, or to create longer pieces of writing.
Three worksheets for the topic of jobs.
1) Sheet focusing on masculine/feminine forms of jobs.
2) Sheet focusing on the PRONUNCIATION of these jobs.
3) Sheet encouraging speaking practice - Carroll diagram (basically a grid) can be used for e.g. Os and Xs or battleships and other pairwork or whole class activities to practice language at word- or sentence-level.
A really solid introduction to the passive voice (and another of my successful interview lessons)! Warning: many example sentences are based on recipes for e.g. Lebkuchen/Gluehwein - do not teach this on an empty stomach!
There is enough for two lessons here, or perhaps one lesson and a homework.
First lesson: focus is on UNDERSTANDING the passive voice, in the present tense only. Agents using 'von' are also touched upon. (.ppt and handout 1)
Second lesson: the focus turns now to using the passive in a range of tenses: present, imperfect and perfect. This worksheet provides systematic practice in the style of a real-life situation.
Lesson introducing rooms in the house, including a guessing-game for the starter, a match-up, a reading activity, battleships for speaking practice (handout version is already available on TES), a longer reading activity and an ongoing dictionary task as an extension activity. Successfully used as an interview lesson!
Series of lessons guiding pupils through Expo 3 Rouge Module 3, covering:
1. parts of the body and 'avoir mal a' construction
2. other symptoms using 'etre' and 'avoir'
3. reflexive verbs in the past tense
4. negative sandwiches
5. phrases that take infinitives
I made this for my top set, but it was also useful for middle sets!
A task to write a holiday complaint letter with step-by-step instructions to create a good answer.
Used as an opportunity for students to write their first controlled-asessment style piece of writing, with plenty of support and room for extending with adverbial phrases (on separate sheet). I hope you have as much fun reading/teaching it as I did making it up!
Fun independent activity for KS4 German. In lessons we covered jobs, personality words, and modal verbs: then students created a flowchart quiz using questions about personality and future plans (I used lucidchart.com to create mine!). They loved bringing in their flowcharts and doing each other's!
Resources for a lesson with a lower set on protecting the environment and phrases with 'zu&'.
Lots of room for fun (with phrases such as &';I refuse to take the bus!') and extension by coordinating sentences (&'...but I promise to protect the environment!&';).
Includes Diamond 9 activity (with support for discussing in German), guess my sentence activity, battleships, and Os and Xs. (Another successful interview lesson!)
When I taught this topic (Module 3 from Studio 1) I used a sentence builder at some point in each lesson to demonstrate the relevant language point. For revision I put them all together to remind the students of their learning. Great for a variety of games: Guess my sentence, translation into French, hands-down questioning (say an English sentence, turn the projector off after 3 seconds, and pupils give an answer from memory), the beep game ('beep' one element out - student guesses).
Group writing task which could last for two lessons. Used as the concluding task for a series of lessons on work experience, pupils must produce a full report about their imaginary work experience placement using the task sheets, then pupils assess each other's reports and find words/phrases which will be useful to them!
