Whole lesson based on the Studio 1 unit 'mes reves' on the structure 'je voudrais' + infinitive. One activity is omitted due to copyright - page and exercise reference is included for Studio 1 textbook. Features a sentence-builder and a multiple choice quiz to finish.
Lesson and worksheet linked with Echo 3, chapter 2, unit 3, on the topic of school reports. The worksheet is a starter activity (based on types of words); the presentation contains a starter on 'denn/weil', and the lesson leads towards students' writing their own school reports for their teachers using comparisons. Potentially fun!
A series of three lessons for both higher and lower ability classes, in line with the Echo 3 SoW. Includes worksheet on the structure 'es gibt' with places in town and accusative adjective endings, and a roleplay set in a tourist office. Great for year 9!
2 lessons: in lesson 1, students learn 9 different shops. This lesson is full of AfL as the students set their own targets for learning these phrases during the lesson. In lesson 2, students use these phrases in sentences to describe what you buy where. Again, lots of practice and AfL techniques with a thumbs-up/down quiz to finish. Great for year 8.
Sequence of 4-5 lessons building towards an oral assessment.
Topics: hobbies, housework, pocket money, travel.
Grammar: present tense, perfect tense, modal verbs, separable verbs, reflexive verbs, subordinating conjunctions.
Lesson 1) All students receive the 2-page handout as a learning aid/revision of syntactic structures studied. The other document is printed out double-sided onto A4 (card if possible) and cut up so each piece has 5 sentences on one side, and the answers on the other. From here it works as a carousel: Everyone has one card, and has 5 minutes (or less) to translate all five sentences. Then one minute to mark (2 marks per sentence - 1 mark up to the /, 1 mark afterwards - if it's not perfect, no mark).
Lesson 2) is a series of tasks explained on the ppt.
Lesson 3) Is a lesson targeting the students' propensity to forget all about the perfect when on the spot! Ask me if unclear.
Lesson 4) Should also be self-explanatory.
Lesson 5) (or perhaps the end of lesson 4) was a mock oral exam, using this as a marking grid.
A fun stand-alone lesson leading to students' being able to describe a football match. Based on a game between Germany and Costa Rica in the last world cup, but would still work now. Fits well into free-time topic, and a fun stand-alone lesson for sporty classes. Perfect for Euro '16!
2 full lessons at both higher (Rot) and foundation (Grün) level, based on Echo 3 Rot/Grün - about describing famous people, giving reasons why you like/don't like them (using 'weil'). The worksheet can be used to support in the second lesson.
A double-sided worksheet (file makes two A5 double-sided sheets) revising family members, adverbs of frequency and adjectives describing personality. Sentence-builders demonstrate how to compare family members - ends with a fairly amusing opportunity to say things like 'my mum is funnier than your mum!'; And a double-sided lesson of sentence builders describing your own family. Both suitable for lower sets.
1) A useful exercise for oral practice/revision to encourage high-quality answers - one question per tense and per topic, with challenging vocabulary, connectives etc.. For high-achievers!
2) A comprehensive revision resource - a grid of translation sentences on all topics and a range of complex grammar points. 'Answers & Hints' document gives an intermediary support sheet with vocabulary and hints, followed by a sheet of the answers.
A game/activity used to revise the topic of health. Full instructions included - print cards onto paper/card and put one set in an envelope (as many sets as you need for the class to work in pairs). Similar to taboo, but in reverse. Fun for advanced students.
A series of lessons slotted into the topic of school for introducing and practising using the perfect and imperfect tenses in German. The poem is a fantastic activity that works like magic when you translate between the perfect and imperfect - suddenly it rhymes! (will be clear when you see it) The .ppt contains help with vocabulary, and the other .ppt is a lesson which links in with the Edexcel textbook text on Kalib/Angola.
Originally an observed lesson (hence the lesson plan) introducing verb conjugation in the present tense to beginners of German. Introduces 7 key verbs through a story, using nouns they've already learnt for phonics (Rachel Hawkes' set of 16 nouns, also featured in Stimmt!1). Plus comprehension exercises and creation of a verb table.
Used after one term of German: assesses regular and key irregular verb conjugations in the present tense, modal verbs, the future and conditional, 'weil', frequency adverbs. With a handy marking grid to show students which areas they did least well on and what that means for their next steps.
Introducing regular verb patterns and certain irregular verbs (using weak/strong imagery), sentence builders to include adverbs of frequency in sentences, worksheet to practice conjugating verbs in tables, and an almost-identical assessment.
A really useful double-sided handout to help German beginners ask people out, refuse/accept, give reasons why/why not. Grammar: modal verbs, future tense, conditional, subordination. Uses the ever-popular sentence- builder style of presenting multiple options for sentences. Great fun.
