Vocabulary Test tracker

Vocabulary Test tracker

(4)
This is a vocabulary mark book for test results (we use it for grammar and vocabulary tests but it can be used for any subject) which can monitor test results, retests and ranks the class for each test to encourage competition. I have included instructions on how to use the tracker. The file is protected to stop people from erasing formulae but the password is MFL. If you come up with a great update - do let me know. I know it isn't perfect!

This is a fast paced activity reviewing the perfect tense conjugation of German verbs. There are over 100 slides and five games to play. Slides give the English and pupils have ten seconds to find the German translation. The presentation is easily adaptable and can be used either as a whole lesson or as several short activities within a lesson. You can come back to it as often as you like. It helps pupils to perfect their translation of verbs in preparation for exams and helps boost confidence when speaking.
