Synonym and 'word power' - ALL MFLs

(8)
Excellent little activity for students to choose best fit / synonym / missing word from a choice. BRILLIANT and engaging, adapt it for any topic, any level of ability, really fun and students learn a lot from this!! If you choose the right options, you create six packs of cards, if you go wrong you can't close the loop and finish the activity. Super for vocabulary building. Sorry - just noticed I have some errors in my spreadsheet - please correct &'BauarbeiterIN&'; and 'Sauer&' - should be lower case &';sauer'.

Stupidly easy lesson - lots of images for you to use (saves search times!!!). Print out sufficient, give kids gluesticks, colouring pencils and coloured card to cut out and stick onto. Jazz up the greetings inside if you wish - and there you are - easiest last lesson of the year ever - and avoids the HELL of watching half a DVD!!!

Excellent reading/speaking activity 'FOOTBALL'

Excellent reading/speaking activity 'FOOTBALL'

(1)
Fabulous reading / speaking fun!! Adapted from an excellent english resource (from a colleague, I don't know the original, I'm sorry...). This can be adapted for any MFL and ability. Create a text document / print a webpage etc of suitable reading, about three/four paras is good. Pupils have up to 20 mins free access to dictionaries / online dictionaries. Help with idioms or complex language as needed. Then once ready, teams of equal ability (max. 4). One student starts to read and can be 'tackled' after 10 words for the definition / spelling etc. All instructions are in German and English but is completely adaptable. Pupils must shout 'tackle' or 'goal' in TL. Extremely good fun, have a whistle ready as referee!!

Which tense is being used?

GCSE-style Higher level reading comprehension with two short(ish)passages that I have adapted from exam boards - followed by 5 statements that students should mark as being in the past/present/future tense. I've adapted to make more complex and include funkier adverbs of time, challenging and Edexcel-exam-style friendly.

Introduction to Perfect Tense with haben

(1)
Good for higher ability. Lots of thinking and group work to encourage independent learning and make students work out rules for themselves. I've mixed up reg/irreg verbs because my group is good enough to cope with it, also included a seperable verb. Thanks for a couple of graphics to other TES contributors. You will need to give/remind of the full haben forms. Feedback would be appreciated.

Vocabulary boosting self-mark game. All langs

Either use as vocab boost (tailored to your group's requirements) use use as excellent group activity to promote discussion and deep understanding of how gender/case affects def/indefinite/pronouns. Students must make six groups of six cards - it's self marking so perfect consolidation activity after teaching. Biscuits for the winning team are recommended!

Healthy Eating boosting written (mit Sesamstrasse)

(6)
Got rated outstanding on this. Lots of modal verb boosts - opportunity to elicit 'um...zu...&' as well if you&';ve already done this. A bit teacher heavy at the start but lots of stuff to 'warm them up&', plus a fun activity to help them identify how to improve the work. TEACHING NOTES WITH EACH SLIDE TO HELP YOU FIND WAY THROUGH. French teachers - thought you might want to use this basic outline. Hope this helps out in some way!!!

Higher ability but could be differentiated. Students must scan and retain information with time constraints, then deliver back orally and give advice in the conditional based on what they have read. Reading comprehension from Boardworks, higher level content reading, formatted and added to by me. All feedback much appreciated, please...
