Supports Echo 3 Rot double page spread, with thanks to other TES users, a few of whose slides I've adapted. Very interactive, lots of speaking, visuals, reinforces comparative in context of personal characteristics and school, ability to give in depth opinion on school subjects. Bit of a mish mash, but hope it&'s useful!
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!!
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!!!
Series of lessons to teach where you live plus dative endings definite/indefinite. (Have already taught types of house/location). Moves on to rooms in house, what you might do there - very interactive, nice grammar focus on 1st/2nd person verbs too. Enjoy!!! Please feed back. It's nice to have occasionally, you know?...
Lots of group talk / higher level discussion in this lesson exploring christian viewpoint on suffering - who is responsible? Tracing back to Adam and Eve who 'let in' evil via free will etc... Fun video, lots of AfL and group discussion. WITH THANKS to another TES uploader - I nicked a slide off one of your presentations!
Can be amended for ANY topic (or MFL, actually!) Lots of opportunities to give opinions and extend/justify. Build in 'weil' for higher ability if you want. Focus on speaking skills.
Update... got observed with this and had an Outstanding - lots of feedback on the peer assessment and group interactions - you can really show off questioning and Blooms with this lesson... HTH
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!
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.\nI've adapted to make more complex and include funkier adverbs of time, challenging and Edexcel-exam-style friendly.
'Wintergedicht' and 'der erste Schnee&' - dictionary work, tense practice, lots of images and music to listen to, pupils work in groups on several activities, finishing by drafting personal response using subordinate clauses. (Adapted from rosered27, with thanks!) \nPLEASE give feedback on this - don&';t download and run! Not done much of this sort, would be grateful for 'tweak&' ideas!
Lots of scaffolding to encourage personal responses of opinions and advice on healthy eating at breakfast. Lots of focus on subordinate clauses to hit A* material for controlled assessment. Can be used for spoken and written. (Sorry - just edited to say I've missed out an umlaut on gesunder - please add it in!)
Introducing several issues in German which could cause teenage stress. Students have to rate according to 'ist mir (gar nicht) wichtig... and then revises conditional tense. Pupils to brainstorm solutions to suggested problems. Lots of opportunities to speak and write. As usual, feedback welcome... (sorry, re-loaded after spotting typos!)
This is specifically for Health / Drugs / Alcohol German. First presentation reminds / coaches on speaking and handling questions, lots of listening involved. Second presentation fires questions at the students and they have to respond appropriately.
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.
All feedback much appreciated, please...
For good ability students, how to start with subordinate connectives (either weil/wenn) to force VCV construction, including free time activities in perfect and present tense.
Scaffolding to encourage vocab recall, building from present to past tense, at which point I also include weil.
For a top set 7th Grade, already know perfect and weil clauses. Have included weather es ist/es war handout for your ease....
THANKS TO OTHER TES MEMBER, WHOSE RESOURCE I LIFTED IMAGES FROM!
Feedback most gratefully received!
Practises common letter sound / blends for German - can easily be changed for French. It can be HUGELY reduced and done using duplo colour-coded blocks for children. Really good fun and lots of student participation in this. Please rate as I'm becoming obsessed with MFL phonics and would like to develop this whole area...
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.\nSorry - just noticed I have some errors in my spreadsheet - please correct &'BauarbeiterIN&'; and 'Sauer&' - should be lower case &';sauer'.
Quick fire questions that can be adapted - this is suitable as is, for Year 7s who have done some work on the topic of school. \nVery engaging and stimulating, excellent for promoting speaking and thinking skills.\nSet up to play, right click on mouse to freeze and offer a student the question / they can work in pairs and think about how to give the best answer
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.
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.\nTEACHING NOTES WITH EACH SLIDE TO HELP YOU FIND WAY THROUGH.\nFrench teachers - thought you might want to use this basic outline.\nHope this helps out in some way!!!
