Series of lessons to teach where you live plus dative endings definite/indefinite. (Have already taught types of house/location).

(4)
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!

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!

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!

Which tense is being used?

(5)
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.

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...

WEIL/WENN plus DAS WETTER and ACTIVITIES

(6)
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. Sorry if HW task sounds unnatural - included it to force a VCV construction. Handout amended. THANKS TO OTHER TES MEMBER, WHOSE RESOURCE I LIFTED IMAGES FROM! Feedback most gratefully received!

Phonics lesson - highly adaptable

(1)
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...

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'.

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.

thanks to TWO other contributors, whose resources I've combined. LOTS of listen/repeat/chanting and print out the table of French/English to save the pupils writing it out! Lovely chance to introduce Saint-Saens carnival of the animals. Leave slide 25 on freeze with all names of animals from the music, freeze the OHP and then click on the YouTube links - pupils can vote/guess with mini-white-boards which animal is being represented. Second part of ppt much more usual - using vocab from Expo 1! Bon appetit!

(Adapted from rosered27, with thanks!) PLEASE give feedback on this - don&';t download and run! Not done much of this sort, would be grateful for 'tweak&' ideas!
