Zonenkinder Introduction (Kapitel 1) AQA Option

Zonenkinder Introduction (Kapitel 1) AQA Option

One of the AQA KS5 German choices for Literature. - As I couldn't find much on the book per se, only some material around the topic, I have done something like an introduction to the story, made easier by the fact that I grew up in Eastern Germany (bit older than Hensel) and studied in Leipzig when everything happened. PPT contains some of the keywords& pictures, and I tried to stick to a small amount of phrases on the vocab sheet. Plan is to start at the end of year 12, before summer break.

Worksheet on Timetables and Opinions on School Subjects

Worksheet on Timetables and Opinions on School Subjects

Students need to extract information from a written text and a timetable in order to answer a set of true or false questions. There is also a translation activity as an extension (this is why there are lines under each statement). The worksheet would be a good scaffolding activity to support students with describing their own timetables.

QQT Cards - German Speaking Activity on Digital Time

QQT Cards - German Speaking Activity on Digital Time

A class set of Quiz Quiz Trade cards to practise digital time in German.How Quiz Quiz Trade works:Every student gets a card. They get up and find a partner. They then 'quiz' their partner by reading out an English sentence for them to translate. Once both partners have done a translation, they swap cards and find another partner. The answer is on the cards so students can check that they are right. I like to give students a certain amount of time and for them to see how many conversations they can have in that time.

GERMAN SPEAKING PROMPTS - 100 CARDS & REFERENCE BOOKLET (4) - SEPARABLE VERBS PERFECT TENSE

PERFECT FOR PRACTICING SEPARABLE VERBS (1) IN THE PERFECT TENSE AND DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS IN GERMAN!PERFECT for speaking practice, and multi-skill language learning, TALK TIME IN GERMAN is a set of 100 question and answer prompt cards that give your students structured talk opportunities, and will also get them listening, reading and writing. They’re ideal for independent learning, and perfect for pair and small-group work. The prompt cards also feature language and structures that your students are likely to meet in both earlier and more intermediate stages of their GERMAN learning, including modal verbs, word order, case and prepositions governed by the accusative and dative. I've classed the resource as suitable for Grades 8-12, as it really does depend on the age at which your students began their GERMAN learning, and the stage they're currently working at.The reference booklet includes all the questions and answers written out in full. Students use the NOTES AND NEXT STEPS template to reflect on their learning, and think about what they might reasonably do to progress in their learning.The question and answer writing templates give students the opportunity to apply their GERMAN very practically, as they create both questions and answers for each other. This is a great team activity too. You can also use the prompt cards for a whole range of games, and I've described how to play several games and activities that you can start with. The prompt cards do take a bit of prep: printing and laminating. Laminating is definitely recommended, as you’ll be able to use the cards for years to come. Students should ideally have their own individual reference booklet that they can keep in their learning folders to use for reference, practice and revision when they need to.SETS 1 & 2 are available as a combined resource at the special price of $6.00, as are SETS 3 & 4 - have a look at them here:https://www.tes.com/us/teacher-lessons/german-speaking-prompts-200-cards-and-reference-booklets-1-and-2-11567176https://www.tes.com/us/teacher-lessons/german-speaking-prompts-200-cards-and-reference-booklets-3-and-4-separable-verbs-present-perfect-tense-11613711SETS 1-4, with 400 question and answer cards and accompanying reference booklets are here, priced at $11.00:https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/german-speaking-practice-400-prompt-cards-with-reference-booklets-sets-1-4-11610438The resource consists of two non-editable files in a zipped format; please read the TERMS OF USE carefully.VIELEN DANK UND VIEL SPAß!
