This is the children's seventh German lesson and the children will learn the vocabulary for eleven items of clothing. The lesson will follow a similar pattern to last week with 'sag mir nach', questioning and going through items of clothing. The children will combine this new vocabulary with revision of colours and sentences/questions such as 'that is', 'is that' and 'what colour is that?' The children will practise this vocabulary in structures such as 'Das Kartenspiel', learning a traditional song and by playing 'Zusammen', which this week will be in the form of an exciting 'who wants to be a millionaire' style quiz.
Power point presentation
Hand outs which the children can take home for revision
Kartenspiel cards - these cards include colours which will help them this lesson
Communicate LO and SC
Slide 3 - Starter activity - Das Kartenspiel - revision of colours
'Sag mir nach' the praise phrases on slide 3. 'Prima' at the bottom is new.
Explain and model das Kartenspiel:
Slide 4 - Questions and answers vocabulary
'Sag mir nach' (repeat after me) the vocabulary on the slide. As we learnt over the past two weeks with parts of the body, point out that in German there are different words for 'the', depending on the gender of the noun. We are now going to learn the vocabulary for items of clothing
Slides 5 - 15 - Items of clothing
Model saying the items of clothing using 'sag mir nach'. As you go, ask random children 'Was ist das' und 'Welche Farbe ist das' whilst pointing at the slide or items of clothing on yourself or in the classroom. Children to reply with 'das ist ...'
Extension - You could ask some children 'Ist das ....' and say something different to the slide or item of clothing you are pointing at. The children would then have to say 'nein, das ist ....'
With their partners, the children use their sheets (with clothing pictures) and their own clothes to ask their partners the questions just modelled. The partner answers. Encourage the children to use the 'Lob' words if their partner answers correctly.
Slide 16 - Mein Hut, der hat, drei Ecken
Model the song, suggested actions and show the translation. Then sing the song together as a class.
Inter-table competition - the children practise for 3 minutes and then perform with their group in front of the class, making up their own actions if they wish. The winning table wins a reward (and a 'Lieblingsantwort' or 'Das war gut' celebration). Alternatively you could use lollipop sticks to choose individuals to sing the song instead of groups. The chosen child can select a partner to join them if they wish.
This song will be used in future 'Zeit für Deutsch' sessions.
Plenary - Slides 17 - 36 - Wer wird Millionär?
'Zusammen' activity. Children to work with a partner using a wipe board and pen but today we will using the 'who wants a be a millionaire' style slides.
*Extension - Get the children to write the German before any of the options appear.
*Note - I feel it helps learning to let the children have a 'break' after question 3 so that they can look and learn from their sheets. Go back to the quiz after 2 minutes 'break'.
