Are you looking for German materials for kids? I found a goldmine!!!! I am SO excited about the German language flashcards and resources I came across.
If anyone is teaching their young ones a foreign language, you might want to check them out. The drawings are cute cartoon style. They offer flashcards/word sheets in German, French, Spanish, Italian and Japanese (a few of these sheets are even in Portuguese and Russian). This MES Flashcards – animals takes you to the animal page, for example. Aren’t they cute?!
Or here is their page with feelings/emotions in German:
Rocket Record has a neat tool for practicing sentence with feelings/emotions in German.
You’ll see the various flags — just click on the flag/language you’re interested and it brings up a free printable page. You have to go through the lists to see whether they are available, but I found SO much that will be useful for us:
- action verbs
- emotions (sad, happy)\and on and on!!!
Don’t forget to grab our free Lebensmittel Packet here:
Here are a few of the links to get you started if you are interested.
Flashcards — Lots of pages of words in the foreign language of your choice.
Make foreign language writing worksheets: select “custom animals worksheets”
cartoon words with blanks — More or less the same as the link above, but another way to get there. This is where I was able to print out the page like in the photo on the right hand side.
And for those of you just learning German — here’s another AMAZING resource… Little German readers (pictured above and below) over at carlscorner — by Cherry Carl. They have cute graphics and simple sentences — perfect for young, beginning German learners!! I plan to use these extensively this year.
carlscorner in general is a great place to browse if you have a child just learning to read (English). She has wonderful resources.
Another resource I have used with the kids is this old German reader: “My Very First German Book.”
This My First Little German Book-Library of Congress link should work, but if not you can try My First Little German Book instead. It’s a bit quaint, but it really worked well with the kids and we’ll pick it back up again this fall.
Don’t forget to check out You Tube for little learning videos such as
