Free German Worksheets for Kids

This post has some free German worksheets that you can use with beginners.

These are some of the printable materials I used with my kids when they were first learning German.

In this post, I’ve shared some of the resources we used as we reviewed basic words in German: numbers, colors, words around the house, words in a school room, animals, etc. Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom… I kept adding to this post!! ūüôā Hope you find something useful! ~Liesl

Note: I have new (free) German materials at this post as well: German Worksheets for Beginners: There you’ll find free worksheets on school materials, the body, food, time, and more.

Here are a couple of German number worksheets that I made. These are free to download:

die Zahlen von eins bis zwölf РGerman Numbers Worksheets

I added a few more pages, so there are also worksheets 1-20.

German-Numbers-1-to-12-ZahlenAnd here are a few more counting practice pages:

Here is another set of German worksheets for kids on die Farben – with a winter theme. I hope your kids enjoy them! ~Liesl

This was one I made a long time ago about die Farben: die Farben — German Worksheets Colors

die-farbenSome German sheets that go over basic vocabulary from Collins Language. Below I’ve shown the answer sheets. The German worksheets look identical but have blanks for the kids to write in the proper words:

German Verb Tables: I didn’t actually print these out, but they might come in handy at some point. (Sorry, these are no longer available, but here is another list of the top 100 German verbs, a free pdf from German word of the day.)

GermanVerbTables-CollinsLanguageThe BBC has lots of free resources for learning German. The page I printed out was to help facilitate some conversation such as How are you? What’s Your Name, etc. You’ll find more BBC German resources here.

BBC-German1I thought I should also add that we’ll be reading some of the Bobo Siebenschlafer books. (affiliate link) We bought both the book and the audio CD. The kids follow along with the story while we listen to the story on CD. We *loved* the stories in these books and used them for about a year and a half in our German lessons!!

They are pretty simple storylines that are perfect for the level my kids are at. The contents of Bobo Siebenschlafer include:

  • Bei Bobo zu Haus
  • Bobo geht einkaufen
  • Bobo im Zoo
  • Bobo auf dem Spielplatz
  • Bobo ist krank
There’s another book we got called Bobo Siebenschl√§fer ist wieder da. (affiliate link) I managed to find these two books used on Amazon.
UPDATE: We *loved* this series so much, we wound up buying the book/cd for many of the different Bobo Siebenschlafer books. (affiliate link)

You might also be interested in this simple book: Am I small? Bin ich klein? (affiliate link) This book is in both English and in German. The illustrations are cute. ūüôā

bin-ich-klein Below are some simple worksheets I made for my kids when we went over the German verb “sein” (to be)… and reviewing all the pronouns (ich, du, er, sie, es, wir, ihr, Sie, sie).
Free ABC Book for Kids: This is a free download from willkommensabc.de You will see an orange bar that says: Laden Sie hier das kostenlose WillkommensABC herunter/download for free. If gives you different options for downloading (ePub3, Android App, Apple, pdf, etc.) You can also click on the picture below to go straight to the pdf over at willkommensabc.de:

German Worksheets for Beginners: I have new materials at this post as well. Free worksheets on school materials, the body, food, time, and more.

Free German Worksheets: Schulmaterial

german-worksheets-free-schulmaterial

I recently added a Lesespiel game to this file above. The kids have really been enjoying it! It has suggested dialogue on the card, but feel free to change that up or have the kids ask other questions before answering. For example, “Is your book orange?” “Yes. “I found your book!” — in German, of course!

Lesespiel - SchulmaterialThere is a similar game about sickness/being hurt which is in German Bundle 1. Who has a headache? … I have a headache… Who has a runny nose? etc.

We used the cards you see above with the people from our German Bundle 1 below to ask each other — where are you from? Are you from Spain? and things like that in our conversation practice.
