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!! :) Hope you find something useful! ~Liesl

Note: I have new 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 – German 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:

die Zahlen auf Deutsch – Counting German Numbers Worksheets

die Farben auf Deutsch – Free Colors German Worksheets for Kids

die-farben-auf-deutsch-free-worksheet

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:

GermanWorksheets-from-CollinsLanguage

German Verb Tables: I didn’t actually print these out, but they might come in handy at some point.

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 Siebenschläfer 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. :)

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 our Weather Packet. Who has a headache?  … I have a headache… Who has a runny nose? etc.

German Worksheets and Activities for KidsI have found it difficult to find good German materials and curriculum for kids.  Early on we used a lot of free German worksheets and materials, but then at a certain point the kids were ready for more.  I started making conversation cards and sets for the kids as we worked hard on their speaking abilities. We did a lot of role playing!German-Family-Vocabulary-dieFamilieWe used this family set *every day* during our conversation practice… to talk about the weather, how we’re feeling, where we’re from, what we’re wearing, what we’re up to and on and on! :)

DSC09022I made a whole series of Conversation Cards (scroll down to see pictures of all the worksheets) and we are slowly building conversations skills and vocabulary from day-to-day, week-to-week. This is what we covered (Click on the links to find out more about each packet)

  1. Family tree for greetings and family words (See this post.) – 2 files, approx. 20 pages
  2. The days of the weeks, months, weather and seasons, Winter Words and Sickness activities  – 2 files, approx. 40 pages total
  3. Clothing  – Approx. 25 pages
  4. Also included in the bundle are the Easter/Spring worksheets and bingo cards. (about 10 pages)

You can purchase all of these materials in a bundle scroll down below.

German-Conversation-Card-Set-weather-days-months-seasonsAfter learning the basic words for the months and seasons, we went on to focus on winter words.

german-worksheets-winterworter-winter-wordsThen it made sense to talk about getting sick, having a cold, runny nose, etc.:german-worksheets-krankeiten-schmerzen-sick-hurtHere are some of the activities included in our  Clothing Packet. We did a lot of role playing with these materials as well.
