Free German Worksheet Packet on Animals

This year ED is moving beyond colors and numbers in German. I’m trying to build her vocabulary while giving her plenty of time to practice these new words.  I’ve created some packets where she also learns some basic new grammar skills. The first packet is on animals – introducing just six animals.

  1. On the first page we go over over the vocabulary – das Pferd (the horse).
  2. On the second she figures out which article to use (ein, eine, ein) – ein Pferd (a horse)
  3. On the third page she uses kein, keine, kein – kein Pferd (no horse)
  4. The next few pages she makes simple sentence… Hier ist ein… Das ist ein…
These are fairly simple and straight forward, but ED (age 6) is doing well with these.  She also joins in for some of the more advanced listening that her older siblings are doing. (More about that in another post). This packet is 8 pages and it’s free to download.

I’d love to hear from you over on our Homeschool Den Facebook page if you found these useful! Hearing from readers is what makes it worth spending the time to share with the wider world. 🙂

German Conversation Card Sets:

I 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. See more about the German Curriculum we use now in this post.

I made a whole series of Conversation Cards and we are slowly building conversations skills and vocabulary from day-to-day, week-to-week. This is what we will be covering (Click on the links to find out more about each packet):

Be sure to check out our German Store for see all the units and packets we have available!

Last spring I made our first set of German conversation cards. It consisted of a family tree and various family members (brother, sister, mom, dad, aunt, uncle and grandparents). We used these to practice greetings and for basic conversations asking and answering questions like What’s your name? How old are you? Is this your aunt? etc. Wow! Having props absolutely transformed German for us. So this summer, I made a half-dozen more sets.  The kids have made amazing progress with these already.

With the purchase of this bundle you will receive 12 pdf files to download.  Once you pay through Paypal, you will receive an immediate link to download these materials.  You will also received an email from Sendowl (the service I use) with a link that you can click on.  That too will allow you to download the files.  Be sure to check your downloads folder (sometimes the files sneak in there).  And of course, if you have any trouble with your order or if you have any questions be sure to contact me via email liesl at homeschoolden dot com, or via the Contact Form here on the blog. ~Liesl

Remember, these materials are best for teachers/instructors who speak German. The contain basic vocabulary and conversation starter suggestions only. (ie. there’s no scripted back-and-forth dialogue).

      Wow–thank you so much for leaving such a nice note, Kourtney. I’m glad you can use these. We have a number of other packets I’m getting ready for this next year as well… stay tuned for a German packet on the weather, food/eating, and one on clothes (colors and asking the cost of things). Hopefully, those resources will come in handy too. ~Liesl
