Are you practicing clothing, shopping and colors in German with your kids? These are the worksheets and cards we used for this unit.
This semester, we have daily conversation practice built into our day. I made a whole series of Conversation Cards (1) family tree for greetings and family words; (2) the days of the weeks, months, weather and seasons, (3) Clothing; (4) Where are you from? Nationalities (5) Food and Drink (6) Daily Activities Cards. We use these cards each day as part of our language class. (We also do other things during German time such as sing songs, listen to Bobo Siebenschlafer (affiliate link) stories, use a language CD set, etc.)

Today I wanted to share our Clothing Card Set and explain how we use these. The packet is only useful if you already know the language.
Have students each color in the clothes on the previous pages. Use them for conversation practice. What color is the…
Students can use the blanks under the picture to fill in the German vocabulary. Add in a price, to use those cards in a store scenario. (How much do the boots cost?)
Have the students make up prices (on the previous cards) and use them in a store scenario. Have students ask one another questions such as:
- What is that? That is a (green shirt).
- How much does the red coat cost? (etc.)
- Wieviel kostet es?
- Do you sell…
- Verkaufen Sie….
I printed one set of clothing cards on cardstock to use in conversation practice. I also gave the kids their own copies of these pages. I printed 2 sheets per page for pages 3-6 as you can see in the photo below:
Use the people cards to ask questions and for conversation practice. Ask questions such as…
- What does she look like?
- Is she wearing… Does she wear (glasses)…
- What color is… his/her shirt?
- What do you wear in summer?
- Wie sieht die Oma (der Junge) aus?
- Welche Farbe ist sein T-Shirt?
- Trägt sie… ?
- Was trägt sie im Sommer? im Winter?
I printed these out on card stock and glued them to Popsicle sticks so they could be used again and again.
When we were using these pages, I had the kids color the clothing different colors and had them put a price in Euros (25€). We then used this material to “go shopping.”
This packet also has a number of practice worksheets for learning the vocabulary. Plus, it includes 8 different bingo cards. (Call out the word in German and the student covers the space. The first to cover 5 in a row wins the round!)
Remember, this packet is really only useful if you already know the German language and are helping your students/children learn. This is a supplementary-type material.
