The German Worksheet Packet on die Familie has been updated and is now over 40+ pages! This packet will help kids to learn the basic German vocabulary about the family. There are matching worksheets, translation from German to English and English to German, der/die/das worksheets, and worksheets on plurals. Plus, there are matching cards (picture to German) and a bingo game with 6 bingo cards.
German Worksheets for Kids: I wanted my pages to be very visual for the kids because my kids were 5, 7 and 9 when they started learning German, so these worksheets include a lot of pictures. I had a hard time finding the kinds of materials I needed/wanted for my elementary-age kids, so I put together my own packets. 🙂
These are some of the new pages I added to the German Unit on die Familie:
- grandmother – die Oma
- grandfather – der Opa
- grandparents – die Großeltern
- mother – die Mutter
- father – der Vater
- parents – die Eltern
- brother – der Bruder
- sister – die Schwester
- baby – das Baby
- aunt – die Tante
- uncle – der Onkel
- (male) cousin – der Cousin
- (female) cousin – die Cousine
- siblings – die Geschwister
- grandson – der Enkel
- grandaughter – die Enkelin
- son – der Sohn
- daughter – die Tochter
- my – mein, meine, mein
- my (more than one) – meine
- child/children–das Kind/die Kinder
Recently, I also added in a set of matching cards and bingo cards to help kids learn this basic vocabulary about die Familie.
My kids were quite little when we started to learn German, so I wanted to put together a packet that was very visual for them. Once the kids had all the family terms down, we moved on to names and ages.
They named their own family (see the picture below) and we did a lot of conversation practice – asking each other questions like… What’s the father’s name? Wie heißt der Vater? or What’s the sister’s name? Wie heißt die Schwester?
We also used this family set to practice questions such as How old is the mother? Wie alt ist die Mutter? or Wie alt ist die Oma? … That’s what DD is doing in the picture below. 🙂
I also had some sheets with one of the family trees labeled with names. The kids had to answer the questions that went with that family tree.
Note: I have quite a number of other German packets available. You can also buy this packet as part of a bundle of three German Conversation Packets (along with a set on weather-seasons-months and another on clothing) for $6.50. For more details scroll below!

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.
