Help needed with resources

    Hi everyone, I'm returning to teaching after a 5 year break, and my first venture is a German after school club for kids aged 3-7 - they are kids from a dual nationality background, so most of them understand basic German, but never speak it. I need interactive games, songs, activities that are easy and involve basic use of German etc. Fun stuff that I can adapt so that pre-schoolers can do it as well as schoolchildren. For example, for the first lesson I was thinking that they could glue body parts on a sheet to make a person, and the school age kids could write the body parts.

    I'm a bit nervous as I'm used to secondary teaching!

    Teachit Languages German? Lots of useful ideas. PDFs for free, Word docs and audios for a small subscription. I found useful resources for EFL and Spanish. Hope this helps.

    i'd actually make it even more interactive and get them singing
    Knopf, Schulter Knie und Fuß
    thereby encouraging them to 'speak'.
    I've used the http://www.ukgermanconnection.org/kids-uk site for Primary, whuch doesn't have that song but this site does http://www.mamalisa.com/?t=es&p=2606 (Grr won't link) does and loads more at Mama Lisa's World.
