German worksheets for kids

Luckily there are many new types of material but unfortunately for most of them you will have to pay! Sometimes I found myself looking for simple but accurate worksheets I can use in my lessons but they can be very hard to find.
In addition, some resources in the internet require you to register and pay a fee. This is very annoying, especially if you need worksheets for your students on a regular basis.

First of all,  Bumblebee's printouts are free! You also don't have to set up an account.
Simply click on 'Click here' and a pdf version of your chosen worksheet opens up.
These German worksheets for kids can be used for children between the ages of 3-10 years. There are some which are also suitable for older children.

Some require your students to write words or sentences down, others are only about matching pictures or words with pictures. Others are very simple and straightforward, others are a little trickier.

Bumblebee's worksheets

Everybody likes playing games from time to time. The memory games are training especially one thing, your student's memory and his or her knowledge of the German vocabulary!If you are trying to improve your students vocabulary, then memory games are the right thing for you. All worksheets are suitable for beginners and advanced students. Enhance your students vocabulary through on-sheet exercises and activities. Play a game or read short texts.

Learning German should be fun and engaging. But enjoyable lessons require a little bit of preparation and creativity. Lessons have to be as engaging and enjoyable as possible.  One way of improving your lessons is to use our worksheets. Bumblebee German's colorful drawings should help to get absorbed into the creative world of language learning.

For this reason, shape your lessons around Bumblebee German's videos and printouts.When you are teaching children a foreign language, it is very important to your students speak! Let them be proud  and let them show off their skills. Speaking is an essential part of the language learning process. Let your students be passionate about language learning. Worksheets and videos should be an addition to your lessons. It should not be the general focus.

Furthermore, kids are very quick to notice good but also bad attitudes. That's why it is important to be a positive and happy teacher! Good teachers should encourage their students not hinder them! Please do not have too many expectations! Language learning is a process, your kids won't be able to learn a language in only a few weeks or months.Learning is always linked to collaboration. Have German conversations right from the beginning.

In my opinion, you shouldn't hesitate to speak German to your new students. Language learning enables your students to learn a foreign language but also find out more about another culture. Learning another language only generates positive outcomes! It increases your students ability to concentrate and improves his or her self-confidence.

Finally, it is also very likely that early foreign language learning develops a life-long interest in other cultures and foreign languages. Often this adds to a more positive outlook in life. Not only do children learn a language but they also learn how languages work and why communication is so important. Learning for life!
