German - What can you do in town?

German - What can you do in town?

To begin with, pupils are introduced to the new vocab of saying what there is to do in town. Then, pupils raise their hands, according to the activity you mention (right, left or both hands). After this, pupils choose A, B or C to translate (the options are not shown until they choose). It makes translation a little more fun! Finally, pupils translate the sentences about what you can do in town.

Musik zum Thema Grammatik für Fortgeschrittene SET 1

Musik zum Thema Grammatik für Fortgeschrittene SET 1

Enrich instruction by using my Musik zum Thema Grammatik für Fortgeschrittene sets. Have upper level students at A.2 level listen to authentic songs and then follow a set of text codes to analyze 5 of the grammatical structures used within the lryics. Students get to listen, analyze, build vocabulary and see their grammatical knowledge grow. In my classroom I introduce the song to the class and let them listen to it. Then I have them work on the grammatical analysis, following the text codes. Many of the concepts are familiar to them and some are new. When they come across new concepts I encourage them to look online to try and determine more information about that concept. This empowers them to use the web for a research purpose. The analysis worksheet included asks students to list the coded word/s, identify their grammatical name and give an additional example of the grammatical topic not listed in the song. This forces them to extend beyond what is just listed in the song and helps them to grow their grammatical competence. Each set has 3 German songs by recent artists of various genres. The sets include a PowerPoint slide show that includes the songs embedded, a song analysis worksheet, and the song lyrics with various grammatical concepts coded. The PowerPoint is editable for customization and I also provide the set in PDF form to share with students as well. Songs in this set: Set 1: Du bist die Sonne - Die Drogen (modals, accusative pronouns, coordinating conjunctions, accusative prepositions, da-compound) Erkläre mir die Liebe - Philipp Poisel (interrogatives, accusative pronouns, accusative prepositions, dative pronouns, dative prepositions) Krieger des Lichts- Silbermond (subordinating conjunctions, accusative pronouns, genitive, imperative, infinitive construction) More Song Sets Coming Soon in My Store! PLEASE FOLLOW ME FOR PRODUCT UPDATES. DANKE!
