Gesang, Rhythmen und Reime - German Chants    SHORT SAMPLE MUSIC Sound bites

Gesang, Rhythmen und Reime - German Chants SHORT SAMPLE MUSIC Sound bites

Gesang, Rhythmen und Reime - German Chants, Rhythms and Rhymes for the German Classroom is a collection of purposeful chants and rhythms set to all types of music, both the traditional and the modern music of which present- day Germans are so fond. Because these chants are not actually sung, all students, even those who can't carry a tune, can participate. These chants are better described as being musically accompanied rhythmic recitations. Music and rhythm are very powerful tools for language learning. What is learned with music is remembered for hours and hours after the class and for many years after the course. There are many ways to use music in the class. I have suggested a few ways to use these chants, but there are many other ways not mentioned here. You or your students or may come up with many more ideas as time goes on. One easy way is to use the cloze activities as a musical dictation both before the song is learned (or as it is) then again after. Recite or sing. You may also use pictures for many of these songs. The packet includes instructions, table of contents for the whole series, the script, a cloze script (fill-in-the-blanks) , questions and pictures for flashcards to be used as a review worksheet or as individual flashcards. German musical rap-like chants (with MP3 and exercises) packets from this collection are: Gut und Schlecht - German Musical Chant About Expressions With “Haben” Im Zoo - German Musical Chant About the Conversational Past + “war” In der Schule – German Musical Chant About School Objects and Imperatives In der Stadt - German Musical Chant About Town Vocabulary and Prepositions Brigitta – German Musical Chant About Romance, Dative and Accusative Preps Das Wetter - German Musical Chant About Weather Der erste Schultag - German Musical Chant About School Vocab and Imperatives Der Körper - German Musical Chant About the Body and Imperatives Die Familie - German Musical Chant About Family and Genitive Case Klamottten - German Musical Chant About Clothing and Adjectives Klassenausflug - German Musical Chant About Trip Vocabulary, Pronouns and Case Klatschen - German Musical Chant About Modals Mein Haus - German Musical Chant About House and Rooms Vocabulary Mein Tag - German Musical Chant About Reflexive Personal Verbs Obstsalat - German Musical Chant About Fruit, “to Like” Expressions Spass mit Verben – Very Cool German Musical Chant Conjugating ANY Verb ANY Tense Was, Wann und Wie - German Musical Chant Comparing All Verb Forms Woher kommst du? - German Musical Chant About Countries, Capitals, Nationalities Mein Beruf- German Musical Chant Teaching Professions

La Virgen de Guadalupe La Leyenda in Two Levels

La Virgen de Guadalupe La Leyenda in Two Levels

The story of Juan Diego and the apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe is known by all Mexicans, Mexican – Americans , Latin Americans and many U.S. Catholics. A very large majority of Mexicans revere the Virgin of Guadalupe, whether or not they are Catholic. Because she is so important to the people of Mexico, it is wise to teach about this legend. I use the word “legend” because whether or not we believe in the veracity of her apparition and subsequent placement of her image on Juan Diego’s tilma, we must be religiously impartial in the public schools.This packet of La Virgin de Guadalupe contains readings (in Spanish) in two levels with pictures to help in comprehension. Level one is written in the present tense and has cognates when possible to facilitate understanding. The exercises are true and false and information gathering (full sentence writing suggested). There is also a fill-in-the-blank exercise. Level two is written in the past tense, using preterite, imperfect and a few past perfects. The vocabulary is kept at a low intermediate level, too. The exercises are information gathering questions and practice forming the present perfect. There is a black and white coloring sheet of the apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe.
