Students in the 3rd grade will hear, participate and learn different stories about farm animals, professions and different German legends. They will recite poems, sing, act out dialogues and have short conversations around family members, clothing items, types of transportation and rooms of the house. They will begin to name nouns with their articles, verbs and some adjectives, give negations in sentences and practice prepositional directions in German. We will begin to work with the alphabet orally (spelling vocabulary words, our name, others names' ect.) to directly and consciously prepare for writing and reading the language in the 4th grade. And because it is good for them and they love it--we will jump rope!
The 3rd graders first German block begins in mid-October and they will have it for 5-6 weeks. Our World Language program is taught in blocks where grades 1,3,5 and 7 are learning Spanish while grades 2, 4, 6 and 8 are learning German. Every 5-6 weeks we alternate which means each grade sees both German and Spanish three times a year in blocks of 5-6 weeks and within each week the students have four classes a week for 40 minutes to an hour.
