North Dakota Chapter of the
American Association of Teachers of German
Good afternoon Colleagues,
You must be a member to download the booklets. I think I paid a one-time
fee of $15 when I joined 3 years ago.
We made masks to celebrate a holiday which the two cultures have in common;
Carneval. We played Hopscotch, a game that is played by children in the
Americas and Europe. For the last day of summer school, we invited the
parents to a Fest/fiesta. After a parade with masks, we sang "Buenos dias" in
a 4-part round, and Uwe Kind's "Ich bin cool". We danced a salsa line dance to
Juanes' "Mi camisa negra". We also performed "Kopf, Schulter, Knie und Zeh'".
One of the parents made "Day of the Dead" bread and Mexican wedding cookies.
We ate Ritter Sport chocolate, salsa and chips and drank Capri-Suns.
The students received a 3-prong folder with pockets to keep handouts and
booklets. They decorated the front covers with greetings in both languages. I
took a polaroid picture of each student to place on the booklets.
The students enjoyed the program. Several asked if I'd be teaching it next year.
