We just finished our Martin’s Day activities, and I was looking for a lesson to do with the children right before Thanksgiving. I guess a topic of Thanks would have been obvious. But I have been wanting to read a favorite book with the classes, so I decided to give a lesson on feelings.
I have some feeling word posters that I made earlier this year, so I chose three of those to teach: froh (happy), müde (tired), and aufgeregt (excited).
You can download all the feeling posters for FREE here: Gefühle Wortschatz Posters GitA There are 12 feelings in all:
- Angst haben
- schlecht gelaunt
I added froh at the end, because I thought it is an easier word for younger children to say. The file includes:
- pictures with words in just German
- pictures with words in German and English
- just pictures without words
- just words
I also made a coloring page to send home. I always like to give the parents and idea of what the children learned in class.
You can download that for FREE, too! Gefühle Malvorlage – GitA
Okay, so after we talk about those three feelings – and whatever other feelings come up! – I am going to read Kaninchen ist sooo müde by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler (Beltz & Gelberg, 2000). It’s a sweet little lift-the-flap book from the creators of Der Gruffalo.
It ends with the rabbit’s friends singing “Der Mond ist aufgegangen.” So of course, we’ll end class with that song!
One thought on “Gefühle: Today I feel…”
