I originally posted this video when I created it earlier in March. At that time it was meant for a review or a sub lesson in a pinch. Now that students are learning from home, however, it will work nicely as a remote lesson.
This is a great beginner story. However, if my 3rd & 4th graders choose to watch it, here are the instructions for what to do after the story….
Instructions for TWS students (grade 3/4):
- Watch the video (below)
- Write the story into your German Story Listening Log (Get it HERE if you need it!)
- Choose ONE of the following exercises to complete. Take a picture of your completed work or take a video and email it back to me.
- Retell the story to someone in English – take a video or make an audio recording.
- Write a summary of the story in English – take a picture of it or record yourself reading it.
- Draw your favorite scene from the story. Remember to put the story title on it! Take a picture.
- Watch the video again and read along. (See the text below) Take a picture of your log, so we know you heard the story.
* If you feel frustrated while watching the story, because you do not understand, please stop and choose another story!
When I taught this familiar tale using Story Listening last year, I also created some worksheets to go with it. You can find them in this post.
