Ich kann singen

May 23rd, 2019

Neulich wurden wir über die Schule für ein Projekt kontaktiert, für das deutschsprachige Kinder gesucht wurden, die gut singen können. Nach dem Motto wer nicht wagt, der nicht gewinnt, und im Sinne von je mehr Deutsch desto besser haben wir eine “Demo-Tape” aufgenommen und verschickt. Hier singt meine Tochter (fast 9) Hänsel und Gretel

My daughter’s German teacher each year has a project for her grade 3 class: a big notebook in which each of the kids writes a short essay on a subject they know something about. Notebooks from previous years had essays about subjects such as Legolas (from Lord of the Rings), string instruments, or Star Wars. […]

Die Deutschlehrerin meiner Tochter macht mit ihren 3. Klassen jedes Jahr ein Projekt in Form eines großen Heftes, das jedes Kind reihum mit nach Hause nimmt und in das es einen kleinen Aufsatz schreibt zu einem Thema, über das es sich gut auskennt. In Heften aus den Vorjahren wurden unter anderem Star Wars, Streichinstrumente, Legolas […]

The other day, my now 8-year-old daughter was perusing the German TV magazine we’d gotten in Germany, since we receive a number of German channels. She’d already asked for explanations of several film categories that she didn’t know, but when she came across “Das Geschäft mit dem Blut” (The business with the blood), she asked: […]

Mein Exemplar von Eine Woche voller Samstage fällt schon auseinander. Wie auf der ersten Seite zu lesen ist, war es ein Geschenk zu meinem 8. Geburtstag, und das ist nun schon eine ganze Weile her. Meiner Tochter habe ich das Buch zum ersten Mal vorgelesen, als sie gerade sieben war, bevor ich wusste, dass sie […]

Reading “big books”

March 21st, 2018

Last Friday, my daughter and I picked up an order at the German bookstore. The owner, whom we’ve known for a few months, recommended another book my daughter might like. Something with monsters. After reading the first sentence fo teh back cover blurb, my daughter was sold, and I could hardly refuse her a new […]

Work sheet for sight words 1

November 30th, 2017

Now in grade 2, every week my daughter gets a few new sight words to learn in her minority language. When she didn’t seem to understand why she had to learn them, I came up with an idea. I scanned and printed the first page of our illustrated Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone edition […]

Letzten Sonntag hat meine Tochter mich zu einer Theatervorstellung eingeladen. Mich erwartete ein Puppentheater mit der Geschichte “Conni geht zum Zahnarzt”: Autorin: Liane Schneider Illustratorin: Eva Wenzel-Bürger Verlag: Carlsen ISBN: 978-3551085566

I’ve finally read my daughter the first Harry Potter book. I’d been holding back because she wasn’t interested, but I was increasingly worried about spoilers, especially since many of her classmates have older siblings, and they also watch movies in after-school care. But no the time had come at last. A few weeks after we […]

Schietwedder

June 5th, 2017

On Saturday, we were coming back from one of the numerous birthday parties to which my daughter has been invited this year. It had started to rain, and we were waiting for our tram, commenting on the weather, and my daughter concluded with: Schietwedder!”, which is plattdüütsch (my grandma’s mother tongue, a regional language I […]
