Hier sind wir nun am Playmobilhaus. Und was macht man, wenn man vor der Haustür steht? Man klingelt!

Meine Tochter guckt gerne die Playmobilvideos auf Youtube mit der Playmobil-Familie Hauser. Neulich hat sie sich ein Handy geleihen und selber ein Video gemacht. Zunächst die Intro:

Der fliegende Robert

November 10th, 2019

Meine Tochter ist jetzt in der 4. Klasse. In Deutsch musste sie ein Gedicht aus dem Struweelpeter auswendig lernen. Der fliegende Robert

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.

A presentation

April 5th, 2016

Three years ago, almost to the day, I shared a video of my daughter making a speech on the steps of the high school near our house. For some reason, every time we came home from the park, she’d stop there, go up the steps, and hold a speech. That day, I had the camera […]

Days of the Week

February 22nd, 2016

I never lose an occasion to try and work on basic German vocabulary – which at age 5½ includes a lot of numbers, days of the week, months of the year, you get the idea.

German Mice

October 4th, 2015

A month ago, our 5-year-old daughter started her final preschool year at a new school, one with a program for native speakers of German. She has one hour of German class each day, and the other week she came home with this cute rhyme:
