Class Description

The class is taught in German only. Students will enjoy a well-structured lesson plan with guided play and circle time, where each week another topic will be introduced and discussed. A weekly craft project is part of the lesson plan to train hand-eye-coordination as well. Every other week the children will visit the German library, where they can find age-appropriate books and games. Creating their own lanterns for the famous lantern walk at school in November is one of the favorites as well as the visit from “Nikolaus” in December. In February the students get to dress up to celebrate “Fasching/Karneval” and parade dancing through the school. All this is part of bringing the German culture closer to the children.

Regular visits to the extensive school library with German-language books, games, audio books, CDs and DVDs for all age groups, are part of the lesson plan, The newest additions are “Tonies” to improve listening and comprehension skills.
