First, we conjugated the verb haben. Then, we took a trip down memory lane to elementary school when students learned parts of speech. Almost everyone remembered that the topic of a sentence is called the subject and the action in the sentence is the verb. Yes! Students were more uncertain on what to call the thing that receives the action of the verb, but the term direct object did ring a bell for some of them.
This information went into the foldable:
Next up was recording the definite articles (words for the) for masculine, feminine, neuter, and plural in both the nominative and accusative cases. Color with purpose!
Finally, we wrote some example sentences.
We did a second foldable for indefinite articles (a/an) the next day, following the same format.
What I would change: The foldable is a little small. I did this on purpose so that I could fit 4 to a page and save a bit of paper, but I think it might be better to just increase the size and have 2 per page. Next year...
