I am such a morning person! I'm so much more creative in the morning than any other time of the day.
On Saturday afternoon I was trying to do some planning and creating for my next unit in German 2 - Kleidung Clothing. Since I didn't teach German 2 last year, it's been two years since I last taught this topic. We have a new textbook now, so I was looking through what I already have and seeing what fits in with our book and what I need. I got stuff done, but it was a slow slog.
Then, I woke up early this morning, made myself a cup of tea, and the ideas started flowing.
I introduced colors last year in German 1, but students were never tested on them, and I have a feeling they need a bit of a review. I used the above picture in German 1, but I like it and think it will make a good review. Who doesn't like coloring on a Monday morning?
Several months ago I found a great free worksheet at GrundschulAtelier for beginning clothing vocabulary and colors:
I modified it a bit to work for my students and came up with this:
Since I just introduced clothing vocabulary for the first time on Thursday, I think this will work well to get students using and learning both colors and clothing in class Monday.
