To begin, I has students review adjectives and adverbs they had learned in German 1. (It was the first day back from Spring Break, so they were pretty rusty.) Then, we watched a great little video from Die Sendung mit der Maus:
This clip lead right into the need for comparatives and superlatives and a foldable:
After labeling the title flap, we labeled the three tabs:
Under the flaps we wrote instructions for each form and created an example:
And now we were ready to use our foldables for some practice:
That was a lot! So, it was a good time for a Sesamstraße video with Bert and Ernie talking about heavy and light.
Students did a self-checking Learning Apps activity based on the video (which I blogged about previously here) so I could assess their understanding.
That was plenty for the first day! Students practiced some more on their own with a worksheet: Vergleiche WS 1
We continued the next class by adding the exceptions to the rule to our foldable:
and some examples for our notes:
Again, students practiced some more on their own with a worksheet: Vergleiche WS 2.

All in all, it was a pretty good first week back from Spring Break!
