Complete week 26, Monday, arithmetic questions, check answers and post on Seesaw:
You will be practising numbers, colours and the question “Magst du ….?” (Do you like ….?) with various topics and you will be able to practise your speaking skills. You will need: a piece of A4 paper, coloured pens and scissors.
- Watch this video on how to make a “chatterbox”. Follow the instructions on how to make it. You will be writing slightly different things inside it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpsmrQdN0Do
- Colour in the four squares each with a different colour (like on the video) and also write in German the colour (eg, rot, blau, gelb, grün, weiß, braun, schwarz, lila, rosa).
- On the small triangles inside (like on the video) write any 8 numbers between 1 and 30 and then write the German words for those numbers as well. Use the numbers sheet from Monday 18th May to help you spell them.
- Underneath the triangles, when you lift them up you are going to write some questions (not like on the video this time). Questions must all start with “Magst du…?” which as you know, means, “Do you like…?”.
Here are some example questions to help get you started but you can use any food / drink / school subjects / activities words in German:
Magst du Orangen? (Do you like oranges?)
Magst du Vanilleeis? (Do you like vanilla ice cream?)
Magst du ….? Schwimmen (swimming), Tanzen (dancing), Gymnastik (gymnastics), Fußball (football)
Magst du ….? Englisch, Mathe, Musik, Sport
Magst du ….? Apfelsaft (apple juice), Tee (tea), Kaffee (coffee), Wasser (water)
5. How to play:
Ask a sibling or adult to choose a colour – say it in German. Spell out the colour whilst opening the chatterbox to the top and side.
Now ask your partner to choose a number (in German). Open out the chatterbox to the top and side and count up to the number they have chosen IN GERMAN.
When you finish counting, your partner has to choose another number in German. Open the flap under that number and read out the question underneath. Your partner can answer Ja (yes) or Nein (no) or they could say Ja das ist lecker (Yes that is delicious) / Ja das macht Spaß (Yes that is fun) or Nein das ist nicht so gut (No that is not good) – or other opinions you have learnt in German.
Finally just for fun: Here is a short clip of the panda cubs that were born in September at Berlin Zoo. This shows the first time they venture out.
If you enjoyed this, take a virtual tour of Berlin Zoo here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvxDJx8ku3k and write down all the animals you see. How many of the animals can you say in German? Use an online dictionary or google translate to find out any you don’t know.
