In addition to weekly Zoom meetings, each Monday, you will receive an email from us with a Dropbox link that gives you access to several files. The class material consists of components that are usually part of our weekly class: a book reading, song singing, worksheets, and/or handicraft work. The videos will be made accessible via Vimeo, and they will require the use of a password, which we will email to you. The password will change from week to week, and the material will be accessible for one week at a time.
Toddler Class (ages 3-4)
This class teaches children to interact with the language by playing games, making crafts, singing songs, and storytelling. These activities supplement our standard German kindergarten activities especially learning the concepts of same and different, size, opposites, left and right, numbers, colors and more. Seasonal topics are also incorporated into the lesson plan.
Primary Class (ages 5-6)
This class teaches children to learn and practice German through playful activities that encourage the kids to communicate in German. The curriculum is filled with activities that encourage language and literacy development in young children, e.g. rhythmic games, playing with syllables and letters. Reading and writing is introduced through games and other supplemental learning materials.
Lower Elementary (ages 7-8)
This class teaches children to focus on conversation, expand their vocabulary and work on Grammar, as well as reading and writing in German. Reading and writing is introduced within the learning topic. Other supplemental learning materials are supporting the reading and writing development as well.
