This story is in German. It is geared toward advance students in German 3-5 or a B.1 proficiency.
This is a fun way to teach grammar with a holiday themed short story.
- The 2 page story
- A slide show of main vocabulary
- A vocab and preterit imperfect past (the story is written in the simple past) search and identify student activity
- An explanation of relative pronouns in the slide show (relative pronouns are present in the story)
After this activity if I have time, I have students write another version of the story using relative pronouns and their own story line.
This would take 2- 45 minute periods or about 1.5 -75 minute periods.
