Gesang, Rhythmen und Reime - German Chants, Rhythms and Rhymes for the German Classroom is a collection of purposeful chants and rhythms set to all types of music, both the traditional and the modern music of which present- day Germans are so fond. Because these chants are not actually sung, all students, even those who can't carry a tune, can participate. These chants are better described as being musically accompanied rhythmic recitations. Music and rhythm are very powerful tools for language learning. What is learned with music is remembered for hours and hours after the class and for many years after the course. There are many ways to use music in the class. I have suggested a few ways to use these chants, but there are many other ways not mentioned here. You or your students or may come up with many more ideas as time goes on. One easy way is to use the cloze activities as a musical dictation both before the song is learned (or as it is) then again after. Recite or sing. You may also use pictures for many of these songs.
The packet includes instructions, table of contents for the whole series, the script, a cloze script (fill-in-the-blanks) , questions and pictures for flashcards to be used as a review worksheet or as individual flashcards.
