Getting Ready for a Great Week 4 at the German Academy!
Location: Saint Michael’s College
What the German Academy did today: We’re closing in on our final week of the German Academy here at St. Michael’s College! This weekend, the kids enjoyed a Grillfest, hung out at a joint French-German dance, and prepared for the World Expo this week. Today, students returned to regular classes and enjoyed loads of games, interactive activities, and fun moments during their lessons. They’ll take their final STAMP test to assess their progress over our four weeks at MILSA!
In our classrooms…
Level 1 students practiced reading and understanding maps from German culture and American culture. They discussed landmarks, routes, and other location-oriented topics and will continue to do so throughout this week.
In Level 2 classes, today’s can-do statement is “I can identify and name a variety of countries and languages in the world.” They read articles, discussed the material, and reported on the “10 Most Frequently Spoken Languages in the World” for their classmates.
By the end of today, Level 3 students will be able to “describe the geography and natural resources of the target country/countries.” They will discuss natural resources in Germany, acquire new vocabulary, and read about Austria’s salt mine in Hallstatt.
