For 4 months now, from August 23rd to December 17th, I have been telling stories to my 4th grade beginners every class (3x a week in a regular week). In 43 classes I have told 50 stories. Stories from countries such as Germany, the Netherlands, France, the US, Canada, China, Italy, Norway, India and Japan; including funny stories, scary stories, folk tales, fables, legends, sagas and more. And here I am sharing the first 50 stories with you with German and English titles and text source if possible. All 50 can be watched here or on my YouTube channel.
Often times I do not tell the story I had planned the next class and make a change last minute. I wanted to tell "Eine Puppe zu Weihnachten" before Christmas, but then some students said, no more sad stories and I decided to skip this one. So for the last of the 50 I was unsure what I wanted to tell and the inspiration came the day before, when we went to a story teller, who told "Die drei Federn". I adapted it and told it today and here we are 50 stories and 1116 minutes in.
On September 3rd PAMS had their annual Anti-Bullying kick off. The teachers, students and staff participated in anti-bullying, pro tolerance activities and watched PSAs made by students in last year's PPA classes.
The videos we did were send in to our anti-bullying force which decided on the best videos of the school. I am proud to announce that my class' video (see prior post) was chosen as one of the best!
The students did a great job and deserve the recognition they received. Tomorrow our little group will be rewarded with pizza and a movie. Good job everyone, it was a lot of fun to make this video with you!!
