MovieTalk: Vom kleinen Maulwurf
A little mole gets out of his hill and it happens, someone pooped on his head! Since his eyes are so bad he doesn't see who did it and goes to fins out by questioning different animals.
The simplified text is available through textivate. Textivate allows students to play different games with the reading. You can find them under Vom kleinen Maulwurf in the public files.

After we did the MovieTalk in my 3rd grade class, we used the new structures "Hast du mir _________ gemacht" and "Ich mache (das) so" by coming up with new stories about animals from the class zoo.
The students picked something else the animals could have "done/made" from a list of pictures and words I supplied: einen Kuchen | die Hausaufgaben | ein Ein | das Bett | Essen | einen Zopf
The students came up with different ways to present their stories, one group did it as a play, others made an e-book or drew their stories and read it to us or recorded their reading.
