Question Sentences/Fragesätze


Job is the one asking many questions in the Old Testament.  Veronika picked a few of those questions and wrote them in her main lesson book.

Hiob ist derjenige im Alten Testament, der viele Fragen stellt.  Deshalb hat Veronika sich dort  Fragen ausgesucht und sie in ihr Epochenheft geschrieben.

Flora had ballet today.  She seems to be in a loud ballet class because she told me today that only the children that behave well all class long received stickers at the end.  She was among the sticker receiving children which made her happy.  This morning I read The Biggest Pumpkin Ever to her.  She truly enjoyed it.

Flora hatte heute Ballett.  Ihre Ballettklasse scheint aus lauter unruhigen Kindern zu bestehen.  Heute haben nur die Kinder, die sich gut benommen haben, einen Aufkleber am Ende bekommen.  Flora gehörte dazu und hat sich darüber gefreut.  Heute morgen haben wir zusammen ein Bilderbuch über einen Riesenkürbis und Mäuse gelesen.  Das hat ihr gut gefallen. 

Charlotte had her ballet friend over.  Her friend is helping to teach Flora's ballet class and every Wednesday, after her teaching, comes home with Flora to spend some time with Charlotte.  In the evenings, Miriam, Charlotte, Jonathan, and Charlotte's friend leave for ballet class together.  Charlotte and I are discussing the book Lilies of the Field right now.  We are planning on watching the movie once we are done with the book.  

Charlotte hatte heute wie jeden Mittwoch Besuch von ihrer Ballettfreundin.  Ihre Freundin hilft mit, Floras Ballettklasse zu unterrichten und kommt nach Unterrichtsende mit Flora nach Hause.  Charlotte freut sich immer über diesen Besuch.  Abends gehen dann die beiden zusammen mit Jonathan und Miriam zum Ballett.  Wir sprechen im Moment auch über das Buch Lilien auf dem Felde.  Es gibt auch einen Film dazu, den wir sehen wollen, wenn wir das Buch zu Ende haben.       

Miriam classified all musical instruments into the four categories of plucking, hitting, blowing, and bowing.  She put a list into her main lesson book.

Miriam hat Musikinstrumente in die vier Kategorien Zupfen, Schlagen, Blasen und Streichen eingeordnetet.  Dazu hat sie Listen in ihr Heft geschrieben.   





Jonathan has to read Beowulf for his upcoming Center for Lit class.  Jonathan muß Beowulf für seine online Literaturklasse lesen.

And I managed to borrow a microscope for him!  He will have to collect pond water and examine it under the microscope for his biology class.

Und ich habe für ihn ein Mikroskop ausgeliehen!  Er muß für Biologie Teich-wasser untersuchen.  




And I took a picture of the moon tonight, right before I left to teach my intermediate student.

Und ich habe den Mond heute abend fotografiert, kurz bevor ich wieder zum College mußte, um meine Studentin im dritten Deutschsemester zu unterrichten.

  1. La bella luna!!!!! I think lesson books are so lovely. Please tell Veronika that I like her whale very much :) And Miriam's list is very informative and beautiful :)

    The Lilies of the Field looks very good, Eva. I think I would like to read this with Chanda and then watch the movie . . Is it because I like Sidney Poitier so much????!

    1. I will let her know. She is my "fire" child. Each main lesson book entry starts with an "explosion." She gets a fit because she thinks she cannot do it and cries loudly. Or she does it and hates her entry (her words). I let the storm pass and encourage her to try it or try it again. It helps her when people like her work.

      I think Miriam is enjoying the physics she is doing right now and she loves the Greek myths we are reading.

      I think Chanda would enjoy the book. I think Charlotte did. I had never heard of it before, but I have read bits and pieces and the characters are very interesting. It also has some German in it which is great.
