Was gibt es denn schöneres, als einer alten Tradition zu folgen und Ostereier zu färben.
Unsere A1 Klasse hatte sehr viel Spaß dabei.
Es wurden auch Osterkarten bemalt und für die gute Arbeit gab es einen kleinen Schokoladenhasen.
Am Samstag feiert die Schule das Osterfest mit vielen traditionellen Osterspielen.
Das Osterei als Symbol
Eier waren in der Fastenzeit nicht zugelassen. Die Eier, die während dieser Zeit gelegt wurden, wurden meist hartgekocht und somit haltbar gemacht. Nach vierzig Tagen konnten am Ostersonntag dann erstmals wieder Eier gegessen werden – was liegt da näher, das Ei zu etwas Besonderem an diesem Tag zu machen.
Ostereier färben & dekorieren – Woher kommt dieser Brauch?
Eine besondere Form der Ostereier-Dekorierung sind sorbische Ostereier. Dies ist eine jahrhundertealte Tradition, die größtenteils im Spreewald, eine Region südlich von Berlin, gepflegt wird. Hierbei werden die Eier mit Wachs verziert, gefärbt und abgeschmolzen. Dieser Vorgang wird, je nach Muster und Bedarf, mehrere Male wiederholt. Das Ergebnis sind einzigartig dekorierte Ostereier, die in Mustervielfalt und Farbenpracht kaum zu überbieten sind.
Ostereier schmecken besser –
klar, das weiß doch jedes Kind.
Sie sind ganz besonders lecker,
weil sie so schön farbig sind.
Was das Huhn nicht will begreifen,
weiß schon längst der Osterhas´ –
färbt das Ei, malt Punkte, Streifen
und versteckt es dann im Gras.
Ostersonntag in der Frühe
kommt er auch bei dir vorbei,
gibst du dir dann etwas Mühe –
findest du dein Osterei.
How to explain the word “Kaffeeklatsch” better, than doing it.
Our students loved to get spoiled in Monday’s class with cake and hot chocolate. Vokabularien: der Teller, die Gabel, die Serviette, der Becher, der Kuchen, die Torte, die Brötchen, der Kakao, Tisch decken, stellen, legen, mögen. Phrase like: “ Ich decke den Tisch,“ „die Serviette wird gefaltet,“ „die Gabel liegt rechts,“ guten Appetit,“ „das schmeckt lecker,“ ich mag die Torte.“
Learning a Language like German can be relevant and practical, not just passive and theoretical. Our Students learn better when they are actively engaged in the learning process. They all love and enjoy this.
The value contributions of the German schools abroad
Eight social value contributions make clear what the German schools abroad do. These value contributions together make up the public value of the schools.
Education “Made in Germany”
High-quality education is one of the core values of German schools abroad. Schools around the world stand for sound knowledge transfer and excellent pedagogical support. Her trademark is the internationally recognized German school qualifications, such as the Abitur. The federal and state governments work together to ensure uniform quality standards; experienced teaching and management staff from Germany ensure their compliance. This enables education “Made in Germany” at a consistently high level.
Encounter of cultures and international understanding
German schools abroad strengthen intercultural exchange. The majority of schools are “encounter schools”. There children and young people from different countries and cultures learn together. Classes are usually multilingual. The schools teach and live cosmopolitanism and thus make an important contribution to international understanding. They raise awareness of study and work opportunities around the world. At the same time they create a close bond with Germany, where many foreign students study after graduation and enter the profession.
Partner of the economy
Many German companies are world leaders in their industries. The German Schools Abroad are an important part of this success story. Whether in industrialized or emerging countries: company employees posted abroad can count on their German children being educated in Germany. The graduates of the schools also have access to highly qualified specialists familiar with the German language and culture. Thus, the German schools abroad can help to solve the shortage of skilled workers in Germany.
Reliable charitable status
The German schools abroad are not profit-oriented schools. As a rule, they are carried by non-profit school associations or foundations. The public-private partnership provides schools with a high degree of economic autonomy, but can charge lower school fees than other international schools. They also offer various scholarship programs. Thus, the German schools abroad are an educational elite that is open to gifted students from all social classes.
Business card for Germany
The German schools abroad teach what Germany stands for. In Germany, they make it possible to experience what Germany is all about: strong education and strong values, such as democracy, equal opportunity and performance orientation. The German schools abroad traditionally support Germany’s foreign cultural and educational policy. In this way, they contribute to sustainable success in competition with other nations (“nation branding”).
Impulse generator and innovator
The German Schools Abroad offer great potential for initiating innovation in the education system – in Germany as well as in the respective home country. Teachers can contribute their experience abroad after returning to Germany, for example when teaching pupils from different cultures. Also in terms of full-day care, multilingualism and integration, the foreign schools can provide valuable impulses.
Reference point for the German community abroad
For Germans living abroad, the German schools abroad are often not only the first address for the education of their children. The schools also provide a place of community to cultivate their own cultural roots. They enable Germans abroad to maintain a bond with Germany and to maintain a German identity. The schools also create networks that ensure rapid access.
German educational ideals
The German Schools Abroad teach more than school knowledge. They make an important contribution worldwide to promote the German language and culture. Children of Germans living abroad speak their language, children from the home country learn it and use it in everyday life. The German schools abroad teach values and knowledge. They promote a sympathetic Germany with convincing educational ideals.
We had a wonderful film screening Saturday afternoon with the support of Daniel Chaffey from the Goethe Institute Los Angeles at our German School campus location in Newport Beach.
“Die Pfefferkörner,” is a movie about a young students group from Hamburg who went on an excursion with the class to the Tiroler mountain region. They overcame a lot of adventures. Motivation is one of the most important factors in determining successful German-language acquisition. The ‘visuality’ of film makes it an invaluable language teaching tool, enabling learners to understand more by interpreting the language in a full visual context. Film assists the learners’ comprehension by enabling them to listen to language exchanges and see such visual supports as facial expressions and gestures simultaneously. These visual clues support the verbal message and provide a focus of attention. For example, a whole film or sequence can be used to practice listening and reading, and as a model for speaking and writing. Given the benefits of using film in the language learning classroom, it is not surprising that we are keen to use film with our students, and with an increasing number we want successfully integrating film into the language-learning syllabus.
Movie is subtitle in English.
To watch movies is an important part of learning German.
At German School campus we offer many events during the school year where students have the opportunity to participate and learn the German language.
