Grammar Poems

This was an idea to get the students thinking about nouns, verbs and adjectives.  I also thought it would give them a sense of achievement to write a poem in German.  The first step was to write a poem myself that they could adapt.  I came up with this:

Ein Substantiv ist eine Sache/ein Ding

wie …, … oder ….

Ein Verb ist etwas, das wir machen

wie …, … oder ….

mit Adjektiven beschreibe ich

wie …, … oder ….

The students had to complete the poem so that it rhymed.  A challenge was to find words with appropriate numbers of syllables.  There was a real sense of achievement by the end!
