Good Stories for Learners of German


Each eBook subscription is for 2022-23 school year / ONE teacher / all of their students. All subscriptions expire on July 1, 2023.

Good Stories is a year-long read-aloud literacy module for levels 1-2.

A collection of easy, read-aloud stories for beginners: discuss the pictures in German, ask questions about the pictures and text as you read, ask questions about your students’ lives as you read and connect the text to real life. Enjoy the reading experience. Every two weeks pull out a new read-aloud story. The stories progressively become more complex over the course of the year. Between stories, fill your class with student interviews, picture talks, movie talks, One Word Images, book talks, card talks, and cultural presentations. By the end of the year your students will have developed the literacy skills to read these stories on their own.

The example text below (scroll down) comes from the 9th story in the collection, so it would be read about 18 weeks into the school year. Vocabulary is recycled from story to story so that students develop mastery and learn to read fluently.

Good Stories contains 19 short stories (233 pages not including the glossary) designed for level 1 & 2 students. All stories include a Word Wall for oral retells, illustrations for teacher-led Picture Talks prior to reading, margin notes of less frequent vocabulary, a complete glossary of every word in the book along with a word search tool that makes looking up the words fast and easy, and most stories contain comprehension questions for class discussion.

Learn how to conduct student interviews, picture talks, OWIs and more CI techniques from the CI Master Class.

Also available as part of the 3 book German FVR library pack.

Each eBook subscription is for one teacher and their students. All subscriptions expire on July 1, 2023. The paperback version is also available.
