Zu Hause sollen die Kinder die KV 10 „Momo“ imBooklet machen, wobei sie eine Kinderbuchfigur beschreiben. Ebenfalls sollen sie eine berühmte Figur ausdenken und sie im Booklet schriftlich beschreiben und dabei natürlich so viele wie möglich Adjektive benutzen.

We poetsen onze interviewtechnieken op ter voorbereiding van een interview met opa of oma op  Skype; onderzoeken wat opa’s en oma’s vroeger deden (want hoe is het leven zonder internet en iPad?), schrijven verhalen en denken na over onze families.

Graag ontvangen we van alle leerlingen familiefoto’s: papa, mama, broers en zussen, tante en ooms, neven en nichten en opa’s en oma’s.
