Developing language and narrative skills during storytelling

Anastazie and Nina tell a story about knights based on pictures and inspired by a text covered in the previous German lessons. They begin by discussing the protagonists and the setting in Luxembourgish, then practise the text in German, correct mistakes and record their first sentence in German. The girls decide to bring in new characters and notice that they have to change the previous recording in order to ensure coherence.

iTEO offers children the opportunity to negotiate the content of a story, to translanguage, to practise their language skills and to develop narrative skills.
