German as a Foreign Language 

Kindergarten - Grade 2

Foreign language instruction should start as early as possible in a child’s life. Language acquisition is easiest for younger children. We hope to achieve many of our learning goals through play, songs, storytelling, and games.

Kindergarten & Grade 1:


Learning goals for students are to:

  1. Learn greetings in German 
  2. Ask for someone’s name
  3. Colors
  4. Counting at least to 10
  5. Parts of the body 
  6. The alphabet
  7. Animals
  8. Food items 
  9. Seasons, months, and days of the week 

Grade 2: 

Lessons for second grade are similar, except writing vocabulary words is added.



Grades 3 - 8

All students will learn the same vocabulary words as the lower grades. Added to this list are: 

  1. Vocabulary words for school supplies
  2. Family members 
  3. More food items 
  4. More animals
  5. Form short sentences
