It's all about who you could be if you had a specific hat! Makes a splendid opportunity to try out hats with the class and decide who we want to be. A famous person? A type of person? Give a person a personality and a personal identity?
In French share this on-line si j'avais un chapeau comme ca turn the page book from the children of l'ecole Leo de la Grange in Saintes France .Will inspire you to create your own I am sure!
Why not let the children take over and ask the questions !
A theme of "Carnival and fancy dress" seems as good a moment as any to listen to a silly rhyme in the target language about hats .Here it is in French with a silly voice on You Tube. It's basically the French version of "my hat it has three corners ".....
And here it is in German...
We will be making lift the flap books with our hats and professions , practising this rhyme "mon chapeau a quatre bosses..." / "mein Hut der hat drei Ecken",missing out key words and speeding up each time we sing it!
Here are some photos I took in France of several fantastic hat shops which always lead to discussion of which hats we might like to buy and wear and what the tools are in the shop window that you would have used in times gone by to make a hat! Hope you find these useful.
