Begin with the role play. Note that tipping is possible but not customary at self-service restaurants, so it’s not part of this role play. There will be a role play with Trinkgeld [a tip] in a later chapter.
During Covid, we will use this Hast du meinen/mein/meine…? overhead instead, and during “regular” semesters, your instructor may instruct you to ignore the “Objekt in der Tasche” assignment in order to use this version of the activity instead.
Instructor collects the objects students brought in a bag, and writes any new words on the board (with their gender)
Everyone now picks an object out of the bag. Students use the language on the overhead to find the object they brought, and to make conversation once they are finished.
Note that this dialogue is an opportunity to practice possessive adjectives in the Nominative and Accusative (mein(e)(n), dein(e)(n)…)
Students who forgot to bring an object pair up with someone who did bring one; these pairs ask “Wer hat unser(e)(n)” and others use “euer/eure(n)” to answer them.
