Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 1,15, University of Erfurt (Philosophische Fakultät - Fachbereich Anglistik), course: Speaking and Storytelling in the Primary Classroom, language: English, abstract: "Then out rose ... A TRULY MAGNIFICENT BROOM! With seats for the witch and the cat and the dog, A nest for the bird and a shower for the frog. "Yes!" cried the witch, and they all clambered on. The witch tapped the broomstick and whoosh! they were gone."(DONALDSON, SCHEFFLER, 2002) At the end of "Room on the broom", the characters can finally enjoy the magic night.
