Schultüte Video - For those of you who do not know, there is a tradition for children who are starting 1st grade. Every child receives a "Schultüte" on their first day. It will usually be filled with treats and school supplies that will get them through their first day. This video is in a specific German dialect, discussing some of the new first graders and what the teachers think of the youngsters coming into their new school year.
