Here's this week's glimpse into what's happening in and out of our classrooms here in the day school! These feature lessons, activities, centers, and saunters from a different classroom each week.
Today's feature: Explorer’s Language and Culture Lesson
Each week students are taught simple Italian phrases, read stories in Italian and cook and eat Italian food. Along with exposure to language and food, we learn about the people and customs of Italy. We use our explorations to acknowledge and celebrate differences, first, in our own classroom, then in our community and our world.
To provide a meaningful and memorable experience of another culture
To create awareness of other languages and customs
To teach respect for differences
