In preparation for the coming week's Mother Tongue fun, I need the kids to do some homework.
First, each student needs to draw one or two symbols of her or his native culture(s). Interestingly, the exercise of identifying cultural artifacts was not as easy as I assumed it would be.
Therefore, I'm hoping you can help your child identify suitable objects that are associated with your culture (see rough sample below). Basically, you're helping to design a cartoony t-shirt.
The kids know what to do. You would just need to see that it is done.
|Rough Sample (yes, four fingers, I know.)|
The drawing must be on a blank side of a sheet of paper and about the size of an adult hand. Second, each student needs to know how to spell a customary greeting in her or his mother tongue (note sample). One or two words please, if possible.
The image(s) and words will be attached to their cartoon portraits.
Then we'll play Who's Who? with the rest of the school and learn global greetings in the fun.
And it should be good fun, especially if everyone is ready to go Monday morning.
Thanks for the help.
That's all I have this week.
Enjoy your weekend.
