Backdrop of Multicultural Day with a stage set up in the classroom and all the students' books ready to be shared with the audience.
Stars were placed on the maps of all the countries we studied.
A view of the front of our classroom including the special touches for families to see.
The backdrop I created using a $1.99 Goodwill sheet and flags and letters created by my students at my school. This was done inexpensively, but students felt very special.
Our welcome table with a sign in sheet, programs, and an evaluation for visitors to fill out.
Definitions discussed during our special morings activities.
With our backdrop discussing diversity, we spent a lot of time discussing what the word diversity means. Students then each put a definition on this chart paper to display.
A sample of student created text, along with a unique item that represents the country which was proudly displayed on their desk during the celebration.
A few more examples of completed student work which each child had a chance to share with the class and all the families involved in our celebration.
I loved teaching the multicultural unit and incorporate many strategies into my students instruction. It was great being able to sing songs, share poetry, and create back covers to convince our audience to read their wonderful created work. My students completely feel like authors during this occasion and are able to justify the work they complete and share with the classroom and the community!
