Today while I was playing around on Twitter, I came across a link to a description of “Kindergarten Around the World 2011-12!” The organizer of this amazing project, Amy Murray, does a fantastic job describing what all a teacher would have to do in order to make an undertaking like this a success. After reading her description, I wish that I would be able to commit to a project like this but it is just not in the cards for this year and I don’t see how I can swing it next year either because I will be returning from my Maternity leave after the project kicks off. I am just hoping that I can remember this project in two years time so that I can finally try it out in a classroom.
Check out the above link if you have time. How many of you would let your son or daughter participate in a project like this? I think that this is a great way to help our young children understand that the world is a huge place and that we are similar in many ways but so different in other ways.
