Bringing the world to Grade 1!
Adeeb - a Grade 1 student from GR Saunders Elementary School - and his mother recently spent time teaching his fellow classmates about Adeeb's home country, Banladesh and the celebrations that accompany Asian Heritage Month. Adeeb and his mother taught the students to count from one to 10 in Bangla, how to greet people from Bangladesh and showed students Bangladesh on a world map so they could see how far it is from Canada. The students also learned about the time difference from Canada to Bangladesh and about the traditional clothes that Adeeb and his mother were wearing, as well as a song in Bangla. Speical thanks to Adeeb and his mother for sharing their beautiful culture, traditions and language!
