During this past week we have been celebrating the WEEK OF INCLUSION AND INTEGRATION.
The aim of this project is to highlight the importance of having different culture and different habits with the ultimate goal of including everyone in the school.
It is crucial to have children understanding such an important message since they are 3, 4 and 5 years-old.
We took inspiration from a book by Sepulveda about the slowness of the snail. We invited a group of disabled guys.
They told us about their morning habits and their way to act like a snail. Each class donated them a snail colored as the correspondent classroom.
Some teenager guys from high-school came and showed us musical instruments and played relaxed and calm music with Celtic harps.
We tried to build up several musical instruments with low quality materials in order to play a concert all together on the note of the song: Elizabeth, the snail!
Paper dishes were transformed in castanets, cans in drums and glasses in maraca.
We spent the whole week studying and learning about the meaning of words INCLUSION and INTEGRATION, we have been helped by several books and videos!
