Mother Tongue Day


 An inspiring morning- one that helps celebrate multilingualism!

Parents are an integral part of our school learning community! This morning, we had Moms and Dads share information from their country through various activities- cooking, sharing the alphabet in their mother tongue, playing games, reading stories and others.

(Language in the PYP, From Principles to Practice, International Baccalaureate, October 2018)
