Kindergarten "Child's Friend" - BULGARIA 

  

March 21

 

   

Spring Day activities: 

Map activity:

The map of Europe is decorated with numbered stickers and small paper flags on each of the European countries. A child starts counting, until another one says "stop" at a certain number. The children find where the number last mentioned is on the map, and have to name the country that has the same number. Then they look for the country's flag and put it beside the number on the map.

 The teacher shows them pictures and postcards from this country and explains about the nature, climate, people, and most famous cities or monuments of the country.  

 

 

Bookshelf activity:

Children pick one of the paper flags and then look in the book shelve for a book with a matching flag stuck on it. That means the book contains stories from the chosen country. The teacher reads a text and afterwards they discuss on the plot, heroes, and morale of the story. The teacher shows illustrations and pictures related to the text. Then children draw illustrations on the most remarkable episode.  

We practice different games, and talk about Europe as a big home for all of our families, our communities and all of us. 

 

Teachers help the children to learn more about Europe through fairytales, postcards, paper flags and an European map.
