The students at Linda Nolen had quite a treat because we just finished Cultural Awareness Day! This year, our kids traveled to France, Peru, Brazil, India, Jamaica, Australia, Greece, and good ole’ Canada.
I got to work with a team of wonderful teachers (Mrs. Calhoun, Ms. Egan, and Ms. Cole) to create a fabulous learning experience about Jamaica. Our students entered the country with a quick stamp on their passport and were greeted to the lovely rhythm of Bob Marley and the Wailers. Students were invited to learn more about our country by watching our interactive Powerpoint that included a fun video on how to speak Patois. Ms. Calhoun’s class did a wonderful job researching and creating this presentation.
No vacation is complete without sampling the local fare so the kids each got to try Jamaican Grater Cake and a delicious Hibiscus drink. Yum!
Once our bellies were full, we took a quick trip to the beach where we had our photos made at the photo booth.
Then, after a last stamp on their passports, the kids loaded the plane and headed for their next destination. This was a great day!
