National Day Calendar Classroom - December - 2021-2022 - Week 18 - Foreign Language

CLASSROOM – Foreign Language

There are many ways to learn a foreign language in the classroom. National Learn a Foreign Language Month encourages us to look at new languages. It’s a great way to learn about other cultures and our own, too! This week, we offer a several ways to celebrate the observance in your classroom even if you are already teaching a foreign language.

HOW TO OBSERVE in the CLASSROOM – Foreign Language

Download and print this week’s projects to explore other languages. You can also follow the suggestions below to help your students explore the days in their own way. It might surprise you what they discover! We’re often surprised by our own discoveries!

Celebrate Every Day in the Classroom by:

1. Asking a question about the day or observance and finding the answer.
2. Exploring the subject further. Whether you read a book, interview an expert, watch a documentary, or run an experiment, there is always more to learn about the observance.
3. Writing about the day or observance. You can write about what you learned or what the day means to you.
4. Telling someone about the day. You might be sharing information that is helpful to someone. Or, you might brighten someone’s day.
5. Solving a problem. Many observances discuss issues around the world that need fixing. How would you fix it?
6. Being creative. Draw, paint, build, design, bake, create your idea of what the observance means.

Of course, as always, sharing on social media isn’t required; learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.
