International Parade Celebrates Belonging and Global Citizenship
Posted 10/19/2015 06:21PM
On Friday, September 25th, ECC students marched in our annual International Parade. The International Parade is the culminating event for our first learning theme of the school year: Belonging and Global Citizenship.

To nurture these concepts in our 2 through 5 year olds, we focus the first weeks at school on building community in the classroom, and by honoring each child's unique background and heritage. Through songs, crafts, stories and activities, our students' classroom experiences celebrate their diverse languages, cultures and traditions.

In the classroom, teachers weave individualized meaning and learning into students' experiences at multiple levels. For example, a focus on flags from around the world not only nurtures and affirms a sense of identity, it provides a meaningful pathway to work with colors, shapes, sizes, and symbols. Parent visits to the classroom to share cultural songs, dances and crafts not only exposes students to a range of cultures, it builds the strong home-school connections that are essential foundations for for student attachment and success.

Our International Parade brought this all together. Through songs, symbols and smiles, it was an opportunity for our youngest students to celebrate and share with our larger Shekou International School community.

Even Mrs. Blankenship's 2D Superstars used the parade as an opportunity to learn about writing small moments from the photos that the class took while attending the parade. As a great beginning to this writing unit, students wrote about the parade using the photos as inspiration.
