The action of singing connects everyone. In this exercise, a simple hello in different languages is the focus.
A song is put together from saying Hello in different languages. Movements are added to simulate the action.
What We Found
By asking children to say Hell in their native tongue, we ad a fun way for all of them to interact with each other. It’s a simple step towards inclusion and forming a sense of belonging in the class.
How to Start
Find out how many nationalities are present in your class. Make a list of all the different ways to say Hello in their native tongues. Put a few lines together to form a song and teach all the children. Rehearse a few times then perform the song to the school. Perhaps make an event of it by adding décor and some refreshments.
