Seoul: Diversity in the classroom

Today I visit the first graders in their first lesson: at the beginning of the day, they choose what they would like to work on. At the moment, some of the children are working on post cards to send to their partner class at a primary school in Germany.

The first graders’ classroom is colorful and decorated with different materials, e.g. there are posters showing photos of pupils with their families and short texts where they introduce their parents and siblings. Some of them have also written about where they come from. There are also colorful signs with numbers illustrated with images of differently looking children. The classroom door of year three shows welcome greetings in different languages in a similar manner.
