Many Stories, Many Languages

Name: Constance Vidor

Institution: Friends Seminary

Title of proposed program: Many Stories, Many Languages

Audience: K-4

Books used:
To be decided!

Materials needed:
Picture book versions of folk tales or fairy tales in languages other than English

Brief outline of program or event:
I am fortunate to work in a school that includes a number of families that speak in languages other than English. I´m recruiting parents to read aloud a folk tale or fairy tale in their language for an assembly to take place on or close to International Children´s Literature Day. I will scan the illustrations from each page of each book and project them onto a screen with a digital projector. Each parent will provide a brief summary of the story in English, then read it aloud in the original language while showing the illustrations. I will write back after the program with more details but wanted to share this now in case other people might like to copy this plan!
