Reflection: Trust and Respect Land, Sea or Air? - Section 2: Activity


Pointing out the difference in the spelling and naming of transportation items in this particular book and in the closing activity is nice for my European students. It provides the class with a discussion point on how each of us may be human but we also have some differences. We discuss how even Mrs. Clapp is used to different words and we recall some of the things we learned during our Around the World unit in December. 

I also take this opportunity for my foreign speaking students to tell us how to say certain forms of transportation in their language. This helps them to feel special and included as well as respected as a person in a community classroom.
