These are our proposals for some activities that will help us to know each other on the first evening in Baerum.
To add your own gadget press New Post and add your explanation if necessary.
Baloniku nasz malutki,
rośnij duży, okrąglutki.
Balon rośnie, że aż strach,
Przebrał miarę – no i trach!
Ik stond laatst voor een POPPENkraam
Daar zag ik zoveel POPPEN staan
Ik zei wat doen die POPPEN hier
die POPPEN drinken POPPENbier
die POPPEN drinken POPPENwijn
Wat zullen die POPPEN vrolijk zijn
Here's our mixing gadget dear friends!
In this activity will have fun, get to know each other and take a look at our countries, cultures and traditions.
We need your help as we suggest using some very simple children chants from every country. Every country has these simple songs or chants to be sung in circles where everyone ends up sitting down on the floor. Of course there might be different versions! They do not normally make much sense, but they will help us all to taste the sound of our languages and remind us that playing is one of the best ways towards learning. Not clear enough! Watch this video!
We will also prepare a packet with layers of some typical presents, sweets, images identifying our countries and peoples to circulate around the group and present our identities. Please bring some objects and photos to include in the packet. Every time we sing the song somebody will open the packet and get something out of it: a present or picture! and somebody from the country of origin of the object/picture will briefly explain what it is. Add your own pictures representing your country to this common document and bring your selection printed to our first day meeting in Baerum school for the mixing gadget. There are sections for each of the partners and I have added some examples: culture, cooking, history, and fun!
IMPORTANT! We also need some wrapping paper (5 meters could be enough ) and cellophane. Could the Norwegian team provide that for us? We will need a little while to wrap it all up!
Please fill in the chart with your chant which will help us play and learn together.
